This restaurant seems more like a takeout joint. There were only a handful of tables, so if you go at the lunch rush I bet you won't be able to eat in. We had a chicken Philly and a traditional steak Philly. Both were excellent and made fresh. We had the seasoned fries, as well. The fries were definitely too... More

Restaurant was not busy but we waited a few minutes for a table while two servers ignored us. When one of the waiters finally showed up she was not friendly. Once we got a table it took really long for someone to show up to take our order. By this time we felt it was not worth staying to eat... More

I love this place. The food is delicious and the service is always friendly. I have never ordered the same meal twice, and I have never been disappointed. It's great for breakfast or lunch.

So pleased to discover this gem off the 95 wasteland. Specializing in cheesesteaks and burgers, the service was friendly and fast, the food delicious, and the prices reasonable. My littlest one wanted an egg salad sandwich, but alas it was not on the menu. No problem, they whipped one up just for him. I wish more businesses realized that simple... More

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
