“Good food for the price!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Nice homey atmosphere, and good food! We ate here for breakfast, and I know someone might say it's hard to ruin breakfast, but it arrived hot, coffee and service are great!

“Great Place for Breakfast”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Great food and great service. The only draw back is the size of the restaurant however that adds to the charm. I stop by at least once or twice a week for breakfast. The IRON HORSE Country Fried Steak is my favorite choice. Portions are big so you won't leave hungry. Just a great place to eat.

Cool little place, but the coffee was weak and the food was just ok. You can tell it's a local favorite place, but nit mine.

“John's Iron Horse Grill”
Reviewed July 24, 2009

499 Railroad Ave.
[--]
Round Lake, IL 60073

Located across from the Metra station.

A wonderful diner celebrating railroad life and Chicagoland culture.

The service is fast and very friendly. A superb Reuben sandwich is found here-- one of the best. The Big John, two large hamburger patties with cheese and extras is excellent. Unparalleled egg dishes (breakfast served all day), and good biscuits and gravy.

There is no skimping with size or portions, including the salads. The chef's salad is heavy with meats and cheeses. There is a "lite" menu, offering tuna or chicken salads, as well stuffed tomatoes, but they're pretty standard fare. Better to order items from the grill.
