[OPENING ALERT!] Iron Age Bringing DIY AYCE Korean Barbecue to Toco Hills

Iron Age Korean Steak House  plans to open their highly anticipated new location at Toco Hills later this month.  The 4,900 square foot restaurant, which ToNeTo Atlanta first reported was coming last July, was originally slated to open over the summer.  Like so many things, the restaurant's opening was delayed by several  factors not the least of which was COVID-19.  The restaurant, which replaced longstanding Toco Hills mainstay Famous Pub, is now due to open October 19.  (Hudson Grille was to open but later abandoned their plans to open in space before Iron Age.) 

The appeal of Iron Age, pre COVID-19 at least, was that it was a DIY AYCE (Do It Yourself / All You Can Eat) experience.  It's unclear what changes in service, if any, may be implemented when this new restaurant opens.  Given the service model and experience of the restaurant, Iron Age is among the restaurant concepts least adaptable to off premise consumption and delivery.  

The new Toco Hills outpost joins existing metro Atlanta locations of the Korean barbecue eatery including those in Duluth, Sandy Springs and Kennesaw.  This past June the company also quietly opened a new location in Buford near the Mall of Georgia.  The locally owned eatery also plans to open a new location at Halycon in Alpharetta.  Outside of Georgia, Iron Age has three locations in Maryland in Centreville, Rockville, and Baltimore and one in Annandale, Virginia.   

In Toco Hlls, Iron Age joins BurgerIM and Yumbii as new dining options in the center.  

Have you ever been to an Iron Age Korean Steak House?  Are you excited for the opening of Iron Age at Toco Hills?  When was the last time you dined in at a restaurant?

I visited the Duluth location once. I was not impressed with the cuts of beef, nor the time it took to cook a serving over the little fire in the middle of the table. And it was pretty pricey for all you can eat food, which I didn't eat much of since it took so long to cook. I don't see the attraction. Best wishes to them.
