Slow's BarBQ Detroit

My co-workers took me to Slow's BarBQ on Michigan Avenue in Detroit for a birthday lunch earlier this week. I had the brisket entree with black beans and potato salad.  For a bbq restaurant, the brisket was very good. I really enjoyed my lunch.

It was my third trip to Slow's and the second time I actually got to eat bbq while I was there. That's the trouble with hip and happenin' restaurant's sometimes - they are so busy you have to wait 3 hours to eat at them. That experience is a long story that I won't go into here, but if you decide to make a trip to Slow's I encourage you get there early, or plan on the possibility that you may be waiting a while.

This is EXACTLY why I don't go there and don't recommend anyone else to. I always present a very zen question to a potential visitor...'is a restaurant you can't get in to really any good?'

My friend and I have tried to go there on a Tuesday evening with no sporting events in town, only to be told there's a multi-hour wait. No thank you.

Thankfully, over time there are more and more barbecue choices in the Detroit area that will give you a nicely smoked meal without all the hipster hype and soviet-era bread line wait. It's really just not that great, and it's certainly not worth waiting for three hours in Detroit's not-all-that-safe Corktown area for.
