Slows Bar Bq in Pontiac is now open! Located at 8 N Saginaw St in downtown Pontiac, our first Oakland County location neighbors the recently-renovated Flagstar Strand Theatre for the Performing Arts.

The menu will be instantly familiar to Slows fans. All of the core favorites are available. Our chef, Ryan Esker, and his team will feature specials and his spin on our barbecue from time to time.

As for the bar, General Manager Rob Stone has compiled a fantastic cocktail list full of classics and his own creations. Beer buyer Andy Wainio curates a rotating 20 tap list of incredible drafts complemented by an amazing bottle and can list.

Slows Pontiac looks and feels like its Corktown predecessor, but with neighborhood accents. Pontiac Central High School provided bar tops, drawer facings, the gym floor and even the scoreboard from the gym, all integrated into the restaurant dining room.
