Probably we've been coming here for 20 years. A home-town favorite. Chips and salsa for starters. Good sized portions of tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc. with all the colorful condiments. I appreciate the good guacamole, the envueltos de mole, the Mexican trio. Desserts look amazing, but we're sated with the main dishes. Very cheery artwork and always clean. Prompt service, even...

In an unassuming strip mall just off of Route 309 between Allentown and Philadelphia in Souderton, PA there's a hidden gem. El Cactus doesn't look like much from the outside, but if you're lucky enough to venture in you'll be rewarded with a really great dining experience. From the complimentary basket of house made nachos to start your meal to... More

We have dined here almost weekly for years now. This is a favorite BYOB of ours with consistently authentic Mexican food. Salino and Miguel share chef's duties, and the wait staff is always pleasant. The restaurant is in a strip mall, so it is not very big (~12 tables). The restaurant fills quickly, and periodically they get jammed up with... More

Love the chicken tacos, p, and the enchiladas! Their homemade salsa is very good too. Service is friendly and fast. They always have great specials.

Complimentary Homemade Salsa and chips to start off, followed by great Mexican Food! We got the shrimp tacos and beef chimichanga served with mexican rice and black beans. Everything was very mild but flavorful. The churro dessert is a must have, so good!

I've passed by this place for years but never tried or heard anything about it. I finally researched El Cactus on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We stopped in for take out at lunchtime. There were a few customers dining, and the sole server was very friendly and helpful. We placed our takeout order and spoke... More

I have been here twice and each time I am completely satisfied with the food quality and the decor of the restaurant. It is the most authentic Mexican food I have had outside of Mexico. They are also BYOB which I didn't know until my most recent visit. It is a hole in the wall place with not much seating... More

Always looking for "half way points" to meet our kids who live at the other end of the county, we wanted to try a different place. This is an easy-on-easy-off from Rt309 and very convenient. I had made reservations because we had 5 adults and one baby in the group, but it was mid week and not too crowded. The... More
