Twelve human group members (and one baby) enjoyed a variety of house-made smoked meats, BBQ sauces and sides during our visit. Actually, the baby was too young to eat BBQ, but I’m sure the smells made her look forward to having teeth.
Mexi-Blues has some menu items I’ve never tried before, such as fried pickles!
The restaurant is owned by the Moreno family. LeAnn, one of the owners, told us how the family had come from Texas with dreams of opening a restaurant. Five generations had passed down a variety of recipes and it was time to bring them to the public!
“Everything is made from scratch in our kitchen,” LeAnn explained. “Nothing comes out of a can.”
We already knew nothing came from a can because we could taste the freshness of the meats and sauces. One of our number, a member from Oklahoma, pronounced it the best BBQ she’d eaten in Colorado Springs!
Mexi-Blues serves breakfast all day and you can get dessert too! In fact, some of our members did just that!
Mexi-Blues will be moving to a new space in a shopping center on Centennial Blvd. at the end of the month. Be sure to check their website before you go, but do go! The smoked meats and housemade sauces are worth the trip!
Just don’t tell your chickens where you’re going.
