The best place on the island to stop for a big, messy burger! Delicious! Swing by, hang out on the beach while you wait for it to cook and then enjoy!

I liked the lion fish sandwich. My only complaint is that it was a very small portion of fish and my wife and I were still hungry when we finished. They need s side dish like fries or coleslaw...

We love food truck food and were delighted to learn about Cactus Blue. Very limited menu, of course, but for a lunch on the beach, it's great. The lion fish sandwiches were delicious - highly recommend them, not only for your taste buds but to help deal with the invasive species. Friendly service, bit of a back up but they... More
