A Bite of the Boro: Uncle Shug’s Bar-B-Q Place

Even on your first visit, there is something familiar about Uncle Shug’s Bar-B-Q Place. Perhaps it’s the warm southern welcome you receive when you open the front door. It might be the aroma of wonderful smoky meat that immediately conjures images of juicy pulled pork and crispy skin. Or maybe it’s Stacy Underwood himself, the man behind the Uncle Shug’s restaurants in Statesboro and Brooklet, guaranteeing you’re getting some of the best southern cooking around.
Stacy Underwood and Staff
Uncle Shug’s BBQ Place, previously Uncle Shug’s on Main, opened on July 28th to eager Statesboro diners. Their menu has a range of BBQ staples, including brisket, ribs, chicken, and pulled pork. Each entrée has the choice of being “small” or “large”, which determines whether you have one or two sides. Orders are placed at the front and you are given a placard for your table.
A rustic, open dining room for enjoying your BBQ! Al fresco dining is also available.
Food is quickly delivered to you, hot and ready to enjoy. The ribs are flavorful enough to be eaten on their own, but don’t miss out on trying Uncle Shug’s BBQ sauces, which will be waiting at your table. The brisket, a cut that can be hard to cook, was tender and rich. Surprisingly, one of the things people are raving about most are the French fries. Cut fresh daily, these crispy, shoestring fries are tossed in Shug’s Seasoning as soon as they come out of the fryer. The Seasoning is a top-secret family recipe that is made in private by Mr. Underwood himself- no employees allowed!
Ribs, fries, toast, and collard greens- what’s not to love?
Freshly made hamburger patties, Georgia shrimp, and BBQ nachos are just a few of the other menu items that Uncle Shug’s Bar-B-Q Place has to offer. Keep an eye on this restaurant, as new menu items will likely be added soon!
Uncle Shug’s Bar-B-Q Place proudly serves Georgia shrimp that are never frozen.
Banquet space is available and, as always, Uncle Shug’s is offering catering. Come in and dine Tuesday through Saturday from 11am-9pm. For more information, contact them at 912-842-7484.
