Friendly Lunch

Always a favorite place to stop and eat. Great food and service. Also I really enjoy the view of the river while we sit outside and enjoy our meal.

Good Value and Good Food

Out of the chain restaurants in Durango, this is one to visit. good atmosphere, good food, and great locations, especially the one on 160 near the mall, mini golf, and along the river/trail.

This place was crazy good! We got a big combo plate to share. Everything was great very tasty! It was really busy. I think locals love it too! 2 locations in Durango. We went to the one on south end.

Awesome BBQ

First time in Durango and decided to try Serious Texas BBQ. The staff was most helpful in making suggestions and making sure that my elderly parents were taken care of. Now to the food....some of the best pulled pork and ribs I have ever eaten. The pork was moist and was seasoned just right. The ribs were flavorful and meaty. Enjoyed talking with the staff and telling them the only problem was they didn't have a University of Kentucky flag hanging from the wall. They were super. I would highly recommend this place for some Serious BBQ.

My wife and I ate here (North Durango location) and it reminded us somewhat of Rudy’s (which we like) in Colorado Sorings, CO and Norman, OK. Here is how I would rate what we had at Serious Texas BBQ relative to Rudy’s.

Like pork ribs, sausage (Meyer’s Elgin Texas Sausage), BBQ sauce (and other sauces/dips), pinto beans, potato salad and atmosphere better at Serious Texas BBQ. Also found employees to be pleasant and very helpful.

Like brisket (moister), turkey (more smoke and possibly less salty) pulled pork (moister), coleslaw and the condiments bar better at Rudy’s. Rudy’s appears to have more choices on their menu.

I like Serious Texas BBQ and I would not hesitate to eat here again or recommend this eatery to others. Me saying I like BBQ is expected but my wife also enjoyed her meal. The sausage and pork ribs are good. The pinto beans are very good.

We've been traveling the Southwest US for the last several months and have been missing some decent bbq. We finally found it at Serious Texas BBQ. Portions are large. Smoked baked potato with pulled pork was awesome!.
