We found this Q-place in a strip mall. When we walked in the door, we were hit by the sweet smoke of the pit. Normally, I not a big fan of Q-joints in strip mall, but in this case. The food was perfect. Tender ribs and smoky sweet brisket. Yah, it was worth it.

Well I always go to Rudy's barbecue but this Bird Dog BBQ was close to my hotel so I thought I'd give it a try. When I walked in the smell of southern BBQ was awesome I was so excited to taste the smoky goodness. Well The Brisket was just ok at best but the turkey was fantastic. I will... More

A friend turned me on to this restaurant telling me he thinks it's the best BBQ in the Denver/Colorado Springs area. I think I have to agree with him. I had a half-pound pulled pork plate with fries that were freshly made and I found the pork to be just right. It wasn't greasy, but was moist, and no burned... More

Waiting in line was slow but well worth the courteous help in choosing our meal. Good choice of meats and sides, bottled beer only and soft drinks.

This is mostly a "take-out" place for us - I always order a pound of the (moist) smoked turkey. However I have ordered fried okra to snack on while driving home - yum!

We visited 2 locations of Bird Dog during our few days in CO Springs, this location was closer to our hotel. Both times the food was excellent. I really like their bbq sauce. I will definitely eat here next time we are visiting.

I love lunch at Bird Dog, especially on Tuesdays when the special is the Smokehouse. I get mine with brisket and sausage, and load it up with the spicy barbecue sauce. My favorite side is the fried okra. YUM!

Oklahoma Style BBQ...Perfected in Colorado. We have been voted Best BBQ in Colorado Springs every year since 2007! A true Colorado original, Bird Dog can be described using one word...different. Be it our cooking techniques, our house-made gluten-free sauces, our facilities, or even our name, we've taken every opportunity to zig where others zag. The result is a truly incomparable BBQ experience centered on the "BBQ un-snob". Bird Dog BBQ...what makes YOU different? *Just a FYI, we are sorry for the inconvenience but we do not take phone in orders, as we do not want to stop our line of patiently waiting customers to take an order and then again each time someone shows up to pay and pick up their order. Thank you for understanding:)
