Located on Michigan Ave. in Detroit’s Cork town, Slows Bar BQ has been a local (and non local) favorite for years. I’ve been there many times, but I decided to feature my absolute favorites off the menu. It was hard to choose, but I managed. See for yourself!
Brisket Enchilada: Chopped brisket and smoky gouda in corn tortillas topped with cheddar and Spicy Sauce. Cheesy, spicy, crunchy, and smoky.
The Reason: Pork butt, smoked slow and pulled, bathed in sauce and topped with our signature coleslaw and dill pickle strips. This sandwich was too huge to bite into, so after taking half of the pork butt off to save for later, I still had left a mouth watering BBQ sandwich. My favorite signature sauce is the Apple BBQ (sweet and tangy) so I added a dollop to each bite. The pork was moist, and the coleslaw and pickles added creaminess and crunch to the rich pig. The only thing I didn’t like was that the bottom bun was so soggy that juice seeped out with every bite. It was like I was ringing out a sponge with my teeth.
Triple Threat Pork: Featured on Food Network’s Diner’s, Drive In’s, and Dive’s. Apple wood bacon, pulled pork and ham stacked high and mighty. If you’re looking for a salty tower of meat, this sandwich is for you! Huge, delicious and perfect for any carnivore.
Mac and Cheese: Melty, crispy top layer of cheese blankets rich creamy, shells of delicious goodness. One of the best Mac and Cheese sides I’ve ever had!
Sweet Potato Mash: Slightly sweet smashed potato. I love how this side isn’t whipped to death, leaving it with some texture.
If you haven’t been to Slow’s, go there now! If you have, go back! They recently expanded and opened a second dining room. Check out the full bar with a huge list of locally brewed beers. They also have a vegan friendly menu, which is normally unheard of in a BBQ place. There’s always events going on and they will cater your next event. Visit Slows To Go with three new locations inside Ford Field and a food truck located @ Campus Martius for lunch.
