Food is very good. Location lacks convenient parking. Most times the place is too busy to get in. Only been 2x in the few years it's been open due to the aforesaid parking and wait "problems". If you can determine the "slow" time @ Slow's you should go as the food is worth it.

We couldn't have dinner there today because there was no parking. After several trips around the block, we gave up and went elsewhere. I don't plan on going back.

The food and service was very good. Bring your patience, there was a 45 minute wait. We went on a Sunday evening for dinner, busy.

Went for an early lunch during the week. Group of 7, most had real meat, I had the chicken which was in a nice sauce on toast. Waffle Fries were enjoyed as well! Lots of beer on tap

Slows is a very unique BBQ experience. Retro meets southern bayou. My fave is the Yard bird on Texas Toast (chicken with mushrooms bacon seasoned to perfection) with waffle fries and sometimes a side of gumbo! Great food nice atmosphere. Perfect spot for a pre or post downtown Detroit lunch or dinner.
