Wow, did we ever pass up a good thing when the people that I was with opted not to take me here in February! It sat a couple of blocks north of the former Tiger Stadium site, and boy, was it deceptive. The address (correctly) was 2138 Michigan Avenue, but the number was frosted into the upper glass panel at the end of a short vestibule. “What fronts said vestibule?” you may ask. Well, how does a huge, horizontally slatted, varnished blonde wood doorway with a small mail-sized slot marked “Pull” grab you? Yeah, me too. Fortunately, some of the staff were on break and pointed to the way in. Phew.

The whole place was dominated by blonde and light-brown wood and exposed, unfinished brick. Along the right wall, headed aft, were three extremely high-backed booths, followed by the kitchen, all of the way aft. Fronting the kitchen were wide strips of hammered copper, fastened by pop rivets. Turning left after entering the door, I encountered the elongated, “U”-shaped, copper-topped bar. The right side of said bar, facing aft, was the smoking section. There was a nice, open passageway that bisected the bar, which was buttressed in the overhead by heavy bolted and nailed wood plates. This was probably necessary because the left side of the space, facing aft, is/was 2140 Michigan Avenue! To the far left were their restaurant tables and chairs, followed by three big picture windows overlooking Michigan Avenue. There was also a biergarten under construction, ostensibly due to open after 04 July weekend of 2006, on the site of what would have formerly been 2142 Michigan Avenue. The washrooms were all of the way aft on the left-hand side and continued the industrial feel with rough welds and a tiny concrete sink. The ambiance was also very good, with soft jazz and blues being played as background music.

The beer (and bourbon and wine) list came sandwiched between two wood boards, hinged together like a hospital clipboard. Ha! They featured twenty (20) taps and one hundred (100) bottles, almost all micros and quality imports. Fabulous.

Slow’s is right next to Michigan Central Station, which is one of those places you MUST visit when you’re in Detroit. The area looks run-down and ghetto (unsurprisingly), but there are a couple of quality stops around Michigan Avenue.

Slow’s is mighty cool, a BBQ-joint with two bars, nice bartenders, jazz music and tons of good beer. Among the brews on tap: Founders Smoked Porter, Griffin Claw Flying Buffalo, Founders Devil Dancer, Right Brain Looping Owl, Witch’s Hat Train Hopper, Short’s Goodnight… mostly Michigan, mostly rare, all high-quality.

Our bartender was burly, sweaty, slightly gruff and super knowledgeable. He gave me a bunch of samples because I was nice. We were in a bit of a hurry to make it to a lunch date so we stayed for only one beer and didn’t try the food, but you’d better bet I will check Slow’s again next time I’m in Detroit!

I stopped here for dinner while in Detroit on business. It was rated #1 place by BA to stop for a beer in Detroit, so I finally tried it.

The atmosphere is pretty cool, lots of woodwork, especially in the entrance. But the food and the beer is the draw:

There were about 15 taps, all with good selections: Maudite, Hennepin, Bell's Oberon, Bell's Consecrator, Arcadia IPA, Rogue Chocolate Stout, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald, Hoegaarden, and more. Also there were ~25 more Belgian and French style beers in bottles, including Trappists such as Westmalle, Rochefort, and Achel. Very good selection for a BBQ place.

The food was excellent and the beer was relatively low priced. I had Hennepin on tap for $4, and Saison DuPont (375ml) for $8. I highly recommend this place for a good dinner in Detroit.

I stopped into this place on a business trip after consulting Beer Advocate.

The area is a little questionable but this is a nice place. It's got exposed brick walls, natural woods finish and good natural lighting from the front windows. There's a U shaped bar in the center with booths on one side and tables on the other.

The bartenders were OK but didn't seem to be very outgoing with their service or knowledge of beer.

They have a large selection of beer on tap (I'd guess 20-25) and lots more in the bottle. I tried Ommegang Hennepin, Founder's Brewing Red's Rye and Goliath Triple. I found the selection good but not inspired.

The food was very, very good but a bit pricy for what you get. I had a catfish sandwich and at $9, you should get fries or something with it.

This is as good as I've found in the Detroit area but not exceptional when you consider other parts of the country.

Stopped here before the Wings Blues game on New Year's Eve. There is a good amount of free street parking.

Inside it was pretty damn busy. A 1 hr 15 minute wait for 2. We nabbed a spot at the bar though after about 5 minutes.

