Went to Uncle Ellders for first time today. Had lunch and found the food to be truly memorable - from my pulled pork to my wife's catfish - it was worth the walk over in the cold and wet. Waitress was friendly and attentive -...More

We LOVE this place! Small restaurant on a side street, but well worth the discovery. The barbeque melts in your mouth and the macaroni and cheese... OMG... You can't go wrong with Uncle Elder's.

Where is the old staff? Today we went for a late lunch...arrived at 1:30, sat down and was acknowledged - drinks were taken and then no one ever came back. The waitress stated she would be bringing our drinks but they were waiting on glasses...More

This is some of the best slow smoked BBQ in our area. The succulent pulled pork is tantalizing whether on a plate or in an artisan bun sandwich. Side dishes like fried Okra can't be beet. Service is great and Elder gives his personal attention...More
