Best Restaurant to Take Out-of-Towners 

Slows Bar BQ

2138 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-962-9828; slowsbarbq.com

This nationally recognized Corktown gem is packed with faithful barbecue fans willing to wait over fancy beer or wine selections for the delicious Carolina-style pulled pork, the sharp and creamy mac-n-cheese, or the flaky catfish. And, perhaps because of its beautifully renovated 1880s building a stone's throw from the majestically vacant Michigan Central Station, our readers judged it the best place to show off metro Detroit to visitors.
