Phillip Seavey

Best BBQ in town.

Val M

Great food and friendly service. The sauces and soda choices were fantastic. The jalapeno mashed potatoes left something to be desired, I think they may have been from a mix, not real potatoes.

Andrew Kosarko

Have yet to have a bad experience here. Can't say their menu is the best graphically designed as it can be hard to really hone in on specific meals and what they entail but the food is better than most BBQ places. Since the remodel the inside looks beautiful and is kept clean; which improves the experience.

Raymond cardito-ayoub

Brisket was a little lean for my blood but the wifey liked it. Burnt ends were tasty, and the vinegar sauce was spot on. I will go back to try the ribs the next time. Careful squeezing the sauce!

Katalin Berger

If your looking for some really good BBQ. This is the place you should check out. If your ever in West Haven CT. You should definitely hit up uncle Willie's. I love the burnt end and Mac and cheese. Make sure you put on your GPS you might drive right passed it.

Down home atmosphere. Whenever I come from Delaware back home to new haven, ct. I always stop at uncle willie's. The food is sooooo good

Brisket was tender, but lacked flavor. The bun it was served on was good. Mac and cheese was dry. I may revisit this place to give a more fair assessment. The staff was pleasant. It just reminded me too much of fast food, not real bbq.

C Hayes hayes

Great ribs

Radeo Flyer band Fly

all i got to say is omg! was amazing


Amazing service and the best BBQ in CT. The beef brisket and burnt ends/Mac& cheese are my favorite --with the 50/50 sauce it's a perfect pair. Home style cooking and food made with love! You can't go wrong with any thing you order. Beef, Chicken,Pork's all cooked and prepared to perfection. In my opinion, the West Haven Location is better than the Seymour one. But Uncle Willie's is a staple in my household.

BBQ done right!

Unique Property Options

Hamburger $6.99 is actually tasty. However either the cook can't read or he doesn't follow directions. Something told me to chk my order before leaving, glad I did so this visit I will rate Uncle Willie's three stars.

Sissy Sis

Disappointed with the Mac & cheese!! Not southern or northern style. Disgusting

Michael Catlin

Tastes like home and I'm from Texas. Will definitely be coming back. Pulled pork sandwich and jambalaya is the way to go!

Eric Vincent

Brisket was fantastic, mac n cheese was good but a bit on the bland side. Would eat there again in a heartbeat.

Matt Obergfell

I used to go to Memphis a lot and I've eaten some of the best ribs there and Uncle Willies ribs cut against those. They are extremely tender and the wood smoke is dope. I combined the sweet and spicy sauce because both were fabulous. Will return.

Hidden treasure for bbq lovers

Steve Cote

Simple good food. Not fancy

flo h Edwards

Old ribs

Mary Pabon

James Norton

Awesome food

Michael Taylor

Over the past few years, this BBQ place has slipped in both quality and value. The ribs and burnt ends dinners we ordered were tasty, but not served hot. While a Luke warm dish would normally be awful, the flavorful prep of the meat made it ok. The coleslaw was spot on, and the sweet potato apple combo was also delicious. This place is not fancy, and has plenty of napkins (paper towels) to keep you clean. The place is right off I95, so it's easy to get to. Not as good as it had been years ago, it's still worth a visit.

Richard Korab

Did not get the BBQ got hot dogs. The roll were more than a day old. The hot dog was anorexic. The reason for the two stars was for the service the guy at the counter was awesome. Note if you approach or leave this place from the wrong you take your life at risk.

lain galion

This place has gotten better over time. The lunch deals are awesome. I come here a few times a month. The quality is consistently good. Can't get enough of their fries. I hope they fix their soda machine. I'm a fan of the Pineapple flavor

Kyle Bassoli

Dave Hochman

Three of us stopped in today at Uncle Willie's. We each had a two meat combo. The price was about eighteen $. Between us we had the baby back ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket. All were wonderful. The coleslaw was an amazing treat very different than anywhere I've been. All the sauces were homemade and they had sauces from the major BBQ regions. South Carolina vinegar, sweet and hot together, hot and sweet separately and a mustard sauce. They had a sauce for every taste. Baked beans were very rich tasting and very balanced. Among the choice of cold drinks was a locally made cola. Much better than Coke in my opinion. A big BBQ chain was down the street and it's ok, you know what your gonna get there. Willie's has something a bit special and it's one of a kind. I like that!

Robert B

Speaking as a local and repeat customer, all I can honestly say is Uncle Willie's is some good eatin'. The prices are somewhat reasonable, the portions are generous, and you'll never leave hungry. Great atmosphere on top of the good food. EDIT: Closed during the winter of 2018, under new ownership with a different business model according to a New Haven Register article.

Janne Toro

Best experience and best choice made! We were on our way home and 1-95 south was bumper to bumper so we were hungry. Sour we decide to try this place and let me tell you the food was amazing the Kansas city rib and the brisket was on point. We will come back all the way from Long Island...

Rocko Magistri

Really enjoyed the chili and the briscut sandwich I had. I will be back when in the area.

Andrea Miller

My son and I love uncle Willie's! We were just back again last night, amazing food, and the employees are so nice. Thanks Uncle Willie's :)

Nice renovations and still the most flavorful, and tender pulled pork sandwiches consistently. Never disappointed.. Little pricey but it's worth it.


The food is very good the service is good I want to give these guys five stars but they serve small portions and they charge an arm and a leg .

Freundliche Bedienung, leckeres Essen, PERFEKT!

Oh hell no!

Smileyne Charleston

I only liked the sweet and hot chili sauce for my wings and garlic parm, I tried Bourbon, honey barbecue not a fan, not bad but wasn't to my liking, they give the sauces to you in separate container. Chicken is fried plain and with just the perfect amount of crispy. Had a brisket sandwich needs more flavor. Juices and sodas are without high corn fructose so that's a plus.

