Wife and I have visited 4 times in the past several months. Typically order 1/2 slab ribs but have also had pulled pork and fish/chips. The ribs and pork dinners are very meaty and large portions. Each table has bottle of barbecue sauce so no shortage of sauce. The sides are very good as well, including fries, cole slaw, potato... More

This is one of the best places to eat. The BBQ is great, the mac and cheese, my grandkids love. The burgers and chicken are awesome.

Food was good. When paying at the register Bruce took our card and we filled in the receipt with a tip. He gave us our receipt but didn't give us our card back. We didn't notice we didn't get our card until we got back to our city. We called about it and initially they said they didn't have it,... More

The food was great and each plate had more than 2 people could eat. The service was lacking. I got sweet tea but asked for unsweetened. Our drinks were never refilled My husband didn't get his fries. They ran out of chicken. We waited at least 15 minutes for our check not knowing and not being told that the checks... More

We try to support new restaurants in the area. By not reading reviews first they have the benefit of the doubt. This place needs help. The new server being trained would say "no problem" after every sentence. There was a "problem" since what we asked for in side dishes they "ran out of. When a customer wants hot mac n... More

I went into this restaurant for a take out order. Both BBQ sandwiches were horrible and we only ate a few bites. The sandwiches were just a pile of tough dry meat that had way too much smoke taste. One sandwich had BBQ sauce on it and the other had no BBQ sauce. The side of Cornbread was very dry.... More

We have heard nothing but great things about this place We also heard about the huge portions. We ordered the nachos and absolutely there was enough for the two of us. We sat outside and enjoyed a beautiful autumn day in beautiful Canon City. The food was great but I was also impressed with the food servers-- they were not... More

Had spare ribs and pulled pork, with corn bread, mac n cheese, and baked beans. Meat was good, but all three sides weren't. OK for quick lunch stop.
