Great Casual

Nothing fancy here. It's just good bar-b-q. Loved being able to look out the window and see the river. Not a bad place at all. Friendly folks and plenty of food in the Texas Taco!

Went to this establishment on the recommendation of a friend. The brisket was gray and tasteless. The sauce on the table was thin and vinegary. They offer other sauces but they were not sitting out so I requested a sampling. Cranberry habanero salsa was okay as was the cherry chipotle however nothing to really write home about. The orange jalapeno... More

Came in at 4:30, wanting the chicken special. Daughter loves it and wife was craving the taco. I was told the chicken was ready but could not be served until 5. Daughter was in tears, wife wondering what to do. We ate here anyway but I only had a small dish. What has happened to taking care of the customer?... More

My husband and I were visiting Durango from Dallas and decided we'd like some good hometown BBQ. Unfortunately, Serious Texas BBQ did not satisfy our cravings. The brisket was dry and flavorless, and the sauces in the dining area missed the mark as well. I had one rib and that was pretty good, but the stuffed baked potato, although stuffed,... More

I am certain that all of the meat has been smoked in an electric smoker and due to the dryness of the meat they must have smoked it for ages. The brisket was so dry that I was actually thankful for the horrible tasting sauce and the pulled pork could have been made better by using a crockpot to cook... More

The ambiance wasn't high end, but the food was delicious. We especially liked the BBQ turkey. We ordered the sampler plate and split it between the two of us. It was plenty for dinner.

Can't really say this was the best BBQ. It was average. We got to sit outside and look at the Animas River. It was a beautiful location. Kids liked the turkey meat the best. They said it was really moist. Also, it was fun to try the different sauces. The fun part is that it's a mini golf place too!
