San Antonio Mexican Restaurant: River Walk Location

San Antonio patio restaurants

The Favorite River Walk Mexican Restaurant

Iron Cactus has been voted Best of the River Walk for the last 6 years running. That’s because our contemporary San Antonio Mexican restaurant is second to none. Try Mexican food favorites like fajitas and margaritas, plus specialty items like our Brisket Enchiladas, Camarones (jumbo Shrimp) A La Parilla, Pollo Relleno and Baja Fish Tacos. Dine in the restaurant or on the patio with a view of the River Walk, boats and the famous Selena Bridge.

River Walk Patio

Enjoy the happenings on the River Walk from our patio in the heart of the district, but  separated by a planter to give you a bit of privacy. We are next to the ticket office for the River Walk boat cruises, 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.

Top Tequila Bars in the U.S.

Iron Cactus has been voted one of the Top 10 Tequila Bars in the U.S. by many publications. We offer over 100 premium tequilas to taste or have mixed into margaritas and martinis. 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.
