We go to Iron Horse for ribs and brisket every week. The aroma of the BBQ lures you into the casual restaurant. The staff is very friendly and service excellent. After eating delicious Texas BBQ for twenty years, thrilled to find this place. Our sons always want to come to Iron Horse when they visit. The dining room is decorated... More

We have eaten here several times. The fried pickles are awesome! So is the sausage, the turkey is so moist and delicious! Hubby loves the pulled pork and my son really likes their chicken strips. I love their Carolina sauce and usually mix a little of their hot in with it! Service is usually pretty good, no problems here ever!... More

We stopped in Atchison today for a Midwest BBQ here at the Iron Horse BBQ. We all had the pulled pork. Nicely smoked and not dry. I had fries and corn, good. My friends had potatoe salad, which was creamy and chunky. The cole slaw creamy. And, the beans where good with meat in it. We came in and then... More

Always excellently smoked BBQ, whether it's the succulent pork or the famous "smoked cheeseburger." Crispy fries and friendly, attentive service round out this Atchison gem. Watch out Willie's!

Growing up in KC you aquire high expectations for your BBQ dishes. This little place (hard to see) was very surprising. We ordered the family plate (no subsitutes) which came with brisket (didn't like how thinly sliced it was), turkey, pulled pork, 1/4 slab ribs and sausage. Four sides, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, krinkle french fries and two sides... More

I love the food at Iron Horse! I've never been a huge BBQ fan, but I recently found out I had a dairy allergy so I had to look for food options with minimal dairy. I started going to Iron Horse and it turns out I had totally been missing out! The food here is amazing! My personal faves are... More
