Texas Taco!!!

Nice little joint. Connects to a mini golf course. We let the kids go play while the adults enjoyed the outdoor patio. Had the Texas Taco. BBQ Beef, Chessy Potatoes, Onions and Jalapeños. When ordering, I wondered if just one taco would be enough. It was. Others in the family had Pulled Pork... read more

Pulled pork and briscuit sandwiches were so good that my teenage sons made me take them back the next day for breakfast! Authentic and delicious Texas BBQ.

As a Texan living in Colorado, my biggest food challenge is finding good BBQ. I've been in Colorado for a year now and until last week, had not found any BBQ worth feeding to my dogs. While visiting Durango, we stopped in at Serious Texas BBQ because friends told us it was good and they were spot on! The brisket... More

Such a wonderful and fun place to eat! The patio over looks the Animas river and the Barbeque is delicious! This is not a place for vegetarians because it only has cheesy potatoes and the coleslaw is a little spicy but oh so good! We are from Texas and we weren't disappointed! The one thing we thought was weird is... More

Our campsite hosts suggested we go to Serious Texas BBQ for dinner! It was SO good! The brisket is super tender, the ribs were cooked just right and the turkey was tasty. The only thing I didn't particularly like was the coleslaw. It was a little bland; but everything else was fantastic! The atmosphere is super casual, seat yourself after... More

Restaurant is self serve. Very casual. They have daily specials during the week so check on-line or call. Ribs were tender & moist! We all had the rib special so we did not try anything else. BBQ sauce is on the sweeter side. Coleslaw was a little too spicy for me. Cheesy potatoes were good. Lots of BBQ places to... More

I had the taco, which is a meal in itself. My husband had a sandwich. It was good but we're used to NC style BBQ, so this was different for us. It's in a tourist town so price was a little high - but we had coupon from hotel for free drink or chips and they allowed both me and... More

Stopped for lunch, looking for good BBQ. This is the place! Pulled pork sandwich, cheesy potatoes, topped off with a Lone Star! Waylon and Willie drifting thru the air! Didn't want to leave; best lunch and place I've stopped at for a long time. Going to check all locations of this place, make sure if I'm near one, gotta stop.
