Best River Walk Restaurant

If you’ve been on the lookout for the best River Walk restaurant, then come visit Iron Cactus in San Antonio. Our contemporary Mexican restaurant is the premier location for delicious eats and a gorgeous view. In fact, Iron Cactus has been voted Best of the River Walk for the last 6 years running. 

Our yummy Mexican cuisine is second to none. Enjoy Mexican food favorites like fajitas, plus specialty items like Brisket Queso, Crab-Stuffed Jalapenos, Pollo Relleno and Ahi Tuna Ceviche. We’re known far and wide for our comprehensive menu and tasty drinks. As you dine, sip on the best tequila in the city. We offer over 100 premium tequilas to taste or have mixed into margaritas and martinis, along with specialty cocktails, frozen drinks, wine and a local and international beer selection.

Enjoy the beautiful restaurant interior or sit outside on the patio with a view of the River Walk, boats, and the famous Selena Bridge. From our patio, you can see all the happenings on the River Walk because we’re located in the heart of the district. However, the restaurant is separated by a planter to give you a bit of privacy. We are located next to the ticket office for the River Walk boat cruises (so you have a clear view of the serene sight) and right at the Selena Bridge where Selena got engaged, as depicted by Jennifer Lopez in the movie Selena. It’s a favorite Instagram spot in Texas!

There’s a reason Iron Cactus is a top San Antonio tourist destination. We’re the best River Walk restaurant in the city! As you savor the amazing flavors from our menu, make sure to take in the unforgettable views.
