This was actually pretty good BBQ, not necessarily the best I've had, but it's convenient and enjoyable. Good smoky flavor, good sauce, only complaint was the sausage, it was comparable to something I could have bought at the grocery store. I'll definitely return when I don't feel like driving all the way across town for Rudy's.

My wife and I went to Uncle Dan's Bar-B-Que recently. I ordered the two meat plate, and she the one. The first rule of any barbecue restaurant is to make reasonably sure that the portions being served are ample enough that the customer does not leave hungry. The portions were weighed, but were still disappointingly small. There was very little... More

Recently moved to a bigger, new location not far from their old location. BBQ is as good as ever. We especially like the pulled pork sandwich. Have served their BBQ to guests who also give rave reviews.

Great atmosphere and I am sure it is really buzzing in summer. Food was hot and quickly prepared to order. Staff are extremely friendly and polite and I love the football paraphernalia in the hallway. Great value for money and would definitely recommend this for a tasty meal with great service.

Very good bar-b-que. We tried the sliced beef, chopped beef, sausage and ribs. All were very good. One person in our party ordered the hamburger and said they really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is typical BBQ restaurant. Would definitely be happy to return.

There's a lot of space for searing and a private room that can be ordered for parties. Food was good, but some tasted too homemade. Parking can be a nightmare!

One of our local co-workers took us here for lunch and it was a great afternoon for BBQ! Not knowing anything the counter man was genuinely interested in seeing that I knew all about their offerings and how to order. I had the 4-way combo and it was delicious. It included smoked turkey, sausage, spare ribs, and brisket. An excellent... More

Let me preface that I am not a huge barbecue fan. I had Uncle Dan's pulled pork and could not stop eating it. I had mine with the spicy sauce. It was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy, spicy but not too much so. The side dishes are just okay, I had green beans and butter beans. They needed extra seasoning.... More
