Uncle Thurms Soul Food
Uncle Thurms Soul Food serves up Southern-style barbecue and Cajun eats that some regulars say will give you life. Owned and operated by Uncle Thurm himself, Thurmond Brokenbrough, the no-frills establishment got its start in the back room at Lincoln Bowl Lanes before moving to a new location in Tacoma’s Lincoln District in 2006. Among other finger-licking dishes, Uncle Thurms offers a family-style Soul Food Medley that comes with BBQ ribs, chicken, cajun catfish, mac & cheese, red beans & rice, Southern-style greens, candied yams, and cornbread. Other standouts include the savory pork chop and peach cobbler.
Pro-tip: Try the pepper sauce on the fish!
