    Baby Back Ribs, Wings, Mac and Cheese, sweet potatoes, side salad and fries with cheese are the office favorites

    Delicious food without the ridiculous wait of the original Slow's restaurant. There are a few places to sit, but come prepared to grab your food and go since it's not really built for in-house dining.

    Pulled pork bbq, waffles fries, and MACARONI AND CHEESE! You'll be scraping every last bite out of the pan. 😋🍴

    Service is not up to par, was rushed out the store pretty much and I received the wrong sides. Don't get the pulled pork, it's bad. There are better barbecue joints out there

    Incredible barbecue. Lives up to its hype 😃. The baby back ribs and the brisket were "off the charts".

    St. Louis Style is how I like my ribs.
  • Misterarthur M.
    The greatest. Among other things, when you call in your order, they wait until you get there to make the fries, so they're nice and crispy

    There's a reason why it's called Slo to-go....be prepared to wait :(

    Chicken wings were awesome. Mustard sauce and spicy are my favorites. The blackeyed peas could use some dill: they don't hold a candle to baker's. Channel 4 van was parked there too.

    Give them an extra 15-20 minutes for online orders. Almost always takes longer than the website says.

    I think food here is better than the restaurant. You always get your food hot and not a long wait either. Also, seating available. Win, win, win!

    The beef chili was horrible. It was unusually greasy and tasted like dog food. Very disappointing. The waffle fries and cheese was excellent though.
