We have been going to this place for years now and have never had a bad meal. We have tried most items on the menu and have always enjoyed them. Look for the daily specials as they are always special. They have a great bar with a wide selection. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. They do not charge for chips and salsa nor refills on them.

I had dinner on early Saturday evening. I haven't been to the Iron Horse for many years. I was glad to see the restaurant in operation and the food was great.

The service was good and the people were friendly, but the food is simply sub-par. Bland and boring, my fish tacos needed a lot of condiments to make it worth eating. Even the beans, rice, and medium salsa were flavorless. In the past I have really enjoyed the meals, but recently it has become too inconsistent.

Billed as a Mexican Restaurant so tried some standards like enchiladas. They were ok but nothing to write back to Texas about. On a return trip we tried a Special and the Chili Verde Bowl. OMG they were delicious. We have since become regulars and Mark and staff treat us great. Stick with marvelous specials and Salvadoran dishes and you can't go wrong. They even have good Cajun/Creole specials. Cadillac margaritas are the way to go. Many Portlanders don't like spicy but if you do.....try IronHorse.

Met up with some old friends for happy hour with my wife and daughter and had a great time. They make their own salsa's and come in three different heat ranges to suit every taste. Good selection of draft beers and one of my favorites Dos XX. Happy hour is just $3.50 for import and micro and $2.50 for domestic so it's hare to beat the price. $3.00 for 3 mini tacos rounded out the food offering, and they were loaded with goodies. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Had a mix-up on the bill and called back today and they fixed the whole thing and were great about it. Food is really good, but they get quite busy, so get there early. Lots of big screen TV's as well so you can watch your favorite sports.
