Slows BBQ

When we were in the Detroit area enjoying our food tour, we saved quite possibly the best place for last.  (As in, it was soo good I was dreaming about it a week later.. yummmmmm)

Slows was featured on Man vs. Food back in 2009 which first sparked our interest.  It is located in a pretty rough looking neighborhood in Detroit.  The two buildings it took over have been around since the 1800s.  There is a sign out front, but the door can be easily missed as part of the wall, and is part of the charm.

Heck, the bathroom even was pretty cool.  I really liked how they reused a lot of things to make it usable now.

Back to the food.  Sadly, the husband and I got the same thing, with different sides but it was soooooo good.  We both went with the Carolina Pulled Pork (my mouth is watering just remembering it. ahhh.)

Here is a picture of my plate w/the pork and my applesauce!

The husband went with baked beans and Mac & Cheese for his sides and I went with Mac & Cheese and Old Timey Applesauce.. 

The Mac & Cheese was really cheesy and filling and the applesauce had a slight tart taste which was perfect and reminded me of my grandma's homemade applesauce!

We also enjoyed trying all the different sauces.  Trying to go from memory they had an Apple, a spicy jalapeno, North Carolina sauce, a mustard sauce and I can't remember if there were anymore.  But for sure, our favorite was the Apple.  It went really well with our pulled pork.  Oh, and we had so much leftover that we could share another meal the next day.  But we were very glad we had leftovers because it was too good not to have twice!

Slows has an interesting story in its relatively short existence (they've been open since 2005) and I would highly recommend it to anyone who visits the Detroit area.  Especially if you love BBQ!
