Had a late night drink with some food. Mexican martini was great, and they had a tremendous number of tequilas to try. The guacamole was fresh and I liked the chips. I have eaten here a few times over the years and it has never really disappointed, this time was no exception. I would recommend trying this place if you... More

Iron Cactus accommodated our big group of 170 people very comfortably. While planning this function, the director of events was very cooperative and helpful. the service and the bartenders are great! We had a lovely experience, nothing to complain about.

I'm with a large technology corporation based in Austin and we recently hosted a private reception for some very strategic customers and partners at Iron Cactus in downtown Austin. The venue itself is extremely nice while still be casual and cool. The margarita's are out of this world and the food above what you would expect for a buffet. But... More

There was a bit of a wait to be seated, and the service was a tad slow once we had our table. But the food is good and the margaritas were great. They had a huge selection of tequila, and the bartender was helpful and friendly. They do give you a good amount of food, so go hungry!

My company hosted an event on the rooftop lounge area at the Iron Cactus during SXSW and we were incredibly pleased with the staff, food and venue. The location is amazing - it is basically in the center of Austin's entertainment district. The rooftop provided a private option for us, with the added bonus of a phenomenal view and branding...

We held a company party in the Mezzanine of the Iron Cactus and it was wonderful. We worked with their event planner, Rhyann, she made everything really easy. At our event, the food, drinks and service were wonderful. Definitely worth the cost.

Fantastic location for rehearsal dinner! Excellent service, food, and drinks! Can't beat the atmosphere, and everybody in our group loved it. Rhyann was extremely friendly and very helpful throughout the process, and staff was great the night-of.

We had a Rehearsal Dinner for 74 people on Valentine's Day! Rhyann Bull was an amazing person to work with. She was patient and persistent in helping us to achieve our goal of bringing together two new families and helping us to feel at home. The room was warm, inviting and very comfortable. The food was fresh, delicious, and plenty... More

The food didn't really do anything for me here. It was a TON of food too. I wish I would have split something with someone. I had the fajtia burrito (I can't remember the exact name) and it had too much cheese, too much sauce, not enough grilled flavor and it was just too much food. Granted, that can be... More

Great place to meet friends for a drink and appetizers. Happy hour has discounted appetizers and drinks. The location is perfect for NW Austin. A good value.
