They food is good and reasonably priced. The staff is great. The only problem that I can see are the tables and chairs. Every time I go I notice that they are run down. They need replacing. It would really add to the dining experience.

We haven't been there in a while so the family and I decided to give it a try again after a recent soccer practice. It was so-so like we remembered. Food was very plain for Mexican but staff was nice, so…. Not one of our favorites in Zachary.

As this is the only mexican restaurant in town it will cure that "mexican" crave. Owners and staff are delightful, food is just not up to par. Chimichangas are pretty good though! As well as margaritas!!

This was a nice find while we traveled to Baton Rouge. The Cactus Cafe is a family friendly mexican restaurant that clearly uses the freshest of ingredients. The food was excellent and the salsa was very good. The only disappointment was the beans, they were watery. On our next visit to Baton Rouge, we will eat here again.

The wife and I visited on Mar 16, 2012. Good food, cold beer, tasty margaritas, very reasonable prices, and excellent service. Chips and salsa were great. Try the beef and cheese nachos with fresh jalapenos on the side.

This isn't the absolute best mexican food I've ever eaten but its pretty good. The prices are reasonable and the service is amazing. The manager is always on site so he keeps a good eye on his employees. I've seen him cleaning and waiting tables when his restaurant is full and to me that's pretty impressive. If you get the...
