Had a few meals there, always good. A nice quite spot in a busy area. Meals are good and a beer or two if so inclined.

I've been here 3 times and I'm not impressed. Best Mexican on town is a misnomer as it's the only Mexican restaurant in town. If I want Mexican I'll drive to Brisbane to enjoy it, was disappointed with the Crooked Cactus.

Have dined at the crooked cactus a number of times and we are never disappointed. Ideal for that quick dinner or for a birthday celebration. The kids love the large sombreros that they are given to wear when it is there birthday..

From the outside this restaurant looks like a bit of a dive but once you walk through the door it is wonderful. We regularly visit this restaurant and the food is always great. The marguerita menu is extensive. Make sure you book a table though...More
