Slows Bar BQ is no stranger to press. This beloved BBQ joint has appeared on multiple Travel Channel shows, including Man v. Food and Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America. One of the most popular menu items at Slows is their "Yardbird", a sandwich consisting of pulled chicken breast marinated in mustard, served with mushrooms, cheddar and applewood bacon served inside of a poppy-seed bun. Adam Richman selected this sandwich to compete in his Best Sandwich in America show where it ranked as the best sandwich in the Great Lakes but ultimately finished second overall in the inaugural season of the show. Another notable sandwich at Slows Bar BQ is their "Triple Threat Pork" sandwich. This whopping 1-pound sandwich is made with applewood-smoked bacon, pulled pork and grilled ham served on a poppy-seed bun. Staying away from their sandwiches, the Texas Style Beef Brisket is a must try. This certified angus beef brisket is dry rubbed and smoked heavy before being sliced thin to order.
