Good BBQ

Excellent eating place, very casual, good food-especially if you like smoked BBQ. Good selection on the menu, lots of beer on tap, local brews.

I love BBQ. I hate trying new places that folks rave about because it's always a disappointment. This was an amazing surprise. The meats were sone perfectly. My family is wimpy when it comes to spice so I was relieved that the food comes mildly seasoned and you can add your own level of spice at the table. We opted... More

Our favorite meal all week. Crowded when we arrived so we sat at the bar and had a beer and also ate our meal. Quick service and great food. Try the pulled pork and ribs with original flavor or spicy, you can pick from 6 different sauces. Delicious crispy sweet potato fries and I had an Angry Orchird crisp apple... More

I love the Ribs here but came in at 345 in the afternoon. Was seated promptly but had to get up after 10 min to order anything. Asked for water with my meal. Not delivered again until I asked. Side cole slaw is good, tater salad is bland, needs more acidity and flavor.

Limited parking off busy section of main road. Lots of room inside and out to eat. Although I can only comment on the catfish, ribs and hamburgers...it’s enough to comment. The ribs were hard wood smoked and the best I have in Colorado since my short 6-years living in Denver. The catfish was okay, but the burger was a major... More

Tried 3 times to stop when they were not busy! Did not happen! Can see why people are willing to wait! Small but cozy and warm! Best meal of our trip!

If you are coming back from Rocky Mountain National Park or you live in Boulder and you are hungry - head for Smokin' Daves. Our party of 4 stopped in the restaurant on the way back from Rocky Mtn. and all 4 of us loved the food. We all had the brisket. I had Dave's Double and also had the... More

Not great but okay. I ordered ribs and had to peel the membrane off myself. First time that's ever happened, but I do prefer to grill my own ribs and I know how they should be done. The Texas sausage was really good. Fish and chips are frozen but edible, and our 2 y/o loved her chicken nuggets. Servers did... More

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 beers! Initially we thought the prices were a bit high, but then we saw... 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.
