The food was the best part!!! It was cooked so well and it made my night! The service was very good and the wait was under 20 minutes and it was the night of the auto show and most places would have over an hour wait but not Red Smoke!!

We eat at Red Smoke at least once every time we visit family in Detroit - which is pretty regularly. This restaurant is so much more than BBQ. The chicken is delicious, the sides are absolutely amazing. If you go try the yams, the mac and cheese and the green beans with fried leeks - I take that back -... More

Great southern BBQ. Nice, casual atmosphere. In the main area of Greektown. Highly recommended if you're looking for great southern BBQ.

Nice smoke on the ribs, not overpowering. Meaty & well cooked with variety of house made sauces to choose from. Collard Greens were excellent and the Mac & Cheese and other sides were quite tasty. Definitely on tap for a return visit!

This very casual, busy restaurant is in the heart of Greektown in Detroit! The food is very good, but a little on the pricey side for the portion sizes. I like that you get a variety of BBQ sauces on every table to try on your meats. No dessert offered on menu but encouraged to go two doors down to... More

We had dinner here and the best part was trying all the different sauces on the BBQ chicken. They had 5 different flavors from honey sweet to chipotle spicy. The service was friendly, the restaurant decor was casual (as expected from a BBQ spot) and the jalapeno cornbread muffins are a MUST!

Thank Julie F
