Iron Works Reviews

Add your review for Iron Works.

  • toppertx reviewBBQ places are hard to rate because getting a good piece of meat may depend on which part of the brisket is being sliced, or what time of the day you get there. The Iron Works is the closest BBQ place to my home so I eat here frequently. From time to time, I get dry brisket or ribs. But that is OK because most of the time it is moist and delicious. They serve huge beef ribs here. This is not a common BBQ restaurant item, but they season them to perfection and serve them hot from the smoker. Brisket is fine, but the sausage is a standout here. Sides are good, and they have some killer pecan pie. When firing on all cylinders, you won't get better BBQ anywhere.

  • Will K.This place isn't very good. Everything was dry. Sausage was the best of the sampler.

  • Gennifer B.Food is amazing! Don't expect a smile or decent customer service from the cashier; she apparently hates her life and anything that comes in contact with it.

  • Matthew C.I was really underwhelmed by the BBQ. It tasted like they had cut the smoking time in order to produce food faster. Maybe that's just because of sxsw. Rub was mild. Not much flavor.

    33333 by Matthew C.
