Uncle Jack's Steakhouse in Bayside 'on the up-and-up' after Health Department shutdown

The grill is back on at Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse in Bayside on Friday, two days after the Health Department closed it down for a series of code violations.


According to the DOH, on March 5, the agency closed the Bayside location after an inspection garnered 61 points against Uncle Jack’s including 5 critical sanitary violations such as food not cooled by approved methods; raw and cooked food cross-contaminated or not discarded properly; evidence of mice or live mice; tobacco use or drinking from an open container in areas where food is prepared or stored; as well as possible food contamination during storage.

Upon reopening on March 7, Uncle Jack’s displayed a “Grade Pending” certificate from the Health Department in its front window.

Uncle Jack’s has been a staple in Bayside for years serving up high-dollar steaks and the staffer said they had complied with the DOH in their requirements. The chain is owned by Willie Degel, who gained fame for his reality show “Restaurant Stakeout,” which aired for five seasons on the Food Network and exposed service problems through hidden cameras at eateries across the U.S.

1. Gawd I hated restaurant stakeout. It was like a reality Jerry Springer Show only less honest.
