REVIEWS OF Bird Dog BBQ IN Colorado

Katherine V

We love Bird Dog! Service is fast and the food is always great. I've tried the turkey, pulled pork, and hot links and they are all excellent. I really like that they have a different lunch special for each day of the week. They make their own barbecue sauces which are awesome. My personal favorite is the wasabi one. It has just the right amount of kick to it. They have a military discount and a punch card for frequent visitors too which is awesome.

Virginia Phillips

Bird Dog BBQ, off Stetson Hills, is my go to place for food on the go. I have a ton of food sensitivities which makes eating out difficult, but Bird Dog makes is easy. They are locally owned, too! Their food is always amazing. The service is always good, too. They give Military discounts and love to our dog. :) If you are in Colorado Springs, go to Bird Dog and get some BBQ and maybe a brownie, while you are there.

Christina Fraser

The guys that work here are great! Upbeat. Helpful and the food is always amazing.

We ordered dinner for our wedding party from the location that closed, sooo I'll leave my review here?! The food was great and the kids were super nice and helpful when we ordered and picked up. Everyone loved the mac n cheese! The turkey was my favorite! Yummy!

Jason Williams

Best bbq in Colorado, love their food, great service, and great prices.

It's always great, never a let down. Never let a long line turn you away. Those young guys are working their tail off to get the line moving.

Super delicious food and super friendly staff!

Tony Pods

Best BBQ in town. Best sweet tea in town.

Bill Talbott

Very good place for ribs and anything else barbecue. The potato salad was very, very good. If you want barbecue then this is the place to go.


The shredded beef and shredded pork is sooo fantastic you hesitate even using BBQ sauce with the meat. The product itself is amazing and stands on it own. The BBQ sauce is a added bonus. Mac n Cheese is another bonus.

Carlo Tomaselli

Always great food, guys and girls are always pleasant.

John Mayer

Best BBQ in Colorado Springs! Love all their sides and entrees.

Geneva Amaya

Best pulled pork in town! Super friendly service, great prices

Ronald Wiliams

Always excellent food and service

Jean Bonetta

Love this place. They are like family.

A Prose

Good fast food bbq! Always get a lot of food for the money. A tad pricy and it’s a little more “fast food” atmosphere than I prefer. But, it’s good brisket and sauce and they’ll cater at a reasonable price.

Lizzy Lynn

Awesome BBQ and Great Staff@

Dan Phillips

This place is amazing. The food is amazing. This is what BBQ should be. The service is amazing. They take care of their customer. We come here often and if you like BBQ you should as well.

Rain Sugarhigh

Friendly staff. Food is amazing. Sometimes a long line. Only issue is it is not easy on the pocketbook. This has to be some good bbq. I've tried others and they're all top notch. Friendly wise they can't be beat. Price wise..I think would have to make this a every blue moon type of meal. Guys are super professional and foods fresh so kudos.

Henry Schmaltz

Food is fine. Management should update policies. Arrived today at 1:45pm to pick up a lunch special. A couple orders came in through GrubHub so the line didn't move and I had to wait for twenty minutes. By the time I made it up to order it was 2:05 and they told me the lunch special was over. Highly unprofessional and shows poor judgement. If you're going to enforce draconian policies like this, it should at the very minimum be "through-the-door by 2:00pm still qualifies".

Anke Stebbins

Best barbecue in town by far! Moist, subtly seasoned, and tender ribs. And the wasabi-q sauce is the perfect compliment.

Julie Arinsberg

Love the local vibe, and food. It's different than the usual BBQ, and very yummie! Staff is nice, and helpful. And it's clean!!

Logan Meyer

These guys are awesome, friendly service, and as quick as you get for fresh fried French fries!

Cory Davis

Really exceptional service. They aim to please. Some of the meats were a bit dry but I sauce them anyways. Sauces were good too which I feel is rare for Colorado springs bbq joints.

Jeff Guenther

Love to eat here normally, but ordered through grubhub and the order was wrong. Birddog basically told us to fly a kite and it isn't their problem and once it leaves the store they aren't responsible for the order. No cheese, no sauces with the meal not even the side orders of extra sauce. We could have dealt with getting the wrong order and would have gone to pick them up, but the attitude of the person who took our call was very dismissive.

joseph kayanan

Excellent service from the working crew here. The food is ok, but incomparable to the best TX BBQ.

Beth Sanford

Love this place amazing bbq sauce

Scott Tomlinson

Always good food at a fair price!

