“Great Restaurant in San Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Iron Cactus is a great place to eat on the Riverwalk! Steven, our waiter, not only gave us great service, but great advice for what to do while in town. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and more than we could eat. I would definitely recommend The Iron Cactus.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Came with my family on vaction. We went in for a drink. Those margaritas were addicting! Lobster tacos were the bomb! and the hospitality was so refreshing for a tourist destination. I came out feeling like a local. Jasmine was our bartender and she was nothing short of amazing. I wish the had one of these in Florida

“Tasty but Tiny Portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

While tasty, the portions they give you for the shrimp tacos and accompaniments are very small. The rice and beans were especially flavorful. For the price, this "entree" is more like an appetizer. You would need to get a real appetizer, entree, and dessert if you really wanted to have your stomach feel anywhere near full. I loved the fact my mojito had fresh basil but it was on the sour side. The place has a cool ambiance and the servers and bartenders are nice. If you're just going for drinks and get a little food to snack on, this is a great place, but I wouldn't make a dinner out of it unless you want to leave feeling hungry.
