The Iron Cactus evolution began in 1996 when Gary Manley and Michael Pottorff restored a historic, turn of the century building on Sixth Street in Austin, Texas that became the original Iron Cactus. The mission of creating a warm, friendly and unique environment was accomplished and today our restaurants provide guests with the best Mexican food and fresh lime margaritas in the markets we serve. Our menu is the culmination of years of dedication and passion by our team of chefs and managers. Our combination of unique flavors and proven cooking methods are combined to create cuisine with the spirit and flavor of old Mexico.
We use only the freshest and best ingredients in all of our dishes. The same passion for quality is echoed throughout every element of our restaurant. Signature margaritas and tequila-influenced cocktails are the perfect companions to our culinary selections. Featuring over 75 tequilas, the Iron Cactus has been named a top ten tequila bar by such national publications as Chili Pepper Magazine and Spirits and Cocktails. D Magazine rated our “El Agave” the best margarita in Dallas. Our scenic rooftop patios, elegant dining or private party rooms and stylish bars all combine to make your experience a memorable one. We hope you’ll join us soon at the Iron Cactus Mexican Grill & Margarita Bar.
