Excellent food

I can't wait to go back. The food is excellent. The menu had enough choices to make my whole family happy. Even my kids (10 &12) ate every bite of an adult meal which never happens.

This place doesn't look like much. It's located in a little strip mall but we checked out the reviews and decided too give it a try. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had gumbo, blackened salmon tacos and the Bloody Mary steak quesadilla. It would have been great if the atmosphere had more of an authentic cantina feel but the... More

Blue cactus is definitely a great choice. They have a unique selection of food, especially if you like seafood. The selection is a mix between Cajun and tex mex, every time we've eaten here the food was delicious

I ate here one night on a business trip. The blackened chicken sandwich was excellent. I would eat here again.

Can't say enough about Blue Cactus. Discovered this little store-front place a few months back and it has quickly become our 'go to' place. Wife and I eat out only once a week, and this gets about half our business. Most places I find one or two items on the menu that are done well, and stick with that. At... More

Great menu choices at a reasonable price. There are a variety of menu choices from appetizers to entrees. Their burgers are great too. They have a large selection of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages.

The cooks are doing great. I would say that side of it is thriving. On the other hand the service was horrible. We had this terrible waiter... I was out of my drink for about 10 minutes while she stood there talking to Her friends. She was also very rude and the table next to us thought so to. I... More
