AMAZING BBQ

I moved to Colorado about a month ago from Texas, and was really missing BBQ, so the family I am staying with took me up to this wonderful place. I ordered some sweet tea(tastes like REAL sweet tea, not that fake stuff) and the Texas pork sandwich. The meat was sooooo tender and had that smokey... read more

Had such a great meal at the Estes Park Location we had to hit the Lyons location the day we left back for Denver. We all had the same pulled pork again and it rocked. Even though it is the same chain, we give the slightest of nod to this location. Can't go wrong either place.

We are so greatful for those that contribute to TripAdvisor. We would have drove past this place if we did not read the experiences of others. Smokin' Daves left such an impression on us we ate there twice! I totally enjoyed the Ale and Cheese soup for an appetizer. My wife had a rack of ribs and all that was... More

Living in Juneau, Alaska can make for a difficult time finding a good, fresh burger. Smokin' Daves satisfied my hunger. Thanks!

I live where Famous Dave started his first restaurant .. and where he has started his second chain (after selling off his interest in the corporation). I was expecting a Famous Dave's knockoff (which wasn't paying franchise fees.) I got better. There was always a marked the difference between the Famous Daves original store and the corporate stores, and this... More

The menus were newspapers kept under the cashier table. Finally got the menu. The lighting is poor. The paper is old fashion newspaper and difficult... More

We had 5 in our party and got the Big Kahuna!! It was delish. And so much food we couldn't finish it. Reasonably priced. Also sampled some CO beers that were also inexpensive. Great day at Dave's!!

We are from KC and we were very impressed by Smokin' Dave's BBQ. We shared a plate of pulled pork, baked beans, smashed potatoes and cornbread. There was a lot of food, and we ate everything. It was delicious- one of the best BBQ meals we've had. Also, the service was really fast (possibly because we got there 30 minutes... More
