Howard's Backyard Pit Bar-B-Q
For almost 30 years this casual barbecue joint has been a popular mainstay in Colorado Springs. There is nothing fancy about it with its menu board and outdoor picnic tables which overlook a railroad yard, but then again that is usually the sign of a true barbecue restaurant. Try a full slab of ribs, or for something less messy opt for the sliced beef. The barbecue chicken is also popular. Beans and cole slaw accompany all meals. Take-out is also available.
Went to Howards the other night and stood at the hostess counter without even being acknowledge. The bartender must have looked at me 1/2 dozen time before I spoke up, Are you guys open?" Then, she looked at me like I was crazy. After 10 minutes, I just walked out. I have been recommending this place for years, that will never happen again. There were more employees outside smoking and shooting the breeze, than inside to service customers. For an awful dining exprerience go to Howard's Bar-B-Q.
Loved everything about it! Kind of hard to find , if you're not from the area, but well worth the trek. Besides, you're in Colorado! Driving aimlessly is not a big deal here! Always something gorgeous to see!
