Texas Taco. 'Nuff said.

One Texas Taco is a very filling meal! Your choice of meat, potatoes, cheese, and other yummy stuff. They offer several flavors (and varying degrees of heat) bbq sauces. Very casual, laid back environment. Their south store offers a drive-thru for convenience. I'm not a huge fan of bbq, but... read more

I am sorry but being raised in Texas and eating BBQ there for just shy of 60 yrs I do not find this to be a Texas style BBQ. One day the food is pretty good, the next day the cut of meat could be very tough and they do not like for you to tell them about it. Others... More

The ribs are supreme and the cheesy potatoes are awesome. I devoured it all! They serve large quantities and we had plenty left over to take to my sister's place.

This is almost as good as Texas without being in Texas. Great food and the brown paper to eat on was great. Very reasonable prices for quality and portions. My wife loved the poorboy. I had a little of everything. very casual, relaxing and kid friendly.

We are from Texas so we just had to stop in and try it. The Texas Taco was awesome, loved it and the cheesy potatoes! A little different than what we are used to but definitely good and worth the stop in. Well priced.

Brought 4 teen boy skiers here for dinner. Great BBQ, reasonably priced, generous portions. Cheesy fries a must. Tacos, brisket, pulled pork.

I eat at serious Texas all the time. Beef brisket-yummy. Texas taco-I'm so full. Pulled pork with cherry chipotle relish--more please. Sausage, ribs, brisket, pulled pork, cheesy potatoes. Everything is so good. It's quick and inexpensive.

I understand that this place is very busy but we chose a Sunday evening and it was very quiet. You get what it writes on the menu board. I wanted just protein and thats exactly what I got. It was tasty and I could add their barbeque sauce. Perfect for me.

At every attraction we visited in Durango, we had little conversations with the people who worked there about where we're from, and just little chit-chat. At least 1 person at every place recommended Serious Texas Barbecue. We decided to eat there for dinner one night to see what all the fuss was about. But. two words: cheesy potatoes. I actually...

We thought we were back home in the great state of Texas. Glad we found this on our ski trip to Durango. We went twice on our trip. Great place to stop on the way back down from the slopes.
