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... read more

One of my all time favs. Best mojitos around. Innovative menu. Love the butternut squash and the green enchiladas.

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

A fresh twist on southwest style Mexican food. Meats are always tender and the seasonal or special menus offer unique dishes that include ingredients you won't find easily elsewhere. Drinks are also great as they use fresh ingredients.

Usually people think Mexican restaurant means sharing chips & salsa but then ordering your own plate. Cactus is great for eating family style like you would at a Chinese restaurant! Portions are large enough to share and there are such eclectic choices on the menu that you'll want to try more than one thing. The Navajo fry bread comes out... More

We have eaten here many times and the food is always excellent and so are the margaritas. Nothing on the plate is throw away! The rice and beans are excellent and the food has excellent flavor. The fish tacos are outstanding and so are all of the enchiladas. Also this place has a nice atmosphere.
