“Generous portions of pinoy breakfast!!! ”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Great tasting authentic filipino breakfast dishes

Huge portions

Lots of side dishes - compliments of the owner

Service is friendly and efficient

Place is always packed with diners so why not give it a little facelift that it desperately needs :)

“Excellent as Advertised”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Saw it on "Chicago's Best" and had to try the skirt steak and eggs. I was not disappointed. The steak was cooked as perfect medium rare, as were the eggs over easy. Huge steak portion with almost no waste was excellent. Hash browns and toast were included, as were a few sprigs of cilantro. Service was excellent too. Highly recommended.

“Yummy Pinoy Food”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

I've been to Uncle Mike's about three times because my wife who is Filipino introduced me to it. The have delicious traditional Filipino breakfast as well as casual American breakfast. My favorite by far is the marinated skirt steak. I don't know what they marinate it in, but it's DELISH! It's quite tender and flavorful without being over seasoned. The service is friendly and warm. It is not a big restaurant and rather narrow. The decor is simple, but nice and clean. The ambience is welcoming and happy.

“Good Portions & Super Duper Delicious”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

I came here for brunch with my roommate. People have been ranting about how fulfilling the food is and how great it is. First off, the restaurant is totally a diner setting. They were packed! When we arrived, people were waiting to be seated...you sign up at the front desk...we were seated within 25 mins.... Their menu of Filippino breakfast was fricking amazing.....I had the milkfish & spam with over easy egg over rice. Btw, Asians love spam/eggs/rice in the morning....I know weird right..hahahaha....The portions was huge especially if each plate is about $15...The amount served the price....Excellent!
