Passing through Detroit Friday. Where should we go for soul food/ bbq , to round out our motown museum tour?

    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.

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

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

          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.

          Cheers
