REVIEWS OF Smokin Yard's BBQ IN Colorado

Sebastian Bannock

You're missing out if you don't stop here to eat. The food was great (pulled pork - be early if you want brisket - I was sad I missed it), the staff was super friendly, great atmosphere... everything was just "right", and you don't come by that very often anymore.


Fried catfish, 3 meat plate, 2 sides, 3 sauces at your table. Shiner Bock on tap. Don't let the outside of the bldg or neighborhood fool ya. This is the real deal. Fantastic fried pickles and homemade ranch for dipping. Indoor outdoor seating.... great blues piped throughout. Dang! We'll be back next trip from the Western Slope!

Dennis Henry

Yum! One of the best pulled pork sandwiches I have had to date. How is it the smaller BBQ sites seem to always have the best food. We stopped after a short hiking trip and only waited about 15 minutes to get in to order. Plenty of room inside to sit even with a bit of a crowd. They also have outside seating and a walk down to the river. I didn't like some of the hotter sauces, vinegar taste turns me off, but their sweet sauce was delicious. This little place is on the east side of Idaho Springs. Plenty of parking in the lot and on the street. Easy on/off from I-70, Worth the stop!

Mark Ruff

Really delicious! Glad we jumped off the highway and looked around for something local. We ordered ribs that came ended up being a little bit of a different cut than anticipated and the whoever, not sure if it was the owner or cook or manager, noticed it while walking by our table and brought us some new ones on his own. This while the ones we had were already delicious and we had no complaints. Great service, great food, great outdoor seating. Highly recommend!

Randy Goddard

Always good side's are fresh and hot I have visited this place now about 5 times and been good Everytime

Mary Flores

Absolute best BBQ I've ever had. I always go after the hot springs. Staff is sooo nice. Great experience

T. J. Brumfield

Surprisingly good BBQ for Colorado. It was some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. The hot links were also quite good. The brisket was decent but didn't blow me away. The chili mac and fried okra were both great. The local beer selection was quite nice. The Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout was particularly amazing. I don't think I liked the boiled peanuts but I had never had them before. Maybe they're just not my thing.

Nate H.

Smokin Yard’s is one of the go to iconic Idaho springs eats. Food is always killer and staff is always friendly. Try the Wednesday special, you won’t be disappointed. Also, $2 PBRs and a patio... best price in town. The owners Scott and Andrew always seem to have a smile on their face!

Tim Slim Decamp

This place has some kickass barbecue. I take my mom there for a tree at least once a month. You can wrap down the river and pull right into the barbecue place. Or you can just get your food and walk down to the riverfront seating. It's a great place to check out especially if you have the munchies. I don't believe they sell hard alcohol and Cocktails but they do serve beer and some kickass barbecue

Joyce Cutri

The best bbq I've ever had. Super friendly

Christopher Skelding

Great environment, food, and service!

Teresa Sisneros

It was ok. Food was decent, prices extremely high for the portions thy give u. Left there and had to hit McDonalds

Ricardo Meleschi

I am from Texas and love Texas BBQ. This place reminds me of home. The sides, the meats, the ambiance, it was all fantastic. There are few things better than finding a local joint that reminds you of home.

Leslie Knapp

Best BBQ in Colorado! Great service, wonderful view!

Rory Wood

This is the best BBQ I have had in Colorado and the patio is amazing.

Max Longley

The place was recommended to us as the best barbeque in Colorado. The food was okay. I'm no barbeque expert but my sliced brisket was dry as all get out. So was the pulled chicken sandwiches my kids got. The food had good flavor but the beef jerky I had was just too dry to finish. On an upside the service was super fast!

John Firkins

Prime rib special was incredible, ribs were excellent, pork and brisket were good. Nice place with great staff

Gregory Linge

This place is great! BBQ about as good as you’ll get in the Carolinas plus it’s super fast. Staff is friendly. I can’t actually find a bad thing even if I’m trying

richard garcia

grate BBQ haven't been here since 2011 when I worked for ace now that I am back in Denver I will be heading back I highly recommend

Nicohle Christopherson

Not enough tables. Too crowded during dinner. Asked to be seated outside, was refused. Food was good. Ribs are really great. Mac n cheese was a touch dry. Soda was watered down.

