Tucked away in Marble, Slow Groovin BBQ was an accidental discovery a couple years ago, and been a regular in the summers since. Now with a satellite operation in Snowmass Ski Area, it's not just for summer any more. Try it, You'll LOVE it.

This was the best pulled pork and brisket I've had!! Atomic buffalo turds (stuffed jalapenos) were great. No complaints with the okra, cornbread and coleslaw. Very friendly staff, will definitely be back. This location is open May - October.

Like all of Marble, this place is friendly and accommodating, with amazing food and even reasonable coffee (something we find challenging in the US). We treated ourselves after a hike to the Crystal Mill. You can linger on the verandah without feeling pushed to leave,...More

We were just driving by and said if nothing was open we would have eaten cheese and crackers. We see a sign that says BBQ ahead. We were slightly skeptical but decided we would at least drive past it. As soon as I pulled up...More

The staff is laid back and friendly. We ate outside. While waiting for the food a quick rain shower moved in. The staff did their best to accommodate those outside with umbrellas and moving us to a covered stage area. The food is excellent. Well...More
