We very much enjoyed our dinner at an outside table. The fried dill chips with dipping sauce and sweet potato fries were excellent starters. The set of 5 sliders gave an opportunity to taste a veggie patty and several BBQ meats. All were delicious! They make an excellent old-fashioned too.

Ok... Totally did not expect this place to be one of the best BBQ's ever! 👍 We are from Georgia and have some awesome places... All their meats are tender and sauces spectacular. Service was perfect and so... 5 stars, no hesitation. Enjoy!

Always great food and service. Have never had anything we didn't like. When we have people from out of town we take them here. One of our favorite spots in Ann Arbor.

A group of us were exploring downtown Ann Arbor and thought we"d give the Blue Tractor a try. We had no reservations and didn't want to wait but the manager talked us into staying. I'm glad he did. The ribs were fall off the bone and the sauce was out of this world. Their craft beer selection was great as... More

It was okay nothing i would write home about. However most of the items look and taste much better then the picture they offer. I had ribs that had less meat then average ribs that were tasteless smoothered in a sickly sweet sauce and greasy. The sauce tasted bottled, like Kraft barbeque sauce

Almost everything on the menu will please you, and satisfy your hunger well. Atmosphere is nice and there are a good number of booths to sit in. Solid food, solid beer selection. Nothing is spectacular or out-of-the box. Almost all of their "special ketchups/sauces" leave a lot to be desired. However, in Ann Arbor where you are constantly hit-over-the-head with... More

Six of us dined at the BT and we loved it. My sliced brisket sandwich on a soft hoagie roll was one of the better briskets I have ever had. Just the right balance of flesh to fat. They had four different BBQ sauces. The Pork Belly appetizer was melt- in- your- mouth and served on a bed of grits.... More

The pulled pork was good and they have 4 different sauces to choose from. Their beer they make is also good. The atmosphere is kind of average. I went here for lunch and would probably go back.

I used to love this place! I really enjoyed their buffalo burger, until they took it off the menu. The service and quality of the food really has gone downhill the last few years. I had a family event here the last time I came for ~12 people. Food took a long time to come out and was cold. I'd... More
