Ordered the Texas Brisket (deckle cut) with Jalapeno muffin & Mac/Cheese. There are 5 different types of sauces and I sampled them all...nice... read more

We have been to Red Smoke a couple of times and the food has been good, but this time we were very disappointed. It was Father's Day and we had ordered drinks which we got within a couple of minutes. We placed our order and asked for another round of drinks. They never came. We sat at our table waiting... More

We went with a group and everyone enjoyed their food. I really like the bbq sauce and tried to purchase some to bring home... They only had take out containers for the sauce so I had to decline since I was traveling bh plane or get home. Reasonable prices.

The Greektown area was fairly quiet when I went, so there was no wait to get in. This is a multi-level restaurant and each level is open and visible throughout the building. Service was good. I ordered the St. Louis ribs, which were a little crispy on the outside, but very tender on the inside. The flavor was very good.... More

We went yesterday after the Tigers game. Very few people in Greektown so there was no waiting. Our waitress was excellent. She never seemed to rush us and she was very attentive. Ribs were great! Very flavorful and a half slab with a side was plenty. They have five sauces at the table which they describe on the menu. It... More
