Rustic restaurant with very friendly staff. Friday night prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes was worth the trip from New York. We stayed in lodge overnight too.

Stopped in as a family. Three of the four of us (all but my pickiest kid) loved the food. Great BBQ with a Mexican flare. Good guacamole. Very relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend.

This was an amazing meal - bbq + Mexican, but with care, inventiveness, tradition and awesome local ingredients. Nice cabin feeling dining room. Great margaritas too!

Located in the Tamarac Historic Lodge, the barbecue has a slight Mexican accent to it. BBQ ribs were excellent with a tangy sauce. Choice of steak and rib s BBQ, or Mexican dishes with a BBQ trang. Fairly reasonably priced.

Where we're from our local bar-b-que is literally award winning (Memphis in May) and Oso's passed the test. They put an interesting Mexican twist on their pulled pork and side items and everything was delicious!!! I particularly liked the jalapeño lime slaw, Mexican corn on...More

We stumbled across this place one evening as we were headed back to our rental cabin and it happened to be a Friday evening. Somehow or other they were able to find space for us right away, even though the place is so popular that...More
