Wednesday night around 6:30, a group of four of us roll up, and it's an hour wait for a table. I'm not surprised. We find some room over by the bar, and study the chalk board of draft selections. Wow, really nice selection. A great variety, and more taps than I had expected.
All four of us got something different, and we all got to try something we hadn't had before on the trip. A nice mix of Belgian Imports, American Craft and alot of Michigan craft.

Even just as a beer destination in the Detroit area, Slow's is worth the stop.

The food wasn't anything special. This evening the chicken was very moist, the brisket was a touch dry, the ribs (short ribs) were mediocre and uncut (which makes it difficult for the customer to consume, no steak knife, and the butter knife wasn't eating through the meat either), and the pulled pork was the best thing on the plate. The sides were rather blan...but the corn bread was very good.
As being highly regarded as some of the best BBQ in the Midwest, I was pretty disappointed. It's a cool place, don't get me wrong, but there is better BBQ in Michigan.
