We decided to try Serious Texas BBQ while visiting Durango recently, and found it to be very, very good bbq. The service not so much (you queue up in a long line and order at a window), and the atmosphere not so much (extremely casual and loud).

Great ribs and pulled pork with a wonderful dry rub. Sauces on the side (like it should be). Patio dining available.

Finally while back in Durango I had the opportunity to take my husband to STB! We got two different meats, the cheese potatoes, coleslaw, buttermilk pie and apple cobbler!! The meat was tender and delicious. The cheese potatoes very good (a kid favorite I am sure) The coleslaw was a bit spicy, but good. The buttermilk pie. Fantastic (just get past that word "buttermilk") You will be happy you did. My husband said that was a "extremely good cobbler". I like to go there as often as I am in Durango. The ambiance of the place is great. Outside patio over looks the animas river. Total family dinning complete with paper towel rolls on the table. Be sure to have Durango Cream Soda with your meal. Coke you can get anywhere.

We were recently to Durango to ride the Durango/Silverton train and had a spare couple hours one day for a trip into town for a little shopping and lunch. This place was just what we were looking for! You order at the counter and they prepare your food right there as you are watching. We had two Brisket Sandwiches and two Texas Tacos, along with Coronas. Generous portions of brisket on the sandwiches along with pickles, onions, and bbq sauce. The Texas Tacos had pulled pork, bbq sauce, jalapenos, onions and pickles too. They had a sauce bar along with extra pickles, onions, lemons, etc. The hot sauce was very good, and extra bottles of bbq sauce on all the tables. We had the opportunity to eat outside and did. This was an excellent place for food and to enjoy the day!

The aroma outside the restaurant drew us in and we were so glad we went. The barbeque was amazing and we had to try the cobbler for dessert - incredible. This will be a place we stop every time we visit Durango
