Description: Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire

“Thank you for the input”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Looking for a restaurant near our hotel in Manchester New Hampshire, CJ’s was well positioned. Highly ranked, less than a mile from the hotel, offering Southwestern and Mexican menu choices worked for both of us. My barbequed chicken and ribs special was a ton of food, with falling off the bone ribs and chicken spiced well for a Friday night’s meal. The Jalapeno Popper starters were great with a crisp outer coating and snappy peppers and stuffing. I’m told the Empanada Dinner was great too, but I only got a taste of that. We both appreciate the input TripAdvisor reviewers have, and keep up the great work.

“Far to be authentic tex mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

Even if was packed on that Friday night and with a promising menu, I felt disappointed with the japalenos. They were creamy but not too spicy. Then I order the stuffed haddock which was not so tasty as they put too much bread in my opinion. Service was attentive but not spectacular.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Cactus Jack's is one of the best places to eat in Manchester, New Hampshire. I have eaten here a few times before. It is always good. This time I ate around midnight after flying into Manchester late at night and searching for a restaurant that was open. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Cactus Jack's serves their full menu until 12:30 a.m. I had the chicken enchiladas, and they were excellent. I always like to eat at Cactus Jack's when I am in Manchester.

“Something for everyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

12 family members on Good Friday - everyone happy with their food. We were able to be seated for our reservation immediately on a Friday night at 7. Everything from salads to burgers to full meals. Nobady went away hungry. Super staff. and they even handled lots of separate checks
