It's a family affair at the Iron Horse. Many of the employees that are parents, work with their children, side by side.
There have been about 6,000 employees during the 45 plus years at The Iron Horse. Over 40 of our cooks have gone on to culinary schools.
The original owners of the Iron Horse in 1972 were Marion and Dudley Tremble, Bill Noonan and Lee Tremble. Now Lee is getting ready to pass the torch to his son Sean! Sean has been working at the restaurant since he was 16 years old, starting as a bus boy and working his way up to learn every aspect of the business.
Every year we serve over 100,000 customers, many of which are regulars. We were ranked "Best Fries" in Bergen county by the Bergen Record, and "Best Burger" more than 3 times by 201 Magazine and others.
Many of our employees have left us to become: Chefs, Doctors, Lawyers, Asst Attorney Generals, Members of Rock Bands and Successful Business People.
