Heard good things about this restaurant but my experience was awful. Coffee served was lukewarm and brisket sandwich bun was terrible. Half the meat was fat and not edible. For $14.99 it was a dry bun with terrible meat. Had to pay extra for fries or salad except the small bit of tasteless coleslaw. Good selection of sauces to add... More

We had the brisket. It was OK but not the best BBQ that we have had. It came with French fries and we added corn bread and coleslaw. Here again, the food was OK but nothing to write home about.

Got in last night in the rain and were cold and hungry, this place was great. The brisket was very flavourful and tender. Judging by everyone's meals at the table I'd say all the food here is good.

We stopped to eat lunch on our way home from summer vacation and we were thrilled with the size of our portions, the taste and service. If you enjoy smoked meat, this is the place to go. The smoke was a delicious explosion of taste but not overpowering. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. We look forward to returning as... More

But the staff didn't say anything and we're still happy to serve us. Had nice friendly atmosphere. Would use it again if ever... More

We always make sure we're hungry when going through or stopping for the night. Huge portions of fantastic BBQ. Definitely on of my favorite places to eat. Been good for the last several years, can't see it changing anytime soon.

My family was on our last stretch of a two week road trip through the US and Canada when we stopped for the night in Golden. We were all very hungry when we drove by the Fire Pit and we decided to stop and see what they had on the menu. I walked in the front door and knew that... More

Late lunch on our way through the Rockies. Both of us had the Brisket. It was tasty but not out of this world. There was PLENTY of food on our plate. The yam fries were really good.

We stopped in at this location for dinner. It took some time to be seated by a very friendly waitress even though the restaurant was not busy at all. The food (ribs and steak were fine but nothing special like one would expect from a "BBQ Smokehouse" The service was ok and the food was acceptable but the menu prices... More
