Coming from MO and very familiar with the best of K.S. style and St. Louis style BBQ, we both agreed this was good, but only so-so in meat and in sauce. We had ribs and a pulled pork sandwich. There are only two choices of sauce. The sides were o.k., the portions adequate. The fellow working the counter was pleasant... More

Paul took my to-go order over the phone. A very pleasant sort of guy. They close at 8PM so I was happy that I hadn't misunderstood what can be ordered from their menu. The place is very rustic and clean. The staff is very friendly. I ordered Mike's Basket which is a BBQ sandwich, 2 sides and drink. I chose... More

I've definitely had a better pulled pork sandwich. The silence with no sauce is very flavorless, and the barbecue sauce that comes with it is strange and spicy (mind you I think most things are spicy)

Not into pork or beef, but the chicken, smoked just right, very tender, flavorful, is awesome. And during the holidays they do a "holiday bowl" with smoked-turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, cranberry jelly that is addictive to no end. Have been coming here for over ten-years (to KT's for prob. twenty) and the food has always been clean, good and for... More

Best BBQ in Boulder hands down. It's amazing no one else can even copy KTs! It's simple, great, barbecue. They have tangy sauce, a sweet sauce, and a super hot sauce, so something for everyone. Their sandwiches are to die for, however a large June bowl is the most filling, delicious, layered bowl of goodness in the entire world. It's... More

This used to be my one-stop shop when I was in graduate school. Now that I live in Golden, I don't get to end up here very often (I typically end up at the Broomfield or East Denver locations before this one), and consequently, whenever I end up in Boulder, I (1) get take-out, (2) get waaaay too much, and...

Wonderful ribs. Excellent chicken. Decadent brownies (or tiny key lime pies). On Wednesday, try the black bean chili. It's not for the faint-hearted, but it's scrumptious. Also tasty slaw and smashed taters and bbq beans; pulled pork; brisket; hot links. Three kinds of sauce (I prefer the thick and mild). They have two stores in Boulder, one in Broomfield, and...

We did carryout BBQ and the meat and sauces were quite tasty! We had the cole slaw and potato side orders and they were also very good. The service was fast and friendly. I will come here again with a smile on my face!

We enjoyed this BBQ while at a family function -- it was takeout -- and was it delicious! Not only were the ribs and brisket fantastic, but the baked beans and cole slaw were outstanding. We liked it enough that we ate at the restaurant the next day on our way out of town. Compares very favorably to Kansas City... More

Actually, in terms of where I go to eat, I realized that this is likely my favorite restaurant for my hometown area. I particularly enjoy the ribs, although I also frequently have the brisket and pork. In over 15 years of eating here, I've actually never tried the chicken. They keep things simple in terms of sides options, but I... More
