“Worth the wait”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

There's usually a long wait, but it's worth it if you love a touch of homemade richness with you meal. Friendly, hip staff. The Yard Bird is my favorite. The mac & cheese is divine, but very, very rich. Everything is big enough to split or take home for a second showing.

“Good pulled pork”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I wasn't as impressed as many others are with this place. Seemed a little overrated. Not that it wasn't good - it just didn't blow my socks off. I didn't think the corn bread was good at all.

“Top 10 in Detroit!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Aa of this writing Slow's is in the Top 10, which is pretty cool and possibly well-deserved. The barbeque is excellent, in the quality of the meats and the sauces and the variety, even if not wholly authentic to any one area (NC, TX, KC...) The wait never seems to be as long as they say it will be, and the bar is fairly large and you can wait or even eat there. Interesting beer list. A friendly staff that does their very best all the time even though they are often overtaxed. Also it's a great mix of people (Detroit hipsters, some, but it's far more interesting than just that) in a Detroit neighborhood you might not usually go into. This is my first stop every time I visit Motown.
