Wouldn't classify it as a fast food place, but they do serve food fast. Good BBQ - good variety - all the standards plus stuffed baked potato & a few other choices. Nice selection of sides. It is a walk through the counter format, not...More

While out school shopping with the little one my two girls started getting hangry so I knew I needed to find food fast. Rather than stop at one of the sit down restaurants at Briargate we came here for quick service. The meat was good,...More

Overall, food was acceptable and ribs were meaty. The sauce lacked any spice or interest. Staff was friendly. The peach cobbler was worth getting.

Bird Dog has several locations in town, and they also do catering. Their brisket and turkey are our favorites. Food is ordered cafeteria style and can be eaten there or taken home. They have their own sauces which are excellent. My husband's favorite meal is...More

Consistently good brisket and pulled pork, which we usually get as part of the family meal whether we are eating in or taking home. My kids also love the fried okra, which is good because that is certainly something I'll ne er make at home!...More

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...More

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....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...More

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:)
