Slow's has reopened recently for indoor dining at limited capacity (like everywhere else). Their usually vast supply of on tap brews has been for the time being reduced to four. Bizzes are hurting, and it's been a dicey ask to get folks out and about while the virus still flies. Slow's is doing what it can to keep going as safely as guidelines allow: limited seating, distancing, staff in masks, etc.

As a BBQ place, it is disappointing.  Compares to Detroit location in the same way that our Downtown Market compares to Eastern Market.  Not bad, but there are better spots in town.  

But...if you can get them to leave the bacon off of it, the Yardbird's vegetarian version might be the best maybe vegan meal in the city.  I love that sandwich and it makes everything else about the place seem so much better.

Fine for dine in or takeout.  If takeout, be clear full review
