Before I tried the firehouse, I checked on line for all the reviews (as I usualy do for a new restaurant). It is funny to me that the only negative ones I found are from Indy readers. Could that be because the Indy. has trashed them from even before they opened. So, haveing eaten there now, let me be the first to tell the Indy readers and the Indy staff, "YOUR WRONG". For those who are confussed as to what "endless sides mean", please let me clearify it for you. Endless means there is no end. The Firehouse is the only BBQ resaurant, that I know of, in Colorado Springs, Co. that uses and actual outside smoker for true genuine smoked meat. Not like the other guys, that use pressure smokers and steam smokers. Thier meat is truely of the utmost quality and tenderness. They obviously know what "slow and low" means. Thier ribs are to die for. If you know how to do ribs RIGHT, you need no seasoning on them. It is by far the only BBQ in the Springs that you can eat WITHOUT sauce. This place opened in October I believe and they have far out grown thier location. I look for them to expand. The food was well worth the wait and it is obvious, they have a LARGE fan club. I talked to a few people that were there and they said that they loved the place and eat there often. And to the food writers for the Indy, I think you should do another review. This time send someone who knows true BBQ.
