Great food, VERY fast service once seated. You should be a meat eater and not a person looking for a lot of veggies...although they do offer some. If you are in a group of more that four, you should break yourselves into two groups asking for two separate tables, if this is okay, otherwise you should be prepared to wait... More

Smokin' Dave's has great bbq! Ribs, brisket, chicken fried steak, and roasted chicken! Their fries are fresh and cooked perfectly. Delicious every time. Friendly staff, old-timey decor, awesome deck with a funky antique store next door. Fun place for happy hour with live music. This is our go-to restaurant!

All of these dishes were the best we have had any where!! The employees are almost running to serve you quickly. I think this one guy I saw there is Dave, he was running serving and talking to people. It was amazing to see such a great staff work together. It was a 45 minute wait to be seated, but... More

The food and service were great after a 45 minute wait. Good selection of beverages and food. Great flavor to the several BBQ sauces on the table - we tried them all!

This is a great place to enjoy some great bar-b-que. Large portions, excellent location, tasty beverages and a pleasant staff made this one of my favorite restaurants in Lyons.

Yep. Pulled pork nachos in Colorado. Done right, loaded with everything a growing boy needs and served on a plate big enough for four people to enjoy! Cold beer. Easy to see why its popular!

We stopped in on our way from Denver to Estes park for lunch. The food was great and the waiters was very attentive. The Carolina BBQ sauce was perfect with my pulled pork sandwich.

I've eaten at Dave's about 20 times and love this place. Their meat is tender and you have the option of 4 different BBQ sauces. My favorite is the tangy. Sometimes they have musicians which is a nice touch. The bar is full with many local microbrew selections available. They also have local seasonal beer selections. The portions are big... More
