We stopped in here after a hike on Rabbit Mountain. The only disappointment was that I had been here before. Great staff, good tap menu, and AWESOME barbecue and sides. We learned that we'll have one close to home in Westminster, and I'm both excited and depressed. Depressed because I'm really going to have to start working out if a... More

We hadn't been here before, but due to a detour up to Estes, here we are. We were glad we made the detour! This is a cool place with a very neat bar and even the décor in the restaurant is worth a look. The bar attracts a lot of people, so the atmosphere is was lively and fun. The... More

We have the privilege to live in Lyons and Smokin' Daves is our FAVORITE place to eat. We have never had a bad meal and their staff is friendly and efficient. We have used them several times for catering and it's just as good. Their BBQ beans are the best I've ever had, all of the BBQ meats are really... More

Took my family to Smokin' Daves in Lyons as it was a longer haul to go up to Estes Park where we are most familiar with the restaurant. Food was hot, and served in a reasonable amount of time for my party of seven. We wanted to take new son in law as he's a huge Carolina pulled pork fan... More

We took our family, who was visiting from out of state, to Smokin Daves. It was a first for all of us. We each ordered something different, and we each loved our food! Thank you, Smokin Daves for creating a great experience for us! We will be back!

Don't get me wrong, their barbecue is quite tasty. However, the last few times I've been here, they've messed up some part of our order. I ordered a large platter of BBQ for a party, and when I arrived, I was told they were out of chicken, and they'd happily replace my half chicken with an extra order of fries.... More

Unquestionably the best food in Lyons. Outstanding BBQ (and I've spent 16 years in Texas), plenty of other menu items and a great selection of craft beers. If you only have time for one dinner in Lyons, stop here.

Came in for dinner and had a few great beers. Then ordered dinners. I had Texas brisket and my friend had a steak. Both done perfectly. Finished it off with another beer. Was a great spot in Lyons. Can't wait to go back
