Serious Texas Bar-B-Q was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel (Hampton Inn). Being a skeptic, I wondered if they get kick backs to recommend places, so I looked it up. Great reviews, and it's just a few doors down from the hotel so we walked down. Yum! What a great place. We were there on taco night, so... More

This was my second visit to this establishment and The food is good, but this time i was there the food was a bit dry and over cooked. It still tasted great, but if you shouldn't need to add a lot of BBQ sauce. I will visit the establishment again in hopes that this was a one time incident, but... More

If I could eat a texas taco every day without gaining a hundred pounds, I absolutely would. I love it! The smoked turkey is also fabulous. Actually, come to think of it, I've never had anything that I didn't like from Serious. The service is always friendly, and the portions are more than generous. Thanks for the fantastic food! Yum

The food had just the right amount of smoke flavor and the BBQ sauce was great! They can bring their food to Louisiana anytime!

Ribs were good, as was the pulled pork, but average. BBQ sauce was watered down, which I don't like, needed a thicker sauce for pulled pork.

I am a big fan of BBQ, and must say that Serious Texas BBQ lives up to its name. Having lived in Austin, Texas for awhile I can attest to this bring the real deal. From the decor to the troughs of beer and drinks to the outstanding BBQ, Serious Texas BBQ does not disappoint. I most recently visited with... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not busy at all. We ordered brisket, turkey, pulled pork, pork ribs and the stuffed potato. We totally loved the pork ribs and had to order another half rack! The meats were very moist and great flavor, not too strong like some bbq places.

My husband and I were lucky to get the last rack of ribs when we arrived just after 7pm. It was worth it! Good wood smoke flavor, tender, fall off the bone ribs. Classic Texas BBQ atmosphere, great pics on the walls, extra BBQ sauce and a roll of paper towels on each table. Good stuff!

The owners are obviously from Texas. They are located right on the river. Their sliced brisket and pork ribs are excellent. The potatoe salad is mustard base, not my favorite but my better half likes it. If in Durango and not hungry at the time we will pick some up and take it back to Pogosa Springs. At peak times...
