Let me preface this by saying we are from the Midwest and have not had BBQ in many parts of the country, but we loved this restaurant! (Better than the 2 BBQ chains we have near us!) We were in Durango 4 days, and ate at both of the Serious Texas Barbeque's in town, it was that good! Good prices, great food, relaxed low-key atmosphere, really nice that they featured beers from the local breweries, and both locations have nice outdoor eating areas too. Employees nice and helped us navigate the menu and made good suggestions our first time there. If you enjoy BBQ, don't miss it, be sure to try their signature sauce too!

This place was just great fun! Fast, casual dining perched above the Animas river.
At mid-day we ate on their giant covered patio with a fine view of kayakers and rafters and tubers floating down this calm stretch of river. Tables are set with a wooden box containing a roll of paper towels and a big Texas-sized bottle of a very flavorful, spicy, vinegar based BBQ sauce.

Inside we lined up to order at the counter and to decide whether to eat indoors or out. Our choice was easy on a Summer afternoon.
Their food was pretty tasty and certainly reasonably priced ($6,50 sandwiches, tax included, for example). The Pulled Pork sandwich was especially smoky and delicious. The Pork Loin sandwich seemed not quite tasty or ample for two of us who ordered it, despite its mild pineapple jalapeño sauce. Our favorite was their $5 Texas Taco, with lots of cubed potatoes, cheese and BBQ meat. Wow, big, juicy and full of flavor. It even got better with their table BBQ sauce.
The view was worth it all, plus delicious food! We are fans!

When we returned home, our credit card bill showed an incorrect amount. We called the Manager and he immediately credited us properly. with an apology. We assume this was just an honest (careless) mistake, but appreciated his immediate action.

Advice: Always keep your original receipts when traveling - of course!
