Best food I had on vacation and one of the few places I didn't have a gluten allergy reaction. I tried the chicken, loaded potato and veggies.

Best BBQ in western Colorado. If your in the Glenwood Springs area this place should be at the top of your list. The atmosphere was excellent, the food was amazing, and the service was good.

After waiting for an hour and half to get in, we were seated and placed our orders. We got fried okra and corn muffins for appetizer, the brisket and ribs for dinner, kids got burgers and mac and cheese. Everything was delicious and well worth...the wait. In fact, we liked it so much that we came back the following day with our friends. Didn’t have to wait as long, but we soon learned the reason. They were out of brisket. And then as we were trying to think of what else to order and settled on smoked chicken, they ran out on that literally as we were placing the order – several people running to tell our waitress that they’re out of smoked chicken. We ended up ordering ribs and burger and our friends (since they don’t eat pork) settled on salad and shrimp, although they forgot to skip bacon bits on the salad, so that had to be redone too. So a completely opposite experience from the night before and we just felt sorry for our waitress who had to break all this bad news to her customers while none of this was the fault of her own. She was very nice (in fact that was the same waitress that we had a night before) and we could see how stressed she was getting. So we tried to cheer her up and heard another big table tell her the same thing – it’s not her fault. For a restaurant to be out of two of its signature dishes on a Saturday – that was a problem. Although we later heard that due to mudslides one of the main roads into Glenwood was closed and it affected lots of deliveries (even gas stations were out of gas), so perhaps that’s what caused it. That’s our hope because it was a great restaurant otherwise.More

We heard from a local Smoke was “boojey” but it’s certainly casual and friendly during the week. We were intrigued by the chefs philosophy and menu. What a great choice. All of us made the clean plate club.

Great menu with salads and seafood amd traditional bbq meats. But there’s really nothing traditional here- it’s all better than anywhere- lightly smoked and bbq. Great Mac and cheese and coleslaw w pepitas. So very good!

I accompanied my fiancé to his work’s holiday dinner at Smoke and everything was fabulous…the food is delicious, the kitchen is efficient and service from RUBY is flawless. Ruby took care of several large parties including ours simultaneously and left me in awe of her...skillful and KIND service. This woman is a queen! 👸More

The food is okay, but getting someone to serve you is another problem. I think everyone working in this restaurant is stoned or just plain clueless.

We went on a busy Saturday night with a party of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids). The hostess worked hard to get us a table ASAP. Shout out to RUBY who took excellent care of us despite being very busy. The owner/manager was around...and very attentive to get everyone taken care of. The food was amazing!!! The burnt ends Mac and cheese was the BEST! We also tried the Philly cheesesteak and Texas sandwich with smoked brisket. All were very tasty! Portions were huge so we took some home. Definitely recommend and we found out the do take reservations.More

I know BBQ can vary big time based on smoke time vs. when you are eating it. It is a tough concept. But when we ate here at 7:30-8pm my experience was excellent. Drinks came fast, service was excellent and food was great. I think...my brisket was probably not typical but the fatty cut I got made it tremendously tasteful. I enjoyed my dish and would repeat here.More
