Slows Bar Bq opened its first location outside of Detroit August 6th in the state-of-the-art Grand Rapid Downtown Market. The 6,000 sq ft location is set up Market Style, in keeping with the overall theme of the market itself and traditional bbq restaurants. Customers queue up and order all tradtional bbq meats by the ounce, directly from the carver. Don't worry, Slows' famous sandwiches and sides made it West. You can order the Reason, Yardbird, Triple Threat, Mac & Cheese and more. And it wouldn't be Slows without beer. 40 craft beer handles featuring some of the best of the Great Beer State as well as select offerings from around the rest of the United States and beyond.
Communal seating is first-come first-serve. The long tables, benches and four tops were all made in Detroit at Ponyride out of repurposed wood (including some from an old bowling alley).
Slows Grand Rapids is finally open. We're looking forward to being a member of the Westside community for years to come.
