Waterloo is getting a new restaurant, and it is one that might seem VERY familiar to you.

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.

The original location for Starbeck's is 6607 University Avenue in Cedar Falls. Earlier this year, the team announced that they would be opening up a new restaurant location in Waterloo.

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 can hold twice as many customers inside as its Cedar Falls counterpart.

Starbeck's Smokehouse in Waterloo is actually located right in the old John Deere Building.

The Waterloo location is now officially open for business! Starbeck's Smokehouse officials posted on their social media that the new restaurant opened its doors for customers last week.

Officially, their first day of business was Friday, July 7th. They will be serving the same delicious award winning BBQ that the eatery is known for in this brand new spot.
