“Good Value on Lunch Specials”
Review of Bird Dog BBQ

Bird Dog BBQ
Ranked #192 of 1,467 Restaurants in Colorado Springs
Price range: $5 - $10
Cuisines: Barbecue
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:)

The food is really good but pricey...It is best to go at lunch when they have their Lunch Specials. The Loaded Baked Potatoe is a favorite in our family.

This is just what you expect for strip mall barbeque. Unfortunately, we are bbq foodies and preper the meat more smoky. I did like the creativity in sandwiches, and got a ginormous portion. We hail from GA, but prefer either Dreamland-esque sauce (high vinegar) or myself a carolina/ga mix. I would definitely go back, and would love to see more sauce combos. The pork was very tender and moist, and great for a stripmall facility.

Back in Texas my wife's uncle Harold set the standard for BBQ brisket. He made his own sauce, and he'd smoke that meat for about 24 hours...soooo tender and exceptional. He was the BBQ Zen Master.

Now, Bird Dog, as a commercial BBQ place, can't match Harold. That said, they do the work with loving care and an eye toward serving up good food and good value. Bird Dog delivers. Have had many meals here, always enjoyable experience. Selections, serving sizes, service...all rate 4+. Value is a solid 4. Quality of food is a 4, as sometimes the meats are a bit dry. Sides are often super hot and fresh (esp fried goodies). Dining room is noisy and can be very crowded feeling if busy, so I'll give it a 3. Cleanliness is a 4+.

Tip: The daily special is indeed a good deal, with side and drink.

Located in a nice shopping center this restaurant offers a variety of good BBQ meats. The prices are reasonable. If you are in a hurry their service is quick. Great food to take home in preparation for watching TV sports.

We went to the Briargate location on our friends recommendation. This is BBQ served as fast food, you order at the counter and take it to your table so I marked the service as average. The place is one step above a hole in the wall so three dots for atmosphere. Value was four dots for very good. The food is what this place is about. This is one of the few places where you can get BBQ polish sausage in addition to hot links so five dots for me. My wife had the brisket and enjoyed it too. Our friends had monster pieces of chicken. We enjoyed the sweet BBQ sauce while they tried the wasabi BBQ sauce. Overall four dots with the food outweighing the other downsides. If you are military, there is a 5 percent discounts except for one day (Monday I think) where you get a 10 percent discount. We would go there again.