Our bartender was excellent. She game me a lot of free samples and was prompt about everything. The food is pretty good. I just got a sandwich and couldn't finish it. It was massive. The hot sauce is good but could be hotter. The tap selection was world-class although i was pissed they didn't have the Ayinger on tap that was on the boards.

I thought the prices were pretty reasonable. A world-class restaurant.

I made a visit to Slows last Friday afternoon. This place was high on my priority list for things to do while in Detroit. Little did I know at the time that my long weekend would turn into an unexpected week long trip in the Big D (thanks Hurricane Sandy).

After arriving at the airport, we jumped in a cab and went directly to Slows Bar Bq, with our cumbersome bags and all. The timing of our arrival was methodical, realizing that this place is notorious for long waits on the weekend. In retrospect, our mid-afternoon arrival, between lunch and dinner worked out quite well.

We started off Brisket Enchilada that was awesome and packed with flavor. The brisket was really tender and the enchilada tasted authentic. We spilt an entree, so I got to try the St. Louis Ribs and the brisket, everything is super flavorful. Awesome food, no doubt.

Slows showcases a very respectable selection of beers. I ordered from the draft selection, there is a large chalkboard up front that lists all of their selections. You can expect about 20 or so draft offerings with a heavy emphasis on Michigan based craft breweries. Awesome selections from Bells and Founders like Bells Two Hearted, Hell Hath No Fury, Batch #10,000 and Batch #11,000 (this was really tasty!), Founders Breakfast Stout & Harvest Ale.

I would say that this place is a must stop while in Detroit. Slows is an establishment that has done a wonderful job of offering great craft beer and high quality BBQ. Recommended.

A great place on the outskirts of downtown Detroit. I visited on a weekday evening around 7:30. On the outside, the surrounding area appeared disserted except for the lack of parking nearby the restaurant. On the inside, the place was full of folks and buzzing with conversation. This is exactly the type of restaurant you would expect to find in a renovated old building in a downtown urban setting. I sat at the large bar in the center of the restaurant and ordered both food and beer. They have a fantastic selection of beers on tap and in bottles. I had a draft Chambly Noir from Unibroue that was outstanding. I like most all of Unibroue’s beers, but I rarely find them on tap. The black Belgian style ale went well with the “Big Three” BBQ entree that I ordered (a combo plate of pulled chicken, pulled pork and sliced brisket). The food was excellent as well, and it came out before I even finished perusing the extensive beer menu. The service was prompt and professional, the crowd was an urban mix of all ages, and the selection of BBQ sauces added an extra level of satisfaction to my dining experience. I found that the Apple BBQ sauce went well with my chicken, the Mustard sauce was great on the brisket and the Spicy sauce was a good compliment to the pulled pork. The sweet potato mash and cornbread were also quite tasty. After my meal, I ordered a bottle of Duchess de Bourgogne. This is an amazing beer and a testament to the well thought out selection of Belgian and French style ales offered at Slow’s. Quite honestly, I found this to be the best BBQ restaurant I’ve visited in recent memory. I will certainly return.

While Slow's may get (rightfully) lauded on this website, it is first and foremost a top-notch barbecue joint, one of the only restaurants in the city of Detroit that will be filled on a Monday at 12:05.

The entire restaurant is done in a simple wood-paneling, and a main bar divides the entryway from the main dining room. The kitchen is just off to the side, and it's easy to sneak a peek inside. I won't say much more about the atmosphere here, because it's the food and beer (and bourbon) that are front and center.

Slow's meats may be the best barbecue I've tasted outside the Carolinas, Texas or Missouri, and what's best about it is that it takes the best of each of those bbq hotbeds and brings them to downtown Detroit. The pulled pork, brisket, and chicken are all delicious and taste even better when tossed with one of Slow's homemade sauces. The Apple BBQ and Mustard are spectacular, and their Spicy BBQ, Sweet BBQ, North Carolina Sauce, and Jalapeno Garlic are all impressive as well. I also enjoyed my homemade side dishes--sweet potato mashers, greenbeans with mustard sauce, potato salad, and a rich, buttery slice of cornbread. I split the fried catfish appetizer with the folks I ate with, and there was more than enough to fill us twice over on the table. Not a single dish was short of brilliant.