Jesse Spurling

Good food and good atmosphere right by the creek

Meik Bartoschek

Great Southern style BBQ. Generous portions. Delishious home made sauces. Nice outside patio area. Convenient parking.

paul skinner

Carolina pulled pork sandwiches are the best I've ever had. Don't miss out

Seth Berger

Great BBQ in a humble place. Everything was juicy, tender, and tasty. All the sauces were great. The links and pork with the Carolina mustard matched really well. The ribs and brisket got on super well with the rest of the BBQ sauces. I'll be back for sure.


Nice little BBQ place in Idaho Springs. Nice outdoor area.

Savannah Yamaguchi

This place was GREAT!! My boyfriend and I came here because we got a meal voucher with our stay at Indian Hot Springs(DO NOT RECCOMMEND, DO NOT GO THERE) and this was probably the best thing that came out of our stay at Idaho Springs!! Food was delicious, and the staff was very friendly and attentive!! Thank you guys for having such a great place to eat!!

Ally Sprague

Best BBQ in the state! Family owned & operated, well worth the wait! (If there is one)

Anna S

This place is the best, not to mention the only place I've seen in CO that has boiled peanuts... which are delicious. Fyi.

Bret Hicks

Delicious BBQ! The wait can be long but the food is always excellent and they are generous. The bar staff and servers are quick and keep everything moving along. One of my favorite spots to stop after a day in the mountains but also dangerous because of the food coma.

Dawne Saunders

Love this place! BBQ is awesome.

Helene Winkler

Tasty ribs and brisket. Tried Colorado beer. Potato salad good. Whole new town. Small historic atmosphere

Sarah Watkins

Their brisket and ribs are delicious! The servers / staff are very friendly and on top of keeping your table clear and clean. Fast service as well.

Vicous Snoman

Just try anything you won't be disappointed! I'd tell you my favorite but then they'd be out of it more!

t f

Great BBQ, friendly service, convenient location. Also, try their boiled peanuts, you'll love them! Good with beer.

Tom dizzle

Food was great! I got the spicy coleslaw best thing I have tasted in Colorado!

Bobi Jo Herbel O'Dell

Thank you. My husband and I enjoyed lunch with our dog on your patio. Wonderful. Spectacular scenery, good service, and tasty food.

Gretchen Houdek

Good BBQ. They have fast service and friendly staff.

Tamara Perine

This place is fantastic..the best burnt ends and the corn...OMG. Wasn't even hungry but couldn't resist.

David Betz

It's the best barbecue I've had since leaving the south. Just a hidden gem if a barbecue joint in the mountains. Try the Carolina style pulled pork...ours off the hook. Friendly staff and quick service also

Jennifer Pultorak

Great BBQ place. The food is amazing and everyone we’ve brought here (including a friend from Texas) has been impressed. This is one of our top go-to restaurants in the area. There is always a line, but it moves fast and is definitely worth the wait.

Rachel Torres

Best BBQ in Colorado. This place is the entire reason I go to Idaho Springs from Denver. Amazing food quaint atmosphere. I only eat here twice a year or so but I always dream of it until I return

Maureen P. H.

Best restaurant in Idaho Springs especially for those who are Gluten Free. Sat outside on the back deck and fully enjoyed some bbq chicken and mountainscapes!

Tom Reichner

Great BBQ restaurant at the gateway to Mount Evans. Best place to eat in Idaho Springs.

gina sandoval

Food was amazing! The meat fell right apart so delicious and very tasteful! The service was outstanding and very helpful! Amazing views of the mountains and river. They also have outside patio seating overlooking the river.

Brad Walker

Staff was super friendly and helpful and food was delicious.

Maddy's Toy club and Shortz

Good food. I was disappointed that they were out of boiled peanuts

Colleen Nolan

Some of the best barbecue around and as a Southerner I appreciated the boiled peanuts to snack on while we waited for our meal.

Mark Burnam

None better. We shared the 4 meat combo with double brisket, St.Louis ribs and pulled pork. Super tender brisket. Great smoky ribs. Sauces to choose from at the table. Ask for and try the mustard sauce. WINNER.

Dee Riedel

Early dinner. This place is FLAVOR! The prices are very reasonable for the location. I had the hot wings, and the size of those things! The homemade Mac and cheese is a definite order. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich with fries, both of which were perfectly seasoned. Make this a destination.


Always friendly, always good, never regret eating here

Robin Torres

Excellent BBQ..been looking for awhile...found it

Elizabeth Williams

Good BBQ but there was a wait to order and to eat. We were even there late (like 2pm) but it was a Saturday. Service was good though and the food was worth the wait.

Cynthia Galluzzi Black

Best food to eat I love this place

blue dog La.

