Really enjoyed their smoked BBQ ribs Lots of sauces and containers to take it with you for home. A bit slow for ordering and waiting but otherwise very nice

Have been to Slow & Low several time and we get the pulled pork sandwich. Not a skimpy sandwich & they will serve with slaw in the sandwich. BBQ is tender & very flavorful, our most favorite BBQ place in town.

I really want to like this place as it is very convenient. Ive tried 3 times but I cant go back any more. Ive tried the pulled pork twice, once on a sandwich and once as a plate. The pork itself was just ok but when you add the sauce it was serviceable. The straw that broke the camel's back... More

I really wanted to like this place. Upon arrival was told they were out of ribs! Not a big deal for us but how does a BBQ joint run out of ribs!! Anyway, we ordered brisket and pulled pork. Pork was actually very good. Not to dry, but not too wet! Sauce selection was very limited. Brisket was like a... More

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. The sides are great which is unusual for a place that makes good bbq. Very well rounded and the service is always great.

I was hesitant when pulling into the parking lot, not much of a building from the outside. I decided to give it a try and am happy I did! I had a brisket sandwich and it was amazing. Seriously, the best I've ever had. I actually wet back and bought a pound of brisket to take with me. The staff... More

We stopped in on our way from Little Rock, AR to central PA. Brandon and Harvey made us feel like we were old friends. I had a full rack of Baby Back Ribs that were tender "fall of the bone" delicious and so big I had trouble finishing them (my wife had to help). To be truthful I was enjoying... More

Last minute choice was a good decision. Great service. The pulled pork yummy. Okra was perfect. Mac n cheese wasn't ad good as I had hoped. All in all a nice dinner.

We pulled in after a 12 hour drive from Texas, not really expecting much. It was late and we were the only customers in the place. First off, let me say to NEVER order the jalapeno sausage. It's the size and texture of a hot dog. Skip it! The brisket, turkey, and ribs were cooked quite well. The sides were... More

After a quick 10 minute Uber ride we had arrived with high expectations. Thankfully this place delivered. We had the pulled chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket plates with corn bread and different sides (French fries, onion rings, tater salad, corn nuggets etc). The meat was very tender with great flavour. Having never had corn bread before I can't compare,... More
