Their Pitmaster sandwich was super delicious. The smoked sausage definitely made the sandwich. The bread pudding was a nice finish to the meal. Super tasty all around with everything.

The winter deals are great. Two for one burgers on Wednesday. Great service considering we had a large group of 10 people.

BBQ was great! Had to wait awhile at dinner for a table, but it was worth it. Even bought a jar of the BBQ to bring back to Chicago

Great food and not overly greasy like typical bbq places. We came here while on vacation in Estes and we liked it so much we went back the next night for dinner again! I recommend the family-style meals for a good variety, and the corn bread is delicious!

This was my first trip to any of these "Smokin' Dave's". They had chicken, pork, and beef brisket BBQ and other choices on the menu. It was nice that they had plates in different sizes. You can choose the one that fits your appetite. We will be going back!

While this may be the best BBQ you can get in Estes Park, it has nothing on Texas. We are used to our BBQ which is much different! But the brisket was super tender and the corn casserole was amazing!! Their sweet BBQ sauce is so wonderful!! The service was awesome!!
