ALL the staff was VERY friendly! My husband and I chose The big 6. It had a 1/4 pound of Turkey, sausage, pork ribs, pulled pork & brisket & the cheesy potatoes were good too. The meat was very moist & flavor full. They have 4 kinds of homemade dipping sauces that all had a great flavor. Something different I... More

We found this to be an excellent place to finish off the day. The atmosphere is very relaxing the food is great and the portions are generous! The only negative was parking is very limited...Aside from that the price and quality was exceptional!

I am not a super big fan of BBQ but hubby definitely loves BBQ. I never order pork sandwiches unless it is sliced- not pulled - and is had to fund in these type places. However, I have made this place an exception! The park sandwiches are to die for.....seriously! The place is always full and the service is excellent.... More

We recently ordered Serious Texas BBQ in Durango from their website for a impromptu family party. We ordered brisket, smoked turkey and pulled pork. I was very happy with the turkey and the pork. The brisket was very dry. I have eaten at the location in Fort Collins as well and the brisket was dry as well. I talked to... More

We all had the brisket sandwiches for supper. They were very generous with the meat. We also got the pinto beans, Then the blueberry cobbler for my husband and a peach cobbler. We enjoyed it very much.

Uptown restaurants are always crowded and pricey. This place is a little dive and looks like a place you'd want to avoid, but looks are deceiving. It is a tiny place but the BBQ is amazing! They have brisket and pork plus various beverages on tap or bottled. Go through the line and order the food then take it to... More

Being Texans, we know our BBQ. We stopped in for lunch, each getting something different on the menu. It was all good. We ate outside, on the covered patio. Great food, great portions.

Serious Texas serves a variety of slow smoked meats......pulled pork, brisket, ribs, chicken. Typical sides - fries, potatoes, beans; even the hungry tend to leave with leftovers. It's all tasty and reasonably priced - just what you're looking for if barbecued anything is your pleasure. There's a second location south of town near the Durango Mall - the menu is... More
