Yakitori at Uncle
It’s always grilling season at Uncle’s Speer location, where chef-owner Tommy Lee and sous chef Sean May offer a tightly curated menu of yakitori (Japanese-style skewered chicken, pictured above). Choose from nearly a dozen poultry preparations—for which May butchers up to 20 whole birds per week—including meatballs with cured egg yolk, dirty-rice-stuffed wings, and green-miso-cloaked breast. The lineup is available for dinner Monday through Thursday, making it a finger-licking cure to your weeknight blues. Starting at $4 per stick