Domini Censner

They catered my sons birthday party i was very happy with there service

Tara Terry

Went into bird dog bc I love this place Was having a hard day Young man with dark hair and tattoos was the nicest and sweetest person made my day better To not be treated awful Amazing place love it Thank you guys

Kevin Lawson

Great food. Great atmosphere. Great service.

PL Liu

The brisket and ribs were pretty dry. Good sauce though.

Michael Dionne

I wanted to call in advance to place my order so that I could pick it up after work. They stated they do not offer this service. So I waited in line to place my order. They no longer offer pickles, you have to ask for them. In addition only two of their employees where wearing caps the others weren't, so hair contamination is an issue. Employees were looking for tips despite the less than average service. Bird dog has really gone down hill since last I visited this location. Not work the expense.

Sammy Reynolds

Excellent as always!

Billy Clay Myers

Obviously a lot of people like this place, however I am rating it as a born and bred Texan who just moved here from Tennessee. I also have never had "Oklahoma Style" BBQ before but won't again either. The brisket cannot be sliced. The excuse I got was that is was just so tender that it falls apart. My first clue should have been the brown baked looking exterior and NOT the black bark that every brisket I have ever had in Texas had. Brisket should be available both ways and can still be tender in a slice. Next comes the ribs. They were lacking in seasoning and again did not appear smoked. The sausage was shrunken and about the size of a hot dog weenie. Not a good flavor either. The best thing was the Peach Cobbler. The brownie was also not worth the calories. They have been voted best BBQ in Colorado Springs, but I am not sure why.

Meredith Hamas

Pulled Pork & Mac n Cheese. Just typing that out makes me want some! Love this place. I work a couple doors down so it's pretty dangerous. I want Bird Dog all the time!!

Peggy Hicks

We love this place. My husband is addicted to their food. He gets gift cards from friends & family for his birthday & Christmas. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is great!

April McCraw

Amazing fall of the bone ribs, great sides, amazing staff:)

Robert McClellan

Staff is awesome, super friendly and helpful. Not somewhere I would go to for food though.

Koda Chrome

Best BBQ in Colorado Springs, hands down. On top of the food, the staff is always great and friendly. The only place to go for BBQ in The Springs.

Mike Apsley

Food was good but the sauce made the meal

Zach Hosier

Best BBQ place in the springs. I always get the brisket and top it with their delicious BBQ. Out of the dozens of times I've been, it's always been perfect.

Chris Gooch

Simple good BBQ. Potato salad is a must.

Mark Glass

Great food and wonderful service! I love this place, my personal favorite is the brisket.

Andrew Smith

Slow service but overall wonderful food. It's not KC NBA, but it's the best we have here in the springs.

Patricia DePrefontiane

This place is great! Coming from Virginia I was missing my BBQ joint but I think I have found my new place! Good service, great portions, worth the price!

Ashley Mack

I inhaled my pulled pork and slaw sandwich! First time ever at bird dog, customer service and food we're great. We'll definitely be back!

Steve Chandler

This was great for take home mother's day BBQ!

Priscilla B

Excellent customer service ! Food was delicious!

Sabrina Bowers

This was my first time eating at Bird Dog BBQ. The hot line was incredibly messy and needed to be wiped down. The brisket slabs were out and uncovered. The food service worker poured and overwhelming amount of a butter substitute on my husbands potato. Why not use butter or not allow the patrons to see the container being filled from some larger container that was on the floor? Just a thought. Once we received our food we headed into the dining area which was infested with flies. The garbage cans are covered in food, over filled, the soda machine drip tray was filled with debris, the floors are disgusting and the condiments and tables were covered with sticky sauce. This restaurant should get a visit from the health inspector and have some serious training for the staff including gloves and hairnets before they get someones sick.

LaNae Lee

Pretty good prices for the amount and quality of food. The staff are friendly and patient as the menu can sometimes be confusing to others.

Shelby Bivens

Literally amazing! If I hadn't have been starving I would've taken a picture. The food was amazing.

Tony Shaffer

Smoked meats what else can you say, need cornbread

JT Fugere

Best bbq around. Just go here and you wont be disappointed.

Andy Field

Food was excellent but there is a wait and no phone ahead orders.

Lyric Smith

The food there is so good

Nathan Gallion

All the meats are great. Fried okra was good but let's get hushpuppies on the menu. I love all of the dog pictures people put under the glass on the tables.

Lindsey Salgado

The best bbq that I have had in a long time!!

Kevin McCumiskey

The food is awesome the staff is even better. Do not pass this place up

Sarah Anunson

Delicious food, fast service and friendly staff!

A Morgan

The turkey is my favorite. But for lunch, the baked potato with brisket is great!


