We had the pulled pork with the cherry chipotle sauce. Very delicious. The sides tasted like home made not from a jar. Cheezy potatoes and Pinto beans was excellent.

We were taking a day trip from Pagosa Springs to Durango and stopped at this location. This is a restaurant that is all Texas in decor. There are several places to eat including a porch outside. We ordered at the counter and picked our BBQs a short time later. You get your own soft drinks. We sat near the window... More

Wow, the BEST turkey tacos ever. You can get the regular size or mini. I get two mini turkey tacos with pickles, onion, jalapenos and cheese and some of their great topping sauces and I am set. Also amazing sweet tea! I have had their cheesy potatoes and they are also so good. Their cobbler is great, although they serve... More

Looks are deceiving! This isn't a gourmet restaurant but bypass all extras and just order the ribs. I am not a fan of bbq but these are the best. You order at the counter and they weigh the meat. They have seating outside that is right on the river. Their homemade sauce is in a wine bottle and it is... More

Our family enjoyed brisket, turkey, and pulled pork sandwiches along with Texas tacos after a long day driving. This was on par with any BBQ restaurant in Texas we've eaten at. The prices were very affordable and the portions were generous. Service was good and the restaurant was clean. This is worth a stop when you're in Durango.

Is it ideal bbq? No. But, it isn't bad for a weary traveler. I can't often find a bbq near my home with a Lone Star or a Shiner, so that was a plus. None of us like the cherry-chipotle salsa, but we loved the pulled pork and the Texas Taco! We ordered extra to take on the road!

I travel to Durango two, sometimes three times a year and always make it a point to stop in at least one of their locations. I usually end up buying extra sauce and salsa to take back to Ft Worth with me- then order more from home when I run out. Good stuff!!!!