Waaaaaaay overpriced for so-so barbeque.Horrible service.

Robert Auhll

Great brisket, fried fill pickle chips. Munch on boiled peanuts while waiting for your food.

Daniel West

Awesome BBQ joint in the mountains. Good selection of meat, sides, and sauces. The prime rib was delicious!

Alexander Zepeda

It's in my top 5 bbq places to go, great views great vibes and the great historical town.

Adyna Rivera

I love the bbq here!! So good! Stays pretty busy. But still a nice laid back environment. I ordered the Carolina pulled Pork sandwich with a side of creamed corn and sweet potato fries! It was really good. My girlfriend let me try some of her brisket and it was one of the best ones I've had!

Sarah Brumfield

When the meat stands up on its own without sauce, you know you're in the right place. Great food, excellent selection of sides. Will definitely be back again the next time we're in Colorado!

Rissy B.

Great spot off I-70 for amazing smoked meats. Burnt ends are my fave. Pulled pork sandwich is always a quick, safe go-to, too. Inside and patio are both good spots to enjoy your food. It’s a must to order food first and have a table number before claiming a table since the place can quickly become packed. Dog friendly patio and dog friendly servers!!! Service is on point, btw. No BS here!

Autumn Bonds

Some yummy bar b que, delicious sides and the sweet tea was just right. Very nice place, awesome vibe. Outside patio that overlooks the river, you can even walk down to the water.

Jesus Alcantar

amazing place excellent food and accurate friendly service you will love

Steven Killian

Amazing customer service and the food is incredible. When I ordered being my first time and what not I ordered wrong and without question they fixed it. Amazing all around I’m a customer for life

Alex Harm

The pulled pork here is outstanding. I try to stop on my way to skiing I-70 or on my way home. Sometimes I'll take home a pound of pulled pork. The mac & cheese side is a winner.

Hilary Stevenson

We love coming here every Monday for all-you-can-eat ribs! And their sides are awesome! Don't forget the boiled peanuts when you go!

Ian Sallee

Best barbecue I've found in Colorado! Pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and hot links are all on point. All their sides are great, especially the fried pickles. They even have boiled peanuts! Sometimes crowded, but there is a good reason for that. Decent beer selection, friendly staff.

Thomas Peterson

Always need to stop and get a burnt end sandwich if I'm in the area along with many other delicious choices! I've been coming here since the first opened.

Bryan Conkle

The staff convinced me to leave before I even got through the first door so i have no idea how the food is, smelled good though. There was a line to get in and i was about to go in and ask how long the wait was when a staff member told me to close their door and turned around and walked off. Even the guy in front of me gave a surprised look. So we closed the door and went to a different restaurant. Now I love BBQ and will wait for it but that was off putting.

Ellen Blalock

Delicious pulled pork sandwich, fried okra and boiled peanuts!!

Morgan Crozier

Has a great burnt ends sandwich here

Jody Grigg

Great tasting food at reasonable price for the mountains. Definitely will be back. Plus they support dogs coming in the summer for outdoor dining.

Dallas Pancoast

You will more than likely wait. You also won't mind at all. The food is worth it and it's served by friendly staff who are great about checking in, getting refills and whatnot. Can't even recommend one thing to get over another, everything I tried was amazing and the BBQ sauces should be sold by the bottle. Will absolutely come back.

Logan Miles

This place is amazing. I grew up in South Carolina, and it's hard to find a BBQ joint in Colorado that can meet the standards of home. These folks did it. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great, and they have free boiled peanuts while you wait (which isn't long)!

Nelson Kropf

Friendly and quick service. Good BBQ in a nice little western town. Had the brisket and pork which were delicious

Shirley Bingham

To small, wait too long and ribs were tough and dry, will not go back..

Leslie Proudfoot

Great brisket and collard greens. Chocolate cake is an excellent finish to the meal. Casual place we often stop by on our way back from skiing.

Roger Aden

Amazing food will be back but a bit pricey but about normal for good smoked meat

J Law

Great BBQ! If you plan on hitting it on a weekend it can be pretty packed. They have a great patio on the back. The kids enjoy watching the rafters from the patio. We love to get the 4 meat option (2 half chicken, brisket, and pulled pork) with a couple sides. This and the boiled peanuts usually feeds the 5 of us well for around $35.

