Finally, some good news about restaurants opening up instead of closing down! Willie Degel is a serial entrepreneur, motivational speaker, founder & CEO of Uncle Jack’s Meat House and Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse restaurants, and host of Restaurant Stakeout on The Food Network.
Uncle Jack’s Meat House, an American Bar & Grille currently has a Georgia location in Duluth, with one opening this fall in Peachtree Corners, and another newly planned location in the former Big Ketch Restaurant on Canton Street in Roswell. He also has an Uncle Jack location in Astoria, New York as well as two New York locations for Uncle Jack’s Steakhouses. He is also planning to expand Uncle Jack’s Meat House concept to Florida, North Carolina, and Las Vegas soon.
The Roswell location will have a large outside patio and bar. The website is still being updated but we were informed that,
Uncle Jack’s on Canton Street in Historic Roswell, Georgia features the American fare that you grew up to love and crave with a modern twist. Interior décor highlights a walk down memory lane with black and white photos of Canton Street, antique automobiles and signature dishes from all three of the Uncle Jack’s brands. A pop of our trademark red splashes in our contemporary, sleek bar and lounge area. Dine Al fresco with the best view in Roswell from our covered patios and events on the “great lawn”

Here are some internal Roswell renderings featured on their website. You can also follow them on Instagram for the Roswell updates.
The Peachtree Corners locations is almost ready to open!
The neighborhood grill gets Uncle Jack’s food and decor treatment, and the result is something completely new upscale grill food from appetizers to sandwiches, salads, and steaks. Uncle Jack’s has the look and feel of a 1900s building in New York’s Meatpacking District, complete with aged cement, raw vintage steel, subway title, meat hooks, custom wallpaper featuring archival butcher photos, and flying pigs and steer heads mounted on the walls. The tufted and red vinyl seating, marble bar tops with old school bar styling mixed in and outdoor fire pit lounge areas provide a pop of sophistication while also reinforcing the vintage theme.
In addition to the Uncle Jack’s name, he is also building a Jack’s Tavern in Lawrenceville at 30S Clayton Suite 1000. The Tavern is as a farm-to-table neighborhood grill and pub, with a scratch-made, chef-driven kitchen. There will be diverse cuisines, including Italian, Asian, Latin/Mexican-infused, South American, and classic American dishes. It will be a fast-grab, affordable eatery that showcases items from all of his brands like signature burgers, chicken sandwiches, disco fries, steak sandwiches, brisket, and more.
Maybe more of Degel’s restuarant concepts will come our way as he said to us:
We love Georgia!
