Best BBQ In Denver!!!
By far Southern Hospitality has the best BBQ in town! The ribs were amazing, fall of the bone! Service was awesome, so friendly and fun. We had desserts, could not pass them up, also amazing! What a wonderful experience!

This was my second visit to
This was my second visit to Southern Hospitality and both times it took 45 -60 min to get our food. The first time it was pretty busy so I wasn't so irritated but this last time it wasn't busy and we still waited that long. The food is good but the time to get it is too long.

Great food and drinks
This was my first time at Southern Hospitality and I will definitely return. They have great food, not to mention the bloody mary! And I can't leave out the fried pickles. Awesome!

We chose this restaurant for 3 reasons while visiting Denver. 1. Our daughter is a J.T. fan and thought it would be cool to eat there 2. We wanted to eat somewhere in the LoDo district which was close to our hotel 3. We are from Mississippi and wanted to try some Southern food since we no longer live there, we don't get it often. The atmosphere was great! My only complaint about that is that we all agreed the lighting was too dim. We could hardly see our food. The food was fair. I got BBQ and it was good. However, my husband and daughter got fried chicken which they agreed was very bland definitely not your typical Southern fried chicken. My son got hot wings which he said were the best he'd ever eaten. Overall, it was a good experience.

We were a little concerned about trying a new restaurant,-normally tet are still trying to work the bugs out. Not the case at Southern Hospitality-great food and service. Everyone at our table loved their meal! Cheese grits are delicious!

BEST IN DENVER
This is just the best food in Denver. I have been longing for this kind of food since I moved here. Deliciously seasoned comfort food. Deviled eggs, pulled pork sliders and fried pickles were a real treat. Ribs and catfish were wonderful and plentiful. Side dishes like grits and collard greens took me back to my childhood. The bread pudding and bourbon pecan pie were superb. Come with a hardy appetite.

This place is quite a find - their food is incredible. I won't be going here often because it's definitely a place where I would splurge on calories (you don't want to miss the Lodo Sandwich with slow roasted pork, smoked brisket, crispy bacon, jack cheese, pickles and sweet hot mustard on a french roll). However, when I do want to be bad, it's well worth it!!

Great Southern Food
I grew up in Atlanta so there are not many places in the West that serve grits. The shrimp and grits were outstanding. The used the stone ground rather than the quick grits which have more texture and flavor. The fried green tomatoes and fried pickles were just like home. Our waiter was helpful and engaging but not overly attentive. Excellent experience and I definitely will be back the next time I am in Denver.

Our group of 6 enjoyed our
Our group of 6 enjoyed our meals & the shrimp & grits I had leftover made 2 more meals at home. We were downstairs where it was dark & noisy. Little lights on the tables would have been appreciated for menu reading (candles not enough). We could have done without all the TVs & the music was a little too loud for conversation. The TVs seem out of place I the speakeasy setting, which is clever. The collard greens side is delish!

Great food - service was sub par though and they weren't even busy! Took a while to get our drink orders and refill waters, etc.

Great Downtown BBQ!
Southern Hospitality is just what downtown has needed, a great barbecue/southern/comfort food place. The food is fantastic and on top of that the place is set up well, has a good ambiance, and has a friendly staff. Hope this place is around for many years to come.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a great dining experience.
This was a great dining experience. Best fried pickles I have ever eaten! Our waitress was very knowledgable and friendly. I definitely would come back again!

Can't go wrong with a meat choice
Southern Hospitality has a nice, dimly-lit bottom floor where the noise is minimal. I had one of the best pulled-pork sandwiches of my life there and my friends all enjoyed their food immensely. I will be a returning customer.

Food was good. Not sure why
Food was good. Not sure why we were seated in the basement for lunch when the dining room was not even half full.

Hard to Find Southern Food
I enjoyed the selection of food. It is hard to find authenic Southern Fare. At my table we sampled the Fried Green Tomatoes and Deviled Eggs. Both were on the Happy Hour menu. For our entree, we ordered the Catfish Dinner and a Po Boy Shrimp Sandwich. The only criticism I have as far as the dinner was there were NO hushpuppies. All Southerners LOVE hushpuppies with their catfish. All the food was good.
My 26 year old daughter arrived first and the waitress was not very accommodating until I arrived. I think she may have thought that my daughter, who looks younger than 26, may be taking up an adult table. After I arrived and the waitress realized maybe there would be a nice tip, she was a bit more accommodating.

Had brunch with a bunch of friends and loved the place and the food. Great Southern food!

