As always, you can expect a certain standard when dining at Cactus Jacks. The service staff are well trained and follow their script well. The food is a little on the bland/non offensive side, but that's expected from a large chain restaurant. The portion size is quite large, so good value for money. The company's business plan obviously relies on... More

We have never had a bad meal and we have dined at Cactus Jack's over a dozen times in the last 3 years. I always try something different every time we dine and I have never been disappointed..

Many places could learn a lesson about what good staff are like from this place. Food was excellent. We chose to have several share plates which worked really well. Happy hour is great.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. It was very tasty and reasonably priced. Happy hour cocktails were also very cheap, but don't really contain a lot of alcohol. The staff were very efficient and the food came out very quickly. I would have loved to come back here!

Once again it was jammed packed nice and early, fast friendly staff however a bit of sector management would be good. Always generous servings, alas they do seem to come back an haunt you later.

Ate here twice. Great value money. Food yummy! Service good. The spare ribs were delicious. They also have cocktail and food specials on various nights so i would check those out before booking.

Cactus Jack's definitely fits the standard pattern of a theme restaurant. It has a nice selection of Australianised Mexican and Tex Mex food and a basic but adequate drinks selection. Don't expect a gourmet experience, but for consistent, easy food without difficult choices, this is the place to go.

Absolutely fabulous night. The restaurant provided quick, attentive and quality service. The food was delicious and generous in its serving. We even had food that we couldn't finish, not because we didn't enjoy we just had no room left ! Wonderful staff, compliments to all, and will certainly be eating at Cactus Jack's next time I'm in Townsville.
