This past summer, we went to Salt Lake City, Utah to Moab, Utah, and then on to Durango, Colorado. One evening, while we were in Durango, Colorado, we made reservations to go to BAR D Chuckwagon Supper to see the BAR D Wranglers underneath the summer mountain sky.
We drove through the entrance and it looked like your typical old west ranch. We were here to see the BAR D Wranglers perform their famous stage show featuring their unique songs of cowboys, the old west, comedy, and live instrumentals after an old-fashioned barbque supper. Meet the Wranglers here!
We saw this deer immediately as we drove in.
There was a chapel available for weddings.
We were able to ride the train. All of the children rode in the first car to take turns blowing the horn.
The mountain scenery was gorgeous!
Before the supper show, there were so many different things to do and see. You could ride the train, shop in the gift gallery, leather shop, blacksmith shop, chocolate shop, and even take home one of the cds from the record shop with some of the songs that they played that night. We purchased the set of the cds and had the box autographed at the end of the evening. You can purchase your own cd set here!
The supper entertainment was hilarious and so enjoyable. It was great sitting at the table with people that have been coming to see the show for several years. It was like being part of an old family reunion. There were visitors from across the country. They said that they travel each summer to visit their friends and come to this show at least two or three times a year. What fun!
For supper, you have three ticket choices. The Regular ticket offers a choice of sliced Roast Beef or Boneless Chicken Breast simmered in their famous barbecue sauce. You can make your choice while you are in the serving line.
The Combo ticket includes both Roast Beef and Chicken Breast.
The Steak ticket entree is a 12oz flame medium broiled Rib Eye Steak.
Each supper is served with: potato, oven baked beans, homemade biscuits, chunky applesauce, old fashioned spice cake, Cowboy coffee or real lemonade. This is pure family entertainment that is fun for the whole family. Alcoholic beverages are not served or allowed.
My apologies, we didn’t take any pictures of our supper! But it was delicious!
They will begin taking reservations for summer, 2012 on April 15, 2012. Click here for more information.
This wouldn’t be complete without a video of one of the songs! We laughed so much this evening.
