I had the blackened tuna which the waiter recommended, and it was excellent. Fresh, tender and perfectly cooked. My wife had the seafood cakes which were also very good. The service was terrific, quick, friendly and very attentive. We could have saved some money by ordering a pitcher of Margaritas rather than ordering individually. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food and service, as always! We have eaten here for many years. The food is consistently good and always fresh whether its traditional Mexican or one if their daily specials. Delicious fresh salsa and chips, too!

While the decor is your typical Mexican look the noise level makes it impossible to hear the person next to you. It's a nice idea that they bring in entertainment but the place is much to small for the full out equipment. I've been there 3x and have vowed not to return. The food is average at an average price.... More

This was a surprisingly excellent experience for me since I'm not a huge fan of Mexican cuisine. Luckily, the friendly wait staff pointed out the menu offers something for everyone. I'm a huge seafood lover so, I order the crab stuffed burritos in a creamy sauce. Delicious!!!!! If you love Margarita's, you'll love the huge pitcher-size they offer for your... More

First time eating at the Cactus Café very authentic looking Mexican restaurant. I was excited to go because I had heard good things about this place. On this evening I had the steak fajita very very tasty served on a sizzling platter. A generous portion of flat iron steak and onions, served with soft taco shells and a side of... More

Once again we found Cactus Cafe outstanding in every respect. Amazing food and WOW service. We pass four Mexican places on the way to Cactus Cafe at least once a week.If they don't have it on their menu they will always try to please.This place is a hidden GEM.

Husband and I were traveling and stopped in for Mexican food but tried the specials instead. The rock fish stuffed with crab imperial was perfect and the thick chop pork chop topped with fried onions, peppers and chorizo sausage was delicious. Our servicer was friendly, even the owner came out to say hi. Highly recommended.
