    Fantastic meal but I think it might have made me sick. Traveling, so it's hard to tell.

    We ate off the Sunday brunch buffet. Great food, well marked as gluten free or not, knowledgeable staff and great service. $17-$18 per person without drinks.

    Ordered from the GF menu, explained I couldn't have fried items because of the contamination and declined tortilla chips for that reason. I still got sick. Their gluten free menu is actually "gluten free-ish" and they say their fried items are cooked in a shared fryer but apparently they're still included in the gluten free-ish menu. Even if I wasn't sick right now, the food wasn't that great. I expected better quality for the price. Service was great though, our server was super nice.

    the food was delicious. the only issue that I had was once when I asked for more tortillas they brought me flour not corn so I would double check when you get them. but the corn tortillas are some of the best that I have had. one other thing when you come please don't be in a hurry, service was a bit slow.

    We were driving in Dallas and found Iron Cactus on GF searches. The waiter was very knowledgeable about GF choices. Both cevice and GF queso were excellent and fish tacos tasted great. No problems w cross contamination. These guys know GF!

    Love this place! The chips are cooked in a gluten-free fryer--they fry other things in the oil, but gluten-ful stuff is cooked in a separate fryer. It's like the only place in Dallas where we can eat chips! I've eaten here three times and never been sick; neither have my mom and sister, also Celiacs. Their GF menu is 2 whole pages!!!

    Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. The tortilla chips they bring out are cooked in their own fryer, without any other foods and the salsa is gluten free, too. The menu had a pretty good variety of things to choose from.

    The Iron Cactus does have a gluten free menu but it only included foods that are normally gluten-free,so unless you just started eating gluten free, it is useless. The food was mediocre at best. My fish tacos were not great, and my husband's meatloaf was even worse. They charged $10. for valet parking, and we sat on a patio that smelled like garbage. Clearly, we won't be going back.
