We stopped by Mason's on our way to the western slopes from Denver in July 2017. We both ordered the BBQ with cole slaw. I don't think it's hard to make good BBQ, and this wasn't it. The BBQ sauce was bland, as was the...More

The chicken was very tender. The flavors weren't our preference and the BBQ chicken tasted too much like vinegar and the potato salad wasn't traditional tasting. The BBQ chips were probably our favorite part of the meal as that was the only thing we finished....More

Family run and family friendly restaurant with spectacular scenery just outside. Wonderful service. Smoked meats include chicken and pork. A bit pricey. The beans and cole slaw were wonderful.

Average BBQ, nothing special. Very expensive, easily over $12.00 a person for lunch. Baked beans not very good.

Fallz-off-the-bone, perfectly done ribs and chicken. Great sides too, beans, cole slaw, and good white bread. And homemade cobbler! Amazingly good for Fairplay. Also, the owner does rocks and minerals and some folk jewelry with local stuff. Cool rock and mineral display in the restaurant....More

Sausage and ribs were good. Peach cobbler had just come out of oven and was delicious. It is a small place and gets crowded quickly.
