      Elyssa has answered this question correctly. http://slowsbarbq.com/

      If you're wanting some sort of upscalish soulfood joint, check out Beans and Cornbread as well (It's in Southfield, so a bit of a drive from down town, but their food is good). http://www.beanscornbread.com/

      I'd personally recommend Slows though.


    2. Slow's is good, but it gets packed. Which museums? Are you going to the Henry Ford?

      1. Slows has good BBQ, but the waitstaff service can be utterly abysmal.

        My favorite oul food restaurant (w/decent BBQ) is Beans & Cornbread. Good food, good
        service, good prices.

        Beans & Cornbread
        29508 Northwestern Hwy, Southfield, MI 48034

          Both are good. Slows BBQ is superior, but allow time. If it were me, I'd go to Slows at an off-peak hour.

            Check out Beans and Cornbread (www.beanscornbread) in Southfield... Great photos and food!
