“Love the spare ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Just went there today around 5PM. The food was very good, I had the Spare Ribs and chicken combo with Mac&Cheese. The food was delicious and the person that took our order was very helpful.
The whole place (including the bathrooms) is very clean! Also very affordable!

“Best BBQ in Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

The food is outstanding. The homemade BBQ sauce is the best I've ever encountered in Miami and I grew up here! I'm a huge foodie and love BBQ so I will definitely be back!!

“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
