“Holy Smokes! That's some good BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I could've eaten here everyday of our stay and been totally happy. They have a different special everyday so there's plenty of variety. The ribs were delicious! Brisket was delicious! Turkey was delicious! If they happen to have "smashed potatoes" that day, definitely order them. Incredible! The owners made our experience even better with their friendly demeanor, generous portions and engaging personalities. It was truly like having dinner with friends you hadn't seen in awhile. I highly recommend Hail's Holy Smoked BBQ & More! Thank you for the good food and great experience! Keep up the good work

Thank you so much for the review! Sorry it has taken so long to get a response from us...we didn't know it was possible. :-)
We are glad that you had a positive experience with us!
We have a sign hanging in our dining room that says "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" and that is how John and Wendy- the owners, want everyone to feel!
We hope to see you back on your next visit to Angel Fire!

“Small place, Small prices but Great food and Great owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We ate in Hail's Holy Smoked BBQ while on a recent ski trip, and the food was very reasonably priced and the portions were large. The owners were working, which I assume they always do but they were very helpful and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to send friends or strangers there. The brisket and turkey were really flavorful and their menu was very accommodating to our kids. The sides were outstanding as well. I can't say enough good things about this place. in the middle of Angel Fire, NM

“Great Customer Service, but”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

From the minute we walked in the door the owner made us feel at home, great people, I really liked them. Maybe I just caught them on a bad day but the ribs were way over cooked, I mean WAY over cooked. The kind of over cooked that makes you think they would have said “Hey, the ribs are on the burnt side” or just not served them at all. The brisket and pork were also a little over cooked (very dry) but not as bad as the ribs. The flavor was ok and the sauce was great but I had to use too much of it to overcome the dry meat. I love BBQ and especially ribs so I will probably skip Hail’s when in Angel Fire.

“Really Good BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food was very good and all tasted fresh. Had the Bubba Burrito (brisket and green chilies - awesome), sausage, ribs and brisket and they were all really good. Be sure to also try the Cowboy Beans...yummy. The owners were very nice and friendly. The service was great. One of the best places we ate at during our trip...only wish we would have found them earlier in our trip because we definitely would have gone back.

“Good BBQ. Incredibly Friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Took the family here on our last night in Angel Fire. The husband and wife who own the place are incredibly friendly, and the service was awesome.

The food was delicious as well. We had the Bubba Burrito and smoked turkey sandwich.

If you're in Angel Fire and looking for a good place to eat, this is it!
