You know the mac and cheese is good if it can stand proud as an entrée—with two sides of its own. Slows, an authentic barbecue joint located across the street from the abandoned Michigan Central Station, is playing a key role in inner-city Detroit’s rejuvenation. Just a year after opening in 2005, the restaurant did a whopping $1.8 million in sales, and it has since inspired a wave of new barbecue spots throughout the city (not to mention a nearby artisanal pizza shop).Recommended for:Foodies

On the edge of Corktown in Detroit, Slows has become a must visit restaurant! Featured on the Food Network, it offers the best American BBQ food in Detroit. Must be a meat lover, if so, the options are overwhelming. Try the Mac n Cheese! Theres an outdoor patio for the summer time and the interior is all wood, love the vibe here!!

Slows led Corktown's resurgence and remains the neighborhood hot spot. Carnivores carve into Southern-style brisket and pulled pork. Vegetarians have options from okra fritters to a faux-chicken sandwich. There's a great selection of local brews on tap.Recommended for:Vegetarian

This is a great BBQ place! They make comfort food well. There are several sauces to try from, all have a unique taste and worth checking out. Definitely make a reservation or come during an off-peak period because the wait is really long at this place. Definitely do Slows to Go to be introduced to Slows in general, and that is pretty quick service, you get your food within 30 mins. Everything is made to order so the food is fresh and flavorful!
