Our last meal in Estes Park, arguably the best. Lunch ceasar salad with brisket and their classic sweet sauce was outstanding, All of their flavors were excellent, and to top it off they had Rock Cut Pilsner on draft!

Great food & friendly people. It may not be the best choice for a family on a budget. It is a good price for the type & amount of food you will receive. It is right next to trout haven so if you have kids this makes for a nice place to walk if there is a wait.

Favorite meal in Estes Park on our recent vacation. The brisket and pulled pork were very delicious as were the smoked wings. Would definitely recommend if you like BBQ!

Service was good, even though we had a 30 minute wait at 8:45 at night. The food was also good, but not fantastic. The best part was their corn casserole which was amazing. Their ribs had good flavor and were tender. We had a serving of coleslaw but it came out warm and smelled spoiled so we did not eat. Overall it was ok, but there were definitely better options in Estes.

Woohoo sweet tea, cornbread and BBQ. Couldn't ask for more! Poor Estes park really lacks when it comes to good food but Smokin Daves has got it down to an art! Yes they're going to be busy and yes you will have to wait for a table but it's worth it! The chicken is moist, ribs and sauces are amazing and everyone bragged on the brisket all week! We actually ate there twice while in Estes Park. One day we ordered our meal to go and ate it at our hotel next to the river. Seriously give this place a try and if you don't want to wait then come at a slower time. Obviously they're going to be busy at lunch and supper time. Duh everyone on vacation is hungry at the same time so be smart and do a little planning if you can't hold your horses once you smell that delicious BBQ smoke hit your hungry nostrils.
