Four star margaritas but 1 star service. You wait forever for a table, then they swamp your server with a bunch of tables at once. And they changed their used to be this delicious amazing smoked salsa. It's boring and tasteless now. Skip the food and stick with the ritas.

The worst service I've ever experienced! I cannot believe the treatment that we were given. Myself and 4 of my business associates had gone for lunch around 1:15pm (which is not a lunch rush by all means). We waited for nearly 1 hour for our food and told the waiter 45 min. into sitting there that we needed the food boxed up to go. He came back with only 2 of the 5 meals. I spoke with 2 managers and asked if we could be comped. After taking 15 minutes discussing the situation they did not comp us and we ended up paying full price for our lunch. The managers disappeared to leave the waiter to tell us this. I will never go back there and I will be writing the GM to let him know of our awful experience. Sad thing is it would have frequented this place because it's across the street from our office, but not now... NO WAY! And needless to say we were late getting back from lunch because their lack of respect for our time.

Awesome food, extensive tequila list and great atmosphere. Lead server Tim topped it off! Best service I've ever experienced.

I went for my friends birthday. There was 10 of us. We could not sit inside together because they only seat 8 people together. So it's 100 degrees outside, we are all outside. The manager came outside not to check on us or to give any customer service. ...BUT to ask are we a cash table!?? Wtheck! As we were telling him it's our friends birthday and wanted to sit inside...he dismissed us and said it's our policy and walked back in! By this time it's a hour or so later, one person from our party had to walk inside after the wack manager and ask them to provide us with silverware. The only person who serves outside is the bartender. He was very nice but it's now two hours in, after my 4th request for salsa. He is just taking our food order. Our food takes more then a hour to come out! They only served half the table and some of our orders were wrong! Other half had to wait 10 more mins. OUR FOOD WAS NOT GOOD! (Hard , no flavor n dry) We were so hungry that half of us ate it just to eat something more than chips and salsa. Smh. The positive was the bartender brought out a dessert for the bday girl without asking him, good company n the Cactus drink was delish!!!!

What a great place to eat, just hang out. The restaurant offers indoor outdoor and an outdoor rooftop dining area. Two bars for hanging out, and the best food you have had in a long long time. Prices are about average, and the service is great. Everything is made to order, so if your looking for a fast food type of place this is NOT it.

I am positive I will never frequent this grill/ bar again... the manager is horrid... and, he seems to not be able to do anything to placate his clients. Who has ever heard of a birthday party of 12 NOT being able to separate checks? I understand the gratuity... but, come on... really?! this "policy" makes me not want to leave anything for our friendly, but extra slow, waiter... okay... let me take that back... why make it difficult for clients to pay for their meal? The unpleasant and disrespectful manager's suggestion was to "work it out among ourselves"... after hearing that cavalier statement... I wanted to give him (the unfriendly and disrespectful midget of a manager with the too tight and dirty pants on) my dentist card for a much needed teeth whiting treatment along with an address to my local cleaners... that said... it was JUST okay... the drinks were not that great (watered down and slow to arrive to our table; if you had a complaint with the drinks, we were told you could not send them back... i.e., the blood orange and the blue iron cactus drink)... the food was not that great (when the food finally arrived to our table, most of it was slightly tepid...not too mention, the server informed us that the apps were "pre-made" so we could not alter the food to individualized preference (i.e., the brisket quesadillas and the crab nachos)... and, to top it off... the service was not anything to speak of... the waiter seemed over-worked and he was slow; he seemed to be in the "weeds".... again... the manager (the ugly, little blonde guy with bad teeth and shotty customer service) makes it hard to leave a rating higher than 1/5... and, btw, folks... we did work it out... thankfully, we had a couple of math professors in our mist so it only took us about thirty or so minutes before one person finally decided to just put the entire bill on her credit card and allowed the rest of us to "pay her back" at a later time... ridiculously, crazy restaurant policies in my humble opinion... the ICMGMB is just okay. maybe. with or without a group... I want go back. my advice... go up the street to the Wild Rose! I know that's what we're gonna do next time... hopefully, I'll be able to talk about the food AND the overall experience without rolling my eyes in irritation.

I arranged a dinner for about 40 people at Iron Cactus Dallas last month. It was pretty much a disappointment from start to finish. The rep that arranges everything- and whose services you pay extra for- was not friendly. The food was mediocre, at best, and the service was awful. There were not enough servers allotted to our event (I only ever saw two), so every course was very slow . One of the servers was actually flat out rude and argumentative. The only positive thing I can say about this place is that the lobster tacos were different than your usual Mexican fare and were pretty good. I wouldn't go back for a corporate event or personally.
