We went here expecting good BBQ as our first visit to Ann Arbor. It was a good visit but the BBQ was less than expected. Pros: Service was great, house-made beers were good, chicken slider and pretzel apps were tasty. mac-n-cheese was great. Cons: The ribs were awful- dry, puny in size, overly cooked and slathered in sauce. The pulled... More

Scott, Thank you for stopping in and taking time to share this with us. We are very sorry to hear about the ribs! That is something that is unacceptable and does not live up to our expectations.

Stopped by for a quick bite and a couple of beers. For beer, had their Porter and Stout. Both were very good. For food, had the slider sampler (brisket, pulled pork, chicken, and veggie). Those were decent but nothing special, meat was average quality. The fries were pretty good and they give you a few different BBQ sauces, out of... More

We stopped in for lunch. I tried to like this place but it was food that was unremarkable, nothing special. It was ok, nothing that would put this high on my list of places to go back to again. I had there equivalent of what I'd call a Turkey Reuben, kind of ordinary. Colleague had a mac and cheese thing... More

Busy restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. We did have a good 45 minute wait on the weekend to be sat. The restaurant is a good size and very busy. Our waiter was very attentive for being so busy. We had the burnt ends appetizer and biscuits to start. Everyone at our table liked both. I had the pulled chicken sandwich... More

I wanted to love this place. I looked at the menu ahead of time and was excited! I walked in and it had the right look. The hostess at the front door disappeared for quite some time which caused a server to help who didn't seem sure of where to place us. Let me say though he was a real... More

I had the BBQ Plate with the balsamic beans and crispy brussels sprouts with a basket of the thyme and cheddar biscuits. There are four different types of sauce on the table to dress your own meat. I enjoyed everything on my plate, but the brisket really hit the spot. I recommend getting honey with your biscuits instead of butter.... More

Where chains like Friday's or Applebee's may merely accommodate for different tastes in American cuisine, Blue Tractor does that and masters all of such tastes (within the boundaries of American barbecue). The sweet, the spicy, the savory, all scrumptious, all covered by the four different barbecue sauces you are welcome to try at any time. I was sharing ribs and... More

This place is best known for it's barbecue, but the other menu items are just as good. The food is great, the interior is beautiful, and the whole place smells really good. The staff is also the friendliest I've ever met, to the point that I had to ask if we'd somehow ended up in Canada instead of Ann Arbor.
