Re: “Phat Hatties Smokehouse BBQ

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Long waits. Pick up your beer as you go in and it will be warm by the time you get your food. Except for the brisket or pork sandwiches, everything is very salty. The meats, when good are great, but not always consistent. The sauces are rather tasteless...bring your own hot sauce to add some kick.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Great food and atmosphere. The meats are tender and true to expectations of Texas Smoked BBQ.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.

Best BBQ in town...the real deal

Re: “English Dockside

the best seafood in town is at Bonefish...the menu on this place's bad website isn't even tempting...and no lobster roll is listed.

Who wrote this review? Did they even go to the restaurant?

Re: “English Dockside

Always a tough choice to go here or not. By far the best seafood in the springs. However it will be an hour before you get your food, and the waitstaff will not check on you unless prompted. If Mr. English would hire a real staff instead of relying on family this place would take off.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good pulled pork sandwich with Mom's Corn and Pea Salad (think 3 bean with lots of upgrades). They have a great selection of beers on tap as well bottled brewery beers. Service is always great and it's a good family atmosphere. Yup, there's lots of kids. They are people too & generally better behaved than any most impaired adults.

We saw "Swamp Cabbage perform all original music. They advertise themselves as Blues band but that was less than half of what they performed. Not the best band I have ever seen at Front Range, but decent musicians in the Southern Rock tradition. Their equipment was not sufficient to give them a full sound and it's a small area that you have to fill with sound. They were on their 10th show in 11 days and had to drive from Ogden Utah but hey...that's the job. Bring it or take a day off. They seemed to complete their sound check during the first set despite having set up an hour before they started. Unprofessional at the least.

For whatever reason, Front Range gets lots of touring bands, blue grass, folk & singer-songwriters. Many seem to play at the Telluride Blues and other festivals the week before or after. So you see acts for usually no cover that people just paid $60 to see.

The best BBQ in the springs! Great food, great prices, and a drive thru. If you haven't tried it yet you need to go.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Some of the worst BBQ I have ever had and I know my BBQ. The brisket tasted like it was broiled in an over, the ribs were fatty and I'm not sure what the sausage was made from. The side dishes consisted of baked bean ( tasted like they came from a can) and potato salad (absolutely no flavor what so ever. The only good things I have to say was the portions were large and the service was good.

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

PULLED PORK IS EXCELLENT. I'm not a fan of their sauces but I always get mine to go and make carolina style mustard sauce at home.

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

We like their bbq. I love the pulled pork and the smoked turkey is great too. My husband likes the baked potato they cover with brisket. We've tried it all and like the meats. The kids usually get the smoked sausage. I'm not that thrilled with the sides. The baked beans are pretty good, but the rest I could leave it. There is always a line out the door here too.

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

I've only had the ribs here. I've had 4 slabs there thus far and all of them have been frick'n awesome. Meat is juicy and falls off the bone. I like their sweet bbq sauce and my wife prefers their spicy bbq sauce. Baked beans were great but the potato salad wasn't so great for my taste...but I'm hard to please when it comes to potato salad. I give Bird Dog BBQ 4.25 out of 5 stars :)

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

Im old school and grew up in South Texas & Louisiana where BBQ is made with pride. I enjoyed the flavor of the Brisket but it was a bit dry. However; the sauce is excellent and moistened it right up. Sides arent great but will do for Colorado. Chicken is a lil above average. I will return for more.

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

Barely adequate bbq. The ribs were tough and had little flavor. The brisket had very little smoke on it and the smoke ring (which you could see when it was sliced) barely existed. The sauce is ok but a bbq joint should not be rated by the sauce but rather the tenderness and flavor of the meat which was severely lacking.

Re: “English Dockside

We love this place from the PO'Boys to the mother of all hamburgers. We just wish the plates came with more of those SUPER FRESH and GREAT SEASONED french fries.
