First pass was good but not great

Stopped by the other ay while in town. I tried the catfish lunch. It was very good - huge portions of both the catfish, fries and other additions. I didn't think the catfish was a standout, however if I doused it in BBQ sauce it came alive. I have not yet tried any of the more traditional BBQ... read more

We were here a few times last summer and the food, service and price are still great! My husband said "it's a good thing this place isn't near were we live !" We shared a ribeye and full slab. Plenty for the 2 of us but we're not big eaters. Great sides and blue moon on tap. 60.00 including tip!... More

We enjoyed our experience here a lot. The food was delicious and there was a LOT of it. Being from Texas it was nice to sit outside in the summer and enjoy some BBQ. It is not the same as Texas BBQ, but nothing really is. Our family of four was well fed for a good price. We sampled everything... More

Gosh, for Aspen it's super cheap. The food was ok and the portions large. If you go there, the ribs are clearly the show. The pulled pork and brisket were bland.

We enjoyed a short rib plate and a barbequed chicken sandwich and ice cream. It's in downtown Aspen within walking distance of hotels and several of the Aspen Summer Music Festival venues.

We used to live in town, so when we come back to visit, this is always a must stop breakfast for us! Favorites: the plate sized pancake or the biscuits and gravy!

We are from Denver and have eaten at the one in Parker so we knew it would be good. We weren't disappointed....other than they were out of onion rings but the sweet potato tater tots made up for that. The pork was good and my husband had the ribs which fell off the bone. It's worth checking out. The service... More

We stumbled across this retaurant and just took a chance. We were very hungry and they got off to a slow start because we stood in the doorway quite a few minutes with no one even acknowledging us. Finally, someone came to seat us and they recovered quickly. Friendly wait staff great food - and for Aspen extremely well priced.... More

The menu is very wide, the quality of the food is so great if you like bbq, the waiters always looking to satisfy the client and the place is well located and clean. The only thing, only one bathroom per genre.
