My wife and I stopped here en route to Estes Park, where the original restaurant is. We both ordered the Texas BBQ brisket and it was a revelation. When I was a kid on a fishing trip to the Ozarks, my dad and stopped at a country store selling home-made, smoked beef jerky. I had never been able to capture... More

Joining a group of Gold Wingers staging for an evening ride up Trail Ridge Road, my wife and I were first timers at Smokin' Dave's. The darkness of the restaurant was a little unsettling at first, but once our eyes adjusted and we were greeted by our friends, we were in hog heaven. We love smoked meat and bar-b-q. This... More

My wife and I recently took a much needed day off to Ride the Peak to Peak hwy. We hadn't been to Lyons since before the floods and decided to stop in and see how the town had bounced back from the carnage. I sure am glad we decided to stop for lunch at Smokin Daves. Our lunch was awesome.... More

I had the catfish with two sides for $13.95. Talk about more than enough food for one person. I brought half of it home and had it at night. Catfish had been prepared with cornmeal and was not greasy at all. Their baked beans were outstanding. My son loved his pulled pork sandwich and great beer. We would definitely return... More

We have always had other places in Lyons that we eat at, but the flood closed our favorite. So we gave Smokin Dave's a try and it was great! This is not a five star place, it is a great BBQ place. Service was just ok, but the food was extremely good and well prepared. We will be back!

The sauces were great, lots of flavor. Lots to choose from and the cheese fries are to die for. Worth the drive to this great town for some tasty BBQ.

We live in the foothills above Lyons, and have eaten at Smokin Dave's lots of times... both in Estes Park and in Lyons. They have great BBQ and offer a variety of house-made sauces. We prefer the sweet original, but you can try them all since they are in squeeze bottles at each table. If you're a green chili fan... More

We have been to Smokin' Dave's on many occasions over the last year or so with many different people and everyone says the same thing - Awesome! My husband, brother and friends all say that the brisket is the best they have ever had. And a Texan friends agrees that it is right up there with the best. We have... More

Smokin' Daves serves a large variety of great BBQ dishes. When we have family or friends visit, it is our "go-to" restaurant because the food is great and everyone gets more than enough to leave satisfied. Their family style BBQ dinner will feed more people than advertised and we always bring home leftovers. It has a great local atmosphere and... More
