Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is the place for BBQ in Durango...people ship it all over. We ordered tons for a party and it was perfect. Favorite is the turkey and cheesy potatoes!

“This places brings "with a view" to new level...”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Great view of the animas river and that is why it got such a high review... we were there in the afternoon and it looks like that have it set up to have bands out there as well... we got the bbq burrito and it was good but I don't think I would order that particular item again, the potatoes just didn't seem to fit in it and the bbq beans were a little bland...with that said we will still be back and will enjoy some cold shiners and will sample something different from to menu and enjoy our time on the patio and take in the mountain air!

“Unique restaurant - love the patio, trees and flowers! Great brisket!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Location at 650 S Camino Del Rio, Durango, Colorado 81301
I recommend sitting outside on the patio if the weather is cool enough. We're from SC and really like Bar-B-Q. We got the Big 6 so we could sample all of it. The best meat in that meal was the beef brisket - moist and tender. The pulled pork was a little dry. I loved the smoked turkey, hubby said it was OK. Ribs were good. The cherry chipotle sauce was my favorite (especially on the turkey). I'm giving this restaurant 4 stars because of the uniqueness of the property. It looks like they took an old garage and re-purposed it. The patio with all the trees and flowers gave us a welcome bit of color in an arid landscape.

“Huge portions, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We were driving back to Pagosa Springs after visiting Mesa Verde National Park (DEFINITELY worth visiting!) and stopped here for supper. It was our first time so we had to be educated on how it all worked. Just so you know, you stand in line at the counter, order, receive, and pay for your food, then find a table to sit down at. No one told us about the condiment bar on the other side of the dining room. My daughter discovered it after we were done eating our meal!

We liked how individual you could make the portions - from one rib to a whole slab, for example. The brisket was delicious as was the pulled pork sandwich. We all had a hard time finishing our meals.
