Slows BBQ in Detroit, Michigan

Slows BBQ is a renowned restaurant located in the heart of Corktown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Detroit, Michigan. Known for its delicious barbeque dishes and rustic ambiance, Slows BBQ is definitely worth a visit.

Upon entering, the decor captures your attention. From the bar top made of old bowling alley lanes to the charming red brick walls, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff is friendly and attentive, making sure that all guests feel welcome from the moment they walk in.

But of course, the real focus of Slows BBQ is the food. The smoked brisket, pulled pork, and ribs are all slow-cooked to perfection, covered in a sweet, sticky sauce that is finger-licking good. Pair it with one of their classic sides, such as their mac and cheese or coleslaw, and you have yourself a feast fit for a king.

One standout dish is their Yardbird sandwich, which features slow-roasted chicken layered with applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and roasted garlic mayo. It’s messy, it’s indulgent, and it’s absolutely delicious.

To wash it all down, the restaurant offers a great selection of beers and cocktails. The “Slows Old Fashioned” made with maple syrup is a must-try.

Overall, Slows BBQ is a must-visit destination for anyone craving delicious barbeque in Detroit. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top-notch, making it a perfect spot for family and friends to gather and enjoy a memorable meal.
