Good BBQ and plenty of it

Stopped by for lunch after taking advantage of the river walk, and were pleasantly surprised. Somewhat difficult to access the little restaurant, but don't let that deter you, because it is well worth it!

Chicago Bob's is a small roadside eatery that is absolutely serious about having the best ribs in town. The guy at the counter taking orders was REALLY busy but took the time to explain the menu items and was very friendly about it. It's mostly for carryout, although there are a few tables inside and a picnic table outside if... More

There's often at least a short line at the counter for the excellent barbecue cranked out from the smoker in the back. The meats are perfectly prepared, tender and flavorful, and the limited sides are just the thing for the smoky ribs, brisket and other offerings. Inside is spare, with just a handful of tables, but it's clean as a... More

5 Star rating on the BBQ it is done right !!! Friendly mom and pop little side of the road place on the main roundabout in old downtown section. The historic district in Canon City is a must see for anyone who has not had the chance to step back in time so to say.

My wife and I had dinner here. She had babyback ribs and I had the brisket and pulled pork. Both dinners were very good, but a lot of food. They only have about six tables and do mostly catering and take-out, however, since we were the only ones there, we ate in. For my wife, the meat was very tender... More

Well, after being given the price of $25 per single rack of ribs that includes NO sides, we just left. It smells great, but seriously. They were even almost out of everything on the menu and offered us no deals on the left over anything.

I wish there was a 6 or 7 option... this place was that good. I don't look for BBQ outside of Oklahoma - generally disappointed. I was in a hurry and had a wild hair, this place had good ratings and 2 were from OK, so I tried it. Can't wait to go back. If you want a great food,... More

I just recently stopped in there and was offered a sample of the BBQ and it was beyond believable. I ordered a baby back rack of ribs and it was so good I went back 3 days later and it's a 100 mile round trip from here but more than well worth the trip.
