I got there Saturday night, about 8:15pm. Ok, I know, its a Saturday night at 8:15... but even so. Most times Ive been to UJ's, its been in and out in a couple minutes. Maybe once or twice there have been 1 or 2 guys in line ahead of me. Not this time.
This time, there was a line filling up the small indoor area, and spilling out the door. And not just spilling out the door, but a good 15-deep outside the door! It took me well over a half-hour to get my food!
I had the good fortune to accompany gastro gnome on said food crawl, and I thought the tips were the best I've had. Good smoke factor, nicely salted, perfect balance between tender meat and chewy bark. That said, I think I prefer the links I had at Barbara Ann's a few weeks ago. My ideal tip & link combo may well involve tips from Uncle John's and links from Barbara Ann's.gastro gnome wrote:This was the first time for all of us. We dined al trunko (only ones in the area, I saw) on a regular tips & links combo (this was the 3rd stop in a food crawl, mind you). The tips were very good, but that hot link was something else. All the accumulated juices even made me want to eat the food service fries!

Waiting line at opening bell made my day.c8w wrote:Its gone mostly unremarked on LTH (well, a couple of posts above).. but Uncle John's seems to have changed completely, in terms of its popularity. WGN TV ovbiously has a *huge* reach on the SouthSide!

Spoke to Mack this morning, new pit is going in on Friday and he hopes to be up and running by July 1st or before.glennpan wrote:Mack seems confident that they will be back open in a week or so. If you are planning a visit in the near future, make sure you call first.
Vitesse98 wrote:I know even asking this is sacrilege for some, but ... I picked up a combo order of tips and links from UJ's today, then promptly stuck it in the fridge for dinner. What do y'all recommend I do to reheat it for dinner that will destroy the flavor/texture the least? Sauce, at least, is on the side.
