Slows opened in Corktown in 2005, opposite the iconic and abandoned Michigan Central Station, and in the time since has become one of the city’s new restaurant forefathers and helped turned Detroit into the food destination it is today. They serve all of the barbecue hits, plus a few local items like The Lafayette - a pulled pork sandwich with mustard BBQ sauce, onion, and cheddar. These days, there are better meals you can have in Detroit (and there are a few Slows locations around the city and state), but this still remains a destination spot.
