“If you look at the ratings while I posted..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Smokin' Dave's was the highest rated restaurant in Estes (behind a donut shop and two coffee stands). Everything in our larger group was great, from the ribs to pulled pork, brisket and catfish. They also have a real nice selection of beers to choose from. If we were staying longer, we'd be going back this trip!

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I think the test of Good BBQ is what the Brisket taste like. I mean it's kind of hard to mess up the rest of the meat; but brisket... is it too fat, too dry, does it have a flavor or is it just beefy jerky. So their brisket was pretty normal. Kudos dude ..and Thanks

“Great dinner in Estes Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We were there for the Enjoy Estes Park promotion. We won the contest and Smokin' Dave's was on our list for dinner locations. We loved it. Great burgers and pulled pork. I think that everything would be great on the menu. The service is great and very accommodating! We will definitely come back. We heard from people in town that the Reuben sandwich her is to die for!

“This Place Really is Smokin'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

We were very surprised to find outstanding barbecue in the Rockies. This place is very popular and crowded at meal times, but they operate very efficiently and you won't wait long.

The drinks, barbecue and sides are all outstanding and the service is quick and attentive. Would definitely return when in Estes Park. Brisket reminded me of growing up in Texas.

“Almost Better than Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

This place was wonderful - the BBQ is excellent, and the service was warm and inviting. We were there during the week, so it was quieter, but it's a great place for watching a game or bringing the family -
