I love BBQ and have had it from every place where they say it was invented and they have the best. Smokin' Daves has moved into the top 3 on my list. First the location is great -- there were 4 Elk just across the street looking at the people looking at them -- good start. It looked like it was very crowded but were were seated within in 5 minutes -- it is larger inside than it looks. The hostess although very busy had a friendly greeting. The menu has something for anyone. My son had a sandwich with grilled chicken breast, bacon, and brisket. He said it was great, large portion, and cooked just right, nothing was over cooked. I had the meal with brisket and pulled pork -- true test of a BBQ resturant. Both were cooked perfectly, had great taste, and very tender. The pulled pork was very lean -- there was no excess fat. I tired all of the sauces and they were very good. The mustard based one was very good -- it matched some of the best from the Carolinas.
Service was good and friendly -- although very busy the waiter took his time to answer all of our questions and give opinions to menu items. He kept the drink full and took care of our requests.
Defintely will be back sinc eI have a son going to CSU. Great way to end the day after going to RMNP.
