BBQ was great! Had to wait awhile at dinner for a table, but it was worth it. Even bought a jar of the BBQ to bring back to Chicago

Great food and not overly greasy like typical bbq places. We came here while on vacation in Estes and we liked it so much we went back the next night for dinner again! I recommend the family-style meals for a good variety, and the corn bread is delicious!

This was my first trip to any of these "Smokin' Dave's". They had chicken, pork, and beef brisket BBQ and other choices on the menu. It was nice that they had plates in different sizes. You can choose the one that fits your appetite. We will be going back!

While this may be the best BBQ you can get in Estes Park, it has nothing on Texas. We are used to our BBQ which is much different! But the brisket was super tender and the corn casserole was amazing!! Their sweet BBQ sauce is so wonderful!! The service was awesome!!

The food is great and the portions are generous. It is usually super crowded so we try to go at off peak hours.

My wife and I split the three meat dinner. I had the ribs and sausage, wife had the chicken. Had coleslaw and baked beans-amazing flavor. It was enough for two. We got there about 3:45pm, place was packed! We ordered Shirley Temple's that came in two huge glasses! Waiter was friendly. We highly recommend!

We had some of the best BBQ ever at Smokin' Dave's. The pulled pork, brisket and jalapeno cheese sausage sandwich I had was superb. My husband had the green chili burger, medium rare, and it was cooked exactly as ordered.

Thank Bobbie M
