The food here is really good. The smothered pork chops and home fries for breakfast is sooooo good and they give you hearty portions. Not sure why they don't put salt in their grits, but whatevs. Have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Worth it.

When this restaurant first opened up the food here was so good after being open for a while the food is not as good and you really don't get what you are hoping/craving.

I have been a patron of unkl moe's restaurant since the beginning. As a matter of fact, I used to work at Xerox where 2 of my co-workers worked at this establishment, one was a cook. I recently visited this restaurant and was quite disappointed in the reception received, I stood at the counter for several minutes without acknowledgement from... More

I was fortunate to go to this restaurant about four years ago and I've been coming back ever since. Their food is great and plentiful and I always bring back at least six bottles of the Unkl Moe's barbeque sauce. I highly recommend breakfast, lunch and dinner at this restaurant.

Soooo conflicted about how to review this place food great, service was great until the bill. The bill is my only issue with this place and Im still scratching my head trying to figure out what happened. I have settled on one thing in my mind which is most disturbing but I still dont know. As such I would give... More

The servers are friendly and the food is incredible! While the BBQ is good, I am a fan of breakfast. I love their cheesy grits, Southern sausage, biscuits, and salmon patties.

My wife and I stayed overnight in Rochester and we're looking for a place to have breakfast. I looked online and discovered Unkl Moe's. And am I glad we did. My wife had the fried catfish and grits with hash browns and I had eggs and grits with beef sausage and toast. If you want a restaurant where the staff... More

While visiting Rochester, my husband did a search of where to eat breakfast and he came across Unkl Mo's and I must say I'm glad he did. The server was excellent, proffessional and accomodating. We ordered and our food came out with a minimal wait. It was so good that we decided to order dinner to go. We also met... More

Excellent ribs and sauce! But a bit pricey for ribs and menu. Personable staff. Also its in desperate need of an update.
