My daughter and I stopped by here tonight for the first time. This is one of those little places that may not look like much on the outside, but is absolutely incredible. Burgers, wraps, chicken sandwiches, etc. It sounds ordinaire, but is oh, so extra-ordinaire! The chips and fries are all hand-cut. We tried the chips, which were properly seasoned... More

We recently visited the Blue Cactus for the second time. Not only is the food excellent - fresh, yummy, visually appealing - the service is outstanding. The woman behind the counter definitely wants you to be satisfied with every aspect of your visit. We will stop here every time we are in the area.

We have been hearing about Blue Cactus for awhile now. So we decided to try it for lunch. It was packed with business people. The friendly staff was pumping out cooked to ordered sandwiches, burritos, fries, etc. Everything looked good. I ordered my standby... a basic hamburger. It took awhile for the order as it cooked to order. No heat... More

Got lost yesterday and came across this restaurant by accident. Best mistake we've ever made. Delicious homemade soups and grilled sandwich.

Just visited this little spot for my second time for a Saturday lunch.A bit too much libation on Friday night made my partner and I want some good hang over food. Blue Cactus boasts great Philly steak sandwiches but being a non beef eater, I opted for one of their many chicken cheesesteak sandwiches. YUM! I had one call Cajun... More

We became intrigued with the Blue Cactus Grill after reading a number of positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Our first impression when we entered the restaurant was that it was fairly small, but packed with locals, which is generally a strong indicator of good food, good service and good value. There are not many tables so we had to wait... More

Tried this place after a dr. appointment at norwalk hospital. BEST homemade potato chips i ever had, they are addicting. Tried the mozzerella, pesto, tomato wrap, and told them to add chicken. Wow, i go there at least once a week and get the same thing. Amazing... they can be busy during lunch time so i would suggest ordering over... More

I love their cactus burger. People who don't like cilantro should probably avoid the cactus slaw served on the side. I personally like it. The home cooked potato chips (fries) are also good, crunchy but a bit dry. Have a drink handy to wash it all down. If you don't like to wait (that big burger takes a little long),... More

I happened upon Blue Cactus Grill from the restaurant.com site, and what a pleasant surprise for our palates. Everything is homemade, with southwestern, fresh pops of flavor. The menu offers something for all ages and tastes. I had the cheese steak and corn chowder; my husband had a burger and chili. It was an extraordinary experience, and we will return.Don't... More
