Best Bar-b-q ever!!!!!!!!!

Best Bar-b-q ever!!!!!!!!!

.

Let me be 100% honest. The service is slow and terrible because the manager hires on the basis of what girls he likes to look at and he gets away with it because he is the owners nephew. \n\nNO ONE wears gloves or washes their hands and those rib kabobs you all love so much? Poked through with the stick using the same bare dirty hands that write the bills, answer the phones and take orders. \n\nThe sauce is Open Pitt so if you love it so much go the grocery and pick some up it isn't anything special.\n\nEverything except the pizza's and subs are precooked and reheated using the grill or the fryers and some bbq sauce is splattered on top.\n\nYou'd be surprised what else I could remember about this place if I had more than a minute and a half to think about it and believe me you would never eat there again if you REALLY knew what went on and how COMPLETELY UNSANITARY it is in there!

Ribs Ribs and more Ribs are the best fall off the bone with mega flavor, been eating them for over 20 years and keep going back for more. You also gotta try the rib kabobs and fish dinners on Fridays at a special low price.

You gotta get the PU PU Platter which is jumbo shrimp,ribs, spring rolls,onion rings,and a roll. I agree the ribs are great and the rib kabobs are the best. Been eating here for 30 years. The Friday fish fry is one of the best downriver for a super cheap price. Three nice pieces of fish,coleslaw and fries can't be beat.

This place is the best for BBQ anywhere in Metro area.. The guy posting comparing it to southern BBQ is half correct,,nothing beats southern,or Texas CUE.. Ive been eating from Zukins for 30 yrs...The Pit extra well done is awesome..Prices are really good,,,Just wish they would cook the fries a little longer..

I grew up in the downriver area, an while the restaurant is named Zukin's Rib shack, it should be called the Grease Shack. The food is not that tasty or high quality - they do have a large menu and decent prices, but this is not a place I would recommend to a friend for good ribs. If you want good ribs in the Down River area the only place that I know of is Famous Daves.

The fries are always cold. They use Open-Pit and I think the meat quality has gone down. I used to swear by Zukin's, now I don't even bother. The pizza stinks! Could they at least use real cheese?!? I walked in to place an order, waited 15 minutes for it and it was cold. I had to walk three houses away...in the summer and it was cold!

and now still is one of the best. Ribs and chicken are the best in town, but you gotta try the scallops...men, they're good!. But the best of all are the KABOBS! Nobody can resist them. Sorry you can`t eat in there.\r\nThere`s a lot parking, safe place and fast service. If you want my advice, make your order once in there, so you can take your food when still hot...you will not wait over 10 minutes and it worth it!\r\nI would like to know if there`s a e-mail adress of Zukin`s rib shack. If anybody can help me, my e-mail is:\r\ns4w30@yahoo or hotmail

This place is fantastic. It has the most tasty ribs you can probably find in the area. They also serve other things coated with their delicious barbeque sauce. The staff is very friendly and will make you laugh while you wait. You can even order and take it home. try it, its great!!

I mean no disrespect, but Zukin's did not live up to my expectations. Being fairly new to the area I Zukins was recommended to me by several friends for some good 'cue. Unfortunately, many in this area believe that barbecue is grilling something and putting sauce on it. I am a fan of traditional southern bbq (ala memphis, kansas city) and this was not it. The ribs and chicken that I had tasted as if they were pre cooked and slapped on the grill to warm and covered in open pit. I prefer a smokier bbq. My opinion might not be popular in this area but I wasn't impressed.

Some of the best BBQ in the metro Detroit area. The rib and chicken can't be beat. My favorite is called the ""Gizmo"". It's ribs, shrimp (just the right amount of breading), fries and bun. The fries are average and the bun is usualy a brick but so what the main dishes more than make up for it. The portions are good sized and should fill even the hearyest appitites. The price for what you get is very fair. If you live Downriver/SW Detroit and get a craving for BBQ get to Zukin's now! \n\nFYI. This is not a sit-down type BBQ, get your food and go home.

You can't come here without ordering the awesome rib kebabs at this take-out-only barbecue joint. The smoky barbecued chicken, ribs and seafood made with the house-made sauce also keep customers coming back. But pizza and hamburgers and…
