The station in South Haven is a great Mexican restaurant and has a very extensive beer/ drink list. We stopped in on a weekday night for dinner on our way through town in August. There was ample outdoor seating with large umbrellas to provide shade. The cool nearby lake breeze helped keep us very comfortable.
The husband loves it when he can get a couple of different items for his entree at dinner. He went with the fish tacos, that he said were outstanding and Carnitas. He added a side of street corn to top it all off.
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.

I had purchased as many Groupon and Restaurant.com coupons that I could find for our Seattle trip. Near the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center we found Plaza Garibaldi on Restaurant.com. It was a quick couple of blocks down hill to the restaurant for lunch.
Since it was a Friday the place was pretty quiet and we were quickly seated. My Mom and I had large burritos and daughter had nachos, she dislikes Mexican food. We saved room for deep fried ice cream of course! (Dessert helped us meet the minimum spend on the Restaurant.com certificate. LOL!)
The food was very good! Service was quick and the only downside was the full belly walk back uphill to the Space Needle.
