This place is just OK. The service we've had the two times we've eaten here has been excellent (same waiter). The brisket and pulled pork is good but nowhere near what you can get in a few places downtown Detroit if you are willing to make the drive. The pulled chicken I did not like, it just tasted not bad but odd, I can't really explain it. I can't speak to the ribs as I've not tried them. The sauces are good. The sides are the biggest disappointment and need a serious upgrade. The green beans are just bad. The fireroasted corn should be on the cob and a lot better. They need sweet potato fries. The other sides we've tried were just average to a little below. The mother clucker (chicken sandwich) is pretty bland. The kids menu needs better options that kids actually want to eat. The outdoor seating and live music is pretty nice if you get a nice day when they have that going on. Prices are too high for the quality of food you get (the sides). It's not exactly the same food options but you can get a lot better southern meal down the street at Bourbons for a little cheaper and the portions are two meals really. If you stick to the beef/pork and fries and want to enjoy a beer while listening to music then it's worth going.
Our family of four had pulled pork, brisket, ribs, and a burger. I was pretty disappointed in all of the meat. The brisket was almost inedible; chewy and dry. No wonder they serve it with an au jus because otherwise you'd choke on it. My pulled pork was ok but there was aluminum foil mixed in (picture attached). That was a definite turn off. The ribs were overdone. The sides and sauces were fine as was the service. If you know good bbq, you'll want to give this place a pass.
Wow! The food was amazing, and there was a nice drink selection. We were pleasantly surprised and will certainly be going back.
Very cool BBQ restaurant with great food. The chicken gumbo is awesome. Homemade everything, Brisket sandwich was great, as was the carrot cake.
This was a delicious experience. It is one of the better barbecue places that we've been to. We bought the combo platter with three options: the brisket, the half a chicken, and the pulled pork besides we got were waffle fries and sweet mash. This was split between two people and more than we both could eat together. We also got the carrot cake that we've ever had. Carrot cake is one of the most difficult cakes to do well, and by far, this was an 8 out of 10. We will be coming here again. Friendly staff!
Really good food and sauces. Great spot if you don't want to go for a long drive out to the woodshop or slows.
Just had our company Christmas party at Ginopolis Bar-BQ Smokehouse and what a great place! The party room was quite a surprise with a full bar, plenty of seating, and game equipment for the guests to use. The food was fantastic, but the best feature at Ginopolis was the personal service we received from the owners Melissa and Pete, and our waitress Caitlyn. I would definitely recommend Ginopolis Bar-BQ Smokehouse to anyone looking for a private party room. Thank you Melissa and Pete! Sue, Novi Spring Inc.

The brisket was the best! AWESOME! The House, Sweet & Spicy, and Texas sauces were my favorite - very good! The ribs were good. Salad was good. Nice place, good vibe
