Uncle Jones Bar-B-Que “Nothin-Mo-Betta”. . . Serving phenomenal Fried Chicken, Fried Okra, and super moist corn bread.
Seriously! Nothing is more better!
I have never really had soul food…so asking my resident soul-food correspondent, Marc Douglas, he recommended a few places and one of them was Uncle Jones BBQ. I am grateful for the recommendation.
Though I was a bit nervous . . . BUT what was there to be nervous about? This restaurant defines “hole-in-the-wall” where their style of cooking is HOME STYLE! The service is great and the people are very friendly and welcoming. They have a charming touch on the front of their menu underneath their smiling pig…
I wonder how many people actually notices the note at the bottom … let alone actually asked Uncle Jones to cater for their recent divorce.
Their menu had all the basic bbq combos you could ask for… but then since I could not decide I went with the dinner buffet at $11.95. It is a great value to get the chance to sample everything on the menu! They have it every night and actually, every night is a bit different. Some nights would be featuring meat loaf, fried fish, fried chicken, or bbq ribs.
I was lucky, it was FRIED CHICKEN NIGHT! They had so many dishes and there was just not enough room in my stomach to have it all.
They must have a secret fried chicken batter because their fried chicken was so crispy and the seasoning on the chicken was absolutely MEGA YUMMO. I got there right on time and everything was just coming out from the kitchen. It was my first time having fried okra and I would have to say that I honestly really like it. The ribs was moist and tender and matched really well with the fried okra.
The pork was very bland but that was nothing a little hot sauce couldn’t handle. Nothin Mo Betta than the taste of home made macroni and cheese, soft, creamy, and ful of flavor. I think I could have been content with eating just eating that! The cabbage was cooked just right and not a bit over cooked. I felt like I went to a friend’s house for dinner!
This one is easy... AWESOME! moist and soft, everything you could imagine from a good cornbread.
All together all the food was delicious and the service was great at a great value. Everyone is super friendly and definitely family oriented. This is a place to go if you are missing your dose of home style cooking! They also provide take and have a drive thru window at their restaurant.