Johnny Noyola

Local and small restaurants are the best. I love their pulled pork as well as their smoked wings. The buffalo sauce is hot enough for the kick but mild enough to enjoy. The selection of their signature BBQ sauce is outstandingly delicious. While you are waiting they have boiled peanuts that are good. It's awesome that you can buy by the pound in case you want some for the week. Would definitely recommend.

Jo Butler

Nice people. Good brisket and pulled pork. The ribs were not quite on par with the other meat. Great Mac n Cheese. Pathetic BBQ sauces.

Joachim Vielhaber

Yunmie yummie! Greetings from Germany, will come back for sure

Cindy Fischer

I had lunch here last week Best bbq ever loved it will be back!! Service was great and not bad to look at ....Wow handsome!!!

Jimmy- Aceman80127

This barbecue joint is indescribably delicious! I wasn't sure what to order so I just got a pulled pork sandwich. You would think, that's a basic thing to eat but let me tell you, it was the bomb. You dont need sauce for any of the meat because it is so juicy and tender, but with some of the homemade sauces they have it makes your meal even better.

shaun sloan

Very good smoked food. Great service. They really care about their customers and you won't leave till you are full. Recommend Also dont forget to look up on the mountain, I watched a herd of big horn sheep play. Amazing setting and scenery, this place is a good rival to Jim n Nick's in aurora

Triston Sisneros

Fantastic BBQ and fantastic sides. Some of my favorite fried pickles!

Heath Warrington

Food and service far beyond expectations.

Nicole Waliczek

FANTASTIC!! We come up here every year for our anniversary, since 2012, and sometimes if we're feeling an itch for BBQ.... We absolutely love Smokin Yards

Robert Applehans

Best prime rib I have had in a long time. Absolutely love it.

Ervin Webb

Best BBQ I've ever eaten. That's saying a lot for someone over sixty. Can't wait to go back......

Marta Nelson

Yummy BBQ close to Clear Creek. We had the brisket, catfish and pulled pork.

Virginia Marshall

Good food, mostly reasonable price, seating out by the creek

Bryant Hanushchak

Best bbq I've had in years. Thank you so much. I'll definitely be back

Bikiran Guha

One of the best bbq places i have been to!

Jaclyn O'Donnell

Beautiful location, delicious food at a good price and fast, friendly service even though it was busy. 10/10

Dave Williams Jr.

Wow...very surprised . This place is Awesome. Baked beans are the best I have ever had and the pulled pork is just great. Will be back!!!!

Nick Randolph

Ate at Smokin Yard's BBQ on a recommendation. It was excellent bbq. Tried brisket, pork, hot links, smoked hot wings.... all excellent! Service was fast. Restaurant was clean. Bronco's game was playing on several tv's. Highly recommend!

Randy Brown

Service was great. BBQ was mediocre. The brisket was chewy as if it was heated in a microwave and had no smoky flavor. The chopped beef was more on the lines of stew meat. The sauces were also lackluster. However, based on the reviews I’ve read many people liked the food, guess my Texan standards are too high.

Greg Knaddison

A great cozy BBQ spot in an area that has far too few good, reasonably priced options. They also offer boiled peanuts in the shell which is a rare treat. I've had the pulled pork sandwiches, Mac and cheese, french fries, and beef brisket sandwich and enjoyed them all. The space feels very cozy with fun roadside decorations on the walls and rustic tables. On busy days the line can grow out the door and take a while. If the wait for a table is long, consider getting food to go if you don't need to wait for a table. My kids say this place is amazing: YUMMY YUMMY.

Sofia Vallarte Hernandez

Food is delicious!! Service is not always great. Sitting are in winter is difficult for large groups. Today the young girl with red shirt was clueless. The lady at the register was Phenomenal and was running the whole show. Thank you!!!

Carol Bennett

Good food but a little pricey.

Gunther Guerra

Clearly a reason this name stands out in the area, excellent food

Morgane & Brendan

Dee-licious. Or should I say finger lickin’ good! Burnt Ends sandwich is especially good. Yum!

Mark S

Best BBQ restaurant overall that I have been to and I am 68 and live in Tx - REAL smoked meat - sides also very good.. friendly great service and scenic location

Courtney C

The burnt ends are our favorite! We love the place and it is where we stop every time we are in town!

Tori Meyer

My husband and I travel I-70 often. We heard about this place after staying at the hot springs. It is THE BEST BBQ in the state of Colorado (and we love bbq and are both Colorado natives). The BBQ is unbelievable and the staff is always great! This place will always be our favorite place to stop.

