After driving through Estes Park, this looked like a popular spot so we decided to have dinner. I enjoyed a platter of chicken and tri-tip along with a local beer. The meal and service were great and the location very convenient. Should I return to Estes Park, I would again dine here.

Amazing food and the best smoked brisket I have had in a while. The different sauce's they offer, particularly the mustard, were great and tasty. If you are going to Estes Park please eat here at least once, you will not regret it.

Visited Estes Park and being a BBQ conniseur noticed this place was always packed so decided to get a taste of Colorado BBQ. The Menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. Not the best BBQ in the world, but it is BBQ and found out later it is a chain. The service was quick and food was good. Not... More

Just a classic BBQ joint with decent beer selection and friendly wait staff. Smashed potatoes and the baked beans were fantastic! DO NOT FORGET to order a side of their green hatch chili!

Lovely food! Welcoming, very busy. We are there twice in a week, once at lunch time and once in the evening. Both were busy but the evening more so. If you haven't booked be prepared to wait. Really good catfish tenders!!

Both had a very good favor and the Sausage was very spicy. Being from Louisiana it had a good amount of heat. The brisket was tender and good also. We also had the baked beans, smashed potatoes and red beans and rice...all very good.

Very good BBQ. We ordered takeout & ate in our cabin but this place was very busy. The ribs were cooked to perfection. Sweet potato fries were very tasty and so was the coleslaw. Nice find! Gave us 10% off the bill because we were staying at the Rams Horn Village Resort.

That Brisket with Bleu Cheese sandwich was killer. Oh, and ask for a side of corn bread! Atmosphere is casual, service was decent, price was fair. 4 different sauces to suit anyone's taste. Personally, I prefer the original....smokey, dark, sweet molasses based
