Always a great place to eat & hang
Iron Starr is one of my favorite places in OKC. I'm often amazed it's not more crowded than it is. The food is great, the place itself is very cool, the staff are always friendly and helpful, and the prices are very reasonable. If you live in or near that part of town (36th and Shartel), and you haven't eaten there, you should check it out.

I had the ribs and brisket.
I had the ribs and brisket. Both were smoked to perfection. My sides were macaroni and cheese and French fries. The macaroni was amazing. Service was speedy. I would recommend this restaurant to any BBQ lover.

Not your run of the mill BBQ
I've been to Iron Starr hundreds of times. It's never been anything less than awesome. If you've never been don't expect your typical BBQ. It's BBQ elevated and twisted just a bit.

All of the reviews did this place justice! We made a reservation for lunch and got right into eat. Parking is a challenge - but worth it. Would recommend this to anyone!

On special occasions you may want to consider opening the back dining room to accommodate additional patrons.

One of My Favorites
The modern, cozy environment makes for a great night out with your friends or a date night. There is a nice bar, but the best part is definitely the food. I've tried multiple things on the menu, and it has all been wonderful. The bar area is not over-bearing, so it is safe to bring the kids although I wouldn't call it a family scene.
The steak salad is my favorite dish, and the fancy mac and cheese is also quite delightful.

First choice for great food.
I've been going to Iron Starr for years and I have never been disappointed in the level of service from the staff or in any of the menu items (and I've tried most of them)! If you try Iron Starr, you'll be hooked!

not the same old BBQ
Iron Starr succeeds in providing the usual ribs and pulled pork but adds innovative and well prepared sidess and appetizers. My companions enjoyed the deviled eggs, the moist cornbread, mac and cheese, and sweet potatoes.
Good BBQ is a necessity to survive in OKC. Iron Starr offers an alternative menu for those tired of the same old baked beans and slaw.

Dinner here was a new experience for us. We enjoyed the food very much. We especially loved our fried okra. We both got ribs, and I found my bbq sauce to be a tad to spicy for my liking, but we discovered...a little late in the meal but it made a big difference for me--I dont like any heat --so for most people I am sure it would be undetectable :) Our only complaint was that the restaurant seemed quite warm and that was uncomfortable.

Always great food
Great neighborhood eatery. The nachos are always great. The new salmon dish was excellent. We always have a great meal there. They always have local brews on tap and the cocktails are great.

Always a favorite!
We just love eating here! I've never had anything I didn't love. The Mac and cheese and the fried okra are out of this world.

I had a wonderful time at Iron Starr. From the beginning to the end. The food was great and service was outstanding! I will definetely visit again!

Iron Starr is one of the places we go to celebrate birthdays and special events. We love the food! I had called and made reservations for our party of 4 and our table was ready and the service was superb. We each had something different and we all shared. Everything was wonderful! To top it off, our waitress overheard that we were celebrating our son's birthday and gave us a $5.00 birthday discount! Wonderful gesture. She was very sweet and provided great service without being intrusive.
We'll definitely visit again.

Lived up to the hype!
Many of my friends had told me about Iron Starr and what an amazing place it was. My husband and I had tickets to Wicked and wanted a fun place to eat beforehand. I made a reservation for 6:15pm on a Friday night and I was so glad I did. We arrived at the restaurant and were immediately seated. It was already very crowded. Our waiter was amazing. He did not hover but was always refilling our glasses, and was perfect at anticipating our needs. We shared the cornbread appetizer, which was superb. I had the prime rib sandwich and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich, and we shared the mac and cheese and the corn pudding sides. Everything was delicious. We loved the fact that the food arrived quickly as we had plans later. We will be back!

Food was excellent and so was our service. The Bacon Wrapped Quail was outstanding. It had fabulous flavor and was incredibly tender. The Beef tenderloin salad was super as well. Great tasting with many great flavors that worked great together.
The only two things that I would have like improved upon were technical matters and had nothing to do with the food or service but: 1. the music and noise level were a little loud for my liking to be able to have a conversation with friends at our table. 2. the table space was too small. We had a table for four and with drinks and then an appetizer in the middle of the table and our small individual plates for appetizers, it was crowded.

Everything was great. The macncheese was fantastic. Service was really excellent. Will be making another stop here. Probably soon.

Prime rib kicks it
The reason we go is the prime rib, the best in the city, and second isn't even close. To finish up try the buttermilk pie.

Good night with friends!
We had a great night and dinner! Service was good, so was food! The music was way too loud, though! It wa quite annoying at times.........kinda weird choices of music, too! I will go back though!

We were a birthday party of 8 and treated extremely well. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and offered the birthday girl a dessert. The corn pudding was wonderful! The sweet potatoes were very good, too. Everyone liked their food.

BBQ for dining out
Most BBQ restaurants are going to give you the same experience whether dining in or taking out - meaning, there is nothing special about the service or atmosphere (unless you want to sit in the smokehouse).
At Iron Starr, you definitely feel like its worthy of dining out. And, there are some good smoked, and bbq meats given in variety. Even the simple "club sandwich" provides some good smoked meat, and skip the fries and go for the mac n cheese for your side dish. The bbq nachos are a very loaded and filling appetizer, too.

Our server, Kelsey, was the perfect server. We were celebrating my birthday and the food and drinks were great. Prices are always a bargain. We had a great time.

Nice spot for Sunday lunch
Our group chose to go to Iron Starr for Sunday lunch. We were there early and the place was filling up quickly be the time we left. All the meals were wonderful and the service was attentive without being overbearing. This is a favorite restaurant and we will continue to dine there.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spot on as always
We continue to come back and are never disappointed. My son was back in town and this was where he wanted to go for Prime Rib. Still the best in the city!

Order the tacos
Who would have thought a BBQ place would have wonderful tacos made from brisket? The brisket tacos were amazing! I'm going to be a regular on Tuesdays!

Good upscale barbecue
Iron Starr does a great job of improving the quality of food but maintaining good barbecue taste. Sides are very good, and portions just right. Service pretty good but a little slow.

We love going to Iron Starr!
We love going to Iron Starr! There were 4 of us and 2 of us received the wrong sides. We pointed it out to the waiter and he promptly brought the correct sides for each of us. We go to the Iron Starr for special occasions and have never been disappointed! The service is impeccable and food is special and delicious! I would describe the sides as "home cooking" with an updated twist. We love love love the food! I chose the ribs and they were so tender they practically fell off the bone. Kudos for a great dining experience to the Iron Starr!

I have liked this place since the first time I went there. The food is wonderful.

The food here is always great! The service is always fantastic and reasonably priced! I recommend this restaurant to everyone! I am kind of an Iron Starr groupie!

Hit the spot
Ironstarr never disappoints. From their great corn bread to their creamy Mac and cheese. Had whole fried okra for the first time and loved it.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I finally got to go on a Tuesday to hit their special of brisket tacos!! OMG, they were good. And I know it sounds weird, but my side was the mac and cheese. I can't go there without having that. It's the best in town.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
With all the good bbq meat on the menu, it's hard to pick just one... so don't!
Try the club sandwich, which is loaded with smoked turkey breast, chopped brisket, bacon, jack and cheddar on texas toast and includes their bbq aioli sauce. Add the mac and cheese as the side, and you'll have all the "comfort" you need.
