My husband has worked in Durango for the past almost 18 months and Serious Texas Barbecue quickly became one of our favorite places to eat! We've eaten here many times and a lot of times the ribs are sold out before we get there, which is always so heartbreaking:-( We went recently on a Monday evening when they have "buck-a-bone"...

A little pricy for "wait on yourself". Didn't think it was as good as Kansas City BBQ. What they called a "local favorite", the bbq taco, was overstuffed and very difficult to eat.

Right across the Super 8, excellent place to experience some real Texas B-B-Q. Crowded and noisy, but that also made the place interesting.

Always good ..... Always a line....but worth the the extra mile to overlook the river with an ice cold Lone Star! 1/2 LB brisket with a side of slaw....did I mention the view and Lone Star. And next to the Harley Davidson dealer if you need some gear on your way to Telluride.

Texas Taco is worth shipping, cherry chipotle sauce is phenomenal. Overall a great barbeque experience in Colorado. I have sent many folk there and have yet to hear a complaint, but there is a rumor that I don't listen that well,so.... But seriously this place is great. I was in Durango at one point fr three nights and ate there... More

Poor food at best but the staff was friendly. I am a mature native Texan that appreciates & recognizes good BBQ and have had some great BBQ in lots of places all over Texas as well as cook it myself on my own smoker trailer. This place would not survive in Texas. In Texas the standards are brisket, ribs, chicken... More

Durango's most overrated BBQ. I have had this several times. The BBQ always seems dry and I burp the flavors for a couple hours afterward. Won't go back.

Being from North Florida and used to being waited on at the table, the serving format was a bit different. Not used to ordering meat and separate sides at the counter. After the courteous staff assisted us on how to order we enjoyed a great meal. I got the sausage sandwich and my wife got the beef brisket. The food... More
