I've been officially in Tyler for 3 days now and as I continue to learn more and more about our area, one of the things I've been craving is some good old fashioned seafood and as I was driving around the city, I saw Uncle Jacks Kitchen and decided to stop through.
With a huge menu of items including catfish, shrimp, wings and more, Uncle Jacks Kitchen definitely has something for you! I was kind of intimidated by so much to choose from so I asked the young lady working the register for her suggestion.
She told me that if I would like to try some of their most popular items in one plate, she suggested the 2 Catfish, 2 Wings and 2 Shrimp plate which came with seasoned fries so that's what I got and it didn't disappoint.
The catfish portions alone where HUGE and the shrimp was dope as well but the wings I ordered were covered in Uncle Jacks exclusive "Sleezy Sauce" which was sweet yet spicy but all around delicious as I destroyed my wings before I got to anything else. The even threw in some "Sleezy Eggs" which were deviled eggs drenched in Sleezy Sauce.
I even got a sample of their delicious gumbo and even though I'm not a fan of okra in my gumbo, that sample I was given was devoured as well.
So overall, everything was great, the staff were super nice and great people and I recommend you check them out if you haven't yet. They are located at 721 N. Palace Avenue in Tyler and you can check them out on Facebook.