I can't believe it's taken me so long to try Bird Dog. I finally went today and got the pulled pork sanwich with coleslaw. So yummy. Even better was the awesome customer service I received. Especially Daniel! He made my first time memorable. He is such a nice young guy. I will be back!

Calvin Burkhart

Nice little hole in the wall BBQ joint. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich, lots of good choices to choose from here! Homestyle/Southern style BBQ. Come hungry!

Kristine Hulet

Did not go inside so no comments there. Google gave us crazy directions. Food was good.

Dean Murphy

The brisket and pulled pork are excellent.

Chelsey Burgess

Absolutely amazing food and even better service. Went for the first time on my birthday and they didn't disappoint. The apple cobbler is amazing.

Gigi Lehde

Taste like Texas.... Where everything is bigger. So big I guess they made an impact in Colorado.

Jessy Smith

Love this place. The food is awesome and the staff was cool af. We'll be back weekly.

Duane Huck

Still good Barbecue. The baked beans are seriously sweet, might be a bit much for some. The service is excellent and very courteous. The location isn't real obvious so Googling it will help those unfamiliar with the area.

Richinda Ford

Love they Mac n cheese everything was so good

Molly McColm

Delicious, nice employees, we can't wait to go again!

Charlene Barnes

Good food and friendly workers.

Cody Fermoyle

I live in Lakewood, CO but was in the area and stopped in here for a quick lunch and was not disappointed at all!!!! Food is outstanding!!! The meats we're done to perfection! Great BBQ sauses to complement. The staff is some of the friendliest I have ever talked with. Make you feel like a good family friend who stopped over for some homemade BBQ. I will be coming back, even if it means I have to make a special trip. You can tell this spot is a favorite of many people!!

Christin Boicourt

This was doggone delicious! Smoked Turkey was paws down the best I've ever had! The service tonight was amazing! The four guys working were quick, friendly, and so helpful! First time we've eaten here, but I'm pawsitive it's not the last! I'll be back with picture of my dogs!

jessica Cabral

Excellent food, will definitely be returning customer!!!

Al Gonzalez

Great bbq, ok service. Forgot to give me French fries I ordered, but apologized and gave me two free brownies instead. Nice! I went at 7:00 pm, an hour until closing, but they seemed rushed. $5 discount for first time customers. Will give them a second chance.

David Legate

great taste !! low prices, but looked selection

Edward Iken

#1 favorite place to eat. Food is delicious and staff is friendly as can be. Cash discount if you like. Check them out.

John Hayes

The ribs are the best in the Springs! This BBQ joint is my favorite.

Steven Wauford

Excellent sauce, tender meat, delicious

Kevin Romero

Great food. Long line but worth the wait. Polite service and good portions. I would like for the meat to be warmer and have a stronger smoke flavor. Overall a good experience.

Jason Mogavero

Best BBQ in the city, not even by a small margin.

Nancy Nell

Going to miss this bbq place. One of the best!

Mike Anthony

Learn how to properly slice brisket.


The food is always good. Their pricing is comparable to other establishments of the same ttpe.

Chris Steffen

Food is great. But it might be the dirtiest restaurant I have ever eaten in. Floors, walls, cieling, tables all just layered with grease and dirt.

Brian Kinsey

Best BBQ in town. Period.

Linda Capeheart

Amazing Texas BBQ. But too expensive for us now. All alo carte.

Kristie Rhodes

Really great BBQ! I was stationed near Kansas City and am very familiar with great BBQ. This place really does BBQ well! I love their pulled pork and brisket the most. All of their sides are really good, but my favorite is definitely the fried okra! Decent prices as well. Parking is good and not at all difficult. It's in a safe neighborhood too. Staff is always friendly! Thanks so much for a good experience every time!

Sports Center

The brisket is bland and always overcooked. Little flavor or spices. The pork is only saved by the BBQ sauce. The turkey is probably the best thing here and it's expensive. This is a "meh", it's the best BBQ within 15 miles type of place.

yeet master

Fantastic food, awesome service ❤️ Our first visit from South Carolina and we loved it

John Orndorff

Good food, service was fast. Will be going back again.

Karta K

Best bbq in the springs imo.

Johnny Summers

Best BBQ in Colorado Springs...and I’m a Texas boy!

Gabe Rodriguez

Bird Dog is Delicious! All your normal BBQ fixins with a selection of sauces.


