Very comfortable pub/southwestern-style eatery right in the centre of Dundas Village. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service excellent. The portions are very generous and good value, and they have thirst-quenching cider on draft.

If you want some of the best nachos in the city....come here!!!! They give you a massing serving with great amount of topping and cheese all the way through the nachos!!! Very key! I also order the pulled pork nachos and I ask them to sauce the pork before putting it onto the nachos. I learned from my first experience,... More

today a few of my friends and i had gone in for some fajitas. Hearing good reviews we had come in with a decent expectation, but quite quickly the server we had left us feeling like a hassle. The drinks were over priced and pretty much all ice, when ordering my second caesar (below average) i asked for less ice... More

We enjoyed a light lunch on the patio. The pulled pork nachos are awesome. They have lots of toppings and are layered throughout so that you don't end up with many dry nacho chips. The only suggestion I'd have is that the pulled pork have some sauce on it...even though it has flavour it's dry with no sauce. I think... More

Went in during the Dundas Cactus Festival and we were rather disappointing. I can't remember the second order we had that night, but after the long wait for a table, the BBQ ribs sure didn't make up for the wait. They were too dry, and definitely way too salty and small.

My first choice when in Dundas. I enjoy their Cactus Lager. I had the Rancheros burrito It came w/beans n rice. It was a bit noisy but that was due to world cup soccer. The place is good for families before 7pm. NOT during major sporting events. Staff was positive and helpful. Food was very good for a pub/restaurant.

You can't go wrong with coming to the Thirsty Cactus. It's a place I go to when I just want a good meal and maybe some sunshine on the patio. They make the best nachos I have bad in the city of Hamilton. They are piled high, great toppings and cheese through the entire pile. I always order the pork... More
