Chuck wagon dinners have become a tradition on family vacations and Bar D did not disappoint. The show was funny and kid friendly. The food was good and service was quick.

We usually come to Durango once a year, every year, and have been coming here since we were kids. We try and swing a visit every time. It is worth the price to upgrade to the steak and I would call it great! The beef and chicken are good but the atmosphere is fantastic as well as the entertainment. Keep... More

It was raining the night we went, so everything was indoors under a tent. Part of the fun of going is the outdoor experience under the stars, so I wasn't happy to be inside. The food was just fair and the entertainment just wasn't really our thing, although the performers were quite talented. If you really like cowboy or old-fashioned... More

First visited in the 1980s on a trip with a large family group, and I have continued to return every ten years or so to enjoy again the Bar-D Chuckwagon dinner and show. The Bar D has played host to three generations of our family since that first visit thirty years ago. It has gone through a few changes since... More

In their fourth decade the bar d is a must do for the decerning Colorado visitor. Good food and good times await. We live nearby. This is the place we take out of town guest. And when you live here you get guest. So enjoy some chuck wagon BBQ with a side of opossum song. And be sure to visit... More

Folks I go every year. Its a highlight of the summer for my family. Come hungry and enjoy the show. There is a lot of comedy and fun. Beware, if you are a mean spirited big city type do every one a favor and just stay there.

I was starvin' by the time we were allowed to eat. I wish they offered two shows - perhaps a lunch type show or even an early afternoon show. It's a lot of food, and I thought it was all pretty good. I wish the dessert was not just spice cake, but that's why they try to sell you chocolates... More

This is a highlight for anyone's visit to southwest colorado. The food is very interesting. The show is wonderful. If you are from a big city you will find it a rich cultural experanced.

The food is processed, service terrible, and the entertainment even worse. My parents were excited about the reservations and anticipated an exciting evening. Turns out, it was the worst experience we had on our trip through Colorado. DON'T GO

Rick S, Manager at Bar D Chuckwagon Suppers, responded to this review

It is unfair to travelers that Trip Advisor lets children post reviews. All but very few of the 2.5 million customers over our 45 years of operation are enthusiastic about our show and service as shown by the success of the Bar D and the 4.5 star rating on Trip advisor. Word of mouth makes a business. I'm sure that... More
