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

You can always tell a good BB&Q joint not by the menu, but by the smoke from the pit. As soon as I walked in the door I was hit by that sweet smoky aroma. I had a mixed meat dish and was not disappointed. The ribs and beef was a tender as can be. I would highly recommend this... More

Just kidding Okies! This was excellent bbq although when we forgot to get to-go bbq sauce, the meat was a bit dry without it. We had everything - chicken, pork and brisket and all was fabulous.

We decided to get carry-out for our party of 3. It was our first visit for 2 of us. We chose to carry-out the Family Pack which feeds 4 - 8 people for $40. It includes 2 lbs of meat, we got 1 lb of pork spare ribs, 1/2 lb brisket & 1/2 lb turkey (all the meats were amazing).... More

Stopped by for lunch a little after the lunch crowd rush. The smell of barbeque in the parking lot will definitely draw you in. Bird Dog BBQ did not disappoint. I had the pulled pork plate. The meat was delicious. I loved the BBQ sauces. The lunch portion was a good size and the prices are very reasonable.

Not your traditional KC, TX, Memphis, or Carolina BBQ. They use oak wood for smoking, and offer a variety of sauces in styles from all the BBQ strongholds. Still quite good for Colorado Springs area, and a unique spot definitely worth the trip! Strip mall location and interior are bland, but that's not why you come here anyway.

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:)
