Had a free night in Dearborn while in town for work. After a Metro Detroit search search on RB.com I ’discovered’ Slows. Located in Corktown near the Michigan Central Station. Parked on Michigan Avenue and after two tries found the door to get into Slows. Place was bumping on an early Thursday evening. Large selection of beer including many Michigan brewed micros. Food was quick, ample, great BBQ and sides. Staff was attentive, and even stocked an old hometown favorite, Stroh’s.

Easy to find location with easy street parking. Busy but got two seats at bar. Friendly staff and good service. Good draft and bottle selection. Food was delivered quickly and was nice portions at a very fair price. Well worth the visit and rating.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem in a rather forlorn downtown Detroit locale. There is a fine selection of local and not so local brews on tap, as well as bottles. There is a fairly extensive menu of barbequed and deep fried dishes that are quite tasty. There was a lively crowd filling the bar and most tables on a Friday afternoon. An amazing place.

Have been several times now and always impressed with the excellent food and killer beer selection. Just visited last week to check out the new expansion and have a couple. They added a small bar area with a few more tables . Very nice addition to an already great place, came in after a Wings game on a Saturday sat at the new bar and had now 36 taps! YES! The already excellent beer selection got better!

Nice place near where I was staying in Detroit. Food is great, nice neighbourhood atmosphere. No sample flights here but bartenders provide small samples if you ask nicely. Food is amazing - lots of smoked, barbecue offerings here. Beer menu is about half local and half mixture between national and international.

Really impressive tap list consisting of mostly (but not exclusively) Michigan beers. Also, a respectable bottle list. The food is great. They give you like 6 or 7 different types of bbq sauce when you order. Also, like the ambiance and the service. Well worth a visit.

Great tap selection, no crap on tap. Food is really good... I’m from the south, they know their southern food. World class beers.

A nice place in Detroit is always a plus. Good ambiance and service. Selection is good but not great. I have not been overly impressed with the BBQ, but most are. Prices are good.

The food alone can get this place a 10 but the beer selection is very nice as well
