We finally got to Slows BBQ in Corktown on Saturday afternoon for lunch. There was a Tigers game and the Detroit Grand Prix going on at the same time. Very busy, we had to wait half an hour, but it sure beats the long waits...More

Food is never anything short of excellent. Great drink selection as well. It's always busy so reservations are a good idea if you are part of a large group.

I'm allergic to MSG and don't believe they use it. Many of their products are organic and locally sourced.
