Best Barbecue Restaurant in Oakland County: Zeke's Rock and Roll BBQ

240 W. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-206-7130;

Talk about popular appeal: Not just barbecue, but a lively bar scene, as well as the draw of a "rock 'n' roll" restaurant. It's a combination that does everything but demand you let down your hair and lick your fingers. And, yes the barbecue is quite good too.
