    My sister and I had a great time before a show. The strawberry margarita was delicious. They even crafted my sister a mocktail. The hard tacos were very tasty. The queso is some of the best I have had before, and the churros were the cherry on top.

    We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Iron Horse. The hostess greeted us letting us chose between tables at the front or the back of the restaurant. We dined on IPA beer, traditional Margarita's and house made delicious taco's. Our waitress Tiffany was terrific. We liked absolutely everything about our lunch at Iron Horse. We will be back whenever we are in Royal Oak.

    Group of 6 - One order was wrong, which was weird as 5 people at the table ordered the same salad, but they brought one taco salad out and the person didn't say anything, I think they were being polite. My salad was OK but the chicken was overcooked so I couldn't eat most as it was so dry and chewy. The spicy margaritas were a hit, but no one seemed to rave about the food. Also annoying they add a fee on if you pay by credit card - so be sure to bring cash if you want to avoid this extra charge.

    Friday at 6:00pm Restaurant was not busy. Server was very friendly and fast. Crunchy Beef Taco was delicious, Baja Shrimp Taco was spicy and tender. Chorizo Taco had a deep rich flavor, but needed more casa cheese. My wife Chicken  Enchiladas were okay nothing to brag about. Will try it again.

    We had a reservation and were seated quickly. Our friendly server was initially prompt, took our drink orders and went the extra mile to check on the seasonal tap for me. We ordered a cup of soup to start that came out fast, but then there was a large delay between finishing the soup, our initial drink orders being fulfilled, and placing our entree order. Things did pick up after that and the food was delicious. In addition, our server comped a drink because of the wait time. It seems they might be short on servers, as many places are these days. We will return.

    Mexican style brunch. Not too crowded. Noise level was pretty good - we could talk. Food was good and the service was great. I have never been to IH during the evening, but it looks like it could be fun. It has a nice vibe, being in a beautiful old building next to the RO Theater

    The food was very good, but the service was a little slow. It wasn't bad service, but we had somewhere to be after and I felt like I spent a lot of time trying to get our server's attention so we could get the ball rolling. Overall it was a good experience, but prepare to spend a bit of time there.

    Six friends had brunch prior to the Golden girls show and we couldn’t have asked for a better time. Ricardo was our waiter, and with the help of other staff they couldn’t have been any nicer to us. The food was delicious, the atmosphere wonderful, a great experience!

    Food was good. Our server only visited to take our order and bring the bill. Was told it wasn’t possible to do no onions on wet burrito without doing no peppers. The onions were by themselves on top… not sure how that works. Had water dripping from ceiling on table.
