Finding a spot for lunch in downtown Ann Arbor can be tricky on a game day, even if the game isn’t until much later in the night. Our group of four adults and four kids ended up at Blue Tractor BBQ & Brewery the third or fourth place we tried and the only one that could seat us right away.


We nearly walked past the unassuming building on Washington Street, and walking through the front door you would have no idea just how large the dining space is. I sampled a couple of beers during our visit, with the Bumper Crop IPA being my favorite.


Though BBQ is the specialty, there are plenty of items on the menu for every palate. The kids menu included a burger with a blend of ground chuck and beef brisket ($5.95) along with chicken tenders, grilled cheese, and mac & cheese.

One look at the menu and I knew I had to try the bar-be-cue-ban sandwich with pulled pork, Swiss cheese, bacon, jalapeno chips, and mustard aioli on a griddled roll with house-made pickles and bbq potato chips ($10). The pork was nice and smoky and a good base for the rest of the sandwich. Jalapeno chips kicked up the flavor quite a bit and were an interesting choice for the sandwich. Overall the food was good, the service was quick, and everyone seemed to be pleased.
