Went to Slow’s last night had close to a hour wait, it was worth it.The Reason which is a Pork butt sandwich for me, my wife had Niman Ranch Brisket Enchilada and potato salad, my wife’s niece and her husband had The Longhorn which is a Niman Ranch beef brisket sliced thin with our special onion marmalade, smoked gouda and spicy sauce. we all thought it was the best and will go back. the only down side was they ran out of the beers the lady’s wanted. the waiter went out of his way and came back with a couple of samples for them to try and they liked what he brought them and they were able to enjoy a beer with dinner

Absolutely love the food and beer selection here. The best mac and cheese I’ve ever had and some of the best pulled pork I’ve had. Need to get there early or else you’ll be waiting awhile for a table though. I think the service lacks sometimes because the place gets packed and its hard for the staff to get places quickly. Update 5/16/13 - They expanded now and more than doubled the number taps. Expanding has also helped the service since the place doesn’t get as packed anymore. Love this place.

about 20 beers on draft, including some very, very nice ones. big ones like devil dancer, pumking, founders breakfast... also some great bottles from mikkeller, nogogne, and more.. wine and meads also available. great food and a cool decor. going on the weekend might result in a long wait.

If you’re from around Metro Detroit and have heard of the Slow’s, then you know you don’t need to read these reviews. The most amazing bbq on this side of Mars. Amazing food, great beer selection (especially with local craft brews on tap), and nice, fun interior. A few drawbacks of this place are: the prices, as food is a bit pricey (you won’t walk away hungry, however), though beer prices are standard, service has been a bit hit or miss, the location is in the middle of nowhere-Michigan Ave.-cum-Detroit-Strip-Club-central, and because of the almost intimate setting, space is limited. I would wait hours to get some of that Yardbird sandwich, though. Mmm. Yes.

Like a diamond in a turd, Slow’s is a bona fide institution in an area where nothing should thrive. The tap selection is outstanding and the food is great. My family is from the South and this is the only place north of Cincinatti that gets the food right. Clean, relaxing atmosphere. Lots of wood. Always busy, but you can sign in and have a Pabst at the hole in the wall (they have a Champale bar mirror) next door while waiting to be seated. Slow’s is a bit pricey for the locale, but an absolute "must-stop" when in Detroit for sporting events, concerts, etc.

Rustic clean atmosphere. Seems constantly crowded, but with rapid turnover. They have a very good regional beer selection with rotating taps from shorts, arcadia, bells, original gravity, etc which are very good. They have a moderate bottle list and a great wine selection. The food is outstanding. A must see in Detroit.

Arrived to find a fairly crowded restaurant, but we were able to get a table immediately because there were only two of us. Some pretty interesting architecture. We had a moment of difficulty finding the front door, hehe. Friendly and attentive service. Really a lot of great tap selections. Good bottle selection from what I was able to determine, but lack of an up-to-date list limits my ability to judge their bottle selection. Food can’t be argued with: everything was great. I had the beef brisket and judged that it didn’t need any sauce, but all four sauces I tried were great and added a nice variety to my dinner. Both of the sides (black beans and mac and cheese) were also outstanding. I had a great time here.