You walk in great open space
You walk in great open space greeted immediately stated I had a 6:45 reservation she asked MR. Lopez would you like to dine inside or out I chose in. Our server Ashley was very prompt and polite asked if this was our 1ST time here. What really stood out about Ashley was that when she asked if we wanted something to drink she started with tea and soda and not mention beer or liquor which I thought was classy. We started off with the “Crispy Buffalo Shrimp” which was amazing, For the main course we ordered the “Good Life Combo” which allowed us to sample the ribs and chicken and oh it was delicious. I definitely will go back and have told my friends coworkers about you. Thanks Robert.

the brisket was excellent
But i did not receive my points after dinning there. I made my reservation through open table.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and strong drinks
The food is what I expected, greasy southern style cooking. Our app cost almost as much as our main course which seems a little crazy to me. Drinks were strong and very good. Everyone was very friendly, service was great.

New gem in LoDo
What a great job in redecorating an old building in downtown Denver. Good old comfort food with items not found in other restaurants. Very good bbq, fried okra and fried green tomatoes. Our server Steven was excellent.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
WHAT? NO VINEGAR?
I ordered fish and requested malt vinegar. After I finished my plate, I told her she forgot the vinegar. At that time she informed me they were out. How can a soul food be out, or not even have, malt vinegar?
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was surprisingly good. Normally when I have tried celebrity-owned restaurants, I have left less than satisfied. This was an exception. We went for brunch and the amount of food we got for the money was worth it. I highly recommend the BBQ Eggs Benedict. Wasn't as thrilled with the biscuits and gravy, but everything else was really good.
Definitely a must try!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good night out....
The food was very good. Portions are huge - so sharing is a great idea here. Fried chicken and pulled pork were great. The spicy fried catfish was a little tough like the fish was not that fresh. However, all the vegetables were great and I would highly recommend the fried okra! Sweet tea is also served and is perfect. Just like down South for sure.
Very crowded and somewhat loud - but the service was good and I would go back again. We ate here before the comedy show at Impulse theatre in the Wynkoop and it was within walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our late lunch at Southern Hospitality BBQ. The atmosphere was perfect for a late afternoon lunch, the staff was friendly and always had a smile. Our waitress was just attentive enough to not be bothersome as my wife and I chatted about the day and some future plans. The Baby Back ribs melted off the bone and were delicious especially when adding the additional sweet BBQ sauce all over. There was a private dining room and private bar area downstairs that would be perfect for a late night gathering of good friends. Well worth the 1 block walk to 17th Street from the 16th Street Mall area.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in the down stairs
We were in the down stairs area, and it was great! - Really good barbeque and the bar downstairs looked like it would make a pretty good bar scene after work - we were there for lunch and shared a combo platter - it was really good and really southern style - a little pricey, but not too bad! -

We went on Saturday Night for the third or fourth time and each time, we have enjoyed the food and the experience. On a value list considering cost vs food-ambiance-service, it doesn't rate as high as many places in Denver but is worth your time to dine there. You can't find some of their offerings elsewhere.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
first time here - spent 20
first time here - spent 20 years in Austin - the beef brisket at SH - top shelf! best brisket tasted in Denver in the 6 years we've been here - salmon with bourbon glaze was fantastic - I'm not a salmon fan but this dish could convert me!

Great food and service!
I took a friend for dinner, we had both been there before a few times so I guess we are almost regulars, and for good reason. We shared the Bacon and Eggs appetizer, a cool twist with real deviled eggs, the kind mom used to make, bacon strips and tater tots on the side, great dish. My friend had the Prime rib egg rolls, as usual, she gets it every time. Server always tells us how they use the prime rib that they smoke in their smoker out back, delicious as always. I tried their burger topped with some of their pulled pork, awesome, and a big burger, had to take half home, which I ate the next day. Service was attentive and on top of things like re-fills and checking back, etc.. Thanks again for a great meal!

Tasty food & great, friendly
Tasty food & great, friendly service. They even have valet service. Lots of TV's.

Great food at a moderate price. Had a birthday dinner there and staff was more than accommodating, especially for a small place. Would go back again and recommend to others.

