I love brisket, had it since a child. Most restaurants smoke it too dry, but Smoke's might have been the best ever... Moist, delicious, exceptional flavor. And the bun it was served on, just as good... Even my picky 21 year old, gobbled down his pulled port... Cannot recommend it highly enough

This place just doesn't do it for me. I try to eat healthy and not eat sugar but even their salads are marginal at best. However, I do know people who like it.

I have eaten here several times, I can say that I have not had meal here and some were truly exceptional. The ribs are great, St. Louis style (I'm more of a baby back fan), The BBQ platter is fantastic. Always check specials and there are 4 types of Mac and Cheese, all unique. The best part of the experience... More

My husband and I tried three different items on the menu. All three were excellent choices. His brisket was divine and tender! My hubby kept sneaking bites of my chicken bbq salad, as if I didn't notice. :) He also ordered the burnt end macaroni, which had crispy bits of brisket, scallions, tomatoes in the mix. He couldn't decide which... More

Very much enjoyed all the BBQ. Had the 3 meat combo plate with ribs, brisket and sausage. Being from TX we always think our BBQ is best and therefore is the golden standard. But Smoke certainly is up there with the best.

Very, very loud with a harried atmosphere. But the BBQ is as good as the original restaurant in Basalt. The spicy slaw is amazing, and the pulled pork was moist and tasty. Salads were good and large.

Got really lucky and stopped in the new Glenwood Springs location. Loved the contemporary and fun atmosphere. All the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The brisket was amazing and multiple choices of barbq sauces made it tasty. We had the three meat choices and liked them all. A must stop for a fresh barbq experience!

We ate at the new Glenwood Springs location. Best BBQ I think we have ever eaten. Loved the twists and turns to the menu with surprise ingredients tucked in everywhere. Excellent cocktails served while we waited for a table. Who knew mac and cheese with shrimp sausage and bacon would linger in my mind for so long. The only downside... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of having two meals at Smoke Modern BBQ in Glenwood Springs. Our first meal was for lunch and it did not disappoint. It was nice to be able to taste the Applewood and Hickory that they used during their smoking process. It add to the flavor. The second meal that we had was... More
