Is it ideal bbq? No. But, it isn't bad for a weary traveler. I can't often find a bbq near my home with a Lone Star or a Shiner, so that was a plus. None of us like the cherry-chipotle salsa, but we loved the pulled pork and the Texas Taco! We ordered extra to take on the road!

Thank you for your visit and taking time to leave a review. I love your tip of traveling with a Texas Taco! Be sure to try our Orange-Jalapeno Mustard or Cranberry Habanero Salsa next time you are in. More

I travel to Durango two, sometimes three times a year and always make it a point to stop in at least one of their locations. I usually end up buying extra sauce and salsa to take back to Ft Worth with me- then order more from home when I run out. Good stuff!!!!

We ate at both locations on our last visit to Durango and the food was excellent at both locations. We had the tacos with the cheesy potatoes inside and they were excellent. I however do not like the potatoes inside, so if you pull them out and then load up the taco with their BBQ sauce - Fantastic! On Tuesday's... More

We are from the home of great barbeque, but when in Durango, this is the closet to heaven as we can get. Their sandwiches are spilling over the brim. They do not shy away from any of the fixings and have a wide variety of sauces to choice from.

Our hotel, the Knights Inn, recommended Seriously Texas BBQ which was three doors down the street. It really is Texas BBQ, It was rib night, and $1 a rib. I had three, and that was plenty. They were cooked to perfection! The sides were wonderful. I had the cheesy potatoes. My husband had coleslaw. If I return to Durango, I... More

When you come to Durango, you have to go to Serious Texas Barbecue. They have two locations, one on north main street and the other on the south side of town. For a nice setting overlooking the Animas River try the south location. The barbecue is great at either.

It's not bad for what it is. But it's not Texas barbeque. Nice people and nice atmosphere. If any of the meat was smoked, I'm Abraham Lincoln.

Usually you have to travel to Texas to get this good of BBQ. The ribs were falling off the bone and the beans were to die for. Beware they are rather hot but delicious. Great place to eat for sure.
