Best Fajitas?

We visited with a group of people on a Saturday night when a particular radio station was providing the music. While the music was great, the appetizers in the bar were NOT. We ordered beef fajita nachos and beef fajita quesadillas and I have to say we were quite disappointed. The fajita meat was very tough and unpleasant. However, in all fairness, I have had the fajitas in the dining room before and they were quite... view more

nice menu

patron glazed ribeye was great. Glad i decided to try it now i get it every time i go in. Great selection of tequilla. All in all a really good place to go for dinner that is definately different than the regular chain restaurants in this price range. I have always had good luck with the servers as well as i know it is difficult to get solid help in the service industry.

Late Night Happy Hour

From 11 until they close they have a great late night happy hour. There are $3.00 house drinks, wine, beer, and margaritas, and $5.00 Mexican martinis and Texas teas. They also have a ""bar bites"" menu that has extremely cheap appetizers like nachos, wings, and queso. I know it is not very healthy but for a late night craving, it is perfect.

Kids eat free on Tuesdays

The North location... where to begin.I love the fact that kids eat free on Tuesday. For every adult entree you get a kids meal that comes with a free drink and scoop of ice cream. The happy hour from 4-7 has half price appetizers and three dollar wells, margaritas, and beer. There is also a wide selection of ""tequilla flights"". These are awesome. You pick a flight of your choice and it has three ""almost shots"" ... view more

Fun Trivia Night Tuesday

My cousin took me to the Iron Cactus in North Austin for my birthday. He knows that I love to play games and the trivia night was perfect! I had a cactus juice which is a strong frozen type of margarita and the cheeseburger. Both hit the spot. Then our server brought me out a chocolate mousse for my birthday. We had the best time. The food was actually really good, the drinks were strong, and the server was really ni... view more

Perfect place for a fun night out

After reading some of the reviews I felt like I had to post. The North Iron Cactus offers great specials, accommodates large parties, has good food, and tasty drinks. I go in there about once a month and have never had bad service. I do usually sit in the bar area unless I am on a date. They have several flat screen tvs and will change them to whatever game you want to watch. During games they offer two dollar lone s... view more

Would not recommend.

The service has declined and become so unpredictable at this location, that dining here is not always enjoyable. There are too many tasty places around to risk an evening at this establishment.

Gone Totally Downhill

This used to be one of my favorite places, great food, great margaritas, great atmosphere. I no longer live in Austin and every time I come to town I used to get a group to come meet there. So we went last night and it's obviously changed and gone way downhill. First clue was the parking lot...practically empty. I thought it was just because it was cold and only a few days before Christmas. Then there's the smoki... view more

Great salsa, ok food and service

My wife said this used to be ""the"" place back 10 years ago, it looks it with the 1990 decor. We decided to give it a shot...\r We walk in and the smoke from the bar is wafting out the door and into the restaurant. Not a great start but we're seated far away (only later did the smell permeate all the way across to us).\r The chips and salsa were great. I mean the cold salsa was good, the warm salsa fantastic. ... view more
