Our daughter took us here for dinner because she had eaten here before an liked it. I had the beef brisket medium. It was so tender and utterly delicious. We order corn bread appetizer and it was very good. My side choices were sweet potato mash and collard greens (I highly recommend them). One of the best meals I've had... More

Can recommend the combo platter, and the pulled pork with sweet potato fries. Especially good mustard based potato salad. Impeccable, friendly but not intrusive service at lunch the day we visited. Casual atmosphere. The blues music piped in is a plus.

Plenty of menu choices based on BBQ. Generous portions. Good service with a sense of humor. Can be noisy - aim for a street-side back table near the window. Pickles provided as complimentary are really good. Ask for more - they bring with a smile.

We visited there a year or so ago. It was good BBQ. Not as good as Slows but better than the Woodshop. Nice craft beers. Waitstaff was knowledgable and friendly. Recommend.

I have dined at this establishment a few times and each time I ordered something different (always bbq). The brisket was lean and tender. The sweat potato fries delish. Service wonderful with a good atmosphere.

Pretty good BBQ in Detroit's northern suburbs. Whatever you get I recommend you also order the hot links a la carte -- they're that good. As a matter of fact everything is pretty darn good. It would be easier to tell you the things that were not good so here goes: Catfish -- I don't know what I was expecting,... More
