“Stick with the Ribs”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We went here for lunch and while the ribs were very good (and reasonably priced) the "highly acclaimed" cheeseburger was a disappointment. It was dry, overcooked and topped with white lettuce and almost white tomato. The lunch special on ribs was well worth it at $11.99 for a slab with fries and slaw (with the burger, you only get chips; fries are extra). Overall a good place for lunch if you stick with the ribs.

“Huge portions and good value.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Recommended to us by the staff at our lodging. A bit away from the town center so have to drive but parking was adequate. Features of this restaurant are barbequed meats (other meat dished also on menu) and highlights are the combo meals. Portions were huge. Prices quite a bit less than most Aspen restaurants in the town center.

“Best value in aspen”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Typical BBQ fare, really tasty, tender and for a very good price. The portion seems very big on the menu but the actual size of the ribs is smaller than usual..."baby back ribs", so absolutely manageable. Family restaurant atmosphere, decontracted and easy going. Tastes like real food!

“Tasty barbecue”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We visited here after an arduous hike - we were starving, but left feeling satisfied. The BBQ is good - we recommend the ribs and the beef. Beans were pretty good too.

“The Best Ribs You Will Ever Have!!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a very casual eatery in comparison to some in Aspen, but definitely one to try if you are tired of fine dining and white table cloths. There is only one thing to eat when you go and that is ribs. I will be very surprised if you ever taste ribs as good as these. Just be prepared, because when I say casual, I mean casual.
