If there's one thing you can't have too much of, it's great barbeque.

For years, Denver lacked in the department of slow-smoked, succulent cuts of meat. But in 1998, that all changed. That's when brothers Chris and Nick O'Sullivan opened the doors to the first Brothers BBQ off Monaco and Leetsdale, which for people like me, has become a part of home.

I can't tell you how many graduation parties, tailgates, work events, and other large gatherings of people have been fueled by the ribs, pork, and chicken of Brothers, and I'd be embarrassed to admit how many gallons of their sauces I've purchased at King Soopers. 

Plus, it's one of the few places you can order a beef rib or two and hot links. How's that for a quick snack? But the real reason I love Brothers is the diversity of the menu and the uniqueness of the sauces.

Before Chris and Nick started the quintessential Denver haunt, Nick's automobile racing career took the two around the country where they had the opportunity to explore their love for the cuisine and sample a variety of styles. So, when you're eating at Brothers, you're not eating a particular style but rather going on a tour of the various BBQ regions in a motorsports-themed oasis.

And with 7 locations going strong, including one at DIA and one at the King Soopers in Castle Rock, I'd say it's still one of Denver's favorites. At the very least, I can say it's one of mine.
