    55555 by Teresa W.

  • Ross R.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.

    55555 by Ross R.

  • Greg T.Great BBQ. The mac & cheese is to die for.

    55555 by Greg T.

  • Reuben S.Dont eat the day of visiting. You will need the room and the sauces on the side are the icing on the rib!

    55555 by Reuben S.

    55555 by Julie G.

  • La Trece SBelow 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

    33333 by La Trece S

  • 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.

    55555 by Pablo K.

    55555 by Hugo D

  • David DYou really can't go wrong here. It's all good!

    55555 by David D

  • Andrew Z.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.

    55555 by Andrew Z.

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

    55555 by Jesse B.

  • Eliza F.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.

    55555 by Eliza F.

  • Swen G.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.

    33333 by Whitney H.

  • Lauren S.The draft list here is awesome! I've tried the pulled pork and the 1/2 chicken and both were amazing! The best sides have to be the mac n cheese and the mashed sweet potatoes.

    55555 by Chris L.

  • Rebecca C.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.
