San Antonio River Walk Restaurant

No visit to San Antonio is complete without a stop at an iconic San Antonio River Walk Restaurant! Located among the winding pathways and bridges, you will find Iron Cactus – a favorite among locals and visitor alike. Known for its delicious contemporary Mexican menu and tequila bar with over 100 premium tequilas, it is a must-visit destination!

Iron Cactus sits in a prime location, with a beautiful patio overlooking the River Walk, the boats and the famous Selena bridge. There are great views from both 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. 

Iron Cactus is a great spot to enjoy a meal or just grab a drink and an appetizer.  The tableside guacamole is a must and is made fresh and hand-tossed to your liking with avocados, onions, peppers, tomatoes, citrus, and cilantro. Looking for something a little more filling? Try one of our specialty items such as Stuffed Avocado, Pescado Del Mar, or the Southwest Paella. The Stuffed Avocado is a favorite and features smoked chicken, blended cheeses, verde sauce, Mexican rice, and your choice of beans.

Our drink menu also 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 grapefruit soda. It also comes in a souvenir cup! Another cactus exclusive drink is the Iron Cactus Double Barrel 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 is a great choice when looking for a San Antonio River Walk Restaurant! Lunch and dinner is served daily and we even offer brunch every Sunday from 11am-2pm.
