Uncle Tom’s BBQ Reopens at Coral Gables

Uncle Tom’s Barbecue originally opened in 1948 and has been closed since last year. After a year pass by, new owner decides to reopens the restaurant on the same location in Tamiami Trail at Coral Gables. Staying true to its original recipe for success from its inception in 1948, the menu will feature genuine pit barbecue dishes such as baby back ribs, spare ribs, chicken, pork, beef or BBQ brisket platters, along with several shareable appetizers to start, an array of salads, sandwiches, bakers (baked potatoes) and mouthwatering desserts. Uncle Tom’s infamous special sauce is also returning to the menu after 15 years. Here is more information about Uncle Tom’s BBQ :


According to Eater :

“I grew up eating at Uncle Tom’s Barbecue, states owner Ariel Rodriguez. My family and I considered it an institution and when the opportunity arose to purchase the restaurant, we jumped at the chance to re-introduce that legacy. We’re not only bringing back the local favorites from the first menu, we’re bringing back the brand’s insanely addicting homemade sauce thanks to the original owners, the Fantis family.” written by Ana Heretoiu.


According to Urban Daddy :

“You’ll know it by the 60-year-old vintage sign out front, still shining thanks to some new LED lights. Walking in, you’ll notice some other new things, like a polished wooden bar and 10 shiny plasma TVs. But don’t worry, the BBQ is straight Old Florida—the menu looks a lot like it did when the doors opened in 1948. So come here with a date who’s up for eating with their hands, and grab a picnic table outside and one of the eight beers on tap. Then, roll up your sleeves and make nice with the Brisket Baby Back Combo served with fries and Texas toast. If you’re feeling especially ambitious, add an Uncle Tom’s BBQ Baker on the side—a baked potato topped with sour cream, cheese, butter and your choice of pulled pork, pulled chicken or rib meat.


According to the Sentinels :

“The special sauce of the original Fantis family from 1948 will return along with pit specialties, such as baby back ribs, brisket, sliced pork and chicken for lunch and dinner daily. New indulgences include corn nuggets and mac n chees baked with brisket or pulled pork. We’re trying to bring vintage style with a new fresh look, new owner Rodriguez says.” written by Susan Bryant.


According to Burger Beast :

“I’m looking forward to the NEW ownership with a NEW menu that will still feature genuine BBQ pit dishes. It’s been spruced up cosmetically too and not only that, a second Uncle Tom’s be opening in Pinecrest (124th & South Dixie Hwy) at the end of the summer.”
