Average place, food was good by not exceptional

We picked this place and everything was good, but It had a generic atmosphere and average to good food. It isn't a unique experience but won't do you bad either....

Offered some higher end tequila but expensive. Cheaper drinks were just that. Food was not great and not cheap for what you got. Would give it a skip unless happy hour 5 dollar drinks at the bar.

Had a big group of 10 for dinner. Everybody really enjoyed their meals and the drinks. Several people in the group had fajitas - which is a house specialty. A very cool atmosphere and nice wait staff! There are a ton of Tex-Mex places along Riverwalk - I am glad that we picked this one!

After asking our hotel for a recommendation, we headed to the iron cactus. Our waiter was great, and the food came out quickly. The food was good, not great, but we would return again.

Iron Cactus, is very serious on how they make there cocktail's. Great service, and would like to tell management. That Jesse was the best bartender and Joel was good too. Best spinach salad ever, fresh strawberries. Keep going back.

Honestly, there's nothing bad I can say about the place, I just can't say anything that's too good either. Our service was average (a little slow) but not great. The food was good but not memorable. The drinks were fine, not delicious. It was just plain average, and I mean that in a nice way. The atmosphere was cool and... More

The food here was delicious and I loved the hot salsa, but it took them a long time to get the margarita out to me and when I got my food the chicken was pink. Also, the margarita was $8.50 and was the smallest margarita I've ever seen. We then had to wait about 10 minutes for the check and... More

Busy night and were lucky to get a table. Good menu and friendly wait staff. Nice table outside and were entertained by a pair of ducks! Food was good and nice wine.

We'd been to the Iron Cactus in Austin the night before so thought we'd do a comparison test. The San Antonio restaurant is much classier, but perhaps lacks the edginess of its Austin's downtown namesake. We shared the guacamole to start. Plenty for two, but the server who prepared it at our table, although full of enthusiasm for his task,... More