As for beer--right this is a beer review after all--they've got about twenty taps fitted with brews specifically chosen to match the barbecue. Over the course of the meal I had a Founders Pale Ale, Hennepin, and Bell's Best Brown. Amongst the other taps were Two Hearted Ale, Arcadia IPA, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Maudite, and Rogue Chipotle Ale. Their bottle list, which is also available on their website, is equally impressive, and all this in a bar that has a wide-ranging collection of American whiskies to boot! The beer does the food justice--no small feat given how fantastic an eatery this is.

The only downside to Slow's is that it lives up to its name. We waited over 40 minutes for our lunch. Our server, to her great credit, apologized and offered us a free round of beers, and the wait was certainly worth the food. But, caveat emptor, you might wait for a bit for Slow's dishes.

Slow's is much more than a "beer bar." It's a great restaurant that acknowledges the importance of great beer, and eating here, one almost helps to elevate craft beer to a much merited status of food 'pairer.' If the craft beer movement is going to enter and change the realm of haute cuisine (as I believe it should) by shifting the way people think about food and drink pairings, we'll need more places like Slow's.

Don't miss it.

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.

I saw this listing on BA and figured it would make for a good stop during a recent trip to Detroit. I'm very glad this listing was here, because otherwise I would never have found this gem.

We stopped in for lunch on a cold day and sat at a table near the front door. It was sort of chilly, but fortunately they had some big, hearty beers on tap for us to enjoy. Our server seemed pretty knowledgeable about the beers and made some good suggestions for side dishes (definitely get the mac 'n' cheese). The bar was centered in the dining area and there were several booths along one wall.

Current draft beers were listed on a chalkboard. There were offerings from Shorts, several from Dragonmead, Arcadia, North Coast, Founders Breakfast Stout and Great Lakes Eddie Fitz (+ a couple more I can't remember off the top of my head). Definitely leaning towards local craft beers. Plenty more locals, regional craft and imports available in bottles, so there's no lack of good drinking options.

As good as the beer was, it's the food that really shines at Slow's. This was some of the best soul food I've had outside of Harlem. At our table, we tried the fried catfish appetizer (delicious) and wings (full wings slow cooked rather than the chopped up things you get everywhere else) to start. Entrees were impressive. The half rack of ribs filled the plate and the triple threat sandwich was packed with nothing but pulled pork, ham, and bacon. I had the beef brisket, which consisted of a pound of thin sliced meat all by itself on a plate. Sides were served on side plates and were nearly a meal on their own. There were five homemade BBQ sauces available at the table, so you could choose what you wanted or mix and match. The apple BBQ sauce was the fav at our table.

Overall, we left stuffed and full of good beer. It was quite reasonably priced too, just check the website to see current prices for food and beer. I know I'll be back the next time I visit Detroit. Highly recommended.

Based on good-ol' Beerfly, I decided to try this place. And what an experience. On a cold, overcast "spring" day, while in town for a conference, I drove to this completely derelict looking part of town, full of abandoned buildings (not the least of which was old Tigers Stadium, which I last visited some 30 plus years ago at my first ever MLB game), and a slightly unnerving feel. Honestly, I wasn't too sure about coming here. But I saw the street around the building full of cars, and there was nothing else open, so they all had to be here for Slow's.

And in entering the place, they are really trying to revitalize a very depressed area, and I give them a lot of credit. A mix of old bricks (the original building), old wood, and new stone makes for a pleasant atmosphere, even to the point of new tech, high tech waterless urinals. My biggest problem is that I am no longer used to smokers indoors- they were limited to half of the wrap-around bar, but still was hard to take. Overall, it is first and foremost a BBQ restaurant that centers around this bar.

But a very nice bar indeed. 20 taps, 40-60 bottles, mostly very good. I enjoyed 2 midwestern brews from tap with a great pulled pork sandwich and Mac and Cheese side, but they also had Stone Old Guardian and Pale Ale, Hennepin, and a bunch of quality taps.

Highly recommended for both beer and food, plus the opportunity to see a real effort to rebuild a part of town that has seen much better days.

Visited with my girlfriend before heading to the Wings & Jets game on December 10th.

Atmosphere: finished-wood-on-worn-brick decor gives the place an inviting "down home" feel that works well for a barbecue joint. Lots of tables surrounding a U-shaped bar with some light coming in from outside. Only complaint is that we felt a bit cramped since the restaurant was jam packed.

