“This restaurant has absolutely delicious food. It's very small, and the bar seating is even smaller, but it's a great little jem and well worth a visit. If you visit, imagine waist-deep (or higher) water streaming through the building from the back door right out the front door and onto Main St. The building, like many others in Lyons, was carefully rehabbed after a disastrous flood in Sept '13 that ravaged the area. It's location near the end of the street meant that it took a major hit as flood water rushed down the canyon and through town.”

“Very tasty tacos with an impressive array of margarita options (coin, hibiscus, and blood orange to name a few). They have daily food and drink specials throughout the week, check the website for details. This organization provided a free holiday meal for foster families in the surrounding area so they're pretty cool, too. ”

“Smokin' Dave's is on our top three list. But be warned that it is extremely popular and extremely busy. We would suggest ordering to go and sitting in a nice park to enjoy your meal. We will also let you in on a little secret, he has a restaurant in Lyons about 20 minutes down the hill that is usually much less crowded, and Lyons is a great little town to visit.”
