A little bit pricey and small portions, but at the end the flavor justified the price. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. We will go back again

Music is good, a fun mix. Service was friendly and good. The important part, the food, was also very good. Wings were... More

Native Miamians, we looked forward to Uncle Tom's reopening, this was our second visit since. We sat down just before 6 pm with only two other tables occupied by a couple and a family, already eating. Waited 10 minutes at table till someone came by to offer drinks, there were at least 5 servers on the floor, mostly chatting with... More

We went to the restaurant twice, the end of june and back the end of August. Very good BBQ sandwiches, very good sauce, atmosphere as it has to be in a BBQ spot. nice service. When we go back to miami in the summer, we go back to uncle tom's.

Ate dinner here. We were looking for an original Bar B Q place and this is it. The ribs were the kind you have to bite off the bone not the frozen stuff you get at all the other places and then they just heat it up and put sauce on it. this is the real thing. The brisket was... More

FOUR stars on the strength of two menu items alone: Baby Back Ribs & Street Corn. EXCELLENT on both and they are, by far, the best baby back ribs I've had in Miami Dade County. Bar none. I will visit here again and again JUST to eat these two items. The ribs were SO good (not a hint of porky-ness... More

I have been to Uncle Tom's about a half dozen times since they have re-opened a few months ago. It has been a wonderful experience every time. This is what we needed...good, solid, genuine BBQ. The sauce is from the original family. The owners are warm & inviting as is the staff. I have mostly had the ribs and/or the... More
