Big Papa's BBQ - Closed

5151 S. Federal Blvd. Littleton, CO 80123 | Southwest Denver Suburbs | 303-476-6245

Location Description:

There's no grizzled old papa at Big Papa's standing watch over a hickory fire in the parking lot, but rather one giant Southern Pride smoker in the back. This little storefront outfit works fast -- and with barbecue, speed is made possible only by the intelligent application of technology and mass-production methods. The ribs, the brisket, the chicken and the link sausage all get hours of straight hickory smoke -- which infuses the meat with as much magic as any real pit smoker could -- before they're considered done, wrapped, packed away in the coolers, and then served with Papa's great sauces.
