Starbeck's Smokehouse has been a foodie favorite in Cedar Falls for years. The BBQ joint offers a selection of slow-roasted ribs, smoked pork, and "succulent chicken." All of these delicious dishes are prepared with various seasonings, sauces, and rubs.

Currently operating out of one location at 6607 University Avenue in Cedar Falls; this award-winning eatery announced earlier this year that they would be opening a second location.

This new restaurant will be located in Waterloo at 250th Westfield Avenue, just about five miles from the original Cedar Falls spot. According to reports, Starbeck's in Waterloo will hold twice as many customers inside as its Cedar Falls counterpart.

And...there's going to be a full bar at the second too!

Initially, Starbeck's Smokehouse was going to open its new eatery in May. Luckily, things are still going according to plan, and things will be good to go very soon.

The team behind Starbeck's confirmed on social media that this new location will be opening very soon. Most likely the new Waterloo restaurant will be opening its doors for the first time this month.

On Saturday, June 17th the owners said that it would be open in "the next 7 to 10 days!"
