I brought out of town guests and traveled from out of town to Uncle Joes. It came recommended from my daughter. I read the reviews prior to coming so I knew what to expect...however, I was apalled at the quality of service. I had reservations for the 8 pm service. I reserved 7 but 10 showed up. I clear this with the manager. We ordered 10 entrees at the same time. We were served three and the rest of the table were met with "we're out of this and we're out of that". Meals we're served randomly one person at a time throuout the three hour period. One of my guests ordered a simple salad and was the last to be served. She received rice, cabbage and Mac and cheese. A small saucer of iceberg lettuce with house tomatoes. I was embarassed and requested to speak with manager. She came out defensively. I just wanted her to make it right...at least apologize to the table rather than ignore us. So sad because the food and band was great. I would not recommend this place and will not be returning...it took three hours to complete a meal which did not include appetizers or desserts.

Was on an official visit with my daughter and was introduced to this restaurant on 47th street. Before I went in, I had a totally different vision going thru my head. I ordered the jerk salmon and it blew me away. As we ate, a live band came in to play and it was very good jamaican music. I really enjoyed the food and music. Will definently revisit this location. The only con is trying to keep the staffs attention when needed. But overall, wonderful place to dine.

When I order ahead, there is never no mention there is no more wings ... Jerk chicken wings is a favorite why can't they stock up on their best seller...

Uncle Joe is very friendly and he is usually at his south side location on 47th and King Drive across from Harold Washington Theatre. The restaurant is top class and clean and beautifully decorated, The food is delicious and fresh good qualtiy food of chicken, meats, pasta and vegetables used. Lovely place to sit in at the restaurant and sensational for a provate party, reception, event in its party room. I love the food. The Uncle Joe location in Hyde Park is very good as well.

A friend and I wondered into this restaurant not knowing what to expected. It was a very pleasant surprise. The wonderful spices, sauces and flavors overwhelmed my taste buds and tingled my tongue! The atmosphere was very serene and the view delightful. The staff was extremely polite. I would recommend it to anyone. A great place for a spicey date.

Don't recall how I found out about Uncle Joe's. But hen I did it was on Stoney Island. I travelled from W. Suburbs to get it. The wait was ALWAY for long, but I waited. I'd only ordered wings for the longest time. A friend went once and ordered Jerk catfish; she raved about it. I followed them to the 47th location. During a lunch break I went in to sit sown for a dinner and ordered wings to go. Honestly the dinner was good BUT I think it would have been better had it been freshly prepared. Seems as if it had been warmed up. Customer service is NOT all that good never has been. But I love those wings, although I think the wings are a little to costly. I'm going out there again and sit down to see if there is a difference in food & service after 3. Oh, let me add that I've been to the one in Hyde Park and to me they're not as good as the one on 47th. BBS w/ an updated review.
