Tight space but the food is worth it. Note that when I mean tight space I literally went dominoes into the dining room chairs at one point. Not enough to dock a point, but I would still advise you to watch your surroundings.

It's most everything I love about a good barbecue joint. It's small and cozy. The meat was tasty and tender. The cole slaw was snappy and full of flavor. The best part of the meal was the beans. The worst? The sauce. The original was basically sweetened ketchup. The sweet, well, pretty much tasted like the original. And the hot was more of the same with a bit of extra spice. If only the sauces were exciting this place would be killer.

My wife and I enjoy our BBQ. We were driving through Cedar Falls on our way home and thought we would stop. Small place w/ counter seating. Your order at the counter and they bring food to you. Baked beans - amazing. Potato salad - out of this world. Ribs fall off the bone. Burnt Ends - to die for. Hot link sausage was too spicy for my wife, but the best I've had. Turkey at almost all BBQ places is dry...not here. So moist and flavorful!!! I'm not exagerating when I say this place was the best BBQ I've ever eaten. Thank you. Also, staff was great -friendly and helpful.

The burnt ends were some of the best I've ever had. The brisket was a bit dry but had plenty of flavor. The ribs were fall off the bone delicious with the right hint of smoke. The potato salad was the best I've had. The beans were different thats why they only got 4 stars. Tasted kind of like a chili. The cornbread was a fantastic finish to a great BBQ meal.

Great place! I don’t know if I’ll ever be back in these parts so I ordered a 4-meat sampler to try everything. Pulled pork is as good as it gets. The turkey is flavorful and moist. Cornbread is outstanding as are the sides. I loved the mac n’ cheese and can vouch for the fries. A nearby diner says the beans are to die for. Friendly proprietor and great staff woking hard to handle the lunch rush. Comapred to other BBQ joints the value is outstanding because the prices are fair and the portions are MASSIVE. You’ll have some take home as long as you don’t overeat.

Homemade recipes and small batch staples, made fresh every day. For under $10, you can feel like you just at a meal your grandma made you long ago. I would highly recommend Starbecks to everyone, and consider it a spot to take your out of town guests as well!

Quality food, very interesting location. As others have said, it's really more of a take out place due to its size. No need to call ahead because the food is ready quickly. Also, they don't sell beer, which is disappointing for a BBQ place. Ribs and baked beans were excellent, along with the cornbread. Sauces were nothing special, but friendly service and good food makes this a worthwhile stop.

Good BBQ to go or cater your event. The restaurant is NOT comfortable enough to eat inside! The bright orange tall chair/stools have the smallest seats, would have been better with out backs and left as straight up stools. The backs serve to push you off of the slippery seats. These chairs pull up to a rustic bar like area that barely fits your tray. Portions are nice and food comes out hot and fresh. Tastes very smokey and has lots of flavor.

I HIGHLY recommend Starbeck's Smokehouse! We purchased the large dinner to serve 4 to 6 people and we were very pleased. The meats were all tender with a great flavor. The fries were yummy; the coleslaw was creamy and good; the beans were spicy and delicious; the cornbread was moist and fresh! BBQ sauce is served on the side but the meat is soooo good without it! We also ordered two boxes of burnt ends which were very tasty. Our entire bill was about $72 for six people and a few leftovers. Inside seating is quite limited, so take out is recommended. Enjoy this gem of a restaurant!

We eat here on a weekly almost. That's how good it is. I am super picky about take out food. I have very high standards. So when I give a place 5 stars, it's worth going to. We get a family meal for 19 dollars. 3 meats and 2 sides. The pulled pork and mac n cheese are my favorites. I don't particularly care for the beans only because they are a bit spicy for me but my husband loves them. My 1 yr old daughter actually ate the food and she doesn't eat anything.

We went and the service was great. Good humor. I ordered 1/3 rack and 2 meats. Burnt tips and brisket. They threw in some pulled pork,too. Sides were Mac and cheese, and potato salad. It was all great except for the ribs. Ribs were ok. Needed to be a little more tender. They should fall off the bone. Corn bread was awesome. I will definitely go back. Just may not get the ribs again.

Great food, friendly staff, quick service, and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for? They have specials on Monday and Tuesday. Their cornbread, Mac and Cheese, potato salad, burnt ends, and pulled pork were all incredible. The only "disappointment" was that drinks (pop) weren't included with the meal. We will visit many more times.

I have been there a couple times and have yet to be disappointed. The portions are great and few options to choose from. I wouldn't mind a spicier option for barbeque sauce. You can't go wrong with the slaw. The beans are okay just missing that would make them great. Both times i got the burnt ends and really enjoyed. I went with a large group the last time and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. The cornbread is served with each meal and is very tasty. The seating is limited but I think it has great character.

