One of America’s most iconic foods is barbecue, but, as every barbecue aficionado knows, all barbecue is not the same. While each region claims to have the best, it would be hard to best some traditional Texas BBQ. Because of the tradition of ranching and various other factors, Texas was the perfect place for barbecue. Today, though, you can get amazing Texas BBQ, without having to go to Texas. In fact, the best BBQ restaurant, in the Denver area, Bennett’s Bar B Que, specializes in Texas-style BBQ dishes. That being said, it is not without a few Colorado-inspired additions to the menu. Whatever your specific BBQ taste, though, it is almost certain that you will find something truly mouth-watering to enjoy at Bennett’s Bar B Que.
Like all good BBQ joints, Bennett’s takes everything, from their sauces to their sides, very seriously. While everything is good, they have a large and diverse menu, so that they can have a dish that suits everyone. For instance, they even have added a gluten-free menu that contains all the delicious meats and sauces, but without any gluten-containing items. Furthermore, if you like spicy foods, for instance, they have a ton of options for you. On the other hand, if you prefer sweet sauces, you will not be disappointed, either. Since sauce truly is one of the cornerstones of a good BBQ place, you should sample their sauce, to know what they are all about. They even have three signature sauces, which can be purchased, in bottles. That way, you can add their delicious sauce, to your own wonderful BBQ dishes. Their traditional sauce, the Bennett’s Original 1985 BBQ Sauce, is a classic example of top-notch BBQ sauce. It is not too sweet, and it has a tangy twist. Their Colorado-inspired spicy sauce, is known as Bennett’s Colorado Kickin’ Sauce. It contains enough jalepeno to deliver quite a kick, reminding you that you are still in Colorado. Of course, not everyone can handle the spice. So, for those who like sweeter dishes, the Bennett’s Sweet Surrender Sauce. There is not a bar b que restaurant in Colorado with better sauces.
Of course, their sauces are only one of many qualities that make Bennett’s the great Texas BBQ establishment that it is. For instance, their meats are incredibly tender and smoky. This is partly because they use such good meat, to begin with, and partly because they slow smoke their meats for so long. The combination results in beef, pork, chicken, and sausage that will, figuratively speaking, knock your socks off. Though the meat itself is always the crux of the restaurant, when it comes to BBQ, Bennett’s does not neglect its sides and other entrees. In fact, there is not any item on their menu that does not fully live up to the standards they set, with their meats and sauces. Over the years, their menu has grown to become what it is, today. It provides a combination of great Texas BBQ and some local dishes.
