Here we are with our first Restaurant Review of 2016 and this time it’s BBQ.
Uncle Bub’s, an award winning family owned BBQ started its one and only joint 17 years ago in Westmont, IL. Even after “award winning BBQ”, its hard to believe that they are restricted to one location,to keep it the best instead of making it a franchise.
What’s so special about this place ?
BBQ – Their famous BBQ is an ultimate example of their dedication for it, along with the secret spices…served with two options mild and a spicy one. Be it brisket, ribs or pulled pork, each meat is “slow cooked” to provide the charred & smoky flavor to it.
Awards- They have received various awards such as first place in Rib Category at Ribfest Chicago 2014 and many more like this.
Interior and Ambiance- This place resembles a roadhouse with some quirky interior. You have to order at the counter and you will get a waiting number in the form of hen or rooster maybe..The lamps over your head are actually hanging metal buckets.
What to order ?
Well! in case you are here for first time and confused as we were,then you can get started with:
The famous Uncle Bub’s Sampler Platter It has a bit of everything, meat, ribs , super soft briskets and you get to choose 2 sides from a handful options, fried Mac and Cheese and Hand cut French fries are our personal favorites.
Baby Back Ribs Do get your hands dirty with smoky, well cooked Baby back ribs and you will never regret it. We opted for the half slab and trust me it was a mouthwatering deal.
Uncle Joe Burger 1/2 pound grilled burger with pulled pork, topped with cheddar cheese, pickles, lettuce and fresh tomatoes also served with two sides. The first bite was the burst of grilled and smoky flavors of tender pork. Definitely, this is one of the best burger we ever had.
Uncle Bub’s Wings As I am in love with traditional wings since I came to States, so I try them every now and then but Uncle Bub’s Wings are distinct…. juicy from inside & crisp from outside. They have a unique blend of flavors, as usually they use their own recipe for making them so good with secret spices and seasonings. Do not forget to add-on a mug of Beer.
If you are in Chicago or have any plans to visit,then Uncle Bub’s should be on your list for memorable BBQ experience.
Location: 132 South Cass Avenue
