Joe Ann's BBQ

Joe Ann's BBQ has been serving authentic BBQ and soul food in Detroit on a charcoal grill since 1951. Their extensive menu includes several selections of pork, beef, seafood, and chicken and almost a dozen sides, including mac 'n cheese, collard greens, black-eyed peas, and corn muffins. 

Nunn's Bar-B-Que

The first Nunn's Bar-B-Que opened in 1984, but after an unfortunate fire it was rebuilt and reopened in 2006. Nunn's BBQ specializes in down-home ribs, first grilled on a charcoal grill and then smoked for additional flavor. Nunn's has all the authentic BBQ dishes on their menu, but also includes a delectable selection of homemade desserts, including peach cobbler, banana pudding, and sweet potato pie. Call ahead for pick-up or use GrubHub or DoorDash for delivery.
