Our go-to local eatery

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

Consistently good food and service. Fresh salsa and guacamole are excellent. I've tried about 1/3 of the menu and have never been disappointed. Great place! BYOB

This is not just my favorite Mexican restaurant, its my favorite restaurant all together! I wish the restaurant was bigger, but it has a truly authentic Mexican ambiance. The food is outstanding. I always get either the enchillada or the chimichanga. (sorry about the spelling haha) I wish they would just buy a lot somewhere and build a larger establishment.
