We LOVE Serious Texas. The south location, along the river can't be beat. The kids love the mini golf course and that gives parents more time to converse and relax looking out at phenomenal views. The food is great, try a Texas Taco. You can't leave without a piece of pie either. Everything is low key and about as Texas a bbq as you're gonna get in Colorado - you won't be disappointed (even if you're from Texas).

Tender and tasty ribs. No fat and they come right off the bone. Sauce is not too thick and very tasty. We like picking up a rack to take home and eat, they give you extra sauce. Have also tried the pork loin and chicken -- ribs are our favorites. There are two stores in town, one on the north entrance (this one) and the other south of town by the movie theater/mall.

We are from Texas, this is good but I would not say it is better. I think hard plates would be a lot better. But we are not in Texas and this is a great substitute The staff are great.

Food was only average and certainly not Serious Texas barbecue. Sauce was very weak. Food served on wax paper but none given to eat on so we used napkins on the table. Once the knives cut thru that we were eating on the table. Brisket not bad but nothing else special. Cartons of the delicious Blue Bell ice cream are displayed but none is served. Decent value but a real disappointment

Little hole-in-the-wall place on the north side of town with great food. We tried the Big 6 with 1/4 lb samples of 6 things. We got it to go and ate back at our hotel room and discovered that we only received 5 things. I called them and they apologized and have us $4 credit on our credit card. All was good except for some kind of ham which was too dry and tough. I didn't care for their watery BBQ sauce.
