Wasn't impressed

A little disappointed as I was looking for a nice sit-down dinner. They use a cafeteria style approach to serving, you line up, place an order, then stand around while it is served on paper plates. Food was okay but nothing different than most BBQ restaurants. Good place for dinner with children.

We will drive for hours out of our way to eat at a Serious Texas BBQ. Wish they would open in Phoenix. We eat here going and coming to Pagosa Springs every year plus at least a couple times at the Durango location right on the Animas River. Beautiful view and fabulous food.

Seriously love BBQ...this place has the best "Texas tacos" but I have to say this branch is not as good as the ones in Durango. Their tacos are wonderful, and the meat is tasty and usually lean. (ask for lean meat) Their loaded potatoes are also a great option. The service is always great, but if you want to get... More

I like the way they do their ribs They DO NOT par boil them, like another place in town does--that is awful I like everything here, all the meat is great I pass on the semi sweet sauces, however And sweet cranberry sauce on a pulled pork sandwich?? No But very good overall

Service was good. Food not Texas BBQ. It was bland and poorly prepared. Décor was okay. This is not a stop to be repeated.

It is OK but does not have the real smoke I would expect. Sauces are average with no real distinction. Smoke ring in minimal but it is a cute place to eat at.

Friendly Staff. Mediocre BBQ. Sauce is Way Too Vinegary (I say as a Native Texan). No jalapenos on condiment stand. Wet Brisket was "wetter" than we welcomed . . . wish we had tried lean instead, this time . . . .Sign at the door says Guns Are Welcome . . . let that be your guide.

I love barbecue in just about any form, on ribs, shredded pork, chicken, you name it. So, I was eager to try this new restaurant in Bloomfield, NM, a place resembling a culinary desert. The town is surrounded by oil and gas exploration -- what do you expect. Well, it was very disappointing, to say the least. A self-serve place... More

It was by chance that I stumbled about this restaurant, because the one next door had a long line waiting to be seated. What I found was a real surprise. Everything was very basic, no plates, just a piece of paper on a tablet. You buy the meat by weight, Beef Brisket, Sausages, Pulled Pork, Ribs by the rib, you... More

I go to eat Barbeque for the flavor. Serious Texas Bar-B-Q has no flavor. No good charcoal, no good smoke, not even decent spice. It taste as close to boil meat as possible. Good barbeque should taste good without the sauce, I found my self having to drink my food with the sauce on the table. Definitely not visiting this... More
