Typical BBQ nothing special. BBQ was pretty good. Will not make a second stop. You order and pick up at the counter.

Food is fresh. Tax is included in everything. They don't allow tips on any credit cards though. They have a few restaurants in the area (2 in Durango, 1 in Farmington and 1 in Loveland).

Our hotel host recommended this establishment to us. We found the food delicious - especially the pulled pork sandwiches. Yummy. They went down great with a local beer. Very casual eatery. Would have enjoyed eating outdoors, but not early April!!!!

The BBQ itself was alright, the side dishes a little lacking but overall we had a nice meal. Ambiance was typical for a BBQ restaurant.

This is the last thing I would call Texas BBQ. Big disappointment. The coleslaw was hardly edible and tasted like like it had been in the fridge for a month. The staff was not very friendly. I will never go there again.

Stoped in for dinner, overall a good menu, ended up picking the sampler plate, more than enough food for two. The pulled pork, ribs, sausage,and turkey were tasty, the brisket was just ok. Didn't care for the sides. The various sauces were pretty interesting. Good place to stop for a quick bite.

We are Texans, and we know good BBQ when we taste it. During our visit to Colorado, we needed a hot meal, but didn't have time to drive far or wait long. We stopped in Serious Texas Barbecue and were pleasantly impressed. The menu was simple to read and prices were clear. The smells that greeted us when we walked... More

Excellent BBQ, and it is truly TX BBQ (yes I'm a Texan). Simple stand in line and order. We tried the sampler: brisket, pulled pork, ribs, smoked turkey, sausage- ALL EXCELLENT! BBQ sauce is honey based and yummy. Great view on the river and right off the hwy, so easy access. Indoor or outdoor seating and there is mini golf... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way back into town from Honeyville. I had their mini-taco with smoked turkey, jalapeños, onion, and pickles with queso, omg that was delicious! The service was great as well!
