Question Big Steer restaurant, closed?

I've driven past the Big Steer a number of times in the last couple of months and there wasn't a single car parked in the lot.

Has it shut down too?

A friend told me he ate there a few weeks ago. I don't think they open until 5:00 and I know they were always closed on Sunday.

Is this the one on Adventureland drive? Kinda of a brown building and not much decor on the outside? We tried to eat there years ago but other plans ruled. Have not made it back yet.

peace out. ironman

We drove by that area on Thursday and saw a new restaurant. Well, it was new to us because it has been well over a year since we cruised around there. Can't fully remember the name... Jake's Smokehouse bbq or something. There were a LOT of cars there but we kept on driving and saw The Big Steer and that place was PACKED. Not a single parking spot was available. This was around 2 in the afternoon.

peace out

You saw Jethro's BBQ. It is AWESOME! They have three (soon to be four) locations. The first one is by Drake and it is just BBQ. The second is in Altoona and also features steaks. The third is in Waukee and also features cajun. The soon to be open fourth will be in Ankeny and will also feature seafood. All of them have their amazing BBQ.
