    The brisket is delicious!! Goes well with either (or all) mac and cheese, waffle fries, coleslaw, and/or cornbread.

    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

    La Trece Guy · December 7, 2015
  • Trina J.

    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...😕👎🏾

    The best spot to eat in Detroit. Epic BBQ

    Brisket was good. Mac n Cheese terrible!!! Burger had no seasoning

    Pam Gill · October 10, 2015
  • Pablo K.

    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.

    Why wait? Not on @nowaitapp yet like BWW?

    Great sausage and Mac and cheese. The smoked turkey is very dry, though.

    I've been here a couple times and all their barbecue is amazing. I also recommend getting The Reason if you're looking for a great pulled pork sandwich

    Alexandria Bonner · August 14, 2015
  • Hugo E.

    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.

    Pulled pork with mac and cheese & baked beans was delicious. Portion size was larger than expected.

    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

    Hugo Echávarri · May 11, 2015

    I've been 3 times to this place when I visited Detroit. They have a huge selection of draft beers! I would recommend St Louis Spareribs. Sandwiches were also good.

    Solid BBQ served quick. For individual portions, try the sandwiches. Great selection of sauces too, including the apple BBQ sauce.

    I like that slows cares just as much about their beer and drinks as they care about their excellent food.

    Fugetaboutit! It's always busy, don't be intimidated by the crowd or wait. They are fast and service is excellent. Seating at the bar is first come first serve and it's where I always sit. Mac n chees

    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.
