Good place to hang out

Went to Ann Arbor for a football game. Went here on Friday and Saturday evenings. We ended up there Saturday after the game because all the places we tried closer to the stadium were jammed. As the name implies they brew their own beer. Used to brew pubs on the east coast I ordered a pitcher and... read more

We ordered an El Camino sandwich and the bbq platter. We had the blueberry coffee cake w/ ice cream for dessert. All were phenomenal. Great bar service.

My husband and I went for an early dinner on a Sunday. I had the pastrami sandwich--which was the best pastrami I think I have ever had--very lean and full of flavor, and my husband hand the brisket sandwich, which he said was very good too. Their homemade pickles are to die for, and we got the deep fried pickle... More

Blue Tractor probably doesn't have the best food of the BBQ places around Ann Arbor (which is not meant to be critical, because the food is very good), but it is consistently the most fun. With new beers always rotating through and a bunch of delicious signature cocktails, Blue Tractor is a great place for a night out.

Nice atmosphere, good service, good food, reasonable prices. I had the turkey soup and my wife had the hamburger with bleu cheese. Both were good.

So, the restaurant is precious. Loved the vibe, loved the ambiance and the service was great. I was so pumped that they had tasty sounding entrees and it was my first spot that had grits on the menu since I moved here from Texas. All of our food was just okay. Mine was not super warm, the jalapeño grits were... More

I've been there several time, and each of them I always thought "I never ever eat a burger better than this". It was too good to remember its taste. Now that I'm back in Italy I'm depressed thinking on not having such burger here.

Blue Tractor is one of our favorite places in A2. Our sons are meat lovers, and this always satisfies them. Good bbq, good brews, good service.

They have the refrigerated frozen thing that is built into the bar. Definitely keeps your micro brew chilled while you enjoy the tasty bbq. The only trouble is deicing which of their micros to have. Honestly some are better than others but the good news is you can have a sample while deciding.

A great place to eat bbq food, but served restaurant style - by this I mean that you don't get a selection of sides. Each meat is described on the menu with predetermined sides, though they seem to be very amenable to substitutions (some at an additional cost, others at no additional cost). The food was really tasty. Service was... More