J Garza

Great food and great service

Steve Sida

Delicious barbeque and great people delivering great service. I took my mother up to get her out of the city and into the mountains at the end of November. The place was decorated for Christmas tastefully and had a really warm mountain feeling. I would highly recommend it!

Marc Warsh

Best in the world. Prbably what jesus would eat.

Michael Boyce

A great place for extremely good bbq

Dave Hodgson

Great food and super staff

Ted Tate

Some of the best bbq I've had! Get the burnt ends if available!

Weston Hood

I love this place. I always come here with friends and family. Its ALWAYS packed though so obviously its awesome. Its got indoor seating and a cool and awkward-to-get-to outdoor area which has views of the canyon at least a lil bit. The brisket is fricken awesome. I didn't like the links quite as much. Sandwiches are great too. Definitely coming back to this location and would like to go to Denver too

Del Bloom

Fast friendly and delicious. Nice outdoor patio.

Eric Grimm

What a pleasant surprise to have excellent Texas bbq along a spot I usually get off on my way to somewhere else. Had to go down the block a ways and the aroma captured us. Smoked, juicy burnt ends brisket and the pulled pork on the two-meat plate was enough for two, and the spicy coke slaw was outrageously good. No more Starbuck stop in Idaho Springs. It's Smokin Yard's bbq now!

Wes Sullivan

This place has great BBQ and their sides are great quality too. The place is super small so expect to stand in a line out the door and wait too long for a table. They don't have a good system for seating and it's kinda "you're on your own". That is excepting all of the rules they have in place with signs everywhere. This place would get 5stars if they hired a hostess and made it full service.

Sean Leahy

Best BBQ in Colorado! Love to stop here on the way home from the mountains. Get the burnt ends if you are lucky and they still have some.

Samuel Mato

I love for starters the boiled peanuts! That's a real southern thing. Then all their food is fantastic the fact that you get to sit outside while eating and choose your own barbecue sauce.... amazing!!! Every time anyone came up to visit that's where we went to eat it was perfect. Visitors love it locals love it can't go wrong with some good barbecue

Mark Murphy

Absolutely awesome! Cameron the guy that took my order was awesome....super friendly and helpful and the food was amazing!

Travis Black

Great service and there brisket is tied for the best I've had in Colorado. Fried pickles were outstanding if you like then salty, otherwise steer clear. I will be eating here again for sure when I'm passing by Idaho Springs.

Evangela Aragon

Good food. A little loud tho

Kristen Christeson

Amazing BBQ! We have been trying to find good bbq since moving out here from Kansas City (inarguably home of the best bbq) and this place is solid competition for KC BBQ! We will definitely be back!


This is a must when visiting Idaho springs. The brisket was sooo good and I love that they have sweet potato fries. Do not miss out if you are traveling around Colorado!

Nicholas Bunch

This place has the best smoked baked beans I've ever tasted!! And their Carolina mustard sauce is incredible. My only issues were that was food was lukewarm at best when I received it. Half of the brisket was very dry as well. You can clearly see the difference in texture. This isnt a "go out of your way" place but it's worth a stop if you're just coming off the mountain from hiking and all that fun stuff.

Nathan Reed

Tender meats, boiled peanuts, friendly staff, good drink selection. This bbq joint was busy, but the 30 minute wait was filled with boiled peanuts and good times and the meal was woeth every minute of wait.

mark lee

a british type restaurant, serve selection of british beers. food ok but inexpensive. child friendly.

Michael Chandler

Amazing BBQ . Sliced brisket is lean and moist with a prominent smoke ring. A great surprise

Antonio Díaz

Excellent food with very good flavor and surprising prices.

Kenneth Schechter

Good food, good location in a quaint little town. I got the all you can eat ribs and they watched me like a hawk to make sure I didn't share with the rest of my party.

Dan Morris

Great Missouri style BBQ. Have never had a bad meal here. Great quality and taste. Prices are decent, so are the portions. Recommend giving this place a try. Clean place, staff was awesome.

Sally Korff

So yummy. Glad it was consistently busy. Juicy ribs for a change, not dry.

Crystal Lee

Best BBQ brisket I've ever eaten. Small place but pretty quick service. 10 minutes for 4 meals to come out. My daughter had the BIGGEST Chicken fried steak I've ever seen. Great place to go...

Karl Putland

Fried pickles were great! Oh and the bbq was worth the stop too.

Kari M

I've been coming to this place for years and I love the food, good service and cool atmosphere BUT I wish they would get some gluten free buns for their delicious sandwiches....

