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.

The Bar D Wranglers put on a great show and we even got to see the Riders in the Sky!! Amazing how they can put so many people thru the chuck wagon lines so quickly!! Yummy too!

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

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

Food was very poor quality. Processed chicken patties worse than any fast food restaurant. Steaks were over cooked. Small baked potatoes with only one pat of butter, canned apple sauce and dry bland piece of spice cake for desert. Way over priced for what you got. I would rate music and show as fair.

Thanks for sharing. We would have refunded your show ticket price if we had of known how unhappy you were. Coincidently, the other negative reviewer was a child also from the Chicago area. The owners and operators of the Bar D are the entertainers and their families. We cover 3 generations and have served 2.5 million guests over the last... More
