Private Dining Rooms for Parties

When you’re looking for private dining rooms for parties, lots of things come to mind: patios, drink menus, inside party rooms, outside party spaces, private rooms, open spaces, food choices, buffets or off-the-menu…the list goes on and on. With Iron Cactus Mexican restaurants, we can service just about any need you may have for private dining rooms for parties. We cover that entire list of needs with one group of restaurants.

When you think of throwing a party, and we mean a party, if you’re in Dallas then our Tapas and Margarita Bar could be the perfect space for a party. It is on the second level of our restaurant, and features a half-moon Tapas (appetizer) bar for show cooking. Watching our chefs create delicious tapas just adds to that party environment. The bar extends into a circle to include a full bar, a wall filled with tequila choices, a margarita machine (of course), and our amazing bar menu of inventive cocktails. The Tapas and Margarita Bar work well in conjunction with the Cactus Room, where you move to for your dining experience for groups of up to 150 people. The second floor can also be used in a full buy-out situation for large events, including a dining patio looking out on Pegasus Plaza in downtown Dallas.

For private dining rooms for parties in Austin, you have many choices with our 2 Austin restaurants. If you’re having a party where you want privacy, especially in a full dining situation, the Cactus Room at our Stonelake location definitely fits that need. The room is completely enclosed, and accommodates up to 40 seated guests or 50 guests at a cocktail style event.

San Antonio is synonymous with the word “party.” Even though our location is right on the Riverwalk, it does have a wealth of options to host a private party in one of our dining rooms. Our Agave Room is a unique space for your event, including an open tapas grill and a private bar. This can be a private room for up to 90 seated guests for dining. It also includes a small stage, projector, screen, and other features for a presentation or corporate event.

Also in San Antonio, for an alternative to the private dining situation, you could take your party on a tequila dinner cruise on the river. It includes a private tour of the San Antonio River Walk with your own boat and captain, all while enjoying fine Mexican dining and tequila cocktails.

If you’re looking for private dining rooms for parties, Iron Cactus Mexican Restaurants have you covered. In Austin downtown at 6th Street and Trinity and in the Arboretum area at Stonelake and 360, in downtown Dallas at 1520 Main Street, and in San Antonio on the Riverwalk at 200 River Walk.

Mexican Restaurants in Dallas

If you’re looking for Mexican restaurants in Dallas, then don’t look further than Iron Cactus Mexican Grill and Margarita Bar. We’re located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, right on Pegasus Plaza. Iron Cactus officially serves “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine infused with Traditional Mexican Flavors.” That sounds fantastic, but what does it really mean?

It means we have redefined Mexican dining.

If you’re in Texas, you probably love Tex-Mex and Mexican food. In fact, you likely eat Mexican food every week! So try Iron Cactus when you’re ready for a new twist on your favorites, or for something totally unexpected. Here are a few examples from our menu showing how Iron Cactus is so different, so new, and such a twist for your taste buds when it comes to Mexican food in Dallas.

First, start with a traditional Mexican appetizer – Citrus Ceviche. If you’re looking for healthy food alternatives, this could be the dish for you. It starts with fresh shrimp and mahi mahi, a blend of triple citrus fruit juice, tomatillo, mango, and crisp radish for a crunch. This isn’t your typical Mexican fare, but if you’ve been to a resort in Mexico, you will know what we’re talking about. Fresh, healthy, delicious, but not what you find at your typical Mexican restaurants in Dallas.

Next, you might choose from a seafood entrée or a classic Mexican food dish, again with a twist.

Paella is the national dish of Spain, so of course, Iron Cactus made it Mexican by adding additional flavors. Our Southwest Paella combines jumbo shrimp, fresh mussels, and bay scallops for the seafood component. Then added roasted poblanos and jalapeno Texas sausage to make it our own, topped with a lobster cream sauce and cilantro-lime rice. Its Spanish, Mexican, and Texan, all in one big pan.

If you love Mexican food, then you know trying the chile relleno is the litmus test for expertise in the kitchen. At Iron Cactus, try the Chile Relleno Rustico – peppers stuffed with chicken, sun-dried cranberries, pepitas, pepper jack cheese and toasted pecans, topped with a verde (green) sauce. We don’t know of any other Mexican restaurants in Dallas that have tried that. Cranberries? Yes, a sweet fruity taste to make these chile rellenos like no other.

Top your meal off with our signature Mexican Donuts – including a homemade sweet cream filling, powdered sugar, and Kahlua fudge sauce.

In Dallas, you’ll only find this one-of-a-kind menu at Iron Cactus. 1520 Main Street in Downtown. See our full list of entrees, appetizers and more on our Dallas Menu.
