Slows Bar-B-Que Reviews
Beef Brisket and waffle fries were really good. Didn't care much for the Mac n cheese. Lots of beer options! Reasonably priced. Definitely want to come back.
by Alex J.
If its on tap, get a Hopslam.
by Alex V.
Just eat everything. Side: green beans
by Jared C.
How can a bbq joint not have ice tea??? Fail
by Clay I.
One of the best restaurants in Detroit. 2 entrees feed 3 people - pulled pork and brisket should be on your list. Same with mac n cheese and cornbread. Killer local draft selection too.
by Varun S.

Best waffle fries. Ever!

Sweet potato mash x Mac n cheese x Brisket. All day.

Call ahead for reservations especially during the summer and during game days.
by Anthony C.
Happy hour is at the newer side from 4-6pm on weekdays (1 dollar off drinks)
by Anthony C.
Try the okra fritters. They come with an amazing "sassy" sauce that will make you sweat but long for more!
by Sarah R.
I'm from Alabama and can confirm the Alabama Catfish is legit! Cornbread is real authentic too :)
by Jenifer K.
Awesome BBQ, what more can you ask for. Mac-n-Cheese and Pork Ribs - yummy, yummy, yummy :-).
by Brian B.
30 minute wait minimum to get a seat for lunch! YUCK!!!
by Bryce R.
Finest brisket I've eaten and amazing service.
The Maryann! The best brisket bbq I've ever had hands down!
by Robin F.
Pulled pork is the best!
by Billy K.
Yardbird sandwich, Mac n Cheese, microbrew on tap. Take your time, enjoy your evening. It's worth it.
by Andrew C.
Eggs & Kegs was poorly organized. Started at 1:00 and an hour later the food was not ready. No propane for the deep fryer, couldn't find an outlet for the waffle maker, very little seating.
by Monkey R.
Amazing! Triple Threat and Charles salad are sure to please!
by Bethany S.
Baby back ribs are awesome!
by L L.
Good food, good people and a great city: Slow's has it all, and then some. [Eater 38 Member]
Always good food and the wait is usually always reasonable. I like the smoked wings and waffle fries w/cheddar.
by Rosha T.
Pulled pork BBQ and mac & cheese
by Edwin G
Must order the Mac and chz, but be careful.... It's a lot like crack!! Lol
by Tiffany Ryan B.
Pulled pork taste like heaven..
by Huberto A.
Don't order the gumbo or jambalaya...DISGUSTING!
by Eunice M.
There's a reason everyone leaves with boxes. One entree (including two giant sides) is likely more than enough for two.
The yard bird and mac & cheese!!!!
by Brea P.
The Longhorn, Mac-n-cheese, cornbread
by Michael B.
Mac n cheese and brisket is good, wings are better. Not good enough to turn on the Ambassador Bridge to get some. I'm just sayin'...
by Adriana B.
The meat is delicious here! Best sandwiches in the Great Lakes area! Get brisket and their Mac N Cheese and you will be satisfied
by Zachary D.
The Genius is just that. Genius. Vegetarians can enjoy BBQ too!
by Kristen H.
Great Place try the Wing & Jerky
by Lewis E.
If this is your first time here, I bet you had absolutely no idea where the front door was.

They won't seat you till your whole party is here! Which is okay, but be prepared!
by Whitney H.
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.
by Lauren S.
Get the large house salad and add meat for $4, total is $8.95 and its so much delicious food!
by Heather E.
Can't get. A table if ur life depended on. It
by Julie G.
The pulled pork sandwich (called "The Reason" here) has big chunks of tender meat. I couldn't find one sauce that I really loved, so be sure to test them all before sandwich use.
by Jake S.
Canadians: it's worth driving to the D for this. Pack some to go for the road.
The wait for this place is astronomical.
by Rachel K.

Real good food ! But NOTHING is worth a 2 1/2 hour wait
by Steven O.
Be easy on the bathroom faucet. It splashes.
by Manny K.
Try "The Reason" Sandwich!
Hour wait at 5:30 on Sunday, no reservations <6 people, quite loud, youngish crowd, beautiful bathrooms. Mac n' cheese, Special Purpose, Rounder, and ribs recommended.
Disappointment to hear they only have the Orange Pop Sauce seasonally:( but to-go location apparently might have some!
by Brad S.
Been here quite a few times. Today may be my last visit. Ribs were dry and not great. Brisket was a bit bland. Sides were awesome as usual. Very disappointed today.
by Ken C.
You MUST get the sweet potato mash!!
by Erin M.
Sit down and enjoy the weather on the outdoor patio dining area!
by The Twisted Onion

by Ben B.
Crazy big portions....bring your stretchy britches
by Clint G.
haha! awesome lunch
by Edwin G
It's ok. Not southern bbq. But ok. I do admit I enjoyed the coleslaw. It's not the typical Yankee sweet concoction they call coleslaw.
by Brenda L.
Long wait in line? Grab that buzzer thingy and have a coffee @ Astro or a drink @ Sugarhouse. That thing reaches all the way down the block. Just be sure to book it once it's your turn or you lose it.
by Jay K.
Can't find the door? It's that huge wooden thing that looks more like a wall than a door :-)
by JR D.

Its fun sitting by the window and watching the people walk back and forth looking for the door. Ha ha ha
by Andrew L.
Great beers on tap.
by Frank L.
You can't go wrong with the brisket. The mac and cheese and cornbread are awesome. Get the You Choose - it's big enough for two... Sadly no leftovers though.
