Established in 1996 on historic Sixth Street the Iron Cactus Mexican Restaurant, Grill and Margarita Bar has been serving contemporary Mexican food for over 20 years. We draw our inspiration for our cuisine from various regions in Mexico. The Iron Cactus can be found in 3 locations across Texas. Named one of the top 10 tequila bars in the country, we feature over 100 different types of tequila. With a deep passion for creating bold, unique and flavorful mexican dishes the Iron Cactus stands apart as a premier Mexican restaurant and drinking destination.
