I went with the local favorite taco and it was my favorite as well. I am glad we found this little hidden gem on our route. I would make a stop next time without a doubt!!

This Serious Texas restaurant is not as good as the one in Durango but still very good food! I recommend the Texas Taco, this is my favorite. Very much so the best BBQ place in Farmington (not much competition, but still the best). Worth trying!

Food and service is great. I love the daily specials. I usually am not a fan of turkey but the smoked turkey here is awesome!

I've been going to all the locations of Serious Texas locally for nearly a decade and this was my first ho-hum experience. Delicious turkey taco was reliably filling, priced well and satisting. The girls who took my order didn't listen to my request for a turkey taco instead of the beef usual giant taco on the menu, so I had... More

I have a coupon for a Texas taco wow talk about big. It was good and had pinto beans with it they were good. This was my first visit. I might order the family pack next time.

We stopped in for supper while visiting Farmington. We were told the food was great. We did not realize this was fast food, they had a drive thru too. My husband had the ribs and they were tough and to me tasted like lighter fluid. I had the brisket sandwich and the quantity was great but the meat was dry.... More

I'm a Texas transplant to New Mexico and I had the first BBQ I can remember from the early 60's came from a roadside, tar paper shack in Corsicana, TX. HEAVY SMOKE flavor, sweet and/or sweet and spicy sauces plus some damn good beans. I doubt you'll be dissatisfied...

We will drive for hours out of our way to eat at a Serious Texas BBQ. Wish they would open in Phoenix. We eat here going and coming to Pagosa Springs every year plus at least a couple times at the Durango location right on the Animas River. Beautiful view and fabulous food.
