Description
Specializing in fine dining with true smokehouse flavor, Iron Starr BBQ offers a unique and tasty spin on comfort foods. A Good Egg Dining Group was started in 2000 when Keith and Heather Paul opened Cheever's Cafe on 23rd and Hudson. They followed with Iron Starr Urban BBQ in 2002. In 2007, the Pauls opened their third restaurant, Red Prime Steak. Additional plans are under way for more Good Egg Dining Group restaurants.
