My husband & I go here often, usually with friends. We LOVE their pitchers of margaritas, as well as the fresh food! I usually order some kind of seafood like seabass, & the sides like polenta, rice & beans are fresh & tasty. Never had a bad meal there, & service is great! Music adds to the atmosphere too when...

Even though I have lived in De for over 8 years I was still trying to find a replacement for my favorite Mexican cafe in Annapolis. It has been found, Cactus Cafe. From the salsa and chips to the entry, chimichanga, and the flan. I sampled my wife's margaritas and they were fine. Based on the quality of the food... More

We stopped in for dinner on our way back from the beach. Funky decor, good margaritas. The Wings were very good and zesty. In the "off season" (til end of the month), the Chicken and Pork Fajitas are only $9.99!! I had the Prime Rib Fajita...very good, you cut up your prime rib. My wife's Chicken Fajita was delicious as... More

We love this place and so do our kids. The staff is so friendly. Food is always consistent. Our fave are the fish tacos, steak fahitas and you must try their wings. They are awesome...not your everyday wing. So good!

I had the blackened tuna which the waiter recommended, and it was excellent. Fresh, tender and perfectly cooked. My wife had the seafood cakes which were also very good. The service was terrific, quick, friendly and very attentive. We could have saved some money by ordering a pitcher of Margaritas rather than ordering individually. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food and service, as always! We have eaten here for many years. The food is consistently good and always fresh whether its traditional Mexican or one if their daily specials. Delicious fresh salsa and chips, too!

While the decor is your typical Mexican look the noise level makes it impossible to hear the person next to you. It's a nice idea that they bring in entertainment but the place is much to small for the full out equipment. I've been there 3x and have vowed not to return. The food is average at an average price.... More
