Fire & Ice Smokehouse and Creamery is located on Railroad St. in Marengo, IL. This location was once a 3 flat apartment, and in 2010 was turned into a restaurant known for the best BBQ in Marengo. For some time, there was even a dance studio in the same building, but Fire & Ice has now turned the studio into additional space for the restaurant. Owner, Joseph Steinke, a 30 year veteran of fabricating and welding, took a leap of faith and quit his job to put all of his energy into his restaurant business. It has been a success and has been recently renovated to include a brand new bar and gaming area as of late 2015.
Fire & Ice can’t be missed on Railroad St. A giant ice cream cone marks the front of the big red building with a wooden deck. Once inside, there is a large cooler filled with homemade ice cream across from the main dining room. The family-friendly dining area is filled with one-of-a-kind signage and décor and gives the room a unique cabin ambiance. There is additional seating around the corner from the main dining room, as well as seating in the bar area. The bar is separate from the dining room and includes a new (end of 2015) gaming lounge with the perfect amount of privacy to ensure comfortability among gamers.
