Good Food and Drink

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

Come by on a weekend after 10 am and enjoy their brunch. No buffet ... But a tasty menu. I order the Navajo fry bread with honey ... Or the chips and guacamole depending on my mood. Sweet or salty. The guac is creamy and fresh. I keep coming back for the migas. A nice scrambled egg dish with chorizo,... More

Chris, our waiter, made my rating a star higher. He was great. We went with his recommendations, the butternut squash enchiladas and the spicy shrimp appetizer (Camarones D El Diablo). The shrimp were fantastic. I didn't care much for the enchiladas. Maybe it was the goat cheese. I had a margarita and they certainly didn't skimp on the tequila! Because... More

I recently had lunch here with some friends and we enjoyed to cocktail choices that were unique from other drink menus...we also enjoyed the variety of lunch options that were not too filling. I had the pork tacos and they were delicious!

I have been to this restaurant a few times now, and each visit has been very good. The service is attentive, the food choices were varied, the drinks were appealing. I am pleased they offer a 'dairy and gluten free' fare; this is important to members of my family! The patrons age range was from the very young to senior... More
