Uncle Mike's proudly upholds the methods and traditions of one of the world's most famous and popular styles of BBQ: Kansas City-style BBQ.
Uncle Mike's BBQ is steeped in the American tradition of slow-smoking meat at a low temperature, using a combination of spice, fire and smoke to coax the flavour and tenderness from select cuts of meat. We complement our authentic BBQ fare with assorted grill items and fresh, house-made sides, salads and desserts.
Check out our new location, Uncle Mike's Express, in the Capital Market, 151 Willis St. in the Wellington CBD!

Sunday Star Times, “Everything we ate was delicious, the service was brilliant and we’d happily return.”
David Burton, Dominion Post, “As to the heroes of our dishes, both were excellent. Despite the lengthy cooking the meat of both, the pork and the duck was beautifully succulent, tasting distinctly but not overbearingly smoky, pre-rubbed with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and cumin and very nicely glazed with house-made BBQ sauce.”
Christchurch Press, “Our friendly English waitress warned us the buffalo-style chicken wings were spicy but we stuck to our decision. More-ish is the best description of this dish, which we devoured, leaving just a pile of bones behind. A cheese-ranch-style sauce cooled things down a bit, while beers seemed to disappear as soon as they hit the table.”
