Holy smoked barbecue is the place to eat at Angel Fire. The Hail's prepare wonderful food in large enough portions to satisfy even the hearty appetite. The sides are very tasty and the device is second to none. We wish we had eaten here earlier in the week so we could have enjoyed it a few times.

Wasnt as good as before. Sausage plate was barely warm and not much flavor. Beans needed cooking longer as were still on the hard side. Brisket plate was tender but again not much flavor or bbq taste and wasnt very warm. Appears both needed more time in the pit. Be nice to get real ice tea instead of the premix... More

The owners are fun to talk to and they are from Texas. This is really interesting BBQ and if you like taste and a kick of spice, then you're mouth will certainly start watering for a taste of Hail's Holy Smoke BBQ. Pulled pork sandwiches never tasted this good. I enjoyed the classic Texas BBQ Beef Brisket with a dose... More

We thank you for taking the time to give us a review! John is the Texan, and does an awesome job as the pit master/smoke master! He also is the one who makes the traditional sweet Texas sauce- Wendy is the New Mexican, and adds green chile to EVERTHING, and tries to add some heat to everything as well- we... More

Having exhausted all the other eating choices, I agreed too BBQ, not usually something I choose. Thank goodness I did, it was outstanding.

I am a Texan and I'm pretty picky about BBQ but this place was very good. I especially liked the "bubba burrito" that included brisket and hatch green chilies. This place is definitely worth a try. It does get crowded during peak times so the earlier you can get there, the better.

Thank you for giving us a review! We are glad that during the craziness of spring break in the mountains, you gave us a visit and everything was made for a good experience. The Bubba Burrito is a favorite, for sure! We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Angel Fire. More

This is one the the best restaurants in Angel Fire by far. The food and homemade desserts are amazing.... You will not be disappointed. The owners, John and Wendy are so wonderful and make you feel so welcomed.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review! All of our food/desserts are homemade, except the pecan pie( have you ever tried to bake a pecan pie at 9000m feet?). We have a sign hanging in the front entrance that says enter as strangers leave as friends" and THAT is our goal! More
