Renovated Uncle Tom's BBQ in Coral Gables Keeps Original Flavor (Photos)

Uncle Tom's BBQ has been a Miami staple for over 60 years. After a fire forced the Tamiami Trail restaurant to close last year, the operation is back and ready for a resurgence. A location in Pinecrest is scheduled to open, as well as future locations in West Kendall, Doral/Miami Lakes, and Fort Lauderdale.

The owners have preserved the integrity of the original structure, while also implementing necessary upgrades and changes to both the interior and exterior deck. After the fire, the building got a complete overhaul that included a new electrical system and renovated bathrooms.
