The Hidden Restaurant In Arizona That’s Surrounded By The Most Breathtaking Fall Colors
With fall quickly approaching, you may be on the lookout for things to do and places to visit while the temperatures are dropping around the state. We’ve got you covered with
some fantastic activities but today we’re going to check out one restaurant hidden away in the mountains where you can get a fantastic view of the changing fall colors and cooler temperatures. Let’s take a look!
Fall on Mount Lemmon is a beautiful experience, where just an hour’s drive from the Tucson desert will take you up into the cool mountains.
You can make your next adventure on the mountain a little more memorable by enjoying a meal at The Iron Door, located at Mount Lemmon Ski Valley.
Here, you’ll find tasty meals that will remind you of the comforts of home, like a bowl of hot chili served with a slice of cornbread.
Sandwiches, breakfast on weekends, and handmade pies and pastries also dominate the menu. You may want to arrive with an empty belly or right after a long hike!
And don't forget to top off your meal with a cup of hot chocolate, which is the perfect amount of sweetness to complete any meal.
There is outdoor seating available, which you should take advantage of before winter snow arrives! Just imagine sitting out on the patio with your bowl of hot chili and that cool mountain breeze making the autumn leaves dance.
Or, if the weather is just a little too chilly for you, you can have a seat inside. On cold days, they may have the fireplace going so you can enjoy hearing the fire crackling in the background.
The Iron Door is located at
10300 East Ski Run Road on Mount Lemmon. Call 520-576-1321 for hours.