I ordered the special that was going on. HUGE pulled pork sandwich (that came with no BBQ but instead gave you the option to put it on yourself with their various kinds which I LOVED because I am picky about how much sauce I like, but it didn’t even need any!) big portion of awesome mac and cheese & also amazing cornbread! All for only $6! Amazing food and great price. The owner checked on us multiple times and even brought out a side of fries with cheese sauce and pulled pork on it to try! Loved everything about this place, the decor is sooo cute. They made the most out of the small place and made it the best they could that’s for sure!

Overall, good. Large portions of everything. Brisket was a bit dry, probably was sliced then kept warm for easier serving. St. Louis Ribs could've used a bit more time in the smoker, good spice, and lots of meat on the bones. Hot Link Sausage was delicious! The skin had that crackly crispy bite that you want, spice was just right, and the meat was great. Pulled Pork was on point - moist and a little sweet. Mac and Cheese was packed with white cheddar cheese. Baked Beans were some of the best I've ever had mixed beans with ground beef, and a balance of sweet and spicy that was right between baked beans and chili.

I’m not a professional food critic , but I have had BBQ in Kansas City and in the heart of Texas . The ribs were the BEST I’ve ever had! ?Hands down ! Sauces were amazing !

This restaurant is definitely one of the best I've had in a long time. There are very few things I disliked. The mac and cheese is to die for and the fries are also excellent. The brisket is kind of dry, and the hot links are a little spicy, but the pulled pork and the ribs are excellent. They don't have very much seating and the staff could do better at cleaning off the counters they have. Another thing the staff could work on is communicating more. I was sitting there tonight when a lady and her daughters came in and said they'd had a to-go order. The owner knew nothing about it! Luckily the staff in the kitchen had it covered. Overall I was pretty impressed.

First time eating here and it was really good!! The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars was that we tried to order ribs and brisket, but they were already sold out at 6pm. However, it was family weekend at UNI and there were a lot of people picking up orders that were called in. What we did get was fantastic! Pulled pork, baked beans and Mac and cheese, which was the best I've ever had! Atmosphere is really unique, rustic and cute, but not many places to sit. Maybe someday they will expand and have more of a seating area?! We will definetly be back to try those ribs and brisket!!

He even let us sample a new food item that his daughter had created. He is very, very passionate about this place and you can tell just by how great the food, and hospitality is.

The dining area is so small, that even if you find a seat, you are cramped and in the way of other customers. The people are very nice and I hope they do well. This location is tricky!

Great BBQ. We had the pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, mac and cheese, and French fries - all delicious. The corn bread is pretty fantastic too. Fun, friendly service. The seating is a little limited, and the only non-bar-height tables are on a covered patio, so plan your visit accordingly. The good news is pretty much everything they offer travels well, so if the dine-in situation isn't for you, carry out is a good alternative.

We placed a takeout order, purchasing the Pig Out Feast meal to feed four adults and four kids. The service on the phone and in person was excellent. The portions were very generous! Everyone was full and we have ample leftovers. With the feast we were able to sample the ribs, pulled pork, burnt ends, turkey, and brisket. It was ALL EXCELLENT. Two people in our group said the ribs were a little fatty but two others said they were great, so it was probably just a random piece that was a little fatty. We had three sides with this meal and chose baked beans, mac & cheese, and coleslaw. Again, all excellent. The baked beans were a bit too spicy for our younger kids, but the adults loved them. The mac & cheese was stellar, and everyone loved it even me, and I don't generally like mac & cheese! The cornbread was soooo yummy!!! We even liked the barbecue sauce, but we had to sub something more mild for our preschoolers (which is to be expected). It is rare for me to find a restaurant with so many dishes on the menu that I enjoy. I told my husband he will have to work hard to keep me from ordering from them weekly! Oh and I have one "complaint" (more of a suggestion) The takeout bags were not sufficient to contain the huge feast, and we had to pull over to prevent a food disaster in the vehicle. Just pop the containers into a box or larger brown paper sack though, and that problem is solved. Very impressed! This is a fantastic addition to the Cedar Falls community. Obviously, we will be back!

We had three sides with this meal and chose baked beans, mac & cheese, and coleslaw. Again, all excellent. The baked beans were a bit too spicy for our younger kids, but the adults loved them. The mac & cheese was stellar, and everyone loved it... even me, and I don't generally like mac & cheese! The cornbread was soooo yummy!!! We even liked the barbecue sauce, but we had to sub something more mild for our preschoolers (which is to be expected). It is rare for me to find a restaurant with so many dishes on the menu that I enjoy. I told my husband he will have to work hard to keep me from ordering from there weekly! Oh and I have one "complaint" (more of a suggestion)... The takeout bags were not sufficient to contain the huge feast, and we had to pull over to prevent a food disaster in the vehicle. Just pop the containers into a box or larger brown paper sack though, and that problem is solved. Very impressed! This is a fantastic addition to the Cedar Falls community. Obviously, we will be back!

