You’d be well advised to pay attention to this restaurant’s logo, which claims that Uncle Joe’s specializes in jerk chicken. That’s not to say the impossibly tender curried goat or smoky oxtail should be skipped over, just that the peppery jerk chicken is not to be missed. Tasty side orders, such as rice and beans and creamy mac and cheese, disappear early in the evening, as does the caramel cake, so get there early. The reggae floating through the air of the small dining room seems to mellow out most of the crowd.

Food is amazing and affordable. You can get a whole jerk chicken for 10.00 , plus its a Hyde Park staple restaurant been there for over 30 yrs.
My brother and I visited Uncle Joe's after a visiting the U of Chicago Hospital. I am easy when it comes to food but Bob loved it even after a lengthy wait. We are you to the legend of our family.😀😀😀👑
