Description: 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:)

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.

This is simply the best BBQ in Colorado. The food is slow cooked forever and there hit and mild sauces are sweet and tangy. Go for the Dog House (no cheese) - its my Fathers Day treat to myself every year.

Staff was not friendly at all. Food was more expensive than we expected but tasted good. Overall disappointed. Had high hopes from the other reviews .

Absolutely love their barbecue. Meat is smoked perfectly. Try a big rib. Get a side of coleslaw and put it on your pulled pork sandwich with barbecue sauce. Family packs are a good value. Don't let it being in a strip mall deter you from visiting.

Bird Dog is a nice little place, clean, dog-themed, and they have excellent BBQ. The ribs are always fall-off-the-bone perfect, the turkey is fresh and juicy, and the brisket and hot links round it out nicely. Their sides are pretty typical of a BBQ joint, but they're always hot and fresh. The BBQ sauce is what sets them apart. Their regular sauce is really flavorful with enough kick to please my palette perfectly. Their XXX sauce is spicy absolutely not over the top. A mix of the two is really nice, too. It's my favorite BBQ place in the Springs.
