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.

Awful food. Not much bvq available in this area and this restaurant could do much better if they really knew how to make bbq.

Would have eaten here 3 times but they closed early on New Year's Eve! The BBQ is excellent, beer is cold and where else can you get authentic Texas BBQ in Colorado? :-) Our family of 4 ate here for under $50 and that included beer and dessert. A definite must try if you are in the area!

We love this place! It has consistently great BBQ and the staff are always friendly. The Texas taco is our favorite menu item. Good prices, great food.

Being from Texas, we are somewhat picky about barbeque but based on the motel's recommendation, we decided to try this place. You order your food at the counter and we made sure to let them know that we were from Texas and jokingly suggested we would judge whether their product was worthy of the name "Serious Texas Barbeque". We chatted... More

We come to Durango 3-4 times a year. It is one of our favorite places. Love there ribs, sandwiches and cheesy potatoes. It is a must go if you are in Durango.

Wasn't bad but the after effects are awful. To be honest, I have had better BBQ in Tulsa.The food was ok at best. Staff friendly but there is NO personal service at all. You order your food, sit down and everything is up to you at that point. It was a little pricey for what you get but is was... More

Had the pulled pork sandwich. They load a lot of pork on their sandwiches. Lean and excellent! The sauce was better than I expected. I would have given a excellent rating overall, but they are really limited on their options for sides.

Stopped by this little joint on my way back from Purgatory. It's a neat little restaurant and has some charm to it, I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Even though I enjoyed that, I really enjoyed the food even more! I got a turkey sandwich, one of the best smoked turkey sandwiches I have had. Also, if you have ever been... More
