A friend turned me on to this restaurant telling me he thinks it's the best BBQ in the Denver/Colorado Springs area. I think I have to agree with him. I had a half-pound pulled pork plate with fries that were freshly made and I found the pork to be just right. It wasn't greasy, but was moist, and no burned... More

Waiting in line was slow but well worth the courteous help in choosing our meal. Good choice of meats and sides, bottled beer only and soft drinks.

This is mostly a "take-out" place for us - I always order a pound of the (moist) smoked turkey. However I have ordered fried okra to snack on while driving home - yum!

We visited 2 locations of Bird Dog during our few days in CO Springs, this location was closer to our hotel. Both times the food was excellent. I really like their bbq sauce. I will definitely eat here next time we are visiting.

I stopped in for a bit of BBQ. You order at the counter and move down the short line to the cash register. The restaurant appeared clean, quaint, and definitely had the aroma of good BBQ.

I love lunch at Bird Dog, especially on Tuesdays when the special is the Smokehouse. I get mine with brisket and sausage, and load it up with the spicy barbecue sauce. My favorite side is the fried okra. YUM!

Have eaten there several times at both locations small in size but good service and good food would recommend. Family type atmosphere, every time we visit Colorado Springs we eat at one of them

Absolutely fantastic BBQ. Casual environment, friendly, down home style eatery in the north end of Colorado Springs somewhat hidden in the corner of the Briargate shops. Slaw is fresh and the smells from the shop are smoky and delicious.
