Can't believe this is my first time. I have heard about it but never had the opportunity. I will be back, again and again. Wait staff was great and the food was very good. Fun crowd and you will never know who will be there! Not too far from the State Capitol and my old stomping grounds.

The slices brisket and pulled pork were very, very good. Didn't even bother putting barbecue sauce on it! The smoked flavor trapped in the meat was good enough. Sat at the bar, the server Angelo was friendly and stayed on top of things. I'd come back.

The answer to the title of this review is that there is such a thing as upscale BBQ. The Iron Star is one of several restaurants owned by a company named A Good Egg Dining Group. All of their restaurants are excellent. The Iron Star BBQ ribs are meaty and tender. Also the Fancy Mac and Cheese is great. The... More

This place has really good food. The location is not the best and parking is an absolute nightmare, but once you get in, it is awesome. Very good non-traditional BBQ.

We went on the advice of a local friend and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is low key, clean and has a super friendly staff. The BBQ is out of this world. I had the pulled pork and it was fantastic. Nice assortment of sides too. We went for lunch on a Saturday and had no wait.

Iron Star has been one of our favorites for years. Love the whole fried Okra. BBQ and smoked meats are great as well. Nice selection of desserts to compliment the meal.

I kept saying WOW because it was that good! Both the melt in your mouth pulled pork & ribs with their unique spice rub plus hickory smoke were amazing! I even opted to not use the BBQ sauce as it masked the meat flavor! The sides were yummie too!

Specializing in fine dining with true smokehouse flavor, Iron Starr BBQ offers a unique and tasty spin on comfort foods.

In 2007, the Pauls opened their third restaurant, Red Prime Steak. Additional plans are under way for more Good Egg Dining Group restaurants.
