The food was great, 1,2, & 3 meat dishes, 2 sides to choose for every plate, and sauce applied afterwards. This time I got pulled pork, my friends a variety of pulled pork and brisket with rolls. The sides were fried okra, mashed yams, potato baked or mashed, green beans, & black eyed peas. Reasonable prices.

Love, love their beef brisket! Sides were great too. Went twice in one weekend :) sort of cafeteria style, but staff are super friendly. Reasonable prices, nothing fancy but great food.

Placed a to go order. Large drink average sized, beef tasty, turkey seemed from grocery shelf in refrigerated section, sauce was not good. Sides were great, yellow potato salad and beans. Portions too small. Owners need to visit competitors to find out that the 1980's style if doing business is passé.

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!
