“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Everything was delicious got the BBQ combo and shared. I don't understand the comment by Frank V it is BBQ but if you think BBQ is about the sauce you don't know good BBQ. Prices are good, service was excellent, really enjoy this place.

“I Used to live a few blocks from Uncle Tom's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This place changed about 10 years ago. It was up until then an old South type Bar B Que with a unique and excellent molasses based sauce. Used to eat here 6-8 times a month in the 70's. It has now become a Latin Style Bar B Que joint, just AWFUL. It was a shock to me the last time I ate here, I really used to love the the food and atmosphere. It has changed just like Miami.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Great lunch specials until 3 pm. I had the ribs with two sides and soup or salad for under $7, great deal! Service and atmosphere were great too. Can't wait to go back. By the way, ribs were delicious!

“Very Good Ambience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

The food was great, wish the restaurant was bigger. The music was excellent. The guitarist is great , think his name was William and he plays very good. Next time I'll go, I'm going to ask him to play a song for me....Love baby back ribs.. Yummy!!!
