Fantastic bbq; over 25 draft beers

Stopped here based on other Trip Advisor reviews. It didn't disappoint! The brisket, short ribs, and sausage were absolutely superb as were the coleslaw, fries, potato salad, and beans. They don't have their own microbrewery; as they say, they specialize in barbecue, let others specialize in... read more

We had dinner here on our way to Estes park. It was very good. Several of us had the pork ribs and we all liked them. We are from Texas and know good BBQ! My husband had chicken Marsala and he really liked it. Definitely recommend.

This is the first time I've eaten at this location, I usually go to the one in Estes but I knew we had a hungry bunch and didn't want to wait. We sat outside on a perfect day. The waitress was very nice, quick, and the food was great. My husband and I shared an app platter, which is what... More

The food is average, if you eat pork. We had the fish and chips and chicken fingers which were dry and hard as if they had been cooked and then leftovers cooked again. The staff are very friendly and take good care of the patrons, but the owner came barging out and yelled at us because we parked 3 feet... More

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 flavor. The bread it... 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!
