Had a dinner for 4 tray last Saturday evening. With my Mother and Oldest Son. I've had other BBQ but not in quite some time. Man, that sauce is good! Of course it is tomatoe-based but the other ingredients plus the pepper made my tongue do a happy dance. The sauce comes squeeze bottle and I went through two of... More

Nice spot and great staff. Good place for a quick beer in Greektown. We did not eat but the food look unique and very good. We will try it out again when we are back in town.

We were in Detroit to attend baseball games, and were staying near Greektown. Took a look at the menu outside the restaurant and wandered in. We live in Syracuse NY, home of the Dinosaur BBQ, and are usually skeptical of other BBQ joints. Very pleasantly surprised with Red Smoke! Friendly servers, funky decor, and good solid barbecue. I had the... More

Had the deep fried pickles, quesidilla appetizer, pit burger and Mac and cheese. The noodles for the Mac and cheese were thick and meaty, sauce was great. Burger was super big, juicy, when you eat the pit burger you must put the slaw on the burger, it's the only way. Service was great and the beer was cold.

Food was nothing special. For a family of 4 for basic sandwiches, we paid $80.00. We won't go back.. There are many other restaurant in the area with better food and value.

Okay: this is not a big date night kind of place that centers around a high-end dinner. But if you have an agenda downtown and want a nice-paced, not too expensive BBQ meal to energize you, this place rates. The pulled pork sandwich and the apple smoked all natural chicken dinner were both moist and tasty. 5 sauces are available... More

Red Smoke has a variety of Carolina, Memphis, Texas, and St. Louis BBQ so while it may not make hardcore BBQ lovers happy, it was perfect for our diverse group from across the country. The fried pickles were delicious and I also enjoyed the lean brisket. The noise level is fairly high but it is a cool atmosphere and accommodated... More

I was in town on business and staying in Greektown at the casino. After a pretty lame Detroit River dinner cruise, I was still hungry and stopped into Red Smoke. I had a small sampler that had four bones of ribs and my choice of another meat...I chose the brisket. The ribs were meaty and the brisket was very good.... More
