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

Went back after many years of not being at this restaurant. I grew up near by so went a lot during my youth. WOW was I surprised, bad. Just not the same food and bit of a different menu.... Not all BBQ.

I have driven past this establishment for several years, always intending to stop and try their version of BBQ. Being from Texas, I have had my fair share of it and I have to admit, the chicken was grilled with a smokey flavor. BBQ sauce is served table side. It was tasty but the side of cole slaw was served... More

Though our waiter was AMAZING, the food felt short of praise. We took my husband there for Father's Day and well, it was not enjoyed.He left 90% of his plate. He ordered beef brisket. It was so tough. The pulled chicken baker special was very dry.. The corn on cobs had no butter nor was butter brought to us, etc..... More

Visited for the first time since it's reopening. Excellent service even though the place was packed. We had the quarter chicken, the pulled chicken and the sliced pork. All these meats were outstanding! Very nice cole slaw, fabulous mac and cheese. The restaurant is looking very spiffy. Almost every employee and manager approached our table to make sure we were...
