Iron Cactus Taqueria Plans to Open Next Week Near Caltrain
An update on Iron Cactus (683 Fourth St. at Townsend), the SOMA taqueria adjacent to The Creamery (and from the same owners): The revised opening date is next Wednesday, Oct. 21. Iron Cactus's wagonwheel logo, an interior of repurposed timber from the old Gilt Edge Creamery that once occupied the space, and salvaged hacienda doors -- all point to a taqueria thick with rustic atmo, and a straightforward menu of Missionesque dimensions (tacos, burritos, platos). Hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m., except it'll stay open an hour later Thu-Sat. Closed Sun. And a daily happy hour with reduced-price apps, wine, and drafts. Maybe the best news? It's within easy stumbling distance of Caltrain. Something tells us the snore quotient on Peninsula commuter trains is about to spike.
Once it starts spinning, you should probably grab your train.
