We were only in Creede for one night. But lucky for us it was Tuesday. Rib day at Tommyknockers. And even luckier for us, we got the last rack. Several others (we are guessing locals) came in to get them to no avail. The ribs...More

We have eaten here a number of times, and it is consistently good. A real laid back atmosphere that suits both the locals and visitors. The BBQ is great and always love their soup of the day. The real plus is that they are usually...More

Nice people and a good place to relax. Some bartenders are excellent, others very nice but not good at drink mixing. Help in this town is drawn from the stable of actors from Creede Rep. Theater, it seems. Stick to beer or very simple cocktails,...More

We were surprised to find a BBQ joint in an old, historic building. Very attentive bartender/waiter, fast service from the kitchen and surprisingly good barbecue. I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to pulled pork, but this place did not disappoint. I'll stop...More

We sat on the patio out back with a view of the mountains (and a few telephone wires). The smoked pork on the Cuban sliders was fall apart delicious and an indicator of what their BBQ and ribs must taste like. Quick, efficient service.

We were tooling around Creede and asked where can we get a drink. A local shop owner pointed us here. Great choice. A fun little back patio and the upstairs balcony is great. This is worth a stop for a drink.

The Tommyknocker Tavern was established in 1999 by a group of locals in the historic mining town of Creede, Colorado. Over the last thirteen years, it has grown to be a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, featuring great live music all summer and fun local events throughout the winter! The Tavern's restaurant (The BBQ Bistro) serves great food in the casual setting of this historic Creede building with a spacious back patio. Delicious sandwiches, salads and our famous BBQ Ribs go great with our selection of both locally and globally brewed beers.
