From the outside one would never expect great barbecue would be found in a nondescript strip mall. Once walking in the decor could be found in North Carolina. There is a full selection of meat items: brisket, ribs, chicken, pulled pork, hot links, etc. plus a full selection of side like corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, slaw, fried okra, etc. The food... More

It's difficult to find a BBQ place that has gluten free sauce, and this place makes a great home made sauce, free of gluten. I had the pulled pork, it was tender, and delicous!

I went to Bird Dog BBQ yesterday. Drove 15 Miles from downtown looking forward to outstanding BBQ. First of all..... The place is not too appealing. Old and dirty tables and chairs. Floors are on the dirty side. I ordered the 2 meat/2 sides menu. First the ribs: they had no taste and were on the hard side. The tips... More

We moved here from Texas in 2001 and missed good Bar-b-cue. We have tried all of the places in Colorado Springs and Denver and Bird Dog by far is the BEST. Some of the others are just OK but not close to Bird Dog. Their sides are great also and that you don't get at a lot of other places.... More

My daughter took me there for lunch for my B-Day. Having lived in Austin Texas for 5 years I was skeptical about how good it would be because as anyone who's been to Texas knows they do have some good BBQ. I even bought a Tezas style BBQ smoker when I came back home because I knew I could not... More

Not always the easiest places to find but well worth the journey. The service was great. a sandwich and a side will fill you up. A sandwich, a... More

My wife and I took my son and his wife along with their 1 year old to the Bird Dog for lunch. Three of us had the Pork House sandwich and beans. My sandwich was excellent and the beans were great too. The cost for 4 adults was approximately $40 and you don't need to tip a waitress because it's... More

So we came here because the reviews were great...but this place is not great. The place is FILTHY! And for the price (cheapest meal is 12.50) I'd never go back. The employees didn't seem to care much about the place, there was a puddle of water on the floor and my sons high chair was really sticky. There seemed to... More

Won't get it anywhere else! The hot links are the BEST! The pork is delicious. The beans are great! Its definitely worth the price! They make their own BBQ sauces as well.
