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

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.

This meat is too smoky flavored...I burp it up for a day after eating. Just too rich. I haven't eaten there in years. I know it's a favorite place for many but not for me and my husband.

Lots of choices and it's all good. Make sure to get a loaded backed potato and save some room for cobbler. Eat in or take out.

Great food and a fun place. Went with a large group of friends and Texas Serious exceeded our expectations. Diverse menu, nice sized portions and plenty of cold local refreshments. Definitely worth repeating and will not order the nachos as an appetizer and a main....More

Awesome BBQ served up by fun loving servers. The view from the restaurant is great and the atmosphere is casual and fun - a great place to grab lunch or dinner. Only regret is they don't have BBQ chicken. But their turkey tacos are epic!

Delicious bbq food with a real down home atmosphere. Texas tacos are by far my favorite item, can have with traditional pork or the turkey- both are equally amazing. Everything comes with the house sauce, which is so good! And you can buy jars of...More
