When a Blues band starts tuning up during your meal it's going to be a great afternoon. Awesome food and wonderful vibes.

This was the most rude person I have ever talked to in my life. I asked to talked to the manager and... More

Stopped for a quick BBQ hit on our way to Texas. This place is all about the BBQ because the ambiance is not what you'll get. Great to sit on the patio and soak up some sun. Ordered the burnt ends as always. You order by 1/4 lb increments. 1/2 lb with slaw and fries will hold you for the... More

I went to Winslow's for lunch while visiting the City Market. I've never been, so decided it was time to check it out. The atmosphere was pretty typical for a bbq place, the service was quick and the servers were friendly. I ordered the Burnt End sandwich, along with two sides. I really liked the fries but found the bbq... More

This was our first BBQ spot and as it was a great sandwhich, we found some great local spots that topped this place. The fries were super tasty!

Super location just off the trolley line. Nice outdoor patio. Barbecue was strikingly average. Brisket was a little dry. Pulled pork sandwich was better. Their house specialty was greasy and like a sloppy Joe with a mixture of meats. The fried pickles were very good and the server was great.

Four of us ate here last weekend as part of our visit to the City Market. I hadn't been to Winslow's for over 20 years, though it still pretty much looks and feels the same. I wanted to try the wings since they used to be the whole reason to come to Winslow's. Back in the day the wings were... More
