    Below average.....there are far better B B Q places than this. It was made for the people that come to Detroit from events and wanted what they consider great BBQ but it's awful

    I like them but I totally totally totally hate their string beans! I asked the very friendly waitress why they taste so weird... She said because it's sautéed in a mustard sauce...😕👎🏾

    Delicious sandwiches and beer. The baked beans are spicy and probably not what you're used to. We had the longhorn and the reason, both of which were delicious. Beer list is exemplary.

    If you go by yourself or with a date avoid waiting for a table just by going straight to the bar, it's first in, first served.

    Baby back ribs, pulled pork, Mac and cheese and waffle fries. Mix the NC and apple sauce with your ribs. Best BBQ in Detroit! Be ready to wait about an hour to get a table, but it's worth it

    Ho-ly cow (or maybe pig?). This place lived up to the hype in my book. The Triple Threat Pork sandwich was AMAZING. I can't wait to return to Detroit just so I can come back for more Slows.

    When you go to Slows, you gotta be strategic. I went as a group of 3 and shared the pulled pork, brisket, and ribs with 6 sides. It was brilliant and everything was delicious. Get cornbread & brisket.

    The legends are true. This place backs its massive reputation. Mac & cheese is a must. Definitely go splitsies on the platter meat orders. There is more than enough to share.
