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!

On a recommendation we visited Iron Star on a Saturday night. It was busy. Two members of our group had the pulled pork sandwich and were not impressed with the cole slaw topping. One had a prime rib sandwich which was very tasty. Service was good. Slightly louder than we would have liked.

We went today for a late Valentine's Day dinner and had a great time. We had a nachos appetizer (it's HUGE and meaty!) before enjoying dinners of a combination plate and a sausage trio. Amazingly juicy meats. Recommend the collard greens and potato salad sides. Great service. On the pricey side but great for an adults post-holiday outing.

Went with big family group. This is a BBQ place. Order traditional. I ordered the Sausage Trio. I got a small number of sausage slices. I assumed that trio was 3 sausage types. By color I saw two and in any event all were bland. Overpriced at $13. Bad deal. My wife ordered the BBQ BLT sandwich - now that... More

The food was just average, I had the pulled pork sandwich with fries and my hubby had a combo meat dinner......Honestly my hubby cooks better pulled pork and ribs on his Traeger smoker. I'm from the south and LOVE bbq......this isn't it. The wait staff was great and was on top of their game. We had a great time, but... More

Loved everything about our visit. The food is over the top good. Everyone working helped each table. We never had to ask for anything. There was always someone checking to see if we needed anything. Good old fashion service here. Highly recommend you give it a try.

The food here is always amazing, and I can't help from ordering the veggie plate every time just so I can eat the sides--they are so good! We had a family group reservation for my husband's graduation lunch, and the restaurant staff was very accommodating--and we really enjoyed use of their private room which was spacious and quiet.

Great place to grab lunch or dinner in OKC. Plan to arrive early if grabbing lunch during the work week. This place fills up fast.

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