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

Real good bbq, a clean place, good friendly staff. Good priced daily lunch specials. BBQ pulled pork nachos, salads are great! Good place for a working lunch meeting. I visit weekly when working in the Atchinson area.

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

I have eaten here several times and have found the food to be very good. There is a great flavor with all of their smoked meats and their sauces are also well done. The restaurant itself is what I would call a hole-in-the-wall but you go there for the food. I highly recommend this place for a nice BBQ meal.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch as part of a Glacial Hills tour of northeast Kansas. We didn't want fast food, so we used the TripAdvisor app to find some other choices. On a side street, and not signed very well, the restaurant is a hodgepodge of mismatched tables and chairs, and doesn't really have much in the... More

My husband and I drove past Iron Horse BBQ twice while looking specifically for it. It's hidden in plain sight right on the street, but the sign is modest, let's say. I noticed the red neon OPEN sign before I could see *what* was open. The delicious smoky smells that greeted us as soon as we walked in the door... More
