Went to Slow's in Detroit today for the first time. It's near Corktown (old Tiger stadium). Anyhow, I came away very impressed. I had the pulled pork plate with a side of sweet potato mash, baked beans, and I tried the black eyed peas and mac & cheese. I think the food was $10.95. Plus, their beer menu was outstanding with good, friendly service. They were happy to allow tastings of the draft beer. (Beers like Anchor Steam and Ommegang were $4 a pint!!)
The interior is minimal and hip...as is a lot of the crowd (hip, I mean). But...the food is excellent. I have a hard time finding good bbq north of the Mason-Dixon line, but this was a winner.
It gets a good crowd, so be prepared for some wait time at the bar.
