Delish and $

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

I was very surprised at how good the food is here! I had the Dave's Double and picked the ribs and pulled pork for the meats and then baked beans and spiced apples for my sides (it comes with cornbread). Everything I had was fantastic!! The pulled pork was so good that you didn't need any BBQ sauce on it... More

Stopped there for a late lunch after hiking. It was delicious! We ordered the smaller of the two sampler platters so we could try different things. The platter came with brisket, pulled pork, ribs and chicken plus 4 sides, corn bread muffins and Texas toast. We ordered BBQ baked beans, green beans, coleslaw and spiced apples for our sides. Everything... More

We stayed just south of Estes Park and was referred to Smokin' Daves by the proprietor of where we stayed. The drive from Estes Park area is scenic, curving along the river and canyon area. There is another Smokin' Daves in Estes Park but we were told that to avoid the crowds and waiting time (it was summer) it would... More

I stumbled on this place about 3 years ago, it's on my list of must-stop places. Love the atmosphere, bar is fabulous, huge variety, but the BBQ food is 2nd to none! The place has a great dining room (with overflow in the back area) and a nice outdoor shaded deck area. Parking is a bit limited, unless you know... More

We frequently go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Instead of fighting the crowds at the Smokin' Dave's in Estes Park, we make the scenic drive along highway 7 through beautiful South St. Vrain Canyon to the Lyons location on our way home. If you take highway 36 from Estes Park, you can be at the Smokin' Dave's... More

We stopped here on a whim and loved it! Tonya our waitress was so nice and they let our dog sit on the patio. We had the ribs with green beans and baked beans, and chicken platter with corn and mashed potatoes - the servings were huge and the food was fantastic. The sauces are great (my fav was tangy...

We elected to stop here on our return trip back from the Rocky Mountains that day. Lyons is a small unique community and Smokin Dave's is conveniently located on HWY 36. If you have ever been to a Famous Dave's or Corky's BBQ, expect a similar menu. At 5Pm, the restaurant was comfortably full. Service was good. Food was served... More
