Very good. Great staff

The food was great, the staff outstanding and you can't beat the price. Get there early or you may have to wait a few, as they get busy. But the wait is minimal, as the service is very fast. Our first time here and we will be back.

It's just average BBQ, not the good Texas BBQ I used to get in Texas when we lived there. It is fast service though.

Given the testimonials inside, and the recommendation from our hotel, we were really expecting a meat-fest when we came here. Sadly, we were very much let down. We ordered a large platter for two which included a sampling of several types of meat. The turkey and sausage were quite succulent and tasty but for the most part, the rest were... More

On a recommendation from a stranger I tried this place. Being from Texas I do know Bar B Que and Mexican food. I ordered a rack of ribs and two sides.....one potatoe salad, and the other Cole slaw and took the order back to the motel.

I've become addicted to their cherry chipolte salsa. I love the pulled pork sandwich. I have a habit of taking home the sausage, turkey, brisket and ribs too. Food for the entire week. My only negative comment is they've stopped giving out dog scraps. Something my dogs looked forward to after a hike.

Wow what can I say about the food and location of this place. You don't expect much w/a tin looking building but the patio in the back is beautiful overlooking the river. Sometimes they have entertainment outside when its warm. Food is to die for. Must visit place. Can't say enough.

The Texas tacos are outstanding. Would go back for those for sure. I love their outdoor seating as well.

Tasty brisket and pulled pork, served in a fun space. A bit overpriced IMO for the portion sizes. No kids' meals but kid-friendly. Convenient location coming back from skiing.
