Do hidden gems exist in Mid-Michigan? (No worthy stops en route up north.)

Bone Daddy's BBQ in Midland, is a excellent BBQ joint.

Tried Magdaleno Italian Restaurant in Lincoln Park, MI tonight...

Guess the secret is starting to get out on this place, no more waking right in on a weekend night. Glad they are starting to get busier even if it means a wait now.You can not find this quality of food at this price point elsewhere. Love this place seeing that it is a 5 minute drive from me down Outer Drive.

Red Rock Barbecue, Ypsilanti

Tried it last weekend, It was just okay. The portion size on the Brisket was pretty small. The prices are pretty high. If you want mac and cheese as a side it is a $1 upcharge. The ribs were overcooked for me, I do not like fall off the bone ribs. I still prefer Slows or Union Woodshop for BBQ.

Coconut cream pie in Detroit ?

When I need to get my pie fix on, Kates Kitchen in Flat Rock is my choice.

It is just okay. More of a fast casual model. I also think it is pretty pricey. The meats can be hit or miss, I have had the ribs and pulled pork that have been good on some days, and pretty bad on others. The Brisket has been tough and chewy every time I have ordered it. The sides are nothing special, and I do not care for the BBQ sauces that much. Food is subjective, so give them a try when it opens. I am a big BBQ fan, and have been to all the major BBQ places in the Tri-County area.

Smokey Rhodes BBQ, Flat Rock, MI REVIEW

Went to the newly opened Smokey Rhodes BBQ in Flat Rock today for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised.They opened in a old coney location at Telegraph and Huron River Drive. Very small place that probally seats 25 -30 people that was nicely decorated, it had that up north wood log cabin feel to it. I had a slab of the St. Louis spare ribs, and the wife had the BBQ chicken. Both of the the meat selections were very good. The wife enjoyed the chicken because they have a mild smoke flavor to the meat. I could not get her to go to Slows with me, because she thought the smoke flavor overpowered the meat. The ribs were also very good with a nice smoke ring. The meals come with Corn Bread made from Jiffy Mix that is very good, the only knock on the corn bread is that I like my corn bread hot out of the oven, this corn bread was fresh ,just not hot. You also get to pick 2 sides. I had the Cole Slaw that was good and the Mac and Cheese. If you like the mac and cheese at Slows you will probally be dissapointed here. It is not bad, It is not baked and as complex as the mac at Slows. My wife actually prefers the mac here at Smokey Rhodes over Slows, but then again she prefers Kraft out of the box over Slows.At this time they have only one BBQ Sauce that is very good, but I have gotten used to having multiple sauces to choose from. We decided to get a carry out to take some to my parents to sample and ended up choosing the Pulled Pork/Brisket Combo, WOW talk about a surprise, Both of these meats were great. The brisket is just as good as Slows in my opinion, and I actually think thier pulled pork is a little better than slows. I think I will be back soon, great BBQ and very friendly owners that came out to make sure everything was up to our expectations.

Best Cheese Steak (Philly) in Michigan
