Rustic setting, generous portions, decent BBQ. Meal with two sides was only fourteen bucks. Popular spot, may have to wait to be seated.

Being from Texas, I know great BBQ and this is good food as a Colorado BBQ place goes and just a so-so BBQ if it was in Texas. Nice and clean restaurant and Brisket was moist and smokey a 3/5, pulled pork about the same 3/5 and the Jalapeno and cheese sausage was s great 4/5. Sides of red beans and rice kinda blah 2/5, cornbread was cold and hard...big blah and a zero.....No onions and no jalapeno's were served...a HUGE zero if you were in Texas....All in all a very good "local" BBQ place. Their 4 BBQ sauces were GREAT and bought a bottle of each to take home!!!!

Food was delicious. Went for lunch and dinner. Both times there was a wait but worth it. Not overly priced so that was a plus.

We had a 4 meat platter with ribs, pulled port, half chicken, and brisket. The brisket was a little dry but the others were excellent. Of the sides, the red beans&rice and green beans were the best - don't bother with the potato salad or hush puppies. Service was great on a very busy night in Estes.

We knew by the packed parking lot that we'd be eating good food. It was better than good and the service is excellent. We ate there 3 times during a 6-day stay. That says it all.
