I'm no BBQ expert. Coming from England, BBQ generally means someone grilling a sausage until its completely burnt then eating it in the garden waiting for rain. This place was top drawer though. We went two nights running and had pulled pork sandwich, Texas taco and a sausage dish, all were excellent. The food with a beer each and a... More

Delicious barbecue and sauce! We ate the pork but saw. Rocket and would go back to try it. It was nice to sit by the window and see the river, too. The sides are huge and pretty good. The addition of some kind of bread and salad would be a plus.

While not much to look at the Bar B Q was great and the Lone Star or Shiner was cold. There are plenty of paper towels to help you not wear your food but it is so good you may have at dab land on your shirt, I did.

When it is real busy in Durango and you are late booking a hotel like we were, you may end up out of town a ways. The choices for food are slim unless you want to drive. This BBQ was close to the Hampton where we stayed and overall the food was okay. Order at the counter, fast processing...typical BBQ... More

Texas Taco was fantastic! The atmosphere was great right on the river. Even at night we could hear the river flow.

Not only is the food great but the poeple are just as great!!! Serious TX is always sponsoring our kids in the community and doing something for some school/ kid friendly event. This is my favorite local place to eat with my friends and family.

When first eating at this BBQ place, several years ago, I would have rated it much higher. Coming from the Austin Texas area, we were fans of Elgin links, which were offered. All the meat we tried, brisket, ribs and turkey were moist and smoked well. This time it was acceptable but disappointing as compared to previous visits. I think... More

Good food at reasonable prices. Friendly service. Patio seating preferred. Location is on the North end of town outside the main tourist area but on the free trolley ride
