Saw it on "Chicago's Best" and had to try the skirt steak and eggs. I was not disappointed. The steak was cooked as perfect medium rare, as were the eggs over easy. Huge steak portion with almost no waste was excellent. Hash browns and toast were included, as were a few sprigs of cilantro. Service was excellent too. Highly recommended.

Went to Uncle Mike's primarily for the Filipino breakfast with my wife, son & daughter-in-law and their 2 small girls (2 and 9 days). We were not even sitting down before we were asked if the 2-year-old could have some chocolate milk - "on Uncle Mike". From that point on, we were in love with the service and it was... More
