Got sick and will never go back

Some friends and I were in the area and decided to drop in this weekend to beat the heat with some beers. It seemed fairly relaxed and we were hungry, so we ordered some food too. I got catfish and don't remember being that sick in a long time. Customers beware!

This place is a joke! The owner Walter Brown, NOT Hoss, has no clue to what is going on in his own establishment! There’s no order, no management, no anything other than the employees do whatever they want to do to fill their pocket with cash that they are most likely skimming off the top and not reporting.
Their food taste like they are getting it catered in from Golden Corral! I'd rather waste my money on a buffet in some poo dunk town where you can't even decipher what the hell you're even eating!
The bartenders are the worst, especially on Friday and Saturday nights! 30 minutes before I get asked what I wanted? It's too bad that I was waiting for someone and had to spend more time there than I wanted to, but once they arrived, I figured it best to leave nothing for my tab ($6.50 for a bottle of BL, are you kidding me!?!) The bartenders can obviously afford to NOT pay attention to her new customers!
The ONLY time I'll EVER be back is when that place burns down again and I'll be bringing my marshmallows for a good ol fashion smoars roasting!

Rip Off Alert

The owner is a jerk. The food is low grade and over priced. Don't waste your time and money on this dump.

Great BBQ all around

You will love this place. Ignore the bad reviews and remember there is quite a bit of local BBQ competition in the area and they like to sabotage on here.

The wings are the best in town and Hoss is a really nice guy, not actually a lunatic.

good bbq

I have had some really great meals here. The fried chicken can be phenomenal and really great ribs too.
A fun atmosphere and space and the best Guinness in town! Check it out!

The Owner is a lunatic!

The food is not bad, the service is terrible, and the owner is crazy. He'll serve bad food and then tell the customer to eat it anyway because he is always right. He screams at his staff all the time and he has no problem yelling at his customers. If the place was good he would be an eccentric,ut the place is far from good.

Not Good at all

Bar B Q was raw! Ok beans over priced and nothing nice. Will never go back. If you like this place you have never had real good BBQ. What ever you do dont get the chesse corn, thought it might be of the worst things I've ever put in my mouth.

Best BBQ in Denver!!

A true gem of a restaurant in the lovely Highlands neighborhood. Big Hoss offers a fun and lively atmosphere whether you are in the mood for lunch or a great dinner. I moved here from PA about a year and a half ago and though I loved Denver I longed for the great restaurants back east, that is until I ate at Big Hoss. The ribs are the best I have ever had! There is nothing better than having a pint of Guinness and a plate of ribs or fried chicken or pulled pork (you can't go wrong!) and don't forget the yummy cheesey corn and biscuits with mashed potatoes and gravy.....mmmm, mmmm good! Hoss has really put his heart and soul in the restaurant and it comes through in the amazing food, good service and great atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and check it out, you are in for a treat!

New Found Love for BBQ

Last week my fiance talked me into eating bbq which is his favorite, but I've never really liked it. He took me to Big Hoss Grill and Steakhouse. I was very thrilled about the wide variety of menu options and fabulous prices. We ordered the BBQ Shrimp and the flavor was to die for. This is our new favorite restaurant! Until now I had never found a bbq sauce that I enjoyed, but the Hoss sauce is amazing. The atmosphere was so welcoming that I can't wait to go back and see the smiling faces of the friendly staff, and of course explore the menu further!!!

Great Neighborhood Bar with Excellent Food and Drink Specials

I recently discovered this restaurant when walking by one early evening. The bar seemed crowded and there were multiple tv's showing all the NFL games I wanted to watch. The wings were the best I ever had and I know bird. Had some barbecue shrimp too and it was awesome. Went back the next day and had a cheap shot and a beer. Quite fun with the half chicken. Gonna keep trying it cause it was fun.

Best Barbecue

Just went there after watching football on Sunday. The barbecue is the best in the city and the beer was cold. Was there on a weeknight and had pork and ribs. The sauce was dynamite as well as the meat and the place had a good groove. I think Jason Sheehan from the Westword got it right. It is one of the best places in town. Waitstaff is cute too.

Always impressed!!

Big Hoss takes the cake for great food at even better prices! We drop in for both lunch and dinner at least a couple times a month. Everyday they have great specials, sometimes for as low as $7.00 a plate. The owner Hoss is often there and always checks in with the tables which makes us feel right at home every time. The wings are the best in the city and their pulled pork plate is to die for. The location is great and so is the atmosphere. With cozy booths, bright patio seating and a large bar, everyone has a place to sit. Big Hoss is a great find and we would highly recommend it to everyone!!!!

Horrible BBQ and even worse Service!- This place sux!

