Mac, our server was on spot!! He was extremely accommodating, and couldn't have been more perfect! He really made the night great, and the food even better!

The waiter was very nice and made our night on the river walk pleasant. I had the lobster tacos and they were good. My husband had the pork enchiladas-double stacked and he liked it. He said it was New Mexican style. The real star was the drinks though. For $4.00 more get the Mexican Martini shakers. So worth it. Those... More

This was very good Tex-Mex food. The Mexican donuts were scrumptious! Too much food. Great servers and wait staff.

Vanessa is not only an utterly charming and beautiful young woman but a superb waitress, who made my lunch at the Iron Cactus a memorable event. The food is terrific, the ambiance is lovely, and all it took was a dynamite server to create a very pleasurable experience.

Best part of the table side guac, so good! I had the chicken nachos which were really good too. Lots of cheese, chicken and sides, no complaints. The only negative is sitting outside, lots of bugs and pigeons who don't care if you swat them away, they will be back. Pigeons are gross when eating and they seem to be... More

I was a little disappointed, but admittedly I had higher expectations of the restaurant. We were looking for better than average Mexican or Tex-mex food. The fresh made guacamole was delicious. The steak fajitas were good, but nothing to write home about. Overall, there was nothing about the restaurant to make it stand out unless you are a Tequila aficionado,... More

My sister group and I visited San Antonio's Iron Cactus on June 27th 2014 and I must say with accuracy that this was by far the highlight of our 4 day trip. Our server was named Rudy and from what I later found out he was on his 3rd day of training and you would never tell because the service... More

We tried to get takeouts one night, and was put on hold on the phone for > 30 min..so we gave up. We assumed they had too much business for them to bother with takeouts! That said, son really wanted to try their food. So we gave it a second chance ordering lunch for takeout to go on the road.... More
