SLOWS BAR BQ opened on a mostly-abandoned block at the corner of Michigan and 14th in Detroit in September 2005 with a meticulously designed interior paired with a gourmet spin on barbecue cooked fresh every day, a love of craft beer and a dedication to community. Over the next few years, SLOWS became a destination restaurant, featured on cable TV shows & in numerous national & local publications.

Slows Corktown reopened Thursday 9/17. We’ll be open Thu - Sun 12pm-9pm. We’ll add more days and hours as demand dictates. We take safety seriously. We’re doing daily staff temperature checks, masking and practicing social distancing. We’ve deep-cleaned our HVAC and added UV filters for added protection. We’ve reduced our seating capacity in compliance with state regulations.

We’ll ask a few things of our guests. Masks are required except for when seated at a table. We’re encouraging reservations. Walk-in parties will be sat when tables are available. We cannot seat incomplete parties. Lastly, if you or someone in your party feels ill, we ask that you reschedule your reservation.

We can't wait to see you!!
