An obvious home-town favorite, this is the place to stop for lunch. Not crowded (it's bow-hunting season) but food is excellent. The cowboy bowl is a little heavy on the beans but the meat was delicious. Recommend the brisket sandwich and the ham sandwich.

This is more of a Texas style Smoke house, The meats are all really good and the sauces is awesome. It is a Family dinning place so kids are welcome.

This is a kind of hole in the wall place. Very friendly atmosphere and pretty decent food. Their ranch dressing is so good, not your regular buy in the store stuff. With some sweet potato fries, yes please! My favorite was the French dip with...More

I know this is a BBQ place, but the fried chicken was the best we've ever had. BBQ was also good, and the service was great.

Going down the main street in Hotchkiss, dining options look very limited. Then turning a corner to see Zacks Barbeque gives hope - the place is busy, and the smells coming from the front door are heavenly. The decor is rustic but clean, and the...More
