Pollo Relleno is amazing! (Pic below) Stuffed with yumminess and cooked to tender perfection! What a lunch feast! My brisket quesadilla was phenomenal and more than enough for a lunch portion for me even though it was a tapas. I've never had salsa so good,...More

Arrived late and Iron Cactus was walking distance from our hotel. Seated on the upstairs patio overlooking 6th street. Service was little spotty, but once the food and drinks arrived, all was good.
