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

As an Hispanic I love New Mexican food, but was disappointed with menu selections at Cactus in Kirkland. I had dined at the Madison Park restaurant for lunch years ago and was hopeful that my trip to the Kirkland, WA Cactus would be the right spot for the dinner hour. Unfortunately, I have an aversion to cilantro and most of... More

We had great time, and enjoyed the food! Good service! You need to make reservations ahead of time or you have to wait for 30 minutes or so to be seated.

Great southwestern restaurant with limited but interesting food. A never miss place for a good meal with good service. The Madison Park location has a great bar service and Tequila selection. Worth your hard earned dollars.

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 did a quick lunch of soup and chicken quesadillas, so I cannot comment on many of their dishes, but what we had was Great, and the service was excellent also. 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
