Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great food, Avalanche beer (miss the Shiner Bock) and some open air eating with your neighbors. Great place to go.

“Great stop for BBQ near I-25 in the springs”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

This is a fun little BBQ joint off of 25 in Colorado springs. We stopped on a whim after a drive to manitou springs. The BBQ is simple and delicious and the lines are long, but it's worth the wait. You order at a take out station and enjoy your food at fun picnic tables located both inside and outside. If we're in the area again we'll definitely stop by

“Popular place”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Be prepared to wait in line for a while. The BBQ is ok but not the best I've had before. The sauce is too hot including the one that is supposed to not be hot. We ordered potato salad as a side and it tasted like it was from a container. You sit at long picnic tables along with other people. People are constantly getting up and hitting you in the back because there is not enough room between the tables in the front. We did order the cobbler that was great. It was expensive for cobbler, but we enjoyed it. We ordered the turkey and ribs. Everything is ala carte too.

“Great Atmostphere and Food”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

On a Saturday or Sunday in the Summer this place is packed and for good reason. The food is great, but the atmosphere really sets it apart. Very relaxed, reminds me of something more from Texas.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is an awesome restaurant for authentic barbecue! They serve sandwiches -- such as turkey, pulled pork, sausage, etc. with generous meat. You can purchase sides, like cole slaw, potato salad, beans, etc. It's a large facility with outdoor seating -- even a fire pit for cool evenings. It's family friendly, both atmosphere and price and very casual with picnic tables and benches. I've been to the Rudy's in Albuquerque, also, and this one in Colorado Springs is much bigger and newer. The staff is friendly and I've eaten here many times and plan to go back many more!
