Really good BBQ

Stopped here after watching a Jays game. Cajun fish bites as an appetizer were extremely tasty. brisket was cooked perfectly, nice and tender, just pulled apart how it should. overall a nice bbq joint in the heart of greektown.

Came here for a business lunch. The Greektown area is so nice, and this BBQ restaurant doesn't disappoint. I had the ribs with their house made sausage. Amazing!

And I still love it! Good food. Amazing bbq sauces... fun atmosphere. We were there on a really busy night (lots of groups, convention in town) and we had a reservation... and it's a good thing, the walk-in wait was 2+ hours. We had a group of 12. Everyone LOVED there food, and with the group of high schoolers with... More

We found this gem after a Blue Jay’s victory. It has a fun atmosphere and an impressive selection of craft beers. Also has a decent selection of side dishes. Our server was attentive and the food was awesome! Fortunately we had a fridge in our hotel room and a cooler for the car so we could enjoy the leftovers the... More

We had a group of 20 and we were served with friendly service. All meals were delicious. Great variety of sauces Mudd was my favorite maple syrup mild. The Mac and cheese and sweet potatoes side was amazing.

Amazing ribs at this place. Was my first time in Detroit and Michigan and was recommended. I also had corn bread -first time having it and a taste to be desired. Would recommend anyone around should try the ribs and the in-house sauce

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor about this restaurant, I was very excited to try it. We stopped in at Red Smoke prior to a Detroit Tigers game in July for a quick bite. We took our own seats at the bar and the hostess was friendly and provided menus. We were ready to order a drink, but none of... More

Came to watch tigers and jays / last night decided to stop in and try their brisket. Incredible. Get deckle which is a little more fat but so flavorful moist and meaty. The baked beans may be the best I ever had. Each sauce was flavorful and different. Great smoke ring around the meat - not one dry mouthful. Liked... More
