Cactus always does a good job and a great lunch and our favorite for lunch whenever we are in Kirkland.

We love our neighborhood Cactus in Downtown Kirkland. The happy hour is one of the best, and their fresh sheet is always inventive.

My husband and I have had brisket tacos twice at Cactus. The flavors ignite your taste buds in a truly unique and delicious take on the old standby. I can't recommend them highly enough. You won't be disappointed!

Nice sidewalk seating. Wide variey of margaritas, including a low carb one which I thought tasted better than the "real thing". Huge chili relleno which my husband said was the best he had ever eaten. Decadent tres leche pudding.

We tried both soups - Tortilla & Green Chile. The latter made me feel like I was back in Santa Fe. Both were very tasty, garnished with fresh herbs.... More

Really enjoy their style of Mexican food, especially the salsa and the blue corn tortilla enchiladas. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. They have a special tamale once in a great while which is out of this world and I've only had it once, so I can't tell you anything more about it than that, but it was... More

Good Mexican food. I highly recommend the queso dip. The carne asada plate was very good and the corn was great. Everybody we were with liked their dinner.

I have never been much of a fan of mexican food because most of the mexican restaurants I had visited so far gave me the impression that everything was either drowned in cheese or overcooked. So I was very pleasantly surprised at the excellent fare in Cactus. The food here is excellent. Dishes are light, not drowned in sauces or... More

Mexican food is popular in Seattle but it's pretty difficult to find a good one. we were nicely surprised to find cactus. It's very good!!!! They have a happy hour that we enjoy a lot. This is a place to go for good food!
