BBQ

I have taken a number of people from the south to this restaurant . They all say it is great BBQ. I am not a big fan of the restaurant but a lot of my friends love it. What can I say. It is not my favorite place but a lot of people love it. I may be back.

Over priced, You get fast food atmosphere at an expensive priced. The burgers are over priced but the milk shakes are worth the extra $. Ok if you are in a hurry an want to eat a greasy burger.

I'm not a huge bbq fan, but my better half is, so I (being a fair minded person) suggested we go here. We were seated fairly quick, 5 min wait. We decided on getting the feast for 2. And wow was it. Ribs, half a chicken, pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw, fried potatoes and 2 cornbread muffins. All I can... More

I had a salad with brisket in it. It was one of the best salads I've ever had. We had a group of 7 and waited for almost an hour for a table but it was Saturday night so that's okay. If I lived in the Detroit area I would eat there all the time.

Being from Texas I try BBQ all over the nation when I travel. Some Detroit natives are friends and they suggested this place. I was wanting to try the Texas style Brisket. So lets start.
