Going for the first time this weekend. Besides eating everything is there anything specific I should get?
Ps-- do they do reservations? Will there be a huge line around 5-6 on Saturday?
It's about time someone created a Slows BBQ thread on here, asking those same exact questions... Thanks, brah...
I believe they do reservations for more than 6. Not sure about the line since they expanded (doubled?) their seating. Ribs and pulled pork are good, mac and cheese is great and their carrot cake is pretty good too.
You serious clark? I seem to remember this exact thread no less than five times before.
Brah! Thanks brah, brah!!!
Triple Threat, The Reason or The Yardbird (personally not a fan, but voted one of the best sandwiches in America). Basically anything pulled. People also seem to love the Mac N Cheese.
Line is hard to say due to recent expansion, but it's typically crowded around that time. Reservations in the past have always been for 6+ only, not sure if that policy has changed.
get the new Nike MSU font: http://tinyurl.com/spartansfont
Everyone will tell you to get the triple threat, I thought the burger was MUCH better. Would go again for that. we also got waffle fries and mac n chz, which were fantastic.
put the mac on the waffle fry and fold it like a taco, holy mischevious badger jesus it was good.
May want to check if they are open. Went to Sugarhouse a couple of weeks ago and Slows was closed for renovations.
You guys ever heard of the Gin Mill? I'm thinking of going there to watch the State game.
It works like this..
Go into slows, get buzzer. Walk two doors down to sugarhouse, sit at bar, order cocktails, be amazed.. Buzzer goes off.. Go to slows.. Brisket plate. Fries with cheese one other side (i like apples). Be amazed again..
Best 1-2 punch in detroit,
It was only closed for about a week after the New Year
No, I was being 100% sarcastic for that exact reason haha.
You forgot the sarcasm symbol brahhhhhh
I know. I just craved the opportunity to quote that line.
I thought they were going to be closed this month for renovations.
I'm pretty sure I said this in the 5 other threads, but if you put your name in you can then go drink at LJ's down the street and they will usually come get you if you ask. Make sure you have cash though because LJ's is cash only.
They were closed starting NYE for about 3 weeks. They've since re-opened.
Get the BBQ beef enchilada appetizer and thank me later!!!!
The Yardbrahd! It's awesome brah!
Going to the MSU hockey game?
It's going to be busier any night something is happening at the Joe than nights when it's empty downtown. Also, when you have an event like MSU-UofM hockey that brings in most of it's audience from outside Detroit (and specifically brings in people that only come downtown a handful of times each year), Slows is busier because everyone wants to try it at least once.
And if the good Lord’s willin’,
I’m a keep on chillin’,
refillin’ and flyin’ high
I am a Slow's fan, but frankly I'm already a bit tired of it already. The lack of actual good sauces keeps me from giving it incredibly high marks.
I doubt he's going to the game if he's planning to be there at 5-6...
give Redsmoke in Greektown a try sometime, their sauces are fantastic
Don't post poop!
I always get the Longhorn, which is great, I have also gotten the catfish once and it was really really good too. Mac n Cheese on the side.