We stopped in tonight for our anniversary dinner. We knew it was a smaller restaurant, so thought a night with out the kids would be best. Although small, I really liked the atmosphere! We ordered plenty to be able to try it all! My favorites were the brisket, baked beans and corn bread! The employees/owners were very friendly! Almost everyone stopped by to see how it was and to thank us! It's very obvious they care about their customers and take pride in what they are doing! Thanks for a good night out!

We got take out. The burnt ends were very, very tender and good, but the ribs were a little dried out and tough and the BBQ sauce helped and was very tasty. The corn muffin was outstanding. Will try the brisket next time we are there or a sandwich.

Very wonderful first experience! Food was great! We had the brisket and pulled pork for meat. Both were great especially with their hot bbq sauce! LOVED the fresh cut fries and you get a large helping of them. The baked beans were my husband's favorite. They are more like a chili in my opinion as there are a couple different beans with ground meat and some kick to it! The service was fast and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely go back!

We ordered five meals tonight for two adults and three kids ages 12-16. Drinks not included. The place was busy and the help friendly. There's not much room to eat inside. We ordered turkey, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, fresh fruit, fries, and coleslaw for our sides. Everything was delicious! The turkey was amazing! The fruit was watermelon, grapes, strawberries, and fresh pineapple. Beans are spicy. The cornbread was moist and flavorful. We had a lot of food leftover. This could easily be two meals for our family. The only disappointment was the original BBQ sauce on the side. It didn't have a lot of flavor. It's pricey to eat here but the food was good. Service was good, too. I'm happy to support a local business!

We went there with really high expectations based on the reviews. We walked in and were immediately struck by the rustic charm of the decor and sweet smell of smoked goods behind the counter. The young man that took our order was polite and professional. However the food was the real star attraction. We ordered a two meat combo plus a 1/3 slab of ribs for my wife and I to share with fires and Mac & Cheese. The ribs had a wonderful smoke ring, nearly a 1/4" deep. The Hot links were juicy and had their own seasoned flavor. They can stand on their own as a meal. Then what I was most looking forward to, the burnt ends. In the South burnt ends are staple to any worth while BBQ joint. Here in the North they seem to be an afterthought at most establishments. That was until I ate Starbecks mouth watering tender morsels. They were a solid addition to our meal and may be the cornerstone to every meal I have with our local new champion of BBQ.

I had followed the announcement and buildout, I watched the first few weeks after opening an saw the reviews come in so I had high expectations.. and not only was I not disappointed.. I was even more impressed than I thought I would be. Between my wife and I we tried every meat other than the hot links and it was all amazing.. the stand outs to me were the burnt ends and the turkey.. the turkey.. oh my.. I'm not a big fan of turkey but I was amazed at how tender and juicy it was for being white meat and SO flavorful.. no sauce needed. The stand out side was the homemade mac & cheese.. creamy with great flavor and pasta that was still al dente.. amazing. Without question some of the best BBQ I've had, and I've had a lot.

Joe had the pulled pork sandwich. We both had the meals and it was AMAZING!! Baked beans, Mac n cheese, coleslaw, potato salad and we got a cornbread muffin. Not to mention, they insisted we each take a cookie too (free). ALL of it was DELICIOUS! And, they have a drive thru window!!! Flavors amazing, bbq sauces fantastic and service is stupendous!!

I've been eyeing this place for awhile waiting for it to open. I was quite pleased. I arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night. The inside is rustic and cute. There are orange metal bar stools, barn wood planks on the wall, an old Kent Feed sign, and other simple natural touches. It is a small dining space and it's more like bar/lunch seating. They do not wait tables. You order at the counter and if you want to stay and eat you grab a seat. The person who took my order was one of the owners I'm guessing. She immediately apologized and said they only had turkey and pork available, they sold out of everything else. It was 8pm so I was more than understanding. I ordered 4 sandwich meals. 2 turkey and 2 pork. They came with cornbread and 2 sides. We chose mac n cheese and the beans for all our sides. The other owner/possibly husband of the person who took our order helped her dish up all of our food. In a few minutes we were out the door. With a very genuine thank you from both of them. The smoked meats were fabulous. The turkey was juicy and flavorful. The smoked pulled pork was amazing and even had charred/burnt edges. Loved the meats. The sandwiches are served on slices of sourdough. The meat was so good we all ended up eating it with forks. They included a tangy BBQ sauce too. The beans were obviously homemade and were more like chili than baked beans. Still very good. They had a bit of a kick. The mac n cheese was good too. Very creamy and thick. The cornbread was dense and ok. It was moist and not dry. I like my cornbread to be a bit sweeter. The meals were $11 each. Not terrible but adds up when feeding a family. We will be back. I like to support local places. I will come earlier so I can get the brisket. That sounds amazing from one of the other reviews.