The BBQ here is absolutely the worst. I can't believe that people actually go here to get food. The service is terrible- the servers and bartenders are slow, rude, and unintelligent.

If you want really good BBQ go around the corner to Brickyard on 38th at Stuart. Now that is really good BBQ. Or go to the Tennessee BBQ joint on Harlan Between 44th and I-70. Those boys know how to smoke some ribs, brisket, chicken, sausuage..... mmmmmmm good stuff.

Here's to Big Hoss makin' Denver worst BBQ. Even Bennett's up off Wadsworth and 52nd is better than this place.

Very Disappointing

We were really looking forward to trying a new barbecue restaurant in Denver. We live near M and D's, which is one of the best in town, and are always looking for other barbecue places to compare. We decided to try Big Hoss after reading the editorial reviews. We know good barbecue and this is not it. The brisket was undercooked. The Saint Louis style ribs were so so. The only good things on two dinner plates were the bison back ribs and the beans. Nice atmosphere - not worth the trip.

The worst dining experience we've ever had. (Part 2)

I wanted to leave at this point as I had someplace i needed to be and thought this is too much effort to go through for a steak dinner. My girl said lets stay. The cook took the raw meat away and about 15 minutes later came back with two new steaks. These were still not medium or medium rare but at this point we were hungry and afraid to send the food back again. After eating the waitress came by put the check down and walked away. I was amazed to see that the check had not been adjusted even slightly for the ordeal with the meat. I called the waitress and asked her if there was anything she could do considering the ordeal we went through. She took the bill and said ?I will see what I can do"", after several minutes she came back and set the bill down and left without saying a word. I looked at the bill and it was unchanged. Keep in mind I had not asked for the meal to be taken off the tab, just maybe a glass of the wine taken off or something to compensate for a very unfavorable dinning experience. I called her back and asked if i could talk to the owner, she left and after several more minutes a woman named Sherry who said she was the manager came back and we explained the situation. Sherry then took the bill and said let me see what I can do after almost 10 minutes she came to our table set the check down and left. The check was unchanged. I was frustrated so asked my girl to talk to the manager after a couple minutes she came back visibly upset. I asked what happened and she said the manager was very rude to her but had said again ""I'll see what I can do"". Sherry then came back to our table set the check down, I looked at it and it was the same, she then said ""well you ate the meal and your taking a to go box home so it must not have been that bad"". We were taking the box to our dog. I've heard from friends they had a similar experience with the owner of ""Big Hassle Bar-B-Q""

Friendly staff, good taste but...

I have eaten at Big Hoss a few times and each time try the Carolina BBQ sauce and had to write. I moved here from Eastern NC and have worked at BBQ restaurants in NC and even have my own Eastern NC BBQ sauce that I make up. Anyway, anyone thinking they are experiencing Carolina flavor at Big Hoss are surely missing the boat! The sauce was some watered down vinegar and garlic cloves with what looked like a tiny bit of cayenne pepper... FAR from Carolina style! Carolinians take pride in their sauces and Hoss should do some research on the sauces from the Carolinas!
Basic Eastern NC sauce is: (the absolute BASIC)
Apple cider vinegar
Crushed red pepper
black pepper

There are some delicious ones that include more... If Hoss writes me, I will hook him up.

The pork was delicious and moist, his red sauce was quite good and flavorful and the beans are quite tastey as well.

We'll go back, but just for the red sauce.

Mediocre at Best

After reading about this place, we decided to give it a try late Friday. First let's say we probably stood for 5 mins at the wait to be seated sign, without anyone even acknowledging we were there. The bartender looked up but didn't bother to say a word and there were only a couple of patrons at the bar, so she wasn't busy. After finally being seated, we did receive our drinks promptly, but it took at least 10 mins for the server to take our order and the place wasn't that busy. I ordered the pulled pork plate and had them add 2 buck a bones so I could give them a try and my sides were baked beans and slaw. My husband ordered the 2 meat plate and ordered sausage and pork with a bone and his sides were the cheesy corn and slaw. First, all I can say that those who say this is the BEST BBQ they have ever eaten, must have eaten some really bad bbq to this this is the best. I will say the pork was good, but nothing spectacular and it was lukewarm to beat. The ribs were tough and lukewarm as well. The slaw was so dry, we wondered if they had forgot to add some dressing. The cheesy corn tasted like it had the powdered cheese on it that comes in box mac & cheese. This will be our first and last visit to this place. It was mediocre at best. IF you want some good BBQ, try the little hole on the wall at 4243 W. 38th Ave. called Brickyard BBQ. Some of the best you will eat, not fancy, but GREAT BBQ.
