Good BBQ for Colorado, the owner does a good job of serving good food, I am from S.A. Tx and I eat a lot of Brisket from all over Texas. Good place to eat, just needs to work on the BBQ sauce, just my opinion.

Just do. We order off the menu and special ordered a turkey for Thanksgiving. Just do it. The staff is great and so is the food.

Love the atmosphere here.. it is so quick to get your food. I had the ribs which were good. I didn’t care for the bbq sauce. I also wished they had ketchup for the cheese potatoes.

Thank you for giving us a try on your visit to Colorado. Our BBQ sauce and signature condiments are always a tasty addition to our Cheesy Potatoes. Give it a try next time!

I'm a Texan so I take my BBQ seriously. This is about as good as any I have eaten in Texas. They even have Elgin sausage!

It's decent barbecue and has Texas in its name. Kind of represents the cognitive dissonance of Durango's entire restaurant scene. Do you want cosmopolitan fine dining like you would get in a big city, or do you want to keep tourism dollars pouring in without...More

I love the food here. This isn't my first Trip Advisor review of Serious even. But, I have a problem. I've brought this up with the staff, but it's awkward for them. Here goes: unless I'm carrying cash, which is rare these days, I can't...More

I come here at least weekly. I have never been disappointed. Service is great, staff is great and food is awesome! I wish there was a “frequent customer “ program but hey! It does not matter that much I will continue to eat here!

We order the six meat sampler. There was turkey, pull pork, brisket, sausage, and pork ribs. Everything was juicy and tender. The cheesy potatoes and slaw were awesome accompaniments to the meal. The place is not fancy, typical Texas BBQ joint with paper towels for...More

Stopped here for lunch while on vacation. Best BBQ in Colorado. My fiancee loves Texas and swears this is the most authentic he has had outside of Texas

Whooo!! Glad we gave you a taste of Texas in Colorado. See you next time

We love to stop here when we're hungry NOW, or when we want nutritious take out. The water views from the patio are nice, too. We often have dinner here before a movie, because it's fast, but not junk food.
