The salsa was very bright and fresh and the waiter confirmed that it is made in house each day. We enjoyed it with two baskets of their tortilla chips and a lovely margarita.
For the main course, I had one of the best chimichanga’s I’ve ever had. Shredded beef wrapped in a toritilla, deep fried and then topped with queso and ranchero sauce. Layers of flavor, all of them good.
Michelle had the shrimp and grits on the servers recommendation. The grits were a local variety and ground extremely fine. The sauce was quite yummy but, because they left the tails on the shrimp, it was a very messy meal to eat. I don’t think cooking with tails on adds that much flavor and taking them off would definitely improve the dining experience.
The staff was knowledgable and attentive and quick with refills.
Afterwards, we wandered through their Mississippi Music Experience. This onsite museum has wax statues, signed memorabilia and audio/visual displays of the state’s musical history and it’s iconic musicians.
I’d definitely recommend the Iron Horse if you’re in the Jackson area.
