“Great smoked meat in the middle of Colorado”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Excellent smoked brisket and pulled pork! So good that we ended up eating there 3 days in a row. Son is out in Idaho Springs working for a rafting outfitter. Took us here on our first day. I got the brisket sandwich, which was great! Various sauces at the table to choose from. At on deck outside that overlooks Clear Creek. Since it was so good first day we went back the 2nd day for an encore. Had the pulled pork, which was tender and tasty. Others had ribs that day which were also very good. 3rd day, Smokin Yard's was the stop for lunch during our full day rafting trip. Had combo of brisket and pork. Still good after eating it for 3 days in a row. Looking forward to a future visit next time we are in the area.

“Very average bbq”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

The food wasn't amazing, but it wasn't terrible either. Unfortunately the meat was pretty dry and didn't have that much flavor. I ordered the pulled pork and honestly the pulled pork at my university's dining hall was far superior.

“GREAT service attentive employees”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

The bbq is really good, portions fairly large. FAMILY run. Every few minutes they ask if all is good and refills are plentiful.

Friendly staff, really good bbq, great sides, the brewed iced tea was very good. Fast service. Not a huge place but also has a nice outside patio by the river so you can hear the river while eating. We enjoyed out meal
