Barbecue came to Colorado Springs in a big way in 2004 when Bird Dog BBQ opened its doors, and since then three more locations have opened in town and it’s been named The Gazette’s annual choice for “Best BBQ in Colorado Springs” every year since 2007. So what makes it so good? A focus on quality and dedication to serving nothing but great barbecue.

Brisket, pulled pork, turkey, ribs, chicken, hot links, polish sausage, and chicken tenders are the only entrées on the menu, along with a selection of sides and desserts, and by keeping the menu small they’re able to focus on making everything that comes out of the kitchen top-notch.

The founders call their product Oklahoma-style barbecue, and it’s all trimmed lean, smoked over oak (which has a much milder flavor than mesquite or hickory), and served with a handful of homemade sauces on the side (mild, hot, extra-hot, and wasabi-Q).

You can get your meat straight-up, but there are also some creative sandwich options, like the Doghouse (brisket or pork on an open-faced bun with beans, hot links, Polish sausage, and cheese) and the Smokehouse (brisket topped with a hot link), and the Bird’s Next (fries covered with beans, turkey, and cheese) is a house specialty. So don’t be afraid to get creative, and save room for peach cobbler for dessert.
