The Jewel of the Hood – I have been dining at M & D's for years and the services has always been the same. The cat fish and banana pudding is to die for. If you have never dined here give it a try and be patient because it is well worth it. If ordering BBQ get sauce on the side.
Best on the Eastside! – Excellent home-cooked ribs! The newly remodeled place makes a wonderful lunch or dinner outing. Service was extremely friendly. A.J.'s the man!!
Pretty Good – The food was pretty good. The barbeque sauce was bright red (my daughter thought it was blood and she didn't want to eat at first), a bit different than I'm used to-- in the south all our sauces are dark- I don't know- bright red just did not look very appetizing- ask for the rolls- they are great--The meal itself was better than most- just expensive- $50.00 for barbeque (for two adults and one child) is a bit much.. One thing you must try is the banana pudding--Homemade goodness..... And beware- even the mild sauce is hot..
Ummmm...good! – Overlooked gem perfect for casual lunch or dinner. Large portions of some of the best food west of Kansas City. Great sauces, good chicken, great fried okra. Make sure to get cornbread and not a dinner roll!
They cleaned the joint up! – It had been a few years since I tried M&D's. The renovations they made are top notch! I went for lunch and had the ribs tips and pieces with medium sauce on the side. I highly recommend getting the sauce on the side! The rib t/p's were very good. Almost more food than I could handle. As others had suggested here, I tried the peach cobbler ala mode. I should have skipped the cobbler as the cobbler was burnt. The ice cream dulled the cobbler taste (which, in this case, was a good thing). Service was average (I had to wait 5 minutes for someone to show up at the hostess station to seat me, there was no line and lots of open tables), but the waitress (Leah) did a credible job.
All in all, I would definitely go back, but I will skip the dessert next time.
BEST BBQ IN DENVER – Well I once would have agreed with the others in that the service USED to be awful at M&D's. My husband and I just ate there last night and the service was great. Our waitress, Leah, was the best. She took our order right away and brought ribs out fast. The medium sauce was just right in spicyness, yummy. Get the hot on the side if you are a daredevil. Oh so hot. But whatever you do, GET THE COBBLER. It reminds me of yummy southern cooking. I don't know what that lady was talking about in her review, she said it was less than average. She must not recognize a good cobbler when she tastes one. You gotta go. It's the best.
great food-baaaaad service – We live right near M&D's and have been going there on and off for years. The ONLY thing that enables me to even THINK about returning is the food. The service SUCKS!! The quality of service and attention to detail SUCKS!! It's good bar-b-que, great catfish. They've finally caught onto the 21st century and now accept checks and credit cards. We had such a HORRIBLE experiece there one time with the service that it's MIRACULAOUS that we've even returned, so I guess that says something about the quality of their food. It's very good. If you expect great service, DON'T GO HERE and especially, DON'T GO HUNGRY.
Now this is real Q! – M&D's is now reopened as M&D's Cafe after being closed for extensive remodeling. The interior is bright and clean and very well done.
The sliced brisket is tender and juicy, the sliced pork was delicious and the meat comes cleanly off the bones when you order the ribs. The chicken had a delicious smokey flavor. The medium sauce was a little too spicy last weekend, but our waitress warned us. You may want to order yours on the side to be safe. The mac & cheese side dish was very good as was the fried green tomato appetizer.
Save room for the bananna pudding. Perhaps the best I've ever eaten!
By the way, M&D's now accepts credit cards and has an ATM on site. So it's easier than ever to enjoy their delicious BBQ. Give it a try!
M & D's is the best – first of all I would say they are the best if you like REAL bbq. Sam Taylor's used to be good when it was at City Park Golf Course but now he boils instead of really grilling his ribs. Everyone knows that the best bbq doesn't need any sauce because the meat is just that flavorful.
The best. – Great barbeque sauce and beans. Noting beats the "small ends". Though I'm not big on desserts, I always have to have M&D's peach cobbler. Always consistently great food.
No liquor lunch, but you go there for the food, not to drink.
