good tex-mex

Food was good. large serving portions. I really liked my chicken tortilla soup. It had some kick and I like spicy food. The pork chop were suppose to be chipotle sauce but it was more like a mole sauce. Wife had faijta's which were good.

While walking down the River Walk stop by and have lunch or dinner at the Iron Cactus. You can eat outdoors or enjoy the beautiful and calming indoor dining. We enjoyed the caso with the wonderful roasted tomato salsa, wished I could have brought some home! We had a combination steak and chicken fajita for two which could actually feed... More

We went there for dinner based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and I am so happy we did. This was the best meal we have had in San Antonio so far. We were seated right away, waiter was at the table within a min or so, food and margaritas were fantastic! Chips were fresh, salsas were yummy and all... More

We had high expectations for this place and were very disappointed. First off while on vacation in Texas I wanted to try beers brewed in Texas. The first 3 beers yes I said 3 beers I ordered, they were out of stock. How can that be possible when you are a restaurant on the river walk? We both ordered burgers... More

This place is good. The atmosphere was amazing. It started to rain on us while we were dining at the patio and the waiting staff was kind enough to bring all the stuff inside. Where the three course meal appetizer main course and dessert all three were delicious. I highly recommend this place if you're in town. Place is located... More

Stevie V was an awesome waiter and steered us in the perfect culinary direction. I like fish and had the Del Mar which was perfect. My husband said his ribeye was one of the best he's had. Margaritas were great. We'll be back!

If you want top-notch service and suggestions, ask for Carl. We have a double martini with 100% el agave tequilla, mussel appetizers, and blank angus fajitas that were out of this world. My wife and I both give the meal (and service) two thumbs up. Ya gotta come to the Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX!!

One of the better Tex-Mex restaurants on the River Walk. The outdoor dining is somewhat screened from the pedestrian walkway so you have more privacy. The interior is a standard restaurant with better than average Tex-Mex food. I had the paella ane enjoyed it even though it was not like any of the traditional Paellas that i have enjoyed in...

To start out, we didn't get to Iron Cactus until about 2:30 pm. We sat there after being seated for about 15 minutes without anyone coming over. We were within seconds of leaving when they came finally and took our drink order. Then they took our order for food. Our drinks came shortly before our food did which shouldn't happen.... More
