Four of us ate here and everything we had was unbelievably great!! The Filet Oscar is to die for. I could have cut my steak w/a butter knife it was so tender and cooked to perfection. The Oscar was like none I had eaten before - two large pieces of crab laid across the steak w/a crab claw on top... More

I've loved this place for years! I must admit, I don't go there enough, but hope to remedy that in 2016. It's going to sound silly but my favorite is their grilled cheese sandwich, oh so wonderfully cheesy and gooey on yummy! The perfect ah moment is that first bite and then all the others and there are plenty, huge... More

If you're not a regular you'll get no service. The booths are plastic and gross while trying to charge 27 dollars for seafood. Their front sign doesn't even work. Disgusting trashy place. Don't even waste your time.

My husband and I dine frequently at Cactus Jacks when we just want to come in and have a good filet. Which historically the filets are pretty good (albeit expensive). The baked potatoes are usually very hard - though last night I had the best one they have ever served me! But sadly, I have noticed a pattern with Cactus... More

Cactus Jack's has been in Indio for a long time. They are always busy and their food and service is always great. We usually sit at the bar and eat there. Wendy is the evening bartender on Friday & Saturday evenings and she is good, makes a good drink and always smiling. The food is very good. Try the Tomato... More

45 years ago we had sat down to our first bacon and eggs at Cactus Jack's casual dining room. As years went by, we enjoyed the dimly-lit friendly ambience in the bar. Cactus Jack's was where the local business crowd lined up at the bar at 5:00 to unwind. We might have a great steak in the bar dining room... More

A birthday celebration involving 5 carnivores: 4 prime rib dinners and a rack of lamb. All meals were served as ordered and with good service. The "petite" portions were larger than I've ever seen. The quality of the meat was excellent. This restaurant continues to live up to its reputation as the place for prime rib in the Coachella Valley.... More

Cactus Jacks is one of those places you go to when you just want a good drink and decent food. The atmosphere is casual, but the bar is no nonsence. A game will be on behind he bar, and there is seating for dining withn the bar. The bar menu is great, and portions generous. All the food reflects knowledgeable,... More