Good food good service. Seating is not very comfortable

DaNellie Rapp

A surprisingly well hid secret in Colorado Springs! This is hands down the best BBQ comfort food I have found in the area! I found this restaurant by following the heavenly aroma my nose picked up emanating from the restaurant. Even with the 20 minute wait in line, I was not disappointed at all by the food I received. Far from it! The smoked meats were perfectly done and melted in my mouth. The sides were reminiscent of childhood family gatherings. It was an absolute pleasure to eat! If I could give more stars for this one, I would! I will be back very soon

Lucas Fisher

I feel like John Wayne when I'm on my back porch eating bird dog bbq next to my bird dogs. Hashtag USA. Yeah. It's that good

John Houpe

I like this place for the brisket. I also like the macaroni and cheese because they use the cheese sauce.

cory serafin

Good bbq

Kristy Harris

Hands down! Best bbq in the Springs. I personally don't like overly seasoned dry rubbed to death bbq meats with sauce all over. I like to taste the meat instead of nothing but sauce and seasoning. Bird Dog hits that note perfectly with their moist meats and their tangy sauces... Been to most bbq places in the Springs and found many to have overly seasoned meat that's a tad bit on the dry side. Their service is top notch, even when they have a full house. I especially love the apple and peach cobbler as my "end of cheat night" treat. We've eaten almost everything on their menu and have "loved" everything. We have family in Denver who request Bird Dog whenever we come down to visit... That's good bbq!


My family went in on Friday night to eat. This was the first time we had ate there since they moved from the Briargate location and we were a little disappointed in the new location. just not as cozy as the one in Briargate and the food was just not the same. Still decent BBQ for Colorado but just not the same. It was not as clean. The servers were very nice but the location is just not the same. May be a very long time before we go back to eat there.

Nikita Schubert

Still the best BBQ in Colorado. Awesome daily lunch specials! And they cater!

Karmin Vanlandingham

Delicious food! Enormous portions, so be prepared for that. The staff is super friendly and pleasant. This is a great place for a laid back, tasty dinner!

Randy M Novak

Friendly, knowledgeable staff serving solid BBQ. We'll be back.

Logan Brodine

Great Local BBQ place! I had the chopped brisket and the Hot Links both were fantastic. I tried all 3 BBQ sauces which were great as well!

lacy gray

My all time favorite BBQ place in the Colorado. The food is always great and the service is even better. We are always treated like family here and it's a great atmosphere. Will always come back!

John Berg

Best bbq of the springs? Brisket tasted like roast beef no smoke flavor what so ever. Sides are not the greatest. Very horrible experience Rudy's is way better bbq.

Elise Thompson

Order at the counter. Family style servings as well as individual meals. Smoked turkey is good - tasty and moist. Have eaten here a couple of times and really enjoyed it.

Tony Seaback

coming from texas, i was really surprised to find such quality brisket up here. and the sauce is delicious

vanessa reyes

Best BBQ food I’ve had in a long time! The ribs taste amazing, the shotgun potato with brisket was so tasty! And the customer service was outstanding!

Deidra Roberts

It was really good food and great service. The only only problem was the dining room was gross.

Aaren Mortensen

Very good food, I would recommend to anyone. Nice staff, delicious food, and quick service. This place is a good food stop, or food outing...

Ava Kathryn Walker

Such a good find here in the springs! Have loved every single thing I've tried on the menu. The potato salad, fried okra, and apple cobbler are to die for. Whenever we have a BBQ with friends, we always pick up potato salad from bird dog.

Shane O'Connor-Avion

We had a great visit here! As a couple with a 3 year old, we got a whole lb of ribs with 2 sides and a drink! It was under $20 and we all ate good!! The staff was friendly and the music was vibing!

chris pinegar

Side dishes are very bland!!! Meat is ok but better with sauce

Kristin Duckworth

Amazing BBQ (try the smoked turkey, although you can't go wrong!) and great service.

Benjamin Langley

The atmosphere isn't amazing... but the BBQ is. This is some of the best brisket I've ever had. The folks behind the counter are super friendly, too.

Elizabeth Tibbetts

Food was pretty blah. Was unimpressed by the staff, no hairnets during prep... Husband didn't care for it either. We're from Texas so we know good BBQ. Won't eat here again. Update: to specify, the staff was courteous, however it was a bunch of teenagers or appeared to be very young, checking their phones, etc. The establishment itself felt dirty. Brisket was dry, they were out of Turkey, and bread options are buns or toast. I'm sorry if the owner is offended, I've just had much better BBQ than what we ate that day.

Garth Meade

Whoa!! This is some great BBQ!! The decor needs a little work...but hey, who cares when you're about to get down with some awesome ribs!! Love the sauces! Yeah buddy!!

