“Good Grub While Hitting The Wine Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Cactus Jack’s Dawg House is a perfect description of this establishment. Nothing fancy or frilly, just a place to get a good, greasy meal while doing some wine tasting in Murphy’s. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect at a bar/sandwich shop on Main St. in Small town America. The staff was friendly and helpful with what was on the menu.

I had the chili cheese dog sliders and my wife had a ¼ chili cheese dog. Obviously our orders were 2 different ways to serve the same item, but each plate uses a different brand of dog so we tried both. They were both tasty with plenty of chili and cheese. You will be very full when you leave Cactus Jack’s so if you are hitting the wine rooms consider splitting something with your significant other or plan a long walk after your meal.

My guess is that Cactus Jack’s won’t be on the Michelin Star Rated restaurants anytime soon, but if you are looking for some reasonable priced, delicious grub in Murphy’s, don’t be afraid to stop at the Dawg House.

BTW, they do have multiple TVs so you can catch a game while getting your chili dog fix.

“fun for the hole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

This plase is great, the food is priced right and on fri and sat nights you can come down and spend a night with the locals and on some nights dance the night away with plan B the local band, it's great old rock& roll.
