Location Description:

Like many business that found success in Austin, this Austin standby now has branch in Dallas. Here, you'll find the same slick, modern trappings down to the neon glow and clean decorative lines. Iron Cactus offers gussied-up Tex-Mex (lobster tacos, anyone?), which can be paired with more than 75 tequilas. Perhaps you'd like tequila in your food? Then order the Yucatan fish tacos with tequila-marinated whitefish. Or just go for one of the margaritas on a rooftop patio.
