Always good food, service, just wish they had delivery and I would enjoy them more often .I don't live far but far enough to make it inconvenient sometimes

We've been going to UB's for years. Classic country cooking with the best smoked, seasoned and tender pork I've had. We're always impressed by the friendly service (Brooke was especially cheerful as our order-taker and waitress tonight) and the consistently good food.

I live just a few blocks away and was delighted when a rib place opened up do close. Have tried Uncle Bub's a number of times over the years, but always end up with the same opinion. The ribs are great, but the side orders are not very good. I should just order slabs of ribs and make the rest... More

The BBQ is pretty good. Nice smoke flavor. We used to go here fairly often, and there was always a wait. The last time we went on a Friday night it was half empty. The places needs something new to re-energize. The interior feels claustrophobic and dark.

Everything is good. Pulled pork, corn, mashed potatoes, etc. You can't go wrong with ordering anything on the menu, though the pulled pork is the reason to go.

This is an older restaurant in Westmont that consistently wins awards for BBQ. They have an extensive menu of beef, pork and chicken. I had the chicken recently and it was excellent. It is a destination restaurant for casual dining

Uncle Bub's , not exciting, standard BBQ. The food is good, just doesn't excite you. I compare Bub's to Famous Dave's. just easier on ones budget. If you want your taste buds excited try Hog Wild on Pulaski in Midlothian.

Food is better than Famous Dave's at a fraction of the price. Atmosphere is laid back, family friendly. The best is the OWNER can be seen at any given moment wandering the dining area, greeting guests, refilling drinks(even though it is a self serve drink station). And TIL that the brisket is smoked at the House of Jerky in WI... More

Good BBQ in the burbs. Nothing to write home about, just a decent brisket sandwich. I do like how they have Green River.

We drove past Uncle Bub's and decided to stop in for some dinner to-go. Guy at the register seemed annoyed as we tried to decide what to get, this was our first time in. I had a beef brisket wrap, with beans and slaw. Best part of my meal were the beans, very good. The slaw was tasteless. Brisket was... More
