Beer is good and the barbecue is solid. The only time i've been there the drinks took a very long time to come and they brought me the check right at the end even though I wanted another beer... I kind of felt like I was being shooed away. So I only tried one of their beers, but it was good.

This place Was not good. The service was very bad they had a new girl (it was her first day serving) with a table of 20 trying to help me and another table. And when I tried to help her by switching to another waiter and another waitress was very rude and nasty about it because, I was waiting ten minutes for a drink and when I got it, it was the wrong drink. I was just trying to loose the load for the girl. I was very upset. Not to mention my food was cold and had nothing on it. I was just trying to help but yet turned around and talked down to. And I still paid for my food and left a tip. Without them asking. I felt like the guy who helped us deserved it.

Had a wonderful first time experience here for lunch. Wonderful menu for carnivores (obviously). Ordered the beef brisket sandwich. Good smoke flavor, I've had better. I ended up splitting the sandwich in half to enjoy the wonderful sauces that are available. My waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. I will be returning to enjoy other items from the menu.

Michigan bbq places are catching up. I've been to bbq in texas and tennessee. ... the bbq I had there wasnt as good as places like lockhardt s in royal oak or the blue tracktor. Blue tracktor wins for my fave ribs in michigan. Lockhardt s has a better brisket. I enjoyed the food here. The girl that waited on me wad kinda so so. . But the food was money. Anyone who claims only good bbq comes from the south is pretentious... Try this place out. Get the 3 meat combo and some sliders. You'll be good to go

A group of friends and I recently ate at Blue Tractor on a Tuesday evening. I accidentally left a very expensive pair of Ray Ban sunglasses that night. The next afternoon when Blue Tractor opened, I called and asked about the sunglasses. The lady that answered confirmed that the glasses were there, so I gave her my name and she said I could pick them up whenever they were open. Since I live about an hour away and work full time, I had to wait until the weekend to make the trek to Ann Arbor to pick up my glasses. However, when I arrived the sunglasses were nowhere to be found. I left my phone number and address in case they turned up, but after a week I still hadn't heard anything. I called the following Saturday as soon as they opened. A woman answered the phone and asked if I could hold while she checked for them. When somebody returned to answer it was the manager. I told him the situation in a respectful, yet concerned tone. He became extremely hostile and rude, and completely belittled the situation. Instead of assisting me in any helpful way, or even apologizing for his staff losing my sunglasses that they promised to keep, he sarcastically offered a $10 gift card in exchange for the $300 sunglasses. He didn't even put in the small effort that it takes to find out who was working the day that we were told they would hold our sunglasses to ask the lady what she had done with them. This customer service was beyond rude and distasteful. My friends and I will definitely not being going here again.

Stunningly obvious that they couldn't care less about their food. Better BBQ and sides can be found at most airports.

I normally don't give BBQ joints 5 stars outside of key BBQ zones like Memphis, Texas, etc....but, this by far is my fav BBQ outside of Those zones. They have excellent sauces from all regions (6 of them) the purple being my favorite! Their ribs aren't great don't get those but my favs are the pulled pork nachos! Total share dish! The Carolina pulled pork with cheddar Grits and Brussels are what dreams are made of! Even since giving up meet I will be back to have that when in town. Their carnivore burger is out of this world so If you like fat burgers with mad meats on them here u go! Fried jalapeños and all! Their beer selection is always on point and their bartenders are great! Before I moved to San Diego one of the guys said his dad used to live in the community I was moving to...OB. Few places I love more than my home state the mitten but my new home OB. I hope he still there so I can tell him how cool it's been since we moved but, how much we miss the Blue Tractor ! See u guys in May!

I went with a group of 10 people... I haven't seen so much food left uneaten in a long long time. The best opinion I heard was that "the burger was... Ok". Personally, I couldn't stomach more than 10 bites of the pulled pork... And I was plenty hungry! The meat was extremely dry and had no flavour to speak of. Pulled pork is meant to be cooked in its sauce... That clearly didn't happen here.
