Slow's is a place that you wouldn't just happen to find in your wanderings. It's not in a trendy neighborhood lined with sidewalk cafes and art galleries. It's on Michigan Ave almost in the shadow of the old train station.

The name is a statement of how food should be. The essence of Barbecue is time. It can't be hurried. Low & slow is the mantra.

The menu is a combination of barbeque & southern comfort foods with a few twists. For starters we had wings. We put their apple barbeque sauce on the chicken with great results. For the main meal, I chose thier version of surf & turf: blackened (or fried) catfish, brisket, and jambalaya. My two sides were macaroni & cheese and corn bread. The fish, jambalaya and corn bread were good, but the brisket and macaroni were among the best I've ever had. The brisket was fork tender, juicy and delicious. Add a little spicy sauce, and it was killer. The mac was creamy with a nice crust of cheese on top.

Slow's beer menu was pretty darn good as well. They showcase Michigan breweries with selections from Short's, Bell, Founders, Jolly Pumpkin and Motor City, but also carry some beers from Rogue, Stone, Unibrou and Great Lakes to name a few. There are beer menus on the table, which always helps make choosing easier.

Service was solid. Our server wasn't a full on beer geek, but knew the taplist and asked others to get answers she didn't know.
