Legendary | Worth driving from anywhere
Review by: Roadfood Team
Slows BBQ is a full-menu barbecue parlor in the heart of Detroit, featuring all manner of outrageous sandwiches, including the Triple Threat: Applewood smoked bacon, pulled pork, and ham stacked high and mighty.
They use Niman Ranch products, as well as other local farmers, and have an excellent scene inside. Bar service or tables; open for lunch and dinner and they stay open late.
What should I eat at Slows BBQ?
Food is all served a la carte; you order sides along with your sandwich. You’ve got a choice of Texas toast or a Kaiser roll (I always go with the toast). Sandwiches come out dry, but there are at least five different BBQ sauces on each table for you to experiment with. The Texas toast is deliciously buttery; sandwiches are piled high. The reason is pork butt and coleslaw topped with dill pickles: absolutely delicious, with a smoky flavor.
It is a good idea to goo for lunch because it’s less busy. Most evenings Slows BBQ is packed to the gills, with a wait of an hour or more. Sometimes you can get lucky and squeeze in at the bar, but for the most part, it’s a wait. They do take reservations for groups six or larger, for what it’s worth. They also do takeout.
This is really delicious BBQ, well worth the trip.
