The weather’s getting nicer, so many people are tempted to pull out their grills and start barbecuing. Others, however, would rather wait, and visit one of the many great restaurants in Colorado that offer up a mean BBQ. You might have to pay for it, but there is no doubt, at these five quality BBQ joints throughout the state, you’re getting way more than you pay for.
Obie’s Fillin’ Station
With widely positive reviews, Obie’s is a favorite in Colorado City. Visitors love the fun and friendly atmosphere. Just off of Interstate 25, the location is prime for lunch or dinner — or even during breakfast time, if you’re hardcore. For more information, visit http://www.obiesbbq.com.
B’z BBQ Company
For this restaurant in Colorado Springs, its tag as “award-winning” isn’t just a slogan, it’s a fact, and one that owner/pitmaster Brad Hammond takes very seriously. Hammond has brought home plenty of trophies and Grand Championships, but what makes B’z unique is that it doesn’t remain idle on its laurels. Most recently its Spicy Peach Habanero BBQ Sauce won second place at the 2015 Scovie Awards, a very competitive world-wide food competition, proving that it not only looks, smells and sounds delicious — it is delicious.

Start your meal off on the right foot, right in Louisville, with unique appetizers like sweet potato tots and brisket nachos. Then, be wowed by the main course, stay for dessert, and then go play games out back when you’re done. Patrons love the “chillaxed” attitude exuded by Lulu’s.

Smoke Modern BBQ
With a classy, yet fun and inviting aura, Smoke and its employees take pride in treating every customer like family. Plus, with locations in both Glenwood Springs and Basalt, there is plenty of room for you to come make yourself at home there. Not to mention, many say Smoke has the best BBQ west of the Mississippi.

Georgia Boys BBQ
This restaurant really has a homey environment, most likely because it’s located in a home. Georgia Boys in Longmont also has a very accommodating and friendly staff, an outstanding variety of sauces and burnt ends that are second to none.
