With husband-and-wife team Thurmond and Linda Brokenbrough behind the delicious soul food at Uncle Thurm’s Finger-Lickin' Ribs and Chicken, it’s no wonder the restaurant has developed a strong, loyal following of regular customers. They each bring extensive training and experience in the culinary world, but it is the restaurant’s friendly, welcoming atmosphere that truly sets it apart from other establishments.

“I make sure I get out and bug everyone who comes in here,” Thurmond laughed.

As a former cook in the military, he knows what it takes to feed large quantities of hungry mouths. And with Linda’s talent with pastries and desserts, Uncle Thurm’s offers a little something for everyone.

And this Thanksgiving, Uncle Thurm’s is more than ready to help customers present a holiday dinner to be remembered for years to come. Customers can bring in their own turkey (20 pounds or less) and Uncle Thurm himself will prepare it to perfection using his own classic flavor profile. A full roster of sides is available, served in portions to serve 10 people: candied yams, collard/mustard greens, green beans, macaroni and cheese, savory bread dressing, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, dinner rolls (each side is $20 apiece), and sweet potato pie for $10. The turkey will cost $20 to prepare, and all orders must be placed by Monday, Nov. 25.

“I make the best giblet gravy around,” Thurmond said. “It’s all about cooking with tender, loving care and that’s exactly what we do here.”

Ordering Thanksgiving dinner from Uncle Thurm’s would not only guarantee a delicious, memorable meal, but it will also take some stress out of the day and allow families to spend quality time together. “Thanksgiving is a holiday for people to spend time together, and ordering from us helps keep everyone out of the kitchen,” he said.

Uncle Thurm’s is located at 3709 S. ‘G’ St. For more information or to place a Thanksgiving order, please call (253) 475-1881.
