Always a great place to go for lunch or dinner! The aroma of the restaurant as you enter is almost my favorite part of dining here... That wonderful smokey smell always makes my mouth water. All the meats they offer are really tasty and it gets better from there. Bird Dog offers three different BBQ sauces and a dry rub... More

Hard to chose menu! Everything is smoked. Worth a dedicated trip to this place if you're in the area. The beans were excellent. Ribs and brisket were favorites, as was the turkey. Enjoy!

Stopped in for a carry-out dinner. Ordered the quarter-pound brisket and polish sausage. The brisket was shredded and the sausage cut into bite-size pieces. I also ordered a side of potato salad. All tasted great. They offered a Texas toast, but I didn't want that. They also offered BBQ sauce - mild and/or hot, and I took one of each... More

This place is great! I usually get a pulled pork sandwich. My husband likes to get a meat plate. I love the okra!

Brisket and pulled pork completely lacked flavor and smokey goodness. They were so bland and dry that I had to douse them in sauce just to be edible. The 3 sauces at the table all tasted the same and the side offerings were pathetic - essentially multiple potato sides with okra or beans. I will give props to the guys... More

Husband and I had a great meal. We both had the brisket which was shredded rather than sliced. It was tender, flavorful, and NOT fatty. The portion size was generous. We had sides of cole slaw, beans, and fries, all good. Casual place with good food. We would definitely return!

I am by no means a barbecue purist, but this had to be some of the least flavorful smoked meat I've ever had. The restaurant smelled smoky enough, so you'd think they would have gotten some of that smell into the meat. Nope. Our pulled pork, brisket, and hot link were totally smokeless, flavorless, and somewhat dry. They had 3... More

Very friendly servers, and a good value. My wife, daughter and I got the family pack and have enough for another meal. Lots of real good BBQ. The turkey is moist and very flavorful, and the brisket is tender and juicy. All three of us were impressed.

Very good BBQ with basic selections. Food is great! Family, open type dining; nothing fancy, but, hey, you want good food; then it doesn't matter. Nicw, laid-back atmosphere. I'll go back

My wife and I decided to go to this restaurant tonight as we had a hankering for BBQ and we had never been to Bird Dog. The floor of the restaurant was dirty with napkins and other trash from previous patrons on the floor as we walked in, but we were greeted by staff. The employees were friendly and patient... More

Thank you so much for the review. Sounds like we need to tidy the place up a bit. I apologize for the conditions you witnessed. We'll get things up to snuff. Thanks again :) More

Description
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:)
