The food was absolutely great. All their bbq sauces are homemade and there is a nice variety. They have amazing mac and cheese! The service style is different than the typical restaurant but it isn't bad, just different. I highly recommend this place if you're ever passing through town!

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Decorah. Have tried most of the options on the menu, and have not yet been disappointed. Especially like the dry rub ribs! Each dinner comes with two sides, plus a spicy cornbread muffin. Never a shortage for food, as the helpings are large. A great value! The staff is always friendly and service is fast. A nice addition to the options in this great little town!

This is slow food that is served up very quickly. The salads are great with any of the barbequed meat or fish served on top. The corn muffins are spicy and great. They serve home made desserts and the barbeque is is very smoky with your choice of 4 sauces. During the summer that food can be eaten in the courtyard outside.

Went to Decorah for a day trip, from Norwalk Iowa. While we have several BBQ places that are award winning and noteworthy in Des Moines. I loved the Old Armory BBQ!! The owner was running the place, very friendly, attentive and helpful. The food, yummy!!!. I had the potato salad as my side. It was the owner's mother's recipe. Delicious! Very fresh tasting, great consistency with the potato's and sweet thinly sliced pickles in the mix! My husband also enjoyed his ribs! He had smoked baked beans that were also very tasty, medium smoke flavor, chunks of bacon, great sauce. This place is really one of kind, and a nice must stop place to have a casual lunch or dinner. Great place, great service, clean atmosphere and delicious inexpensive food! I'd make a special trip for this place!

Stopped in for lunch, I ordered the pulled pork, which came rather dry, besides the fact of charging a Buck and a half for a fountain drink, and 2 additional dollars for each side, I found it nothing out of the ordinary , when you have to continuously dump BBQ sauce on the pulled pork there's something wrong, I suppose in a town that is very limited on Restaurants anything looks good.
