Uncle Jack's Meat House

All Carnivores Here

From the minute you arrive in the parking lot, the appetizing aroma of Uncle Jack's Meat House hits you.

We all know that there are a lot of great restaurants in Gwinnett County. But, one of our newest is certainly a stand out.

Uncle Jack's Meat House, located on Sugarloaf Parkway just near the Infinite Energy Center, brings an in-town ambiance OTP. When you approach the building, you're welcomed by an inviting patio, complete with comfy, plush chairs, as well as a host of friendly staff.

The decor of Uncle Jack's is definitely unique—if there was a word more unique than unique, we would use it here. The bar is adorned with vintage-style light bulbs and meat hooks... Yes, meat hooks. When you visit the "lavatorium," you feel like you're heading into a meat locker. The walls are covered in butcher-themed (is that a thing?) art. Pay close attention, or you may miss some of these design intricacies, like the retro lighted letters on the ceiling outside.

Note, we have not even gotten to the food yet...

Where to start...? You'll find a range of one-of-a-kind "munchies" on the Uncle Jack's menu, from Main Lobster and Avacado Mint Tacos to Charred Spanish Octopus. They also offer cured meats and local cheeses, which come with pickled vegetables and crusty grilled bread.

As far as the main course, they're serving up salads, U.S.D.A prime chops and steaks, "In Between Bread" and "From The Line" offerings. We tried the "Ooey Gooey Mooey Burger," and O.M.G. This burger is topped with a secret sauce, onion jam, maple pepper bacon and buttermilk blue cheese fondue. They covered a lot of adjectives in this guy's name, but they forgot a few—mouth-watering, delectable, the-best-burger-that-will-ever-grace-your-taste-buds. OK, that'd be pretty long for a burger name. Either way, we'd highly recommend it.

What we're really trying to say is, we're glad owner Willie Degel decided to open Uncle Jack's in Gwinnett. Do yourself a favor, and go visit this exquisite establishment.
