I had heard slightly mixed things about the Ice House. I had been told the food was good but that the service was rather patchy, but I was willing to give it a go. The food was definitely the best I have had in Raton, which probably does not do them any favours. The ribs I had were excellent, loads of meat and a lovely smokey dry rub. Like most US portions, my half a rack was huge and the fries were nicely cooked, albeit far too many of them, served with a tasty small bowl of corn with green chilli. The service was almost over the top, in that a couple of the group I went with had been there before and had had an unhappy experience and the girl, (who seemed to be pretty much in charge), who served us bent over backwards to ensure we were happy. The steaks that some of the party had were cooked to their specification and were very well seasoned and great quality. Definitely going back there at some point in the trip.
