BEST prime rib

We visited Cactus Jack's on busy Valentine's, after our friends told us the prime rib beat ANY steakhouse in the valley.....and they were SO right!! We scored a nice corner booth for 4 in the back of the restaurant. The bar area was lively and everyone was having a fun time. The servers were... read more

Love Cactus Jack's. It is our favorite restaurant in Indio. Locals know to dine in the back or bar area. Great service, food and cocktails. The prime rib is the best but there is a variety for everyone. When I want something lighter, I order the steak salad...very much "the deal." We have been going to Cactus Jack's for over... More

We had never been to a Cactus Jack's, and decided to give it a go while in Indio. My Prime Rib was great! Perfectly done and the staff were happy to make everything right. I have allergies, so am often surprised in a restaurant with ingredients I can't eat. Not here! They took the time to make sure all was... More

The location and the outside appearance of this restaurant is deceiving. Once inside, the comfort, style and overall decor is lovely. The full bar had ample selections with healthy pours. The food was fantastic with Prime Rib being a standard with all 3 cuts available. Yes, it is high priced, but well worth it.

We have never been to Indio before, so didn't have a clue as where to go to eat a good dinner. One of the people who works at the resort where we are staying recommended Cactus Jacks to us. My wife got the beef back ribs, and I got the regular cut prime rib. The food was very good. The... More

Having dined at Jack's many times in the past 10 years we thought it had been a while since we had been there so we gave it a try on a Thursday night. Called for reservations as past experiences told us you could not get near the place without one. Sadly a reservation was NOT NEEDED. When we arrived we... More

Drinks are heavily poured for the guy that wants to know they have had a good drink. Food and drink prices are a bit high for downtown Indio and food doesn't really warrant their price point.

Service was very slow,we where asked once for a refill on drink. We where never ask how the food tasted. Steak was plan no seasoning or anything. I wish I had A1. Apple Bees steak is way better. I had $35 filet mignon. I was cooked perfect for medium rare. From Ohio

My chicken piccata was very good as was the linguini that came with it. The portions of mine and the others dining with me were very large. We all said we would prefer a more moderate amount and a lesser price. The others said they liked their dinners. Service was good. A busy place.
