In case the name didn't give it away, Uncle Joe's specializes in Jamaican-style jerk dishes and other Caribbean fare. The favorite among neighborhood regulars is the jerk chicken dinner: A half chicken served with plantains, red beans and rice, and steamed cabbage or salad. If jerk isn't your thing, Uncle Joe's also offers curried and stewed meats and seafood and a variety of sides such as macaroni and cheese, candied yams and callaloo. Order at the counter, then pull up a seat in the bright dining room where reggae music plays over the sound system as cooks prepare meals in an open kitchen.
