Uncle Bub’s Hickory Smoked BBQ Restaurant & Catering was born in 1997 in Westmont, Illinois. While fulfilling a lifelong family dream, the restaurant and catering business quickly satisfied a culinary void in the western suburbs of Chicago: Authentic, Pit-Smoked Barbeque.

Unlike the franchise-driven competition, Uncle Bub’s remains family owned and operated, carefully attending to every detail through its steady growth process. 

True barbeque is a labor of love and it begins with the meat. Uncle Bub’s always selects premium cuts of pork, beef, ribs and chicken. First we dry rub our meats with our secret blend of spices, then we place the meat into our hardwood smoker to receive hours of slow-smoked flavor. BBQ pitmasters have always agreed on one thing – you can’t rush the final product. When it’s ready, Uncle Bub’s slathers it with our award-winning sauce and delivers it fresh to you.

BBQ is a commitment, and the staff at Uncle Bub’s works tirelessly to ensure each and every customer’s satisfaction; from the kitchen, to the wait staff, to the catering crew that delivers to you; each share in this common goal. This dedication, consistency of high quality and attention to detail are Uncle Bub’s promise and unwavering commitment to you – the customer.
