  • "Mac n cheese, Wings, Yardbird sammich!" -- Adam Richman, Host of Man v Food Nation
  • Good food, good people and a great city: Slow's has it all, and then some. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Slow's Bar BQ is something everyone should try. They even have good choices for vegetarians. It's very crowded so don't go there if you have other plans that night like a movie.
  • Can't find the door? It's that huge wooden thing that looks more like a wall than a door :-)
  • Order "The Reason" and enjoy.
  • Named one of America's Best BBQ by Budget Travel. There is no wrong choice here. "The Big Three" is the best way to get a mix of what makes Slow's so awesome. Don't forget a side of their Mac-n-Chees
  • If you don't wanna wait an hour+, go on a weekday between 2-5p!
  • The brisquet is great, very tender.
  • On a scale of 1 to 10... This is a can't-wait-to-eat-here/10.
  • Must have their BBQ pork sandwiches
  • One of Detroit's most popular restaurants, serving excellent BBQ ribs and pork. Be ready to wait 2+ hours for a table or call Slows-To-Go in Midtown (877-569-7246).
  • The brisket and mac 'n cheese are our favorites! Parking gets tough during peak hours, but it's worth the wait.
  • Triple threat!!!!
  • Best BBQ in Detroit, hands down. Small place can get pretty crowded, be prepared for a wait!
  • The brisket and the mac and cheese. You can go no wrong. Come early.
  • Being from the South, this place is a little too slick for my taste. It's where white people go to feel safe and have overpriced BBQ. To be fair, the food is pretty swell, and generously portioned.
  • With places like this, Detroit's gonna be fine
  • 'The reason' with Mac and cheese is to die for! The wait and service not.
  • Go to Slows. Sample a local brew on tap, have some macaroni and cheese, sit on the patio,and enjoy your authentic Detroit dining experience.
  • Some of the best BBQ in Detroit. Great team, and food. Just make sure to get there early, it gets a little crowded. Suggested: The Yardbird with a little NC Sauce
