Four of us stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. Very friendly service, fast, and very decent food. I would rate Serious just a notch below Rudy's BBQ. Much the same in atmosphere.

We rented a home in Durango and had this BBQ twice. It was very good with wonderful smokey flavor. The atmosphere is somewhat basic but since we had takeout that was not a problem. The sides were decent but the highlight was the meat.

My husband loves any reason to get a Texas BBQ. I was grossed out by the bathrooms, needs a good scrubbing and maybe a fix of the holes in the walls and some paint would be nice. The food wasn't bad but the brisket was a little dry. But I always worry when the bathrooms are like that. I also... More

I enjoyed the food here, the prices were great compared to the rest of the town. I'll eat here again next time I'm in town.

Whenever we are in the area, I always look forward to eating at the Serious Texas Barbeque. I really love the pulled pork with their BBQ sauce. Simple, but enjoyable atmosphere. Will continue to visit whenever in the area (also located in Farmington NM).

We have been here before, and returned with our grandchildren. As always, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere superb. You can ride bikes to it, since it is on the excellent bicycle trail. My grandson devoured the ribs.

Our gps took us to no where restuarant so looked around, saw BBQ and went for it! Glad we did! Food was very good and I enjoyed the lesson on the different sauces which added to the meal. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the river view. Definately give it a try!

We have one member who is not a BBQ fan, more the chicken nuggets kinda kid. We convinced him to try a taco with pulled pork and cheesy potatoes, he had the rest of the toppings left off, he loved it. The other three of us got the big sampler platter with all the different meats. We especially loved the... More

A group of us, 6 Texans, on a motorcycle through Colorado, stopped at the local Harley Davidson shop in Durango for a part for one of the bikes. I asked one of the employees about a nearby lunch place and he suggested "Serious Texas BBQ", right down the street. I snickered to myself a little as I imagined what would... More

Some of the best barbeque brisket we’ve had outside of Texas; very tender with negligible fat and great flavor. Sandwich was piled high with meat with sauce served on the side. The sauce is too sweet for our tastes but the meat was so good we didn’t mind the sauce being a little sweet. The restaurant is on the 550... More
