I always ask if any ingredients have changed and he checked that for me. I got... More

Went there with colleagues after a trade show. They started by serving a hot and cold salsa with chips. We each got our own salsas which was nice to alleviate the double-dipping risk with a mixed crowd.

This was my first stop for food in downtown Austin. It was recommended by an acquaintance as a good place for Tex-Mex. I sat down for lunch and ordered the lobster taco and a glass of sangria.

One of my favorite restaurants to kick back with a beer and people watch. Good food and good drinks. Sit on the rooftop if you can on a nice night. :)

If you are young and don't mind waiting then this is a great choice. An hour rate in downtown Austin for medico food was not worth it. The atmosphere is great, but not much room to wait. Crowded and loud.

We went to this place the night before the UT-WVU football game. Great gathering place for everybody. Great drinks, food and atmosphere. The rooftop is fabulous and fun. If you are in downtown Austin...go to the Iron Cactus. Definitely worth it.
