Slows Bar B Q – Detroit, Michigan

I’ve been dying to go to Slows Bar B Q for almost eight months since I read (and wrote about) the bon appetit – Top 10 New Barbecue Restaurants

Here’s are two great pieces that shed insight into their story:

Their menu is really amazing…and what’s really forward thinking is they feature photos of all their items.

Another really cool thing is the they are working on being more green. Here’s their mantra “Slows Bar BQ strives to be an environmentally friendly restaurant. Much of the design, including tables, trim, and the patio walls were built from reclaimed lumber, salvaged from the very building we chose to rehabilitate and make our home. We aggressively recycle and have continued to expand our green initiatives. With our patio, we added 13 trees and many other plants. We built a public sitting area and bike rack. We water our landscaping with rain collection from the roof of our building and we are using compostable to go containers. As part of our mission to bring sustainable ingredients to your table, our chicken is sourced locally from Miller’s Amish Farm in Northern Indiana. We are also now cooking with Niman Ranch pork and brisket.”

Check out their great write-up on

If you’re flying through Detroit and have a good layover or are going to visit, you have to make this a stop.
