This is not just my favorite Mexican restaurant, its my favorite restaurant all together! I wish the restaurant was bigger, but it has a truly authentic Mexican ambiance. The food is outstanding. I always get either the enchillada or the chimichanga. (sorry about the spelling haha) I wish they would just buy a lot somewhere and build a larger establishment.

This is an authentic Mexican Restaurant. ( not tex-mex). The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. It located in a strip-mall with a small eating area, so I'd call (although not necessary) For reservations. We enjoy Mexican food and El Cactus offers a variety of dishes that will meet Your expectations.

Had a business lunch here. Nice service. Excellent food - tasty, interesting combinations, large portions, served fast and hot. Not fancy, but tasty and interesting. The restaurant is currently having some construction done, so the entrance is ugly, but it is open and the food is great.

Our recent visit confirmed that this small Mexican restaurant in a little strip mall off of Rt. 113 continues to offer great Mexican food at reasonable prices...and they're a BYOB which will give you a set-up for beer, wine, or margaritas! My Envueletos de Mole were excellent...mild/flavorful mole sauce...came with black beans instead of the usual refrieds and rice. My... More

The food was fair/good for Mexican food. The portions were big. The prices were fair. It is a BYOB. The atmosphere is lacking. It is in a strip mall and has no windows in the dining area. The counter is in the back of this area where you need to check to be seated. I believe they have take-out service... More

We frequently eat here with the kids. Their chicken chimichangas are my absolute favorite here or anywhere. Food is freshly prepared and delicious. It is BYOB. Love their salsa also! Fresh and HOT! Try this place. You will not regret it.

We love El Cactus. Restaurant is small/quaint and BYOB. The salsa and guacamole is made fresh and is excellent. Black bean soup is very good. Every time we've been here, the food has been really good/fresh.

Best Mexican food in the area! Great quality and big portions. Love the chicken enchiladas with green sauce. Never had room for dessert. Also a BYOB!

I stopped here one day for some Guacamole & tortilla chips. They literally made it when I ordered it. Talk about fresh!! It wasn't as flavorful as I am used to...but everyone makes it different. It was still very good. The restaurant was a qaint, quiet little place with a lot of mexican decor. Very authentic atmosphere. I plan on... More

Our family of four went for dinner - 2 adults and 2 teens. We do enjoy Mexican food, and when we went, shared the Combo Mex appetizer and then each had our own dish (Veggie Trio, Envueltos de Mole and can't remember the other 2). It's a BYO, so brought a few beers and enjoyed our meal. I'm not a... More
