Pulled pork and brisket were both good. Kitschy decor creates a friendly mood. Extensive beer menu, too.

This place is always crowded and one evening we even ate at the bar. The food is great, the staff is very good and attentive and appears to be a local favorite.

We ended our Estes trip at Smoking' Daves for a HUGE BBQ family feast. (Family of five.) We loved the food. Great service. We ordered the Family meal that fed five-six people. We devoured it. We loved it. We ate too much!

We had been to a couple different restaurants and even McDonald's after our bad experiences. We were told to go here and it was great. Wish we had found it earlier. We loved the food and service was friendly and quick

We arrived at 7 on a Wednesday evening and had an hour wait. We were texted the Yelp AP and hike we shopped a few blocks away tracked our progress on line. It was well worth the wait. Catfish salad delicious. Brisket extraordinary. Short ribs...More

There are a lot of options which might be gluten-free, but you would have to ask to make sure.
