When I found out we were moving to Texas a few years back, in true foodie fashion my thoughts centered around unique food in Texas. I was excited to have plentiful options for authentic Mexican cuisine! I could finally say goodbye to the meak imitation portrayed by the Mexican fast food drive thru chain so prominent up north. I won’t name any names but I’m sure if I did it would ring a BELL!
My first and favorite Mexican restaurant in Texas is Iron Cactus! I discovered the restaurant while on iconic 6th Street in downtown Austin. Established in 1996, Iron Cactus has been serving up contemporary Mexican cuisine and serving award winning margaritas. The Iron Cactus was even named one of the Top 10 Tequila Bars in the country, because of their vast offerings of over 100 tequilas!
Iron Cactus has five locations in Dallas, Austin, and on the San Antonio Riverwalk! Iron Cactus serves up bold flavors in a unique relaxing atmosphere. Iron Cactus offers awesome deals for happy hour Monday through Friday from 3PM – 6PM including:

I also encourage you to be adventurous to sample a few signature dishes from Iron Cactus including my favorite, Steak Tournedos de Tejas. For this entree, Iron Cactus grills steak medallions seasoned with southwest spices, then bastes the steak in a sweet and spicy chiptole glaze with a cilantro coulis. The meal is served with green chili mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Does that sounds delicious? Iron Cactus serves up Mexican cuisine that will make your taste buds sing!
