Born in the heart of Dixie, two Georgia Boys moved to Colorado in pursuit of the Rocky Mountain lifestyle. Faced with being laid off in the midst of an Epic ski season, and not wanting to leave Colorado, they turned to their Southern BBQ roots. Chasing the American Dream and embraced by their community, Georgia Boys BBQ was born.
It all started in December of 2010 as a brown bag delivery service out of our apartments in Boulder, CO. Word quickly spread about us Georgia Boys, and we even started selling our “black market BBQ” in the parking lots of local breweries. With a little bit of luck and a gentle nudge from the local health department to find a real commercial kitchen, we opened the doors to our first location on July 1st, 2011. It was a tiny 100-year old house converted to a BBQ Shack reminiscent of the spots we grew up with in the South. Long days, sleepless nights and a whole lot of festivals later, we found ourselves bursting at the seams and looking to expand.
The 2nd location opened January 2014 in Frederick, CO and we were quickly embraced by the growing community. 2017 was a great year as well, we were declared the Best BBQ in Colorado by the Travel Channel; we moved into our newly renovated building just across the street from The Shack; and we were featured on The Travel Channel’s show, Food Paradise. Our 3rd location is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more grateful for the support of our communities, amazing staff, and all those who have helped us on this grand adventure. Welcome to our home.