Great food, drinks need help
Food was great, service was Ok but no spectacular. The bar needs some help.When i ordered wine by the glass, ther forst glass was oxidized and i sent it back, they pursed a glass from a new bottle. When I ordered a second glass of the same wine, they obviously poured it from the old bottle, it was again oxidized. One of my friends in my group ordered a "dry" martini and it had so much vermouth in it you couldn't drink it. My advice: stick to beer

Best BBQ in Denver! True, true...
Four adults on a Tuesday night (October 3rd) to celebrate a birthday....we all got the gift of GREAT BBQ (Brisket, Baby Back and Spare Ribs, Pulled Chicken) - so unbelievably great that said four adults, took food photos at the table and texted-out, and the next day emails and texts were flying to recap how great the food and service was.
Plans in the works to go back and bring others. SH is now on our frequent list for out of town guests as well as our local crew!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nom Nom Nom
The food was excellent, by far the best BBQ I have ever had! The service was quick, and the staff was very friendly.

Amazing Service & Atmosphere
I was amazing by the wait staff. Everyone was SO kind and helpful. Server had great suggestions. The food came out quick and the drink selection is great! Def will be back!

1st timer turned to a repeater
1st time eating here, great service, server gave us lots of recommendations, food was even better than advertised. All meats were flavorful & so tender they fell right off the bone. Restraunt truly loves up to its name. Decimate return visit in the near future!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a pleasant surprise. Yummy comfort food. Fried green tomatoes and banana pudding were my favorites!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food but service lacking
Our party of four enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, fried chicken and mashed potatoes, fried chicken and waffles, fried catfish, and banana pudding. The food was outstanding, particularly the banana pudding, which was topped with caramelized bananas. That being said, our server was really inattentive. I wouldn't let it stop me from going back, but I would certainly hope for better service next time around.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter pick this restaurant for her birthday dinner. It was delicious!!! Everyone had a good time. We will be back. We had to change our reservation so we called the restaurant, the online wouldn't let us keep the same time. We have used open table for reservation in Las Vegas. Nice service. Thanks.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was! The hostess and waitress were perfect-they definitely made the dining experience perfect.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bbq/tater tots/fried pickles!
Who could ask for anything more? Also loved the fried chicken (lots of breading). We'll definitely go back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a group
SH was able to accomodate a group of 10 last minute. We were loud and demanding but the staff never made us feel like we were an inconvenience at all. Wonderful food (I split a plate and still took home leftovers), everything was hot, delicious, and more than we expected.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there to watch the first half of the Broncos with three friends. I had the Peaches and Waffles! Wow! This would be perfect for their dessert menu and I told the manager so. My friends all loved their meals too, Chicken and biscuits, hash, and eggs benedict. We go there often actually for dinner. Thanks again guys!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, friendly and fun staff
The food was excellent and the staff were a lot of fun
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and drinks were amazing. I had the prime rib dip and it was so good. The drinks were delish and strong. I will be going back again for date night. My husband had a sampler of fried chicken, ribs, and brisket. It was great and the portion was so big that he couldn't finish it. A rare thing! We also had fried green tomatoes. Delish! I would definately recommend this restaurant.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great southern bbq
If you are looking for good bbq this is the place. My wife and I are from the South and love bbq. All of our food came out super fast! A little pricey for bbq, but you pay for it being downtown. We will definitely return and try different menu items.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Southern Food in Denver
This place was a great place for my birthday dinner. The fried pickles were ok, I would go with the Brisket Eggrolls! The service was great! The fried chicken was very good along with the white gravy. The mashed potatoes were a little dry and the coleslaw was not near sweet enough to be southern! Great location downtown and great environment.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Deep fried goodness
If you like southern style cooking (ie deep fried), then you should definitely check out Southern Hospitality. The fried green tomatoes were awesome and I loved my catfish. However, they need to work on the BBQ just a bit. A dining companion had the ribs and while they were good, they were NOT fall-off-the-bone. You gotta have fall off the bone ribs!! We had a new-ish waitress (she informed us that she just got done with training) and she was wonderful. Not yet jaded and perfectly happy to be waiting on us. Overall, the food is pretty tasty, our waitress was amazing and our evening dinner was memorable.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fried Green Tomatoes? Yes please!
Some of the best barbecue around. Try the fried green tomatoes appetizer with bbq ranch dipping sauce. A bourbon list as long as your arm too? Justin Timberlake should be proud.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot for Memphis BBQ
nice little spot with a nice bar and good but small menu. everyone should be able to find what they like and find some new items to try from some traditional southern foods to some little known items to try!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
From start to finish, it was a great dining experience for Brunch. Leah, our server, was friendly, gave good recommendations, was efficient and fast. From the peaches with waffles to the Texas Platter and the bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Mary's, everything was delicious.
The Bourbon bread pudding was enormous and was enough to feed five. Will be coming back again!!
