so-so

Upon our arrival in Wall, we asked at our hotel desk about where to eat. They said any of the local places were good. We decided to go for the Cactus Cafe and Lounge. Dinner and service were both mediocre. The food was okay, but nothing to get excited about.

Sorry, but this was gross. Bad service, long wait for sub par food. My husband got the salad bar and it was iceberg lettuce with maybe 5 other options. I got the buffalo chicken sandwich and it was small, frozen nuggets grilled on bread like grilled cheese. Tons of mayo. It was not worth the price.

Not a bad price for limited buffet, but wish we had gone somewhere else. Not much more you can say about this location.

Was unimpressed with this bar, kind of dirty and nothing special in place. Was also very loud as TV blasting and all. Nothing special. I guess if you just want a brew or drink its ok.

Very disappointed. We should have just gone back to Wall Drug. You should avoid this place even if it is the only place open. Limited menu, unattractive buffet.

the service was very, very slow and sloppy for the most part. The food choices were limited, and it took forever for the kitchen to get the food out. The "buffet" table consisted of frozen pizzas, some corn on the cob that had been soaking in waster so long it had lost any flavor it might have had, and a... More

Stopped in here for appetizers. We had the potato skins and fried cheese sticks. It is the normal pub grub so it was pretty average and a little greasy. Service was okay and the bathrooms were not that clean

We were there on June 14th walked out after being there for quite awhile as no one ever came to wait on us. Numerous workers walked by --mostly doing nothing. They really need to work on getting better wait staff perhaps some that care about customer service.
