SMOKIN awesome!

After a fun day of snowshoeing in RMNP we had our antennae tuned for a brewery and a cold beer. We caught sight of SMOKIN Daves and decided to give it a try. Fantastic on every count - terrific menu and the BBQ was off the chain! We ordered and shared a platter with ribs and chicken plus 2... read more

Daves has a large menu with something for everyone. I really enjoy the pulled pork and brisket. Children's menu and great desserts. Three locations, Lyons, Estes Park, and Longmont

Went with a customer today for a quick lunch. Ordered the Taphouse burger and was pleased that it was not a processed burger but real meat. The sweet potato fries were excellent as well.

After a day of hiking near Estes Park, and a quick drive into the NP, we stopped here for a beer and snack on our way back to Denver. My Moose Drool was good as always, and we shared a generous plate of twice baked potato skins. We sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender, and really enjoyed... More

Great BBQ and music. Of course I'm biased because I play music here regularly. The staff is great and the food is always good. You won't regret this one.

Had the Pitmaster Sandwich basket for lunch, served with a huge portion of sweet potato fries. OMG! They have 4 BBQ sauces to choose from, and a good selection of brew on tap.

The menu is quite diverse not just the typical barbeque that I was expecting. We split the meat... More

The ribs were OK, but a little crusty. I liked that they had a choice of BBQ sauces at the table. The outside deck had large sections of sunshades that made sitting outside very nice on a hot and sunny day. Unfortunately there were flies around, at least a dozen, and we had to wave them away from our food... More
