Slows Bar BQ lives up to the hype! The ridiculous wait tells you that the food is awesome. You have to have some patience if you are going here because two hour waits are not uncommon. The smell of BBQ smacks you in the face as soon as you enter Slows. The bar atmosphere is complimented by an almost cottage-like feeling. The high ceilings and wood decor gives Slows such a warm distinctive feel, you feel like you are at a chalet. The place was two packed, so me and my buddy had to get take-out. The server was very nice and helpful. He suggested, quite nicely, to give us all the sauces they had. All five sauces give you and others something to talk about. Which one is better?? Why??? The meal becomes a social event. It's really an experience for sure. We had the pull pork, chicken and ribs with two sides (macaroni and cheese, waffle fries with cheese). Everything is excellent! The ribs were out of this world. The chicken is addictive. The pulled pork was just excellent. My favourite sauce the applewood smoke. So good!! The Mac and cheese is crazy rich. Crazy awesome! Located in the oldest neighbourhood, Corktown, Detroit, Slows Bar BQ is worth the short drive from downtown. The fact that it has been featured on Man vs. Food helps to speak of Slows success. I would go out of my way to enjoy a meal at Slows. That's how good it is!
