Visited Friday Night at the start of Presidents weekend. It was our first time in Austin so were going on recommendations as to which area to go to spend the evening. Very few places to eat on this strip. Restaurant was full, we were told the wait for a table would be about an 1 hr. So we ordered drinks... More

Had the chips and quest and have to say the chile con queso is very good. Can't go wrong with that choice.

Looking for a good value Mexican restaurant in downtown Austin and found this on TripAdvisor. Lively restaurant on 6th Street in the heart of Austin. Good value, it is known for enchiladas and fajitas according to our server. We tried both. I think the fajitas are better value. Hubby said all the cheese leaked out of his enchilada. Chips and...

So many choices of restaurants along the river (and I've picked some stinkers). But Iron Cactus is reliably delicious and they know how know to make real margaritas.

We had a great experience with the patio. The weather was perfect and our server was great. The beef fajitas were melt-in-your-mouth good and the table side guacamole was excellent.

We were in a bit of a rush but got a table in the main floor and had quick but excellent service from Jenny. We ordered guac, fish tacos, shrimp tacos, ceviche and steak fajitas. Guac was made custom at the table (with no onions for our friend Leslie). Everything was delicious and prompt....and we taught Jenny the lyrics to... More

I had the Travis Burger, which was good. I wouldn't call it great, but good. The guacamole is freshly made table side. That turned out to be fantastic and so did our waitress who's name on the ticket said Tater Tot! Awesome name! So to Tater Tot, thanks for the great service and friendly smile. I would recommend this place... More

I brought a group of 40 to Austin and we catered with The Iron Cactus. We had an enchilada buffet. The food was great and the service was even better. They were very attentive to our needs. We were on a tight time schedule. We were served on time with hot, delicious food and when we were finished out servers... More
