Probably the most publicized restaurant in Detroit is Slows BBQ. Coverage in the New York Times, segments on the Travel Channel, and mentioned in numerous other media outlets have made Slows Detroit’s go to destination for anyone visiting the city.
Sure, the location is cool and the beer list is fantastic, but people travel to Corktown for the food. Check out The Longhorn (by TheHungryDudes). Tender beef brisket, shredded smoked gouda, onion marmalade, and spicy sauce are stacked on Texas toast.
It’s easy to get lost in this sandwich. Each of the flavors intermingle perfectly giving a different taste sensation with each bite. At one moment, smokiness shines through followed by a spicy kick from the sauce then the delicate sweet earthiness of the marmalade.
The Longhorn is a special sandwich.
Restaurant of the Day: Round House BBQ
Seems like a new BBQ joint is opening every week in the metro Detroit area. Round House BBQ is one of the latest to open. Their macaroni and cheese (by TheHungryDudes) harkens back to cafeteria style mac & cheese, but in a good way. Sharp cheese sauce covers soft spiral macaroni – no golden brown crust, but this is a comforting side dish.

Mobile Hungry Dudes: Sausage, egg, and cheese English muffin from T.J.’s Restaurant in Roseville. Not pretty, but so comforting and delicious.