Tearsa Sloan

Great food. This place may be small and parking is limited but well worth it. Line was long to get in but it went by so fast. Staff was great so helpful. Place was clean. Bathrooms clean. Though long line staff took time to tell everyone specials and help people who couldn't read menu. It was great to see this type of customer service. Food was flavorful. Well worth the money. Will definitely go back.

Katie Skilnekovich

Great bbq, great service and nice outdoor dog friendly area that overlooks the river.

Sean McCarthy

Spot on bbq, dont sleep on this place it's exactly what you need after a long hike.

HDrider69 HDrider69

We had the all you can eat ribs on Monday and they rocked! Great taste!

Gary Williams

Beautiful setting. Loved patio with view of mountains & river & tables right next to river. Excellent BBQ meats, & sides. Great service. Highly recommend.

Robert Fritzler Jr

Friendly staff, good menu and outside seating by the river. The meat (pulled pork) was tender but needed more smoke flavor. All over, good (about $9.50 to 18.00 per person).

Bea Sarver

We stop at this place every time we come through town. The slice beef is smoked and juicy. Those of us from the western slope know about Slow grooving, this is just as amazing, i think maybe even better in some ways. Still has that locals only feel. They do get busy but that's okay just have a drink while you wait.

Minh Pham

If you're spending any time solid amount of time in the mountains, you have to swing by smokin yards on your way back. Excellent bbq that hits every spot, especially if you're worn from various mountain activities. My favorites are the burnt ends, ribs, and collards. I've been eating here for several years now and they're always my favorite part of the drive back home. Can't recommend it enough.

Angela Zollitsch

Yummy food, craft beer, friendly service, and good fireveryone in the family.

Anne Sechtig

The smells are heavenly and the food matches. We loved the variety of sides and sauces. Our group particularly liked the chopped brisquet, pulled pork, and creamed corn.

Alexis Reiner

Best pulled pork BBQ sammich ever!!!

Brandon Wingfield

Great BBQ place, food was great. Hard to believe for this area of Colorado.

Charlene Heinning

Always great food and staffing! Relaxing atmosphere.

chris fayer

Best bbq I've had in a long time, ps. This sauce is a must try.

James Laverty

The barbecue itself was good. Very good in fact, at least the beef brisket is what I had. The fries were fresh which was good. I hate getting fries that have been sitting around, but these were fresh. The prices are a little high, at least that's my opinion. Everybody seem friendly there, and willing to serve. Even with the high prices I would probably go back.

Fred frank

Ordered to go, bbq sandwiches were built quickly and the group enjoyed them.

William Grace

Amazing BBQ tucked up in the mountain! Sometimes a line but well worth the wait!

Tara Venkatesh

Good food,River view on the patio!

Erica Dahl

Delicious smoked meats and sides!!! Don’t head to/from the mountains without hitting this place up. I had the smoked brisket sandwich and I felt the price was very reasonable for how finger licking good it was!! Nice cozy small town feeling and the young staff was very attentive and engaging- another rare find. I will be rewarding myself after the slopes with this bbq from here on out! Only bummer is I didn’t find it years ago!! This place is family run so skip the fast food chains and spoil yourself with some deliciousness!

Phil Jones

A friend of mine told me about Smokin Yard's. He said it was the best BBQ he's ever had in his life. Our family of 5 came for lunch one day and were blown away at how amazing it was. The flavor was incredible and the prices were reasonable too. Service was a little slow, but they prepare everything to order and it was well worth the wait. Highly recommend coming here whenever you're in Idaho Springs. We checked in on Yelp and got a 15% off coupon too!

Scott Daves

My wife and I always make it a point to stop in when we're out this way. When we stopping yesterday around 1pm on a Friday, there was a line out the door. That's not uncommon for this place. Growing up in GA, and traveling all over TN and TX, this is by far one of the best BBQ spots. The food is always good and I like the down home feel.

Jessica Kuzsnir

! THE BEST BBQ I'VE EVER HAD! stopped on a whim and I was more than pleasantly surprised. seriously, this place has the best barbecue I've ever eaten. it's incredibly good. we'll be back for certain!

Jeffrey Konspore

Delicious BBQ, especially the Pulled Pork & Brisket with their coleslaw. Easy on/off Hwy while traveling to/from Denver to Breckinridge & Vail towns.

Roger Griego

Great B B Q...Staff friendly. And will get you in and out...well worth the wait if there is a line to get in.


Great food and atmosphere. Dog friendly patio is a plus!
