Iron Cactus San Antonio Riverwalk

Usually I have done my research and know what restaurant I want to try in a town. It might be the Russian House or Salt Lick but I have an address and a destination.  Somehow I could not pick for San Antonio and decided we would ask opinions once we arrived.  There were so many choices!  There is a Dick’s Last Resort, Rainforest Cafe and too many options!

The front desk clerk said when she had people in town she went to Iron Cactus.  She liked it because aside from good food the tables were not on the sidewalk so there is more privacy.  Sold!

We took some time strolling the riverwalk and admiring the holiday lights. Even for a Tuesday night in December this place was packed!

A short wait at the hostess stand has us seated outside with several tables at Iron Cactus.  Our waiter was very busy but provided good service.  You could tell he was hustling to keep up with all his tables!

I was really excited to try the brisket enchiladas.  I had been thinking enchiladas the whole time we hiked back from the dinosaur tracks.  They were worth it, amazing!

Husband tried the Southwest Paella and was in love.  He would have licked the bowl clean, there was nothing left!

Daughter had a cheese burger that she ate every bit of.  She was in heaven to not have to eat Mexican food.  She did also eat most of the chips and salsa that were on the table as appetizers.

They have a large menu at Iron Cactus and I am sure something for everyone. The dessert tray looked so good but we did not have room for anything else!  I would recommend calling for reservations if you have a party of 6 or more.
