Food is consistent and always fresh. Green cactus burrito is a must. Only problem is if you order take out on a busy night it can take forever.

We have been going to Green Cactus for years. The Chicken or Steak Fajita Burritos are a meal that we really enjoy. They are always consistently excellent. It is not the least expensive place to go but you get good value for your money. The dining room is spacious and comfortable. If weather permits you can dine on the covered... More

We have been to the Green Cactus Grill many times, and to their other locations in the area as well, we have never been disappointed!!! The food is consistently delicious, all the items are made fresh, you have to wait a bit but it is so worth it. Green Cactus has become a standard for us to judge other Mexican... More

Have been to several Green Cactus restaurants. Always find that the food is fresh and the restaurant clean. Good choice for fast food.

Food is fresh and good. Service is excellent in this self serve fast food establishment. Menu suggests that the food is Mexican but it only bears a slight resemblance to Mexican food; if you enjoy spicy food you can add it from the condiments at the self serve bar.

It lucky for them I like the food because the attitude of the counter person tonight makes me want to go elsewhere. I have been a customer for 10 years and have spent countless money at Green Cactus. They usually have a sullen, sorry to be there person at the counter. Tonight I spent 70.00 and they forgot the chips.... More

Lots of people go nuts for Green Cactus but to me it's just ok. We've never had either a bad experience or exceptional food. The restaurant is bright and all tiled and noisy, not exceptionally clean, self-service. We usually do take-out.

The food here is a welcome change from the chain restaurants serving mexican food. The fish tacos are my personal favorite, but you will need at least two (if not three) of them to feel full. It's best to do take-out, as seating is somewhat limited, but it's well worth the trip there and home with your goodies.

Went to get the salsa to put on my meal and it was bubbling in the corner (fermenting!!) Looked like they just dumped new salsa over yesterday's old. So what goes on behind the scenes then???? Scary