I'm a hard one to please when it comes to smoked meats. My boyfriend has a smoker and I compare all food to his. Most places don't come close but this place is fantastic! We tried the 1/3 rack ribs and 3 meats (brisket, pulled pork and hot links). Everything had a nice smokiness, ribs a spicy sweet sauce cooked on, hot links had a great spice and pulled pork smoky goodness. We tried all sauces and they were tangy, smoky and sweet. The hot one had a nice kick. We had 2 sides, the Mac and cheese and beans. Both were top notch. I'm a huge black pepper fan and had to add it to my mac and cheese but otherwise perfect. The beans definitely had a spicy kick to them. Loved it! Go here. You won't be disappointed. FYI if you call ahead and order, you can drive around the back and pick up your order without getting out of the car. Win, win.

THIS IS A MUST TRY PLACE. Starbecks just opened for business 08-14-17 and they have really proven them self with the food. The food is so good I've gone back for lunch the past three days. I've ordered the brisket sandwich meal twice and the brisket burnt ends once so far. The brisket is the best I have ever had in all honesty, they really out did them self. I could not get over the amazing flavor. Ive talked about the brisket ever since I've tried it. It has such an amazing taste it's honestly hard to explain how good it is, perfectly smoked, perfectly seasoned just all out perfect . Another favorite for me is there corn bread, some of the best I've had I could honestly go for a whole pan after just trying one. Another must try is the Mac and Cheese, very creamy, cheesy, noodles are cooked right you will be glad you tried them. Apart from the amazing food they did an amazing job with the decor and the remodel of the building. Last but not least the family and employees running this place seem like great people, very friendly and helping. If your looking for the best smoked meats and corn bread around this is your place, you will not regret it. Guaranteed you will be back.

We didn't have a chance to try what we really would have wanted to because they were so busy on opening day that they were out of almost everything - but I take that as a good sign. Anyways, the fried chicken was very good & I loved the baked beans. Very much looking forward to trying it again!

Burnt ends sandwich had great flavor! I really liked the bread, great touch. Homemade fries are always a win as well.

Yummy! Loved the burnt ends sandwich. They were pretty busy and still offered prompt, friendly service without a long wait time for our food. Will definitely be returning!

Unfortunately we were too late in the day to try this restaurant. We showed up about 6:45 p.m. front door was open but nobody to great us. We grabbed menus and enjoyed the smells of what we hoped to be a great tasting dinner. We sat for about 5 min and someone appeared from the back just to notify us they were completely out of food. I can understand this being the opening day and underestimating the overwhelming support of a new restaurant. We will be back and hope the next visit we will have the opportunity to taste the food because the smells are what are bringing us back. Edit: returned to try it today and all I can say is outstanding! The burnt ends are some of the best I have had. The ribs are perfect and the hotlinks well you have to try for yourself!

Excellent ribs. Great sides (Mac and cheese, coleslaw) and the cornbread was outstanding!! Next time I hope to try the brisket and burnt ends, they were out before dinner time.

A place we needed for a long time. The brisket is an absolute must try, I would personally say its the best around. The mac and cheese is full of flavor a great side that will not disappoint. As for the corn bread its worth stopping in just for some. Will be making this a regular place for lunch and dinner. Review update-09/15/17 Stopped by last night to pick up dinner from Starbeck's Smokehouse, try to make it in at least once or twice a week ever since they opened. They remember my order every time I call in. Last night I came in to pick up my order, as usual friendly service, and a how have you been. I handed over my card, I was more then surprised to find out that they covered this and that my order was on them. I just wanted to let them know THANK YOU, not many places around anymore that care for there customers over profits. If you have not had Starbecks you must give this place a try not just for the best bbq in town but for the amazing staff they have here. Again thank you for being the kind, generous, amazing people you guys are. Ado-

Great food. Apparently a lot of other people thought the same thing - I was there at 4:30 to pick up dinner- and they were out of all meat except ribs and pulled pork. Also- opening day- the expected delays with everyone learning... but, really not bad. VERY nice folks. They'll get the mild service issues down, I'm sure. YUMM!!! We'll be back.

Pulled pork, my barometer for a BBQ joint, was excellent. Glad they're here and I will definitely return.
