Great Pulled Pork

We ate here before the Kenny a Chesney concert. Great beer selection, 15 min wait for our table, good service and great pulled pork. My only negative is that I used the restroom before we were seated and notified the hostess that the soap was empty and returned to the bathroom after to dinner to... read more

Ate at Red Smoke on Saturday evening and it was very busy but we were promptly seated and once we ordered the food was out quickly. Gumbo soup was the best I've had anywhere. Also had the Rueben sandwich which was excellent. Multiple house BBQ sauces were all very good.

I found Red Smoke after being very disappointed with Slows. There menu was somewhat similar, Slows has dropped the ball. Red Smoke is excellent. All you first time visitors to the D check out Red Smoke in Greek Town.

I went to Red Smoke with some coworkers for lunch. The food was really good. The wait staff is very friendly. Prices are a tiny bit more than I usually pay for lunch out, but, the quality of the food is worth the boost in price. There are a lot of beers to select from (although I didn't not partake... More

We arrived early for a 6:15 pm reservation on a Tuesday night. It took more than 10 minutes for someone to take a drink order. Once our drinks came, it was another 15 minutes to take our dinner order. After waiting 70 minutes for dinner we were literally getting out of our chairs to walk out. That's when our food... More

Great pulled pork, ribs and craft beers. Great place in Greektown for a casual dinner. Walking distance to Comerica Park, the Casino and Ford Field.

Their BBQ is crave worthy. Just wish they had more space! It's fantastic BBQ with giant portions that somehow gets over looked.

A colleague and I were in town for work and stopped by this BBQ place because from Texas and he has a Texas appetite. The Caesar salad is home-made so get that for sure. I had a local craft beer and the brisket Mac and Cheese which was very filling. In fact... Split it if you can. My work partner... More
