“Incredible Food and Superb Views of Spectacular Alpine Wilderness”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I've eaten all over the world, from remote islands in the Yellow Sea to top cuisine in Paris, and nothing tops the divine menu and stunning atmosphere of this laid back place, the Slow Groovin' BBQ. Their menu is incredibly unique and they put so much effort into creating just the perfect atmosphere. The service is excellent, and the owners are so hands on and really care that you have a great dining experience. There's a beautiful sunny (or shaded) outdoor deck with stunning views of the panoramic mountain landscape of giant pine trees, with the outdoor old-fashioned wood smoker filling the air with an aromatic scent created by the exotic woods they create their smoked food with. If you are a vegetarian they make fabulous salads and delicious macaroni and cheese, so you won't feel left out. The pulled pork is out of this world, and for something truly different try the Hillbilly Nacho's that is something even the hungriest mountain man couldn't finish eating. They have special smoked chicken wings and the owner makes her own cocoanut cream pie that is to die for, in case you don't choose the warm home-baked cookies.. All in all, you won't like but LOVE this place and all you'll be thinking about when you finally leave is, how soon can i go there again? ps Just watch out for Ziggy, a little black cat with a bent tail that has no shame and uses mind control to make you give him your food.

“Not Texas BBQ but. . .”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

It wasn't Texas BBQ, but St Louis BBQ instead. Whatever it was, it was fantastic! What a surprise in the remote town of Marble CO. All four of us got something different and we all loved it. I can personally vouch for the ribs. The place was, understandably, busy. I had to laugh out loud when I read the sign above the toilet.

“Hidden Jem”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were on a jeep trip out of Marble to an old mining town called Crystal Lake. When we turned the corner onto the main street, I saw a few gentlemen tending a smoker at 10AM in the morning. I immediately knew where we were stopping for lunch! The restaurant has a few outside table where we started lunch until a thunderstorm forced us to retreat to the main dining room. I had a beef brisket sandwich that was smoked perfectly. My wife had a chicken sandwich that was awesome. Both kids had homemade mac-and-cheese. This place is well work the 5 mile drive off of route 133. The jeep trip was great too.
