Have you heard the news? Colorado Springs (or more specifically, Old Colorado City) is getting a real barbecue straight out of the heart of Texas – according to the Colorado Springs Business Journal, Rudy’s Bar-B-Q is coming to town!
When we first saw a Rudy’s Bar-B-Q location in Texas, it seemed a bit odd. The combination of gas stations + restaurants doesn’t usually make for spectacular food, but in this case, the combination works. It’s hugely popular in central Texas, and in recent years has expanded to have locations in New Mexico and Oklahoma.
The Rudy’s in Old Colorado City will be joining two other popular barbecue spots in that part of town: Front Range Barbecue and Firehouse Barbecue. Rudy’s is slated to open in late spring or early summer of 2010.
Do you have a favorite barbecue joint in Colorado Springs? We’d love to hear in the comments!
