    Baconfest® Co-Founder Brooks Reynolds Brings New Culinary Experience to the Iowa State Fair

    JR’s SouthPork Ranch is the newest outlaw to hit the Iowa State Fairgrounds, as a “pork-centric” restaurant, bar and enhanced food hall in the former Diamond Jack’s property. This is where appetites (and egos) are mighty, and palates are pushed to big-buckle proportions.

    The landmark venue provides services year-round with a new state-of-the-art commercial kitchen. Reynolds is partnering with the owners of Hansen’s Manhattan Deli and Greek House Chefs, a national chef-owned food service provider, to transform the space into a big attitude experience with a menu to match.