Barbara Rumbold

Awesomely good! Turkey was so tender. Everything looked delicious! I want to try it all!

John S

Best BBQ I could find in Colorado. The brisket and hot links are my favorite.

Ellen Dodgers

Great food here at bird dog. Real meat made in an authentic BBQ Style They have tons of meat options and also serve sides. Like mac and cheese, beans, and potatos. They are a bit pricey but considering the flavor it is a great dinner option for the family.

John Haven

We like eating at a local Colorado Springs success story. This was their first location, they have added a few more. The food is good, the staff is friendly and helpful. Some times the wait is a bit long, but they do make your order as you wait.

Clifton Vargas

Really good BBQ joint. Greeted upon entry, and given great explanations and even samples of all the different meats they have available. Have daily lunch specials. I am from Texas, and BBQ is a big deal down here, but you can absolutely not go wrong with this place. As with most of the places in Colorado Springs they offer military/veteran discounts.

John Culhane

So far the best BBQ joint in the Springs!

JC Cox

Service was fast and great! However the ribs and brisket were amazing but the pulled pork was bland and very very chewy, overcooked left me with a churned stomach at that.

Lauri Armstrong

We went in for a large order, since they don't take phone orders. We stood in line like usual, and it was amazing! A well oiled machine. They didn't even flinch at the size of the order and pulled it all together while I paid. They even helped me carry it to the car! I was very impressed and will definitely be going back for my special events! The food was incredible, as always! Thanks for a great experience, Bird Dog.

Gary Cibula

Bird Dog has the best BBQ in Colorado. They are always friendly and have easy parking.

Justin Johnson

I can honestly say that I’ve not had a bad dining experience eating here. From takeout to dining in the Bird Dog BBQ staff has always been polite and positive. Even my wife, who is not a BBQ fan enjoys eating here. I’d recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a clean family friendly atmosphere.

Kevin Morgan

Service was great! The food was great especially the peach cobbler. Would recommend to anyone who wants some down home BBQ!

Don Parkes

The food is good, but the service is lacking a little. They weren't ready for business with all foods which caused a lot of waiting - the place could use some cleaning and updates

Josh Lang

Awsome bbq

Eric Jackson

Great BBQ, some of the best in town!

sean thompson

Okay bbq, some options better than others. Miss the old commercial with the roller derby girls though.

Beth Goebel

Of what we ordered that actually made it to our plates was not terrible. When we asked where one of our main dishes had gone we were asked by the manager, "what do you want to do about it". Forgive me, I didn't realize expecting what we paid for incited a scene from a Clint Eastwood movie. It's basically meat covered in sauce. I guess its OK because there's nothing else in Colorado Springs. You're better off grilling at home.

William Green

Really good food

Rick Murphy

I've never actually eaten here but we dined in at the restaurant and it was ridiculous Li awesome food very tasty and the staff was super helpful and friendly.

Laura Smith

So freaking delicious. Not as good as famous daves but good in its own right.

Tyler Mebane

This was my first time here. Brisket has smoke ring, super tasty. Guy working the meat portion of the counter is halarious. Will definitely be returning

Karen Bowman

Excellent food and big portions. A lite pricy but worth it.

Kasey Boyter

Highly recommend! Love this place!

Ice Fire

First time into bird dog! It was really good i got the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and bbq beans on the side, so amazing, the tea was extremely good too, i wish i could just have a fountain of it in my house. I will definitely be back! Definitely know how to do bbq right!!

BK Mark

Our go to place for smoked meats. Everything is delicious, even the sides.

Shanay Jones

Bird dog is the best. I love that they offer discounts & loyalty. There is a guy there named Matt. He is so personable without being overbearing & he's so selfless I never knew he was a manger until one of the girls told me. He works the line & makes u want to return. They all are nice, but Matt is why I became a regular. Those ribs are decently priced & my go to when hosting or attending events on Saturdays I have to work & am unable to prepare a dish. They treat the military & elderly to discounts but even if you're neither, you can still get a discount for paying with cash. Bird Dog Fountain knows how to do business & you better get there fast before the line starts so that means the food is constantly moving staying fresh!

Jessica Murphy

Love their Shotgun Spud!!

Alec Morefield

My favorite BBQ in Colorado Springs. Not only is their food good, but their staff is always super friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied!

Mikey8 S

This place was great. Chicken, turkey, pulled pork, brisket, different kinds of sausages, and lots of different side dishes. All the food is really good if you like the smokehouse meal. I could enjoy going to this place all the time if I lived in the area. It’s just a small place, But worth the stop. You can’t leave here hungry. Oh did I tell you that they also have dessert!
