When compared with Rudy's BBQ and other Texas bbq restaurants this does not compare. No frills and rather pricer than it 's competition. Normal confusion to get to with the frontage roads system off of Highway 550

Great food with fun friendly atmosphere. My wife and I enjoyed a drink while playing mini golf. Fun for my wife and I while many others had their kids and families there enjoying the beautiful patio.

You must grab lunch at this spot overlooking the Animas River. Pulled pork stuffed potato is not to be missed. Baby back ribs come in a very close 2nd! Love the food and scenery from the outdoor deck!
