    Nothing will slow you down eating the brisket here! Especially in a sandwich. Try EVERY BBQ sauce and drink a beer for me, would ya 😊🍺

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good Slow's was. Living in the south I cook and eat a lot of barbecue. We had the pulled pork sandwich. Good smoke and seasoning. Be prepared to wait!

    Word of mouth has made Brian Perrone’s baked mac legendary. And even though it’s bursting with flavor, it’s made with only one type of cheese: cheddar. Read more

    Best brisket I have had outside of Texas. Blackened catfish is great, so is the jambalaya, though they both lacked salt. I could eat the corn bread every day.

    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.
