Uncle Tom's Barbecue readies for reopening in Miami

Bite into a taste of Old Florida as Uncle Tom’s Barbecue reopens soon at 3988 SW 8th St. in Miami.

The restaurant, originally opened in 1948 and closed since last year, will be located in the same spot with new owners.

Look for baby back ribs, spare ribs, chicken, pork, beef brisket, salads and bakers (baked potatoes). Of special note: The restaurant’s “special sauce” is returning to the menu after 15 years.

Exact opening date is TBD, but the restaurant says it will be sometime in May. A second Uncle Tom’s is expected to open in Pinecrest this summer.
