Great little corner joint. I had the wrap - smoked chicken, Cole slaw & Redford beans, with potato salad. I'm pleased to report that it was the best meal I've had since entering the state of Colorado! I'd definitely come back if I had the time!!!

We were on our way to the wolf sanctuary and passed this small place with smoke and delicious aroma coming out. We finished the tour and went back. Good choice!!! Might be the best ribs I have ever had. They make everything with a variety of delicious sauces for dipping. They also smoked their own trout and it came with... More

We had dinner here tonight on our way to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. It was delicious. We had been there before but there is a new owner now so the menu was not up- to- date and we wound up paying a little more than we expected, but we were satisfied with the delicious food, quality ingredients and...

Well it was a lot of food & we can say we stopped there. The food was okay but I guess BBQ is a personal thing & coming from KC area we think ours is the best.

I don't know where this trout comes from and I don't care it is fantastic! I try and eat only wild fish but even if this is farm raised I will eat it every time I go through Divide. This place is always busy but worth waiting for.

All I can say is I miss the old owners. Used to be my favorite place to stop by on the way to go fishing. My most recent experience (and sadly the last experience) was awful. I created a Trip Advisor account just because the experience was so bad. We walked in and did not get the usual friendly vibe.... More

Have been driving by this for years. My son and I stopped on a camping trip. We found the food to be awesome and the staff fast and friendly, no issue paying with a credit card. We liked it so much we stopped on our way back, only better thing would be if they had a cold beer to go... More

first impressions: the lady who introduced herself as the new owner has "bit**" tattooed on her cleavage and there is truth in advertising. the door was open when we walked in and asked if visa was accepted, as we had no cash on hand . we were brusquely told that we should have seen that ourselves by the small sticker...

Small little place with big flavor. I tried both the pulled pork and the brisket. I always try my Q without sauce and the brisket was flavorful and moist. The pork had great flavor but was a little dry, so I tried the sauce and it enhanced the flavor. My son had an elk sausage (well ok he had 2)... More

My wife and I have driven past this place many times and thought about trying it but we always timed it wrong. One day we found it open and dropped in around 11:30 for lunch. Smokin Q does mainly BarBque. The building looks large but when you go in the actual area is quite small. They have an order counter... More
