My kids (3 of them under age 11) love Mexican food - this restaurant is great. Kids meals are $6 and the size of the meals were plenty for our 11 year old. Great food - has a lot more than the basic Mexican menu !

I left the hotel and was in the mood for Mexican food so I searched and found this place. I should have kept walking down the street, there were countless other nice ( and crowded) places. When I walked in I should have gotten the clue. There were more employees in this place than customers . Since I was by... More

I don't even know where to start. It begun with phoning to make a reservation - the girl hung up on me mid-sentence, half laughing. Good start. Decided to give it a go anyway as we were with a large group of people and there weren't many budget options. I specifically inquired whether they were up for it. They said... More

Nice little cozy place, sometimes has too many college students, sometimes it doesn't. Either way, the blue mayan bowl is the best thing I've ever tasted and it's a great start, middle, and/or end to every night out and the reason I never remember to ask why they have a giant buffalo on their ceiling.

Nothing was terrible, nothing was phenomenal. The food was all ok, the drinks were good, service was not great, all around just an ok place. We went here our first night in town and did not make it a point to return. I would go back if others wanted to, but would not make it my first pick either.

The review I read that says the drinks are great, but Taco Bell has better food, hit the nail right on the head.

Went there for a girls night.. SO MANY THINGS WERE TERRIBLE. 1. called us to say they were going to cancel our reservation for being late, which we could not figure out as we had 1/2 of our party checked in and they were told it was no issue to go hang out at the bar while they waited 2.... More

Go here for drinks. Food was not good - tasted like microwave food. We had appetizers only. I would come back for drinks only. Good music.

We went after a baseball game. It had a great vibe, great music and delicious margaritas. We tried the originals, jalapeno and cucumber ones and we loved all of them. We didn't eat, but the food we saw looked good....I'd go again!!

We first tried the Cactus Club a few years ago when we were visiting Boston. We noticed it was busy and felt like Mexican so we dropped in. We loved it and returned again a week ago when in Boston for a Sox game. There were six of us including two children. We tried the guacamole as an appetizer along... More
