This would fit right in any small Texas town: Katy, Luling, Luckenbach. It's a small place in a strip center, with real smokers parked on the side. The young lady at the counter was smiling, friendly and patient. We had no idea what we wanted,...More

Small place with good BBQ and fair pricing. The quality is very good, with selections of brisket, chicken, sausage, and two types of ribs. Sides are very good compared to other such establishments. So far, the best I've found around Denver.

I had the "clucks" chicken sandwich and they give you an extra side if you don't want the bread. My boyfriend had the ribs and hot links and everything was great. The green chili mac and cheese had just enough kick and the sour cream...More

The food was overpriced and the portions were small. Not friendly service either. My wife will not eat there again. I tried it a few times hoping that it would be better. Sadly, it wasn't.

Was looking for some decent BBQ in the Golden, CO area and found this "hole in the wall" place over off South Golden Road right next to a 7-11 and Laundromat. Doesn't get any "holier" than that - for sure. BBQ seems based more on...More

Got a family Groupon for this and drove down from Boulder. Food was very good but as a previous reviewer mentioned, seating is limited. This is a true hole in the wall grease spoon type place, and those are where you find the good eats.
