Delicious food and great service

My wife, 8 yr old son and I enjoyed a great meal. Unlike some other nearby Mexican / SW inspired spots, we alway receive great service at Cactus. With elementary school aged boys, snappy service is important, and once again we were not disappointed. The spicy margarita was very good, but they... read more

Never been disappointed with any entrée at the Cactus. From Tucson which has the best :"Sonoran" Mexican food in the world!. Moved to Kirkland and was pleasantly surprised to find the interesting take on Mexican food at the Cactus. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent.

Four of us ate here yesterday on their outside patio. Clean and unique. The food was very good and there were lots of items to choose from. Good service, good chips, salsa and guacamole.

Really good Mexican food...with creative menu. Good guacamole, very fresh. Service friendly and helpful. A slight glitch in the service was noticed by wait staff and they were very accommodating to make up for the glitch.

This place is great. I guess it might be called Nuevo Mexico. I had a chop salad with a roasted corn quesadilla . Excellent. Not the heavy stuff you get at every Mexican joint.malthough if you want that, they can probably accommodate you.

The food was okay for a mall restaurant and the service was good. But these days with high restaurant food prices, just okay isn't good as it should be.

While visiting Kirkland we discovered this Mexican 'infused' restaurant for dinner. great location, wonderful food prep and presentation. Service was good, was probably excellent but the place was jammed with customers since a wine 'event' was in full gear around town and the resulting throngs. Pricing is moderate but well worth the cost versus quality of food. try it, you'll... More

Cactus is a tex mex type restaurant that has good food but is a bit pricey for Mexican food. The bar atmosphere is good with good chips and salsa. Cold beer and good margueritas. It's definitely worth a try if you haven't been.

Warm weather brings a lively crowd of cactus fans enjoying the fresh tasting Salads and entrees on a newly completed sidewalk. We enjoyed a sunny afternoon and delicious salads for lunch. The Cobb salad is a favorite . Chips and salsa are not included but the salsa, guacamole and chips are a delicious extra.

it was a lovely day so we sat outside and enjoyed people watching. The brisket of beef with poached eggs was fabulous. My son had the miya which was quite good but he liked mine better. Good mimosa with fresh squeezed orange or grapefruit juice. Highly recommend
