We spend a minimum of 5 days in Estes Park every year. We used to go to Smokin Daves at least two times each trip. Last year we didn't stop in at all because of the wait and treatment we got the year before. We decided to give them a second chance, but will never return to this restaurant. The service is slow and poor, and they didn't even have a steak available to order. Just ribs. And honestly the ribs are no where near what they used to be. If you want good ribs, go to the Sagebrush in Grand Lake. If they were in the same town, Smokin Daves would be out of business.

This is real barbecue. The kind you may expect in Texas or the south. Prices are very reasonable. Service was real good.
