Downtown Austin Mexican Restaurants

Searching for Downtown Austin Mexican restaurants? Iron Cactus is here to make your day! Located in the heart of the iconic 6th street district, we’ve been a local favorite Austin Mexican restaurant for over two decades. In fact, we’ve perfected our craft and continued to deliver the best Mexican food in the city.

As a contemporary Mexican food restaurant, our cuisine is as authentic as it is delicious. Our comprehensive menus include lunch, dinner, and brunch options alongside the extensive drink menu. Enjoy traditional favorites like Tableside Guacamole, Chicken Fajitas, and Tortilla Soup.

Our bold, unique flavors, like our new Vegan Tacos with portabella mushrooms and Crab-Stuffed Jalapeños, set us apart from the rest. We just updated the menu, so there’s a whole new selection of dishes for you to taste and savor. This includes Mexican Meatloaf made from Angus sirloin and chorizo, Stuffed Avocado, and Pollo Relleno stuffed chicken breasts.

One of the best parts of the unique Iron Cactus experience is our location. With us, you can enjoy the happenings on 6th Street without having to join in the fray. Dine in the gorgeous restaurant interior, which features industrialized nineteenth century décor, private event spaces, and a warm atmosphere. Not to mention, you can also choose to watch the world below from the skies on our 3rd floor rooftop patio.

This view overlooks the 6th Street district and the downtown skyline. There is a bar on the patio as well as our full menu so you can take in dinner, drinks and the unforgettable scenery. There’s a reason this is the spot the TV stations visit when it’s time for New Year’s, Halloween or Mardi Gras celebrations. In fact, we’re at the intersection of fun and Austin!
