The Iron Mule, Ironton, MO
Online: Website | Facebook
Sun, Tue, Wed, Thurs 11am-9pm
Fri & Sat 11am - 10pm

The Iron Mule is a smoke free locally owned restaurant that opened in 2016. Four long time friends had a vision to open a Family/Sports Bar where kids as well as adults could find exactly what they were looking for. We offer an eclectic menu that ranges from Pizza to Gumbo and Burgers to Baked Potato.
The Iron Mule specializes in pizza. We have 10 specialty pizzas to chose from. We would suggest the Taco Pizza. It's on the secret menu. We also offer a gluten free crust.
Our wings are second to none. We offer over a dozen different wing flavors. Our signature sauce is Iron County Gold. It's a tangy sauce that has just the right amount of heat.
Pizza and wings are not what you are looking for? We offer a 1/3 lb. fresh ground beef patty with our special seasoning. We have a variety of cheeses, toppings and a Kaiser or Potato bun to choose from. The Mule Kicker is a local favorite.
A burger isn't fitting the bill. Try the Porkalicious will certainly fill you up. It's a generous portion of slow smoked pulled pork piled high and covered with our signature southern style cole slaw.
Have we mentioned our Ryno's Gumbo? This recipe was handed down to us from a long-time friend that we affectionately call Ryno.
We also offer several salads and baked potatoes for the lighter side. We have a full bar, 10 beers on tap and over 40 bottled beers to chose from. Our frosty mugs are kept at -12 degrees.
The Mule also has a banquet room that can seat up to 40. Please call ahead for reservations. It is usually booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