Landon Wilson

Great service, esp for regulars. Great rewards program to keep you coming back. The pulled pork, brisket, burnt ends, and sausage is very good. About as good as you can get up north here. I buy the Wichita Falls Hot BBQ sauce for home!

Andrew Kolsczenko

Food so good make you wama smack yo momma

D Walks

50 Dollars in BBQ was just 50 in stringy shoe leather with disgusting sauce. Save your time and money. We ordered a side of cole slaw and it was soggy browning much. Head to house of bones on 34.

Carolyn Artes

Went there to attend a Union meeting and food was included. I had pork ribs, mac and cheese, corn bread which was nice and moist and my favorite part was the baked beans, they were great!

Lilly Valentin

Tyler Posegate

Very good

Lisa L

Best pulled pork ever! Very nice glad we stopped.

Chris Hammond

Walk in the smell warms you up. Food is a taste of southern heaven. UPDATE just bought a large quantity of BBQ for a party. My jeep smells like a smoke house.

Christof Murnig

Fred Letourneau

Well it was mistake not checking out the buffet before looking at it .The people were nice . salad look wilted chicken was dry . Not must too chose from with the soda . The flus up stairs were as hungry as I was. Not many but the 4 I keep swatting

Carl Henry

Gertrude Lanham

The food tasted good, the proportions more than enough. I have no problem recommending.

Neish Sledge

Think this place is going down the tubes, no fountain soda, and the coleslaw is a vinegar base, not a fan of it. Fries was wonderful and Brisket sandwich was awesome .

Kevin Sanders

If you like barbecue you have to check out Uncle Willie's

Joshua Weightman

Pulled pork amazing, service is great, would rather other options for tv than news and govt issues, also peas and rice was less desirable. Recommend to others!

Tiana Ocasio

Not too sure what happened to the sides... But the meats are still out of this world

Kerry Brosnan

Never been here before... I thought I ordered a beef brisket sandwich, with extra meat... Total is $11. They bring out my tray of food, and it was just pulled pork, cornbread, and slaw. It was really, really good... Figured I made a mistake while ordering... And then they brought out the sandwich! Had to wrap it to go, and that doesn't happen often! I'll be back!

Steve Pinter

Everything is fantastic, but the brisket lacks just a bit.

Will White

Save your monet

Sean Russell

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.

Timothy Steele

Heather Lockwood

Always the best food and service can not rave enough about this place they are the absolute greatest!!!


Why didn't I eat here sooner


Ribs were delish mac and cheese was good and the potato salad was good!! Nice environment!! Owner came out and said hello!! The fifty sauce great spicy kick to it def be back soon !!!! Don't order the coleslaw it's different !!

Sam Detvongsa

The worst I've ever had. The chopped bbq comes with nasty bbq sauce on the side, the mac n cheese is disgusting. Mac n cheese in a box taste better than that cap. Cole slaw looks a veggie salad. The only thing I can say was good in my meal was the mash potatoes. This place deserves 2 thumbs down and I can get food in a whole in the wall that's weigh better and cheaper. Never again I will eat there ever and recommend no one else does. But if u want to try it anyways don't say I never said so lol

Andrew Hastings

Not bad for BBQ in the north.

James Rumph

Kyle Potter

Nice place to pick up delicious ribs!

Amazing BBQ! Burnt ends are amazing, a lot of different sauces, special soda selections, charming environment. Will return again and again.

Jake M.

This cozy BBQ joint is generously getting a 3 rating because at least the Kansas City style ribs were decent, the staff was friendly, and the pig theme décor was cute. As for the rest of the meal experience, however, I was quite disappointed. The chicken was extremely dry and even the slathered BBQ sauce couldn't help. The mac'n cheese tasted like out of a box leftovers, the Calorina baked beans were burnt, and the cornbread tasted like stale cardboard. Most of the fountain drinks had "Out Of Order" signs leaving only lemonade, tea, and some no name flavored sodas. Other reviews made this place seem promising so perhaps we just caught these guys on an off-night.

Vincent Daemen

Very fat and liquid food. Lots of fat and water inside the hamburgers. Onions flat, dried out. Fries were okay, however the onion rings were so buttered up the fat was leaking through the bag onto the table. Personnel was nice, just ease up on the butter usage...

Gus Nascimento


Andrew Ricks

Love it, great bbq, order ahead of your taking out because wait can be long

Andrew Dows

My favorite bbq in the area. Pulled pork is spot on, as are the burnt ends. Sides are very good too. A tad pricey but you get what you pay for in quality. Highly recommend.

Mark Prokop

Best BBQ I've ever had, and I've been to Franklin BBQ, in Austin, TX, supposedly the world's best, and waited in line for 4 hours for lunch. I'd still take Uncle Willie's over them. (And Franklin was incredible, too.) I just love the sweet sauce here. The meat is always perfect, pulled chicken and pork, brisket and ribs. It's delicious. I'm getting hungry writing the review.

Jim McNulty

Lillian Mix

Colleen O'Connor

I love the pulled pork with the 50/50 sauce

Ivan Vasquez

Great BBQ!!Friendly Staff!! I go back everytime I can! "Stubborn" soda just makes it that much better!

Don Shev

Missing items from order. Found when i got home. My fault for not checking. Beef ribs just horrible.

Cody Remy

Krazy Abizle

Great Southern BBQ Food! Need to try out!

Stephanie Walz

Awesome bbq

Jim Kennedy

The food was good, but really lacked selection and they were mysteriously out of items that shouldn't be.
