These Are 5 Of The Best BBQ Places In Iowa
We love food, particularly, we have a soft spot for barbecue of any kind. That's why we got very excited that OnlyInYourState put together a state-wide "Best BBQ" list.
Personally, I felt like I've had all the good barbecue in our state, but there's a few on this list that I never knew existed - and going by the comment sections, some of the people who live in these towns hadn't heard of them. Get your car keys ready, because you might find one that's not too far away from you.
Honorable mention: Pop's BBQ
Located just off of the downtown bar area of Iowa City, I always try to stop at Pop's when I'm in town. My favorite sandwich all around is a Cuban, and these guys make a barbecue version of it that's to die for.
Without further ado, here's what OnlyInYourState says are the best barbecue spots in the Hawkeye State.

This Muscatine-based catering and fast-food barbecue location is known for their pulled-pork sliders, and they'll make big enough orders for whatever function you're hosting. They're also known as the meat tray that Michaels stole from the radio station.
