Willie Degel, Food Network Star and Owner of the Uncle Jack’s restaurant chain is inviting patrons to visit his Uncle Jack’s Meat House in Duluth, Georgia.
“We have Valentine’s Day coming, so in New York I’m famous for what I created, which was called Valentine’s Day Week,” said Willie Degel. “Valentine’s Week mean the entire week is runs and treats every guest to their Valentine’s Day experience. I remember going out Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend and the pressure and stress I felt to try and find a restaurant and get the reservation, get things in time, get the roses, get this and that. So we want a prefix menu that’s custom designed by the chef and the local management based on people’s eating habits.”
Willie Degel has arranged it so people who go to Uncle Jack’s Meat House during this week can choose their experience. They have the option of ordering from the regular, full menu or can choose a prefix from their Valentine’s Day menu.
The Menu will include the following:

We are also excited to announce that Uncle Jack’s Meat House will begin construction on its newest location in Peachtree Corners! The building is set to have a 4,000 square foot interior meat house with a 2,000 square foot wraparound patio. The surrounding area will have shops, fitness centers and a two-acre amphitheater park. People will have the opportunity to enjoy going on strolls and experience the eating/drinking environment.
“My building should start breaking ground by the end of March,” said Mr. Degel. “We’re going to have a takeout window that’s going to be designed like a mini food truck. And everyday there’s going to be a little board outside that the chef is gonna make five items that are going to be more affordable, you can just walk up and order directly from the kitchen staff.”
He has also announced that the building is set to have the appearance of an old-style meat factory warehouse with a private party room with an attached room called the “Meat Locker”. The space will be able to sit up to 20 people and invite them to experience an astounding visual experience prior to their delicious meal.
“I’m going to build a refrigerated walk-in box private party room. I’m going to have these heavy lining butcher coats for you. The meat wall is going to have all the different dried meats in it and glass, so you will see the chef cutting and butchering,” states Mr. Degel.
