Everything I have had here has been very good. Very good pulled pork and pulled chicken. It is relatively cheap as well.

They catered an event I was at a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was going to be your typical barbeque. Was I surprised! I had the ribs and chicken. Delicious! The chicken was moist and tender and the ribs were fall off the bone good. The mac and cheese, cole slaw, and mashed potatoes were also very good.... More

I've been to Uncle Jimmy's twice. The first time I tried the half rack of ribs with corn bread and cole slaw. Today I tried the pulled chicken with mashed potatoes and corn. Both were very good. I would go back a third time!

Was in the Brooklyn area & searched the area for a BBQ place to have lunch. Found Uncle Jimmy's, had a coupon & figured we'd give it a try. The hostess/waitress was very friendly and attentive, answering a few of our questions before we ordered. We started off with the Mac & cheese bites, then had combo platters for our... More

We had two creamed spinach ,grilled vegetables and a baked potato. Corn muffins and biscuits were brought out, too. Each item was hot and flavorful. Service was pleasant. Price was very reasonable for... More

The prices seem a bit high but the quality of the food is on point. BBQ is authentic and served in sensible portions. It's not a roll out the door full but you get your money's worth. Try the ribs and the BBQ chicken for reliable staples. Dining room is not really a romantic setting but the attentive service will... More

My husband is a BBQ lover and we're often looking for an easy to get to spot where we can enjoy some BBQ without the fuss. Well this is it! Uncle Jimmy's casual setting is family friendly and easy to get to. The service was good and so was the food. I'm sure I've had better but for the price... More

Generally drive from NJ to have lunch w adult son. We've eaten here before and this time it was just really, really good!! They had a special of barbecue 'riblits' (yummy and leftovers!) and we both had the mac & cheese 'balls' for the side (I loved 'em, just a little more salt). Our very nice server asked if we...

We loved our dinner tonight at Uncle Jimmy's! It was totally delicious and the service was great. Our waitress (I'm so sorry I don't remember her name) said she was only on her 3rd shift but she was great! We will definitely be back. I'd recommend the sweet and savory BBQ sauce- it was awesome!

I go to Bay Ridge on Sundays for lunch with my son. He recently moved to this part of Brooklyn so we visited this barbecue joint. Son was pleased they had excellent beer choices. I got the brisket plate with country fries; son got a sampler platter for 2 (so he could take some home). We both very much enjoyed... More
