One of the best BBQ places in Austin. And a perfect low-key, no-frills environment.
The pork ribs here are top notch. Lines start forming out the door at 11:30am (especially during SXSW) but they move quickly. Iron Works is deceptively larger than it looks from the outside, trust me.
Brisket. You can choose de sampler with brisket, rib, sausage.
Authentic Texan BBQ place. Try the pork chops and brisket.
Legit BBQ joint on the river. Authentic venue. Good food.
Awesome! The original Texas BBQ.
Brisket and sausage were phenomenal! Creamed corn was great, too. Could've skipped the beef ribs, though.
Get the sampler platter. You will not regret it.
Get the sampler platter if it's your first time here - it looks huge but you'll eat it all and be happy you did.
Very authentic BBQ place! The atmosphere is great and very friendly. Try the brisket!
Hang out with friends at the long tables and get some brisket
This is the best sauce in all of the ATX BBQ scene. Takes the meat to a whole different level! Check this place out. Delicious.
Great ribs, less convinced by the brisket
Pretty shitty bbq to be honest. Was dry and cold. Go to LA Barbecue just near by and get the brisket. (Go before 1pm otherwise will be sold out)
Great BBQ that is way overpriced. The food was excellent and authentic, but a two meat plate with sides was $18 for lunch.
I don't eat meat but all the sides were really good.
Nothing fancy about this place..paper plates, very simple menu...but none of that will matter when u take one bite of the most tender beef brisket you've ever had. Use spicy BBQ or ur making a mistake
Had the Beef-Brisket plate with Mac-N-Cheese and Green Beans. The brisket was so tender, and the spicy BBQ sauce made it complete.
Barbeque beef ribs! None better to be found!
Authentic Austin restaurant with amazing brisket. Great atmosphere! A balcony with a view to a channel with turtles and fish. Love it!!!
Best BBQ I have ever eaten in my life. The sampler after is bomb, and the atmosphere is great. Can't wait to come back!
I don't know what the hype is about. Definitely not epic BBQ. The brisket is best bet but not memorable. I would totally skip the ribs and the sides are not worth the effort.
The sampler was great and enough for 2 servings
Great sauce here. Try the Brisket and the sweet corn. Grab some pecan pie as well, really good.
Ribs. I had ribs for lunch.
I don't get the hype. The beef ribs are full of gristle and fat. The green beans tasted like they came out of a green giant can. There r far better BBQ places in Austin.
Too many good BBQ places in Austin to pick favorites, for some reason this one made me feel most at home. Delicious BBQ sauce.
Get the table outside where you can watch Waller Creek.
so. excellent. the brisket. the pork ribs. the chicken. the pinto beans. the sweet creamed corn. the baked yam when they have it. plate > sandwich. ALL OF THE SAUCES!
Get a BBQ sandwich here, won't regret it! Throw coleslaw on top!
Ribs. That is my tip.
Get the Beef Brisket. Enough said.
Awesome meats! Can't go wrong there. Sides not that great though.
The Sampler is a must! Love the place. Got the t-shirt. #sxswqc
Get the beef ribs
Try the beef brisket with cole slaw and sweet corn salad. It's wonderful!
This place isn't very good. Everything was dry. Sausage was the best of the sampler.
If you're in the mood for bland bbq, help yourself. THis place does NOT represent Austin's BBQ.
Delicious brisket and pork ribs, but don't seat on the deck area, it's infested with termites on the wood floor!! I was wearing sandals and a lot termites climbed on my feet.
Don't sit out back! Ants! Damn good smoked sausage!
Don't go! Better BBQ elsewhere.
Enjoyed feeding the turtles after dinner.
Get the beef ribs for sure. They're simply amazing. Also the spicy BBQ sauce is a must.
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.
Try the brisket
Texas us about smoke. This is superior to all others
It's so good they regularly run out of meat
Great pork ribs! And when in Texas, try a Lone Star beer. Not bad. :-)
