  • Found it by accident while we wanted the hotel to sleep was a pleasant surprise upon entering! Staff very unique, Wild West style designed with a country singer to accompany dinner! Really typical! Not to mention the food! I enclose the photos otherwise no words would make the idea! Excellent meat! Excellent quality and baking even more! The first time I tried the famous mec end cheese was ordering them and ready to criticize them just jiggling instead I had to even think again on their way to see our pasta! If you are out there you have to go out to eat!

  • Funky place, gift store and restaurant. Had some BBQ here and it wasn't bad. It's a pretty interesting little stop though possessing all the strange "attractions" and Americana that only a tiny stop in a small town like Kanab can possess.
  • Great Quick stop. My husband and I went on a Caravan Bus Tour of the Grand Canyon. This was one of the stops. The store had lots of jewelry, memorbelia and snacks. They also sold some Western clothing. They had a place in the back of the store where you could take some fun "wild west pictures."
  • Love the selection of Native American jewelry, the store decor's Wild West atmosphere and the kind clerks. Don''t miss the adventure out the back door!
  • They have a bit of everything...dress up cowboy style, lovely selection.
  • To whom it may concern: On Friday the 18th of this month, my wife and I were returning from a grand daughter wedding trip in the Phoenix Valley and decided to spend the night in Kanab at the Red Hill Best Western Motel. As I was checking in there was a gentleman conversing with another employee and overheard me as where a good place to eat was. He immediately handed me a "discount card" for your establishment. After settling in we were excited to have dinner at the Iron Horse. Upon arriving we were greeted, seated and given a menu. Neither of us were very hungry so I ordered the Stake House BLT and my wife ordered the salmon "starter." Our food was prepared and delivered and we ate. Everything was going well up to this point. I finished my sandwich as my wife finished her appetizer. We paid our bill just as we received a phone call from our son in Hawaii. We got into our car and talked for about five minutes and then my wife started getting ill. We immediately drove to the hotel, another two minutes, and by the time we were in our room she started vomiting. She continued vomiting all night. I collected seven garbage bags of stomach content which I was intended on turning over to the health department, however, it was Saturday so that didn't happen. To make a long story shorter, she continued being ill, unable to eat, for the next three days. We are now at the sixth say after visiting this restaurant and she is still very weak and having waves of nausea. I researched her symptoms and concluded that she had indeed suffered food poisoning. Given that the only thing she had to eat was the salmon appetizer we can only assume that the salmon was tainted and the source of the food poisoning. We spoke with several health care providers and they all concurred with our assumptions. Had we have been able to turn over the bags to the health department I'm convinced that any testing would have confirmed this fact. We spent several days finalizing our trip and have spoken with a number of family and friends, many of whom travel through Kanab regularly and they have all thanked us for letting them know that this establishment is one to avoid. Given that we travel through the area several times a year we also will avoid the Iron Horse to insure that we do not have this experience again.
