Description: Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.

Never been here before. Initially got excited about the $1 tacos and $3 Margaritas. Our party of 3 enjoyed these all to start our meal. For the entree, the Jambalaya was fantastic. Others in our party enjoyed the Caesar salad and burger. Both were delicious.

The atmosphere here is so fun. A great place for late night snack or full dinner. The haddock taco is the best I have ever had anywhere.

We stopped for a weekday lunch, a salad with steak tips and the lunch special. Salad was blah, and the special wasn't very special, small portion for the price.We have been in the past,at the TBones side and have had really good meals. Not so south of the border(downstairs at Cactus Jack's)

My husband and I stopped in for dinner early on a Saturday night. We were seated right away and our server came right over. Our drinks came out fast as did our appetizer. Our entrees were hot and delicious. Very good flavor without a lot of added heat. You could actually taste the food without burning your mouth. I wish... More

We sat on a very lovely deck overlooking the lake. As good as the food was our server Megan was even better! She was helpful with menu information, but even more helpful... More

Cactus Jack's is located on the front floor under T Bones. The atmosphere of CJ's is very warm and welcoming. When we arrived there were many dirty tables, but once we camped out in front of the table we wanted, a waiter promptly came over and cleaned the table. The food was very good. The menu features a nice stay... More

The place is really nice for Mexican style food. Service and prices are excellent. One of the few places around opened late.
