6th Street Iconic Austin Mexican Restaurant

Iron Cactus has been a local favorite Austin Mexican restaurant for over two decades. Our contemporary Mexican cuisine menu includes Mexican food favorites like fajitas and margaritas, but also specialty items like our Three Chile Pork Loin, Camarones (jumbo Shrimp) A La Parilla, Southwest Paella and Stuffed Avocados. Dine in the restaurant or on our rooftop patio. Don't forget the table-side guacamole!

Rooftop Patio

Enjoy the happenings on 6th Street without having to join in the fray from our 3rd floor rooftop patio, overlooking 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 view. This is the spot the TV stations visit when it’s time for New Year’s, Halloween or Mardi Gras celebrations. We’re at the intersection of fun and Austin.

Top Tequila Bars in the U.S.

Iron Cactus has been voted one of the Top 10 Tequila Bars in the country by multiple publications. We offer over 100 premium tequilas to sip or have mixed into margaritas and martinis. Be sure to try a specialty tequila cocktail from our drink menu. Our bars also offer a variety of frozen drinks, wine and a local and international beer selection.

UPDATE: Iron Cactus Austin will be closed on Wednesday, February 1 due to inclement weather.
