Restaurant Review: Slows (Detroit, Michigan)

 I've never been a big fan of BBQ & have shied away from trying such places. But I'm glad I decided to try Slows in the "D" after a recent Tigers game because it is fantastic!

My buddy Mike & I made it over to Slows pretty quickly after the post-game rush but they still said the wait was 2 1/2 hours. So we hovered behind some people at the bar & within 20 minutes we were seated at the bar. While waiting for our food, we got to sample some good pale ales that they have from the Blue Point Brewery. They have some seriously good beer on tap!

For my entree, I chose "The Big Three" which is their Carolina Style Pulled Pork, Smoked Chicken Breast and Texas Style Sliced Beef Brisket. With every entree, you get 2 side dishes so I chose the Mac & Cheese and the Sweet Potato Mash. The sauce I chose to slather over my "Big Three" was their Sweet sauce which according to the menu is "A Slows original – sweet with hints of lemon, onion and ginger." Everything I had was awesome! The sauce tasted so good, all of the meat was tender & was very flavorful without the sauce. And for $17.95, you get tons of food that provided me with dinner the next day! For someone who normally doesn't "dig on swine" and/or BBQ, it was a pleasant surprise!

The next time you are in the "D", I highly recommend giving Slows a try. You won't be disappointed!
