Roaming Buffalo Bar-B-Que

While many local barbecue joints specialize in Texas-style ’cue, when it opened in 2015, Roaming Buffalo quickly became a standout as one that roots itself firmly in Colorado culinary history, with pulled lamb, huge bison ribs and venison sausage. It also serves more traditional meats such as pork ribs and brisket, which are available by the pound, heaped onto sandwiches or on plates, with sides like smoked poblano cheddar mac and Southwest potato salad. Both the original and a second location in Golden are home to one of the best barbecue deals around: $3 sammies made with a mix of leftover meats smothered in barbecue sauce on a hamburger bun; check Roaming Buffalo's website for availability.
