This Serious Texas restaurant is not as good as the one in Durango but still very good food! I recommend the Texas Taco, this is my favorite. Very much so the best BBQ place in Farmington (not much competition, but still the best). Worth trying!

Food and service is great. I love the daily specials. I usually am not a fan of turkey but the smoked turkey here is awesome!

I have a coupon for a Texas taco wow talk about big. It was good and had pinto beans with it they were good. This was my first visit. I might order the family pack next time.

We stopped in for supper while visiting Farmington. We were told the food was great. We did not realize this was fast food, they had a drive thru too. My husband had the ribs and they were tough and to me tasted like lighter fluid. I had the brisket sandwich and the quantity was great but the meat was dry.... More

I'm a Texas transplant to New Mexico and I had the first BBQ I can remember from the early 60's came from a roadside, tar paper shack in Corsicana, TX. HEAVY SMOKE flavor, sweet and/or sweet and spicy sauces plus some damn good beans. I doubt you'll be dissatisfied...

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.

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.

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
