I don't think O'Malleys markets itself as a 'biker bar', and it's not at all scary like your stereotypical biker bar (sorry, Jeff, if you're trying to overcome that reputation). It's just that it's a favorite spot for Harley groups and such to road trip to. Especially on weekend afternoons in the summertime.

I'm glad someone mentioned the Front Range BBQ, Awesome food, I always take visitors there that don't want to go out to eat fancy or at the typical francises.

Does Front Range BBQ have the smoked artichoke hearts at the East location? 4935 Templeton Gap Road. We eat their occasionally because it's close by. I like the pulled pork, the spicy coleslaw is good. I like the little corn muffins.

I was worried about that. It does seem to do a hell of a business. I did not get a chance to eat there last time I was in the area. Does anyone know if Front Range Barbecue has an actual barbecue pit or smoker facilities? I ask because I know some people whom I invest with that are coming to the area to start up an old school barbecue joint, and any info on the competition is always good. Just wondering as to the authenticity of the place. I went to Charlie's Pit BBQ in Manitou and it was a joke, I don't know how they stay in business. Colorado seems to be seriously lacking in the BBQ department, from my experiences.

Bird Dog BBQ on Powers and Stetson Hills is pretty good. Their pulled pork sandwiches are really good and on Fridays and Saturdays they have BBQ Prime Rib. I had never had that before or even heard of it and I'm a native Texan! Lord, that that is good stuff.

Yes, we like both Front Range and Bird Dog BBQ places.

I think the area could use another place, especially on the north end of town, i.e., well north of Woodmen. Perhaps along Voyager Pkwy or in all the new development at I-25 and Interquest. There is a vacant Macaroni Grill on its own pad site on N. Academy a short way north of Woodmen, in that huge commercial strip across Academy from Home Depot, one of the busiest roads in the city.

Does anyone in the area have any sort of BBQ made from Bison?

There is a good place up North called Slaytons that is pretty good. Bird Dog is some good stuff but I have to disagree on Frontrange on the westside of town. It was good the first few times but it if something isn't consistent then I think the place losses some stars in my rating. Also there is a BBQ stand on the way to PeteAFB on the right on Platte after Powers blvd that has some good eating.

Yup, I just bought some of their 'mild' from Whole Foods, because the regular is way too hot for me!

Can't wait for Slaytons to open downtown, and King's Chef has another location, right on Acacia Park.
