    Since Uncle Sam's was out of ribs, I ordered the 1/4 chicken plate with 3 sides and a big meal with an extra side. When I got home and opened the containers this is what it looked like!!! How can you advertise serve 8 when clearly the big meal deal served 1/2.. I called the restaurant, the line was busy..I continued to call and the owner (Sam) answered, I told Sam the meal is skimpy, he replied thats the size of the chicken and pork, he also told me to bring the meal back the next day...What was my family suppose to eat today if I brought the meal back tomorrow?? He was nonchalant about the whole thing!!! Started eating the potatoe salad and found hair in it!!!!!! Called back no answer, after this experience lm, pretty sure we won't go back...Not asking for charity ONLY customer satisfaction..(See Pics)

    Absolutely the best ribs I've found in the Birmingham area. I eat here whenever I'm in town.

    So, this is my first time going to Uncle Sam's BBQ. I've heard so much about it over the course of the time that I've been living in Birmingham. I happened to be over on that side of town and decided to try them out. I wanted to give him four or five stars, but the barbecue ribs/chicken was just okay and the potato salad was mystifying to say the least. 😏I never had any potato salad prepared like that. It was indeed new to me. Will I go back again? Yes! I would definitely go again and try something different! 👍

    I gave 5 stars for the portion size, price, and that loaded bake potato!!!!! Im a full moon (ribs) kind of girl, the ribs were not bad it just taste like the ribs we do at home. The potato was so good, im going back for that potato. I had the weekend special with 2 ribs and 1/2 chicken white with a loaded potato for like $12.00. It also make sense to call in your order before you come, it is a busy place. Once you call in your order don't go through the drive thru, pull in a parking spot for call in orders and go wait at the door of the restaurant, some one will come get your payment and bring your food. The menu is online as well.

    Ordered over $400 worth of food… lady with dark hair, shaved on side, with the braid was rude … stating I was early and that the food hadn’t been started on. My self and 2 other customers witnessed the attitude and mishandling of food. She had to run out the door to retrieve an order from a customer because she gave him someone else’s food. Just would appreciate better customer service.

    Food was great! Drive thru cashier (young man) was awful! As I was saying that I wanted plates to be separated, he interrupted to say they don't do separate orders. I had to tell him that plates need to be bagged separately. We got two plates in one bag and one in the other and had to sort through them once we reached our first stop. Before we left the drive thru, I asked for a menu. Not only did he close the window, he turned his back to me. One of our guests was new to Uncle Sam's and said he didnt think he'd be returning with that serving of bad attitude! Nonetheless, I blew the horn to get the rude cashier’s attention and asked why he'd closed the window and turned his back when I asked for a menu. He replied that he thought I was talking to someone in the back seat. How would my passenger be able to give me one of Uncle Sam's menus? Thanks but no thanks for this bad experience at one of our favorite places. It's interesting how a bad experience can leave a bad taste in your mouth.

    Food still tastes good and portions are good except for the ribs. Last three or four times I ordered ribs there was hardly any meat on them. This place used to be packed up until a few months ago but it mainly looks empty now.

    I don't know what's going on with their food but uncle Sam's has been my go to spot every Friday. I'm ending it today. Last 5 visits chicken and ribs were terrible. Overcooked, cold, and tasteless. They are drowned in sauce to make up for the bland taste. Meat is smoked over a pit but does not have a bit of smoke flavor. I always ask for sauce on the side so I can enjoy the flavor. The sauce didn't even compliment the meat today. Just awful!

    Best BBQ in Hueytown. Food is great, atmosphere is quant, prices are reasonable and the portions are enough that you may have leftovers! It is a busy place, but so worth the wait for a table or going through the drive-through.

    I've never stopped. Line always around the building... Tonight I went into dining room placed my order and it wasn't anytime at all that they called me. Three plates fully loaded under $50.00 Customer service was so sweet, competent and fast. Potato salad, coleslaw and fries are tasty. Rib tips are generous with tender well smoked and seasoned meat. So good. Thank you!!!

    The food and service were good. The beans tasty but had a little more juice than beans. Don't understand why there's a $.95 mark-up when substituting a 4pc onion rings. They are the same price individually as the other side $3.50. So why are they over charging customers an extra $.95 when there is no increase in price for the subtituded item.?

    Uncle Sam's is always on point. Never been disappointed here, with anything. My favorite potato salad of all time. About 15 miles from my home, but worth the drive each and every time! Not a quiet dine-in experience, but a fun one if you've never seen how hopping good they are!

  • 1/5 Jasmonique W. 1 year ago on Google
    The staff are ok at times. The food used to be great but between the last visit I made for a slice of pie that tasted like it was made with dirty dishes and utensils at a premium price of $5 and the FB post that went viral of someone finding a roach in their baked beans and the only response they gave was taking their FB page down???? I'm OFFICIALLY good.

    Food not good, and I had to wait in a long drive thru for it. I ordered rib plate, I wanted bake beans, they had run out, so I got cold slaw. When I got home I had ribs, which was okay, cold slaw, and potatoe salad. Neither of which was good.

    My French fries and chicken tenders were over cooked. I trusted them and when I got home and opened the bag my meal was over cooked too crispy. I was to Faraway and did not want to go back. If I ever go back there will be no more tipping I tipped once by buying cover crispy fries and chicken tenders.

    I ordered the ribs, not worth bringing home. They tasted horible, not a lot of meat on the bones. I asked for sauce on the side, they did put the sauce on tje side but the ribs were cooked in some kind of sweet sauce. 3 of 5 rib bones had some meat on them but the other 2 were burnt to a hard crisp. Service was excellent and fast

    Surprise lunch brought to me by my Great Uncle while at work. Great timing, the BBQ chicken tender, juicy, and saucy. Cole slaw good, beans are awesome,fries are good, and the bread a buttery toasted. Awesome food and Barbecue sauce!

    I had the BBQ chicken plate with potato salad & baked beans! The sauce from this restaurant has always made me come back for more. I've never really favored any other BBQ joints sauce unlike I do with Sam's. It's not only the BBQ but also the sauce they make with the baked beans. My hands down favorite thing to eat here is the potato salad! All my life I have disliked potato salad but Sam's is off the chain! It isn't made this yellow mustard like your typical kind. You just have to try it! And what really seals the deal is their pies! It's literally the "cherry on top" of ending a very good meal!

    So glad the dining area is open again. We tried the nachos since they were a newly featured item..they were so yum. I love their pulled chicken and their sides are better than Bob Sykes imo.

    The service is a little slow only because they're constantly packed with people. Because their food is absolutely amazing, quality! You're looking for a good barbecue, this is a place.

    My family and I love to eat at Uncle Sams it's one of our favorite BBQ places. I'd usually give them a four star rating. However there needs to be improvements made in order to get a better review. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting on Saturday Afternoon! Spider webs were in places that if cleaned properly shouldn't have been there. In the woman's bathroom there was a dead roach on the floor! And I know that certain employees had to have seen the bug when I was there...bc I personally seen one of them go in there while I was eating. Yet they didn't bother cleaning the bathroom. It really makes you wonder if the Kitchen is as disgusting as the bathrooms!! We are huge fans of the ribs here, but the ribs were lacking flavor this time. Not to mention there was tons of fat on majority of our ribs. Definitely not what you except to get from a place like this who are known for excellent rib! The baked beans were excellent as always. The young man who took my order was very nice. I'm used to dealing with a unpleasant woman who usually has a bad attitude. So it was great to actually have a great friendly employee for a change. Usually the staff are not very friendly.