Service: our server was a really funny and jovial guy who provided great recos and lots of laughs. Food came out quickly and after we finished our meal he assured us that we still had plenty of time to enjoy a few drinks (but we had a game to catch!).

Selection: went with an Arbor Brewing Milestone Porter on cask and a pint of Larry Hoppe Double IPA from the same brewery. Both beers paired beautifully with the BBQ and my girlfriend liked her white wine. Other standouts were Southern Tier Mokah, Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald, and Weihenstephaner White Hoplosion on tap and Stone 15th Anniversary in bottles.

Food: ordered the three dishes that were featured on MVF Nation (Brisket Enchilada, Slow's Mac-N-Cheese, Triple Threat Pork); each one was incredibly good. The pork was super tender and juicy and I couldn't get enough of the delicious spicy sauce on the Enchilada. First-rate fare.

Overall: Slow's combines my two favourite things like no other. This would be my regular hangout if I lived in the area and it's probably even better during down times (if they have any). A mandatory stop for beer and barbecue lovers with the best micro lineup in Detroit.

Slow's is a place that you wouldn't just happen to find in your wanderings. It's not in a trendy neighborhood lined with sidewalk cafes and art galleries. It's on Michigan Ave near Rosa Parks Blvd almost in the shadow of the old train station.

The name is a statement of how food should be. The essence of Barbecue (q) is time. It can't be hurried. Low & slow is the mantra.

The menu is a combination of barbeque & southern comfort foods with a few twists. I chose thier version of surf & turf: blackened (or fried) catfish, brisket, and jambalaya. My two sides were macaroni & cheese and corn bread. The fish, jambalaya and corn bread were good, but the brisket and macaroni were among the best I've ever had. The brisket was fork tender, juicy and delicious. Add a little spicy sauce, and it was killer. The mac was creamy with a nice crust of cheese on top. We also had barbecue buffalo wings as an appetizer. The apple barbeque sauce was perfect on the chicken.

Slow's beer menu was pretty darn good as well. They showcase Michigan breweries with selections from Short's, Bell, Founders, Jolly Pumpkin and Motor City, but also carry some beers from Rogue, Stone, Unibrou and Great Lakes to name a few. There are beer menus on the table, which always helps make choosing easier.

Service was solid. Our server wasn't a full on beer geek, but knew the taplist and asked others to get answers she didn't know.

Go.

Had heard and read alot about this place and I love the cue so I headed on over after the Tiger game last Thursday.In the section of Corktown in Detroit near old Tiger stadium,really not much parking we found a spot acroos the street off to the side of the place,alot of wood in the interior with a big bar that goes thru the front room into the side room.I didnt get the number of taps I would say 30-35 with a heavy tilt towards MI. micros I had a Founders pale ale,and a Bell's Concecrator doppelbock.We had the bbq beef and gouda enchiladas they were awesome,for an entree I had the tri platter of brisket pulled pork and pulled chicken the chicken was very good the brisket was ok and the pulled pork seemed a bit dry but was flavorful.Iam not a big fan of eastern style NC style bbq but the vinegar and chili based sauce was spot on for the style,also a sweet,spicey,apple based,and orange oberon sauce was available with the spicey sauce my personal favorite.Its always good to find a good cue place with a great tap selection,a good place to go while in metro Detroit.

Went here on advice from cmore. Right down the road from old Tigers stadium. Not the best part of town but definitely worth braving the conditions to go to this great joint.

Tap selection was very good with many Michigan brews that I would have loved to try. I did get to sample Short's IPA. They also had Atwater, Bell's, Rogues, Michigan Brewing, and many other great tappers. Bottle selection was also tremendous both imports and craft beers alike. We all split a bottle of Hitachino Weizen after dinner. Also to note a wonder scotch and whiskey list was also available. I also recognized many "good" bottles of wine although I did not view a wine list.

Food was awesome. I have a brisket sandwich with smoked gouda and onion marmalade and a side of black beans. 5 different sauces to choose from at your table (or the bar for us) which were all very tasty. Served on your choice of texas toast or Kaiser roll. I chose Texas. Sandwich was great and I'd love to try some of their other goodies.

Only thing lacking in this joint was service was pretty subpar. Seems we had too wait quite awhile in between ordering beers, food, beers. According to cmore this usually isn't the case.

Only other complaint is cmore drank them out of Short's Cherry Porter before we could make it to Michigan.

Highly recommended and I look forward to returning if ever in the area.

