Amazing food!

Just came back from lunch at the Blue Tractor. It's a barbeque place, but has other options on the menu. I had the brisket sandwich and it was amazing. They have four different kinds of bbq sause (purple lid is best). We had some biscuits as appetizers and they were really good, though I think... read more

My colleague and I travel a lot, and are both huge BBQ fans, so when our Ann Arbor host recommended the Blue Tractor, we had to give it a try. Turned out to be a very nice experience. The brisket, ribs and pulled pork were tender and tasty and were accompanied by baked beans (good, but not great) and cheesy... More

Actually, our server Meredith was amazing, so I guess I can't say it is just someone in the kitchen! That being said, service has never been an issue for me at BT. However, it felt that a couple of years ago the food was a little 'tired'. On today's visit the food issue has obvious turned the corner, as our... More

I've been here several times and it's always great. Attentive, friendly servers, excellent food, outstanding tap list and laid back atmosphere. The last time I went we were a party of around 10 and the service was as quick as if we were a table of 2.

Pretty good experience, with really good BBQ and fairly good beer. I visited mid-week for lunch and the place was empty. Bartender was very helpful and insightful with respect to beer selection. While their beers aren't spectacular, they're interesting. I had the assortment of sliders, which gives you a good sampling of the BBQ options at this place. A pretty... More

This is not a hole in the wall, the food here is "VERY" good. I had the BBQ Plate which I think is their signature meal. They have four(4) sauces, I really enjoyed their original and sweet sauce which complimented my BBQ Plate(ribs, pull pork, and I substituted the beef brisket for the link, I also substituted the cheesey grits...

We had a group of 9 for a Friday night. They couldn't get us in until 9, but told us to arrive early and they would squeeze us in. True to their word, they got us a table at 8:30pm. All of us remarked at the cute decor. It felt very laid back and hip at the same time. The... More

I'll try to be kind, however there are very few positive comments I can make regarding our January 1 visit to Blue Tractor. First of all, I should be clear - we were upstairs. I understand there are two operations BT and Mash. We were upstairs in the restaurant. Arrived at 7 and we were seated immediately as there was... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon when the place wasn't busy. We were seated immediately and ordered our drinks. I ordered the El Camino sandwich and my husband had the Brisket. It was instant heaven. The meat just melted in your mouth. You hardly had to chew it. You get 4 bottles of bbq sauce placed on the table to... More
