Driving from Minneapolis to our home in Orlando, we stopped for coffee at the nearby McDonald's, but noticed a rib joint (with a real smoker in the parking lot). We quickly ditched the coffee idea and stopped at Uncle Joe's for lunch. No hyperbole here: they served us the best ribs we've ever had. The sauces are great, we actually bought a few bottles, but the meat is out of this world. Smokey, but not overpowering at all, and the ribs are moist but tender. There is not much atmosphere in the restaurant, but who cares when you get nice staff, great food and great service. I'd give them a 5 star, but I thought their prices were similar to restaurant prices in Orlando or Minneapolis...still not bad for the wonderful meal. I guess quality never comes cheap.
We always stop here on our way to TN. BYPASS MCDONALDS!! They don't need the money and even if you aren't a bbq fan, whatever Joe's is serving 10 times better than garbage fast food. Come hungry as it is pretty heavy stuff but delicious. I always get the pulled pork but have tried the brisket and that is delicious, too. The meat is excellent and I love all the sauces. The sweet smoke is my favorite and my husband likes the mustard. My only complaint is that they are far away from my hometown. The buns are a tad too buttery but not a deal breaker in my opinion. Just ask for a plain bun!
This is five stars for those of you looking for good BBQ and fried pickles. The atmosphere is part general store, part smoke house. Shirt and shoes may be optional. Hospitality is wonderful. Worth bypassing the fast food to try this.
