Food is OK, service is terrible. I'm a local and this establishment consistently offers very slow, indifferent, service. They force you to choose a tip value before the service is rendered and set the defaults at very high values. The service is worth a tip...of zero. My intention is to NEVER visit this establishment again.More

Pretty good chicken at this place! I ordered 1/2 chicken with tater tots and a salad. I was pretty stuffed. Healthy order of tots, large piece of chicken and tasty sauces. Also have local soft drinks with cane sugar. It had friendly folks and a...nice atmosphere. Watched olympics on TV. I would recommend if you’re in town.More

Took some time after ordering to get our meal, but it was very delicious! They also offered free video games to play, which my daughter enjoyed. Hope they may consider opening another restaurant in Colorado Springs? 🍗 😉

Our hotel across the street recommended this place, not disappointed. Good fried chicken, great Mac and cheese. I liked that they had old school arcade games set up inside as well. Pricing wasn’t bad either.

I went to Bird's with my family recently while on vacation in area. My in-laws live in area and they wanted to visit because had not gone before. The menu is very chicken focused. My wife had white chicken chili. Large portion but not much...flavor. I had the Banh Mi sandwich which was chicken. Sandwich was ok. Good selection for adults and kids. Large outdoor seating area. Very dog friendly.More

We live in Durango and have done take-out with Bird's several times during COVID restrictions and have also had dinner in the bar. Their food is simple, but excellent. I especially like the salads. Their staff is excellent--friendly and competent.

Only 1 table of customers when I entered to place an order of 2 fried breasts and 2 fried thighs. I waited in my truck. Girl said she would bring my order out. We ordered only fried chicken as we were planning to eat this...at home with our own sides. When we got home we noticed we did not get what we ordered. We got 2 fried thighs and 2 fried legs. They looked crispy as described on their website and the pieces were juicy but there is no flavor! None at all. I couldn't taste any seasoning at all. I do not recommend the fried chicken. I called the restaurant and told them we did not get what we ordered. Vanessa offered to give us a refund immediately but I suggested we get the breasts we were shorted and she agreed. I thought maybe the breasts would be better. No, the fried chicken is not good.More

We visited Bird’s twice on our trip. The food was very good and tasty. My 7 year old son and I fell in love with the Mac and cheese. My Cluck Norris was very flavorful. Others in our group also loved the biscuit sandwiches. We...didn’t try any of the rotisserie but had both the breaded thigh and breast. The only slight issue was on the second trip was with my wife’s chicken and waffle plate. The breaded thigh had a great deal of tougher, grisly meat. Another at our table had the same order and was just fine. We understand things happen and didn’t bring it up. I’m sure they would have offered another.More

We have enjoyed Birds restaurant since it opened. However, we picked up dinner tonight ordering favorites from past visits. The grilled chicken sandwich was shredded, mushy chicken, slathered in sauce. The usually great Mac and cheese was watery macaroni with barely noticeable cheese on top....The Big Green salad with “roasted” chicken was very small, mostly lettuce and kale with shredded chicken, I think, an over-ripe piece of avocado, two cherry tomatoes and a very small piece of pink, soggy, possibly canned chicken? We will not return.More
