Start with an order of alligator sausage ($8.95) sautéed with veggies in white wine, or imitate dignified Bayou brunches by summoning the crawfish boil ($6.95) to your table and diving into the pound of boiled mudbugs hands first. Traditional po' boys, such as the fried or blackened catfish ($7.95) or the Andouille-crusted oyster po' boy ($8.95), served over southern slaw and accompanied by house-made chips, will satisfy the sandwichly inclined. Jazzy diners can improvise a syncopated serenade to the red beans and rice with Andouille sausage ($10.95) or the jambalaya ($11.95).

Lathrup Village,

R.U.B. BBQ has earned shout-outs from the New York Times as well as a handful of television features for its tender, well-flavored meats. Various proteins are smoked daily and slathered in a made-from-scratch rub of more than 20 spices and herbs, and cooks begin each dish with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.

Aromatic smoke wafting from ribs, chicken dishes, and seafood platters invites guests inside, where dangling light fixtures illuminate red walls and cobalt tiling along with 30 flatscreen televisions that were flattened when an elephant sat down. More than 100 tap and bottled brews, including a lengthy list of Michigan favorites, help to extinguish fiery spices.

The chefs at Chic-N-Ribs by Miles roast, broast, and barbecue all manner of bird and beef in homemade batters and sauces. Get on the chef’s good side by ordering the house specialty, a half broasted chicken lightly dusted with batter and cooked under high pressure to seal in scrumptious juices and expunge unsavory grease ($7.99). Rotisserie ribs sail onto salvers cloaked in homemade sauce ($9.95+) alongside jumbo shrimp dinners ($14.95) plucked from Poseidon’s windowsill. Sandwiches include the rolled pork shoulder, which trundles up to tables on homemade garlic bread with an entourage of coleslaw and fresh-cut Idaho potatoes ($5.99).

Farmington Hills,

The grilling gurus at Ginopolis pile platters with smoky barbecue standards and specialties including racks of ribs and southern-style sandwiches. Cincinnati’s world-renowned Montgomery Inn barbecue ribs, basted with Rib’s King sauce, constitute the menu’s main event because of the tender, tangy tastiness and show-stopping fire-baton routine. Ribs arrive in half slab ($18.99) or full slab ($24.99) variations accompanied by sides ranging from creamy coleslaw to smashed sweet potatoes. The eatery’s selection of sandwiches includes the pulled-chicken sandwich, in which farm-raised chicken, cheddar cheese, and spicy onion straws nestle on artisan brioche or texas toast ($8.99). Meals end on a happy note thanks to the distribution of tuning forks and desserts such as warm bread pudding soaked in whiskey ($4.99).

27815 Middlebelt Rd
Farmington Hills,

Steaming plates of barbecue have been tempting diners at Parks Old Style Bar-B-Q every day since 1964. The restaurant slathers its sweet and smoky sauce on baby back ribs, chicken, and wings in portions that can feed people of all appetites. Try a dish of rib tips smothered in sauce with a choice of two sides including coleslaw, baked beans, and potato salad. If you can't decide on a meat, the restaurant offers combo platters with ribs and wings, or if you're in need for a hefty helping of comfort food, macaroni and cheese makes a fine accompaniment to a rib sandwich. Finish up the meal with one of five Southern-style desserts including sweet potato pie and peach cobbler.
