If you are looking for a great, family friendly place in Snowmass to enjoy a traditional BBQ lunch then Sam’s Smokehouse better be on your list. Even for such a casual theme as BBQ you will still be provided with table service and a very knowledgeable and well trained waiter or waitress. The menu has many traditional BBQ items—from Texas brisket and St. Louis ribs to Carolina-style pulled pork. But the most-talked-about have got to be the ribs, which always seem to be smoked just perfectly.
The view at Sam’s is amazing, having one of the best places to view the mountain while enjoying a great lunch. They also have a great alcoholic drink list as well as some great espresso. Sam’s Smokehouse is one of the most popular lunch stops on Snowmass so there may be a wait getting in. So be prepared for that as well.
What They’re Known for: Sam’s Smokehouse is known for having some of the most delectable ribs and smoked meats in the Snowmass area. If you are looking for some great home style BBQ, then Sam’s is the place to go.
What to Watch for: Sam’s is only open from 9 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon which makes it great for a lunch stop, but if you were looking for an excellent BBQ dinner, this is not going to be your place.
