BBQ in Greektown? Definately worth trying!!

Went to Red Smoke for dinner before a Tigers game. Heard some rumblings of this place through some friends so we thought we would give it a shot. 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

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

We are from the south, so it's hard to get good BBQ like we expect up north. But this place had some pretty good BBQ, and the sauces (5 options I believe) were spot on. Sweet potato fries were delicious, and the service was prompt. All in all, great trip!

I'm a girl from the south and my grandpa makes amazing BBQ in his own smokehouse and this place sure came close to beating it! My fiance and I split one of the combo platter with shredded pork, brisket and chicken. The brisket just melts in your mouth, it was so yummy! Our server was great, very upbeat and always... More

Red Smoke was suggested to us by the gentlemen at the front desk of Holiday Inn Express. So we decided to go and we didn't regret it at all. The food was amazing and the prices were not that bad. We got the "Feast" if you are hunger after you leave you are a big eater. I like the idea... More

I know that everyone thinks in order to get good bar-b-que one has to go the world famous Slow's of Detroit. Even Guy Fieri came to Detroit and went to Slow's. The problem is he never stopped at Red Smoke on Monroe Street in Greektown. The food at Red Smoke is better than Slow's. I work in Downtown Detroit and... More
