While the food at Iron Cactus was decent, I'm not sure I would go back again. I have found the same problem with their location in Dallas as well. Many other better Tex/Mex choices in the Austin or Dallas areas.

Excellent service considering we had a large group. Food was fantastic. Adult beverages were great. Hotel we were staying at was in walking distance from this restaurant.

I live nearby and have been to this Iron Cactus many times. The food is consistently good but service can vary depending when you go. The weeknight happy hour has really good deals. Sit outside if the weather is nice.

We have used this spot on numerous occasions--it is very attractive and is in a very active shopping area. If you want good Mexican food this is the best choice in the area.

I have ate at the downtown Austin location several times, so I expected about the same in food quality. Ahh, not even close. I had the brisket enchiladas and they were horrible. Sat at the bar, and had horribly slow service on a slow Wednesday....More
