Excellent BBQ

This place may be small but the food was excellent. The ribs were some of the best I've had and fell off the bone. Great flavor with just the right amount of sauce. We also had the BBQ nachos. Most of the time the chips are soggy by the time you're half done. Chips were crisp till the end and... read more

My husband and I stopped here while in Canon City because of all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and this place exceeded our expectations! We both got the BBQ pulled pork sandwhich and realized next time we might split it - the meat is a very generous amount which no one can complain about! Also, the fries are out... More

This is a very small family owned business. Not many tables to eat at but I would eat this food standing outside the building if necessary.. BBQ pork, yum, yum. A large variety of BBQ meats are offered and the price is right for lunch or dinner.

Went there on a Saturday night to get dinner. When we pulled up there was a gentleman out back smoking. When we went inside the same guy came in to take our order, on his was to the counter he flipped some stuff on the grill. Mind you, never washing his hands! Then another guy came up from the kitchen... More

I enjoy their food and think it's better than other BBQ places in the area, however, I can't give a better review because they are always out of something so I'm left settling for something else on their menu. Also, several times I've been there for lunch, the strong smell of marijuana coming from the back cooking area permeates the... More

we thought both the brisket and spare ribs were excellent. Portions were huge, next time we will order a 2 meat dinner and split it between us. My only complaint was we would have liked honey with the corn bread and the music was too loud. Come in early as they ran out of brisket at 5:45 pm. The parking... More

I would call myself a BBQ expert and make it my hobby to check out great BBQ's when I travel. I have eaten at former President Clinton's favorite place in Oklahoma and I have to say that Chicago Bob's beats them easily!! These guys have great food! Large portions! Wonderful owners! and great Staff!! Don't be fooled by the small... More

This place is consistently great! Get there early before they run out of delicious BBQ. The cook has some grills and smokers in the back yard. The music is supplied by the hostesses' iPod, and is super. Great sides.

I hate reviewing local restaurants because I feel like I am putting down my own community when the review is going to be bad. We have eaten at Chicago Bob's about a half dozen times since they have been open and think the BBQ is pretty good. What makes this place suffer is the service and organization. Twice in the...
