Casual bar with separate family restaurant seating. Great food--burgers, steak, catfish, chicken, salads, appetizers, pasta, etc. Fair prices and our server was awesome!

Nothing fancy but we always get good food and good service! We love the pizza, steaks, sandwiches, and fried chicken (only served on certain days). Uncle Ronnie's is our favorite place in Burlington for a casual lunch or dinner with friends.

I think their food is excellent. The surroundings are that of a typical Iowa "Bar & Grill". Very casual. Everything I have had has been good and they are always busy. Good service, however, so the wait isn't too long. A nice/fun place to head...More

This is the quintessential Dinner, Drive-In or Dive. It's in a pol building (a metal building) built just for the restaurant. Since moving to town, I've eaten here a minimum of 50 times, and have always had a meal that is substantial, and rated a range of 8-10 out of 10; without exception. The proprietor, Uncle Ronnie himself, works the floor as a host like an old school eatery in downtown New York. This is a top 3 joint in SE Iowa.
