I made my third trip to the Blue Tractor before a Michigan basketball game. I had heard at Ashleys that they had just finished a renovation enlarging the place. Sounds like business is booming. I also heard that the beers were improving, and I have always heard that the food was good.

The first thing that I noticed when I walked in was the wonderful smell of barbecue. I looked like a dog with shoestrings of drool in the corners of my mouth. My date and I bellied up to the bar and were immediately greeted. We wanted to see what was on tap and asked for a minute. My bad, because that was the last time we got service without flagging down a bartender. Albeit, they were busy.

I really like the feel of the place (probably that bbq smell). The walls were covered in old barn siding and the tables and booths were modern. A unique feature was a cold strip that runs the entire bar for you to set you drinks on to keep them cold.

I finally settled on a Bumper Crop IPA and Hopicidal Maniac. Both were terrible. The food was good. I had a pulled pork samich and mac n cheese and my date got a half rack of ribs. They did mess up her order but neither one of us minded and the manager said the ribs would be free. They were not. But I wasn't paying so I didn't care. My date did love her ribs. I pried one out of her clenched jaw to try, and it was good. I did lose the tip of my finger though.

I really wanna like this place. I had a java stout that was awesome on a visit. It is hard to say a place is good though when one beer in three visits was all that I have liked. I recommend eating here and I will continue to stop in hoping to find another good stout.
