We would rank this a "must" visit in a trip to Detroit. If you haven't been to Slows it is well worth your trip. It is located on Michigan Ave. just a few blocks west of old Tiger Stadium. Slows is a bar-b-que restaurant and tavern. It is fitting that we start with the food, because that is what attracts the crowd. Everything we have had there is excellent. Our favorite is the pulled pork sandwich they call “The Reason.” It is excellent and good sized. We often split a “Reason” and have a cup of gumbo or a salad as a side and it is more than enough. Last night we tried the green pea and okra appetizer. It was excellent.

Besides the food, they have a large selection of draft and bottled beer and a full bar. The bartenders know their beer and can give you good advice on what you may wish to try. If Nancy's working behind the bar, try one of her Bloody Marys. Excellent!

Slows has become one of our regular stops in Detroit.
