Slows BBQ, located within the city limits of Detroit but not right downtown, is some of the best BBQ I've ever had. I never expected to find my favorite BBQ in Michigan, of all places.
This places gets crowded very quickly as it is not very large, and they do not take reservations. The wait is worth it, though. I got the half pound of pulled pork, with sides of mac n cheese and the waffle fries. The pulled pork comes out on a plate just by itself - no need to jazz it up, it is delicious on its own.
If you are in Detroit and looking for somewhere delicious to eat, DEFINITELY try Slows. You won't be disappointed. We went twice during our trip!
