Best BBQ I've had

Very good bbq restaurant. We took our three kids, who can be picky eaters, and we all found something we loved. The meat selections are served without sauce but there are bottles on the tables (or containers for carry out) for you to add your own (which is the way I prefer it). The meat was... read more

Very casual atmosphere but VERY GOOD BBQ. I have tried BBQ from North Carolina to Memphis to Kansas City to the Springs. This one is top in the Springs in my book and one of the top on my list overall. Military discount every day of the week. Pulled pork is always moist. Sauces are flavorful and the best beans...

We ended up there by accident on Mother's day. Every other restauran had a long wait. The chicken and pork was SUPERIOR. So yummy. My husband had a different beef something and he was super impressed too.

Late afternoon lunch today after a trip to nearby Focus on the Family. Extremely friendly and efficient staff. Food was excellent and served quickly. Chicken, brisket, sausage Anspaugh sides were all outstanding, good sized portions, reasonable prices.

The staff was amazing, the food fantastic, and the atmosphere was perfect! I had the brisket sandwich with coleslaw and fries and my husband had a pulled pork sandwich with potato salad and fried okra. It was absolutely delicious! They smoke all of the meat on the spot for hours on end and every bit of it is amazing! We... More

Located in a strip mall the stage is set. The interior is dominated by a black and white floor. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They suggested their brisket and sausage sandwich. It was very tasty but unfortunately the brisket was a bit dry. I had fried okra which was fresh from the fryer and coleslaw that was a bit... More

I stopped by here twice on my recent trip to Colorado Springs and was not disappointed. I had the brisket, potato salad, and peach cobbler and can recommend all three, especially the cobbler and brisket. I came back a second time and the staff remembered me from my previous visit, which was nice. I wish I could have gone back... More

We had never heard of this but were traveling and just looked up restaurants in area. OMG the ribs were meaty, tender and just excellent. Brisket a little dry but the bbq on the table really brought it out. I would go back in a heartbeat when in the area and I'm pretty picky especially when it comes to ribs.... More

This is authentic Texas-style BBQ. It is not a chain like Rudy's and several convenient locations to choose from in the Colorado Springs area. They continue to offer a military discount (10% M-TH) and 5% any other time. The food is fresh, the servers are friendly and we try to visit here 2-3 times per month. Also, good options for... More

They used to offer a 10% off military discount, then I think it went down to 5%, now no discount. That discount really helped when getting food for our family of 6. We love the food, we always get it to go and pig out at home. We just wish the prices were a little better so we could eat... More
