Been in the Waco for almost a year and to date the best BBQ. The white Cole slaw is amazing. BBQ sauce is hardy with favor. Sweet tea to match your Texas taste.

Uncle Dans catered our Baylor graduation party at Cameron park for 22 people. I live out of state and they made it easy to plan and handled all the logistics. There was plenty of food for everyone and Uncle Dans cared for every detail. Delivery...was on-time and set up efficiently. The food was excellent!!! The event was a success thanks to Uncle Dans. I highly recommend!More

Our first time. Recommended by my nephew. We got the Tour of Texas with brisket, ham, pulled pork, jalapeno sausage with chili beans and yellow potato salad and the rib plate with coleslaw and baked beans. Everything was very good and tender. Brisket melted in...your mouth, the pulled pork had good bark and smoke flavor. The ribs were meaty and fall off the bone. The sides were good also. The only thing I would suggest is get the sauce on the side and try it before you put it on the meat. The sauce was a little to ketchupy and seemed to have a odd twang. We got the Texas Tators to go and they were piled high with cheese and brisket. I will review them later.More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Silo's. We were the only folks there at 1pm. They have a robust menu and we both ordered a 3-meat plate. Ribs, brisket and sausage and Pulled Pork, ribs, and jalapeno sausage. The ribs were juicy and had...a nice pull...not over or underdone. The brisket was really tasty after a dip in their sauce. The sausage was super bland...there was no hint of jalapeno at all. The pulled pork was lean and super tasty. Their slaw was tasty as was their potato salad and baked beans. Servers were very friendly and helpful. Really good value for the amount and quality of food.More

Years ago our son wanted a BBQ baked potato for his 21st birthday but no place in our town was open on that date so we had his party at Uncle Dan’s. Our son passed away a few years later and we decided this year...we wanted to remember him by getting a BBQ baked potato at Uncle Dan’s. The experience was absolutely amazing, from the delicious food to the wonderful employees. Several stopped to ask how things were and to speak with our very talkative 3 year old granddaughter. That personal touch made the evening special and helped our hearts. We will be making it a yearly tradition to remember our Jon.More

I had a combo plate of brisket and smoked turkey, with a side of yellow potato salad. He had brisket and the sausage combo with a side of yellow and white potato salad. I also selected the new menu item...Mac and cheese. Nothing to write...home about. BarBQ sauce was excellent. The place was very clean, service was quick.More

I was very disappointed in the quality. We ordered the small family pack - one normal sized rib and two very small rib pieces. Hardly any brisket. Frankly, I was embarrassed. The texture of the banana pudding was a little gritty to me. I don’t...care for the mealy texture of their style of potato salad (they process the potatoes into tiny pieces, no chunks) but it tasted very good. I tried as I live near Waco but there are many better places for bar-be-que.More

Just really good food. Our son and daughter-in-law live near here with three kids. We get a family pack, around $59 but works for two meals for four adults and three kids. Lean brisket and jalapeño sausage are hard to beat. Steady business but not...crazy busy. Just show up, order, out the door in five minutes. Bring cash for a tip. My wife loves the cole slaw, pinto beans are great.More

Nothing fancy, but just good food. We were tired of Christmas fare and wanted some Barbecue. This is close to my son’s house. We got a pound of lean brisket and a pound of jalapeño sausage. Both were perfect, sides were great. Servers capable and...friendly. Highly recommended.More

We went into Uncle Dan's because my husband drives by it every day on his way to work. He had seen people smoking food and thought it would be a fun place to try. We each got something different: I got sausage; he got ribs....The food was very bland and surprisingly boring. My sausage tasted like a hot dog and the sauce reminded me of ketchup. My husband's ribs were decent and were smoky...hence the three star rating. The sides were okay, but lacking in flavor. If the price had been about $10 less, it would have been a good value, but we paid over $25 for the food.More
