Our kids (18, 21) insist we eat there when we are in town. We ended up eating there twice this vacation. Everything was great except for the cheesy potatoes. They were served not hot. My children thought they were okay. I did not like them. The service was great as usual. A change of taste from the sauce we are... More

I visited Serious Texas Bar-B-Q in Durango. As a business traveler it’s nice to have a good place to eat. And for Durango there prices are good. Most of their other place I have tried in Durango are overpriced. I had the sliced beef and it was okay. A little dry this time. I should have stuck to the ribs,... More

The pork sandwich with the cherry chipotle chutney and BBQ sauce is the bomb. My daughter loved her Texas taco with pulled pork, cheesy potatoes and jalapenos in a warm tortilla.

We went here based on the recommendation of our raft trip guide. It is a very casual place you can eat inside or out and have a beer with your meal. You order at the window and seat yourself. The ribs were amazing I really enjoyed the smoky flavor and the sauce at the table was really good. We only... More

Good barbecue, with a unique sauce available. Very good food and a serious Texas atmosphere. Not very expensive.

Being from Texas, we know our BBQ and might be a little more critical than the average customer:) Very impressive ribs..bigger and meatier than the average BBQ joint! Great brisket and sausage too. The sides were amazing..,especially the beans! An extra bonus at this location is the outside patio and amazing view of the Animas River....beautiful and peaceful setting.

We decided to try Serious Texas BBQ while visiting Durango recently, and found it to be very, very good bbq. The service not so much (you queue up in a long line and order at a window), and the atmosphere not so much (extremely casual and loud).

Great ribs and pulled pork with a wonderful dry rub. Sauces on the side (like it should be). Patio dining available.
