When visiting the San Antonio River Walk, you must go to the best of the best! Iron Cactus has been voted Best of the River Walk for the last 6 years running. We have a delicious contemporary Mexican menu, offer over 100 premium tequilas, and a beautiful patio overlooking the River Walk. Enjoy a tasty meal and cold cocktail while enjoying the views of the river, boats, and Selena bridge. It is an Instagram worthy spot!
Iron Cactus is a great spot to grab a drink and some chile con queso. There are great views from the patio and inside the restaurant! The upper dining area has floor to ceiling windows that look out to the patio and river. Enjoy the lively atmosphere of the River Walk but still have a bit of privacy. You need to try one of our specialty items such as Stuffed Avocado, Pescado Del Mar, and Southwest Paella. The Stuffed Avocado features smoked chicken, blended cheeses, verde sauce, Mexican rice, and your choice of beans.
Our drink menu has an option for everyone! Choose from a variety of specialty cocktails, tequila flights, wine, and beer. Cantarito is a San Antonio cactus exclusive drink with El Jimador Reposado, fresh lime, orange, and Topo Sabores Grapefruit. It also comes in a souvenir cup! Another cactus exclusive drink is the Iron Cactus Double Barrel made with Herradura Double Barrel Reposado, Cointreau, fresh lime, and agave. These are just two of the many tasty drinks to enjoy on the patio!
Come see for yourself why Iron Cactus continues to get voted Best of the River Walk! We are open every day for lunch and dinner. Brunch is served every Sunday from 11am-2pm. Happy hour runs Monday-Friday from 3pm-6pm.
