The location and food are both great. There is usually a wait to get seated, but it is worth it. The tables outside are also great spots.

Met some girlfriends for lunch. It was a cold day outside, so we asked to be seated in a booth looking out the massive windows. You can tell that when it's nice and warm out, they'll open those up to the outdoor patio. The ambiance was warm, staff was friendly. If you're gluten-free, ask for the gluten-free menu (always a...

We went on a Saturday night and had to wait about 30 minutes for a table, so we visited nearby shops. Our server was attentive and helpful. The salsa and chips arrived quickly and were fresh and tasty. The shrimp fajitas came with many condiments - all freshly made with peak flavor. The tables were crowded but the atmosphere was...

Went in Friday at 6:15 and it was busy, put our names in and went in the bar. They have a modest selection of tequilas but a good variety. We had a nice, prompt server.

I am quite amazed by all the rather positive reviews. I have had the misfortune of eating at Cactus several times due to work-related meetings. Without fail, each time has ended in disappointment. I mean this sincerely when I say that the entrees here are probably to most bland meals I have ever had in Washington State. In fact, most... More

We like this place as a business lunch location. It is inexpensive, generous portions and a cool place. In the summer it's outdoor seating adds another dimension to that coolness

My wife and I and some friends went to this restaurant for brunch on the weekend. We were surprised by the great food and friendliness of the staff. The menu had a great choice of Southwestern type food. The location of the restaurant is very good. The service was very good. Everyone in our small group really liked everything we... More

Totally disappointed. Place packed and cleaver menu but after salsa and chips food was bland, small servings, meager chicken. Better off going next door to the Mexican family restaurant

A restaurant located very ideally in Kirkland with nice sidewalk seating. We enjoy Mexican food and though limited choices were available ,what ever available were fresh and tasty. Some of us had chimichanga and enjoyed it. Good service and recommend you reserve in advance if you are a large group. All in all an enjoyable experience.

Cactus has a great location in Kirkland, outdoor seating and a festive atmosphere. A late afternoon-early evening meal at Cactus, however, was average. I opted for the house chimichanga and my wife chose the chicken fajitas. While each had some distinctive taste and flavors, they were not a meal you could consider special. The Happy Hour beer was cold although... More