I visited Slows before a Tigers game. It was in a run down neighborhood. I actually walked by the front door and didn't realize it was the entrance. Once I entered, around 12:45pm on a Friday, I was told that there was a 45 minute wait. I figured the lunch rush was about over. Luckily, two seats opened at the bar.

The place is quaint. They had I think 20 beers on tap with about half being from Michigan. It was a decent selection. I was more impressed by the food. I had to have some of the barbecue and the mac and cheese was delicious!

The server was amiable and competent. I thought the beer leaned toward the high side as far as price goes and for the offerings but overall it was well worth it.

Went with friends who are ardent Slow's fans, and it's easy to see why. Great set up inside with exposed beams, brick and wood detailing. Place was packed, and we thought we'd got there early (just before 5pm on a Saturday) - evidently not. No problems though, just sit at the bar and enjoy the excellent tap list (Arcadia, Dragonmead, Motor City, Bells, Founders, Great Lakes, JP, Shorts and on and on) Nice to see the focus is on regional and local brews. Food was outstanding with monsterous portions. Service was efficient and quick considering how slammed they were. My vote is for the NC sauce. Go, eat, drink and enjoy the meat sweats.

Oh ya - if you've got 6 or more in your group be sure to make a reservation.

ADDENDUM: The beer list at Slow's has grown as quickly as its number of patrons. Without a single macrobrew on its list and only a limited number of overzealous American micros, the 10 or 12 pages is that much more impressive. A majority of the beers are obviously selected to match the cuisine perfectly. There are bigger lists in Michigan, but there is no BETTER list in Michigan.

OLD REVIEW (10-10-2005): Saddled up to the porcelin pot, it took me a moment or two to recognize the accoustic southern blues tunes playing over the speaker. Sounded about right for the cuisine, though it was interesting the audio was more theme appropriate in the restroom than in the dining room. It was a good first impression, however, as I'd hurried through the place to the back, not giving much of a glance as I passed through.

The beer list is good, though the knowledge -- as might be fair to expect at a new place -- is lacking. Ch'Ti is not Castelain with a different label; thanks for playing. (You're forgiven though because you charge a miniscule 4 dollars for a pint of Dead Guy Ale and a paltry 6 bucks for a bottle of Orval.)

I can't do any more justice to the aesthetic or to the creativity placed in the details than has already been done by inebrius. But I can, if provoked, expend much energy rambling on and on and on and on (and on) about the sauces. My meal selection was The Big Three: chicken, pork, and brisket. At first I dribbled the sauces on just a bit because, really, the smokey flavors and ragged, varying textures were appealing enough. But once I got my favorite combos down, I slathered. I drenched. I swamped. I drowned. Chicken with the mustard sauce. And I have to agree that the Apple BBQ is the greatest thing to come out of a squeezy bottle since 45spf hit the scene for those of us with a Casper-like complexion.

The pork and brisket were better, I think, than the chicken. Perhaps that's obvious. I wasn't impressed by my cornbread, but I couldn't help but steal a sizeable portion of my wife's mac n cheese. I never eat mac n cheese -- good, bad, processed, homemade, elbow, shaped like little cartoon characters, whatever -- but I couldn't really stop myself. Black beans, fried catfish, and corn flan also helped lend my denim wasitband a certain elasticity as I filled up.

All in all, I found it immensely satisfying. It's a great atmosphere, our waitress was quick beyond her three days of experience, and the people seemed very friendly. I'm curious to try the sandwiches, because I have to imagine that one could escape with a big sandwich and the right low-cost beer for 10 bucks, which is pretty amazing considering the $6.95 low-rent turkey wraps slathered in week-old Garden Foods mayo being peddled at so many places these days.

Slow's is refreshing for its food, for its drink, and for its change of pace. Eating oneself into a daze never felt so good.

This is one of the stops that I looked forward to the most. Being able to combine two of my favorite loves, beer and bbq together in one place is quite special.
For a place to have food this good and all the beer available that they do should be a sin. The food was hearty and absolutely delicious. Whenever you can have a Shorts Huma Lupa IPA with your pulled pork sandwich, life has to be good. If I had a place like this locally, I would be there at least once a week with no problem what so ever. The beer list is enough to bring you there alone. Then when you couple the incredible food with it this place is a no brainer. Detroit has something very special with this place and to say that I'm jealous would be an understatement.
