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. The Iron Cactus draws the inspiration for its cuisine from various regions in Mexico, and can be found in three locations across Texas—Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. Named one of the top-10 tequila bars in the country, the Iron Cactus features over 100 different types of tequila. And the scenic rooftop patios, elegant dining, private party rooms, and stylish bars all combine to make guests’ experience a memorable one.
The menu is a culmination of years of dedication and passion by the Iron Cactus’s team of chefs and managers. A combination of unique flavors and proven cooking methods are combined to create cuisine with the spirit and flavor of old Mexico. They use only the freshest and best ingredients in all of their dishes. And this same passion for quality is echoed throughout every element of the restaurants.
Signature margaritas and tequila-influenced cocktails are the perfect companions to the culinary selections. Featuring over 100 tequilas, the Iron Cactus has been named a top tequila bar by Chili Pepper Magazine and Spirits and Cocktails, and D Magazine rated their “El Agave” as the best margarita in Dallas.
