so after a day of fishing at WEDOWEE, my wife and I drive to Oxford and order and take out. We drive back to WEDOWEE to discover that the meats were left off of the order. I can understand forgetting the Mac n cheese but not meats!! The last time that we visit this dump

I also love their chocolate pie! My only complaint is that they don't serve alcohol bc they have been "working on" their... More

Here is a place you and your family will be busting at the seems and carrying home left overs at a very low price. Service is always fast and friendly and the food is always hot and served as ordered

We were seated promptly on arrival. Server had a smile, but didn't know their menu. My wife ordered the chicken quesadilla, and I ordered the hamburger steak. Both meals were over 10 dollars. Sweet tea is 2.25 each. I can't understand a bbq place that doesn't have cornbread and a good selection of beans. The quesadilla lacked taste. Fries were... More

I wish I could give negative stars to this establishment. Our family was seated and waited a good 10 minutes before anyone even came to give us menus/get drink order. It took another 15 to actually get her to return with the drinks and take our food order. During this time every table around us was complaining about the service.... More

Their catfish dinner is better than Top of the River. Better tastin' and far better sides. Their hamburgers are VERY good also. Fresh meats and vegetables are part of their secret plus good recipes. Try their squash casserole. Vegetarian -- no problem. Their vegetable plate is VERY good. And their chicken BBQ salad -- it's NOT what you think. It's... More

Uncle Sam's has quality smoked barbecue. I had the chicken and it was great. They have steak fries which I loved and good sweet tea. What else could you want in a barbecue place.

I love eating here but you had better bring your appetite because they don't skimp on their portions. Definitely my favorite place to eat.

Thank love54
