We'd been meaning to stop in for quite some time and had a visit today in the rain for lunch. I'm glad we stopped in - everything was superb. The new renovation is clean and smartly executed, the food was excellent, the service was terrific and the staff were very kind at welcoming us and explaining the menu. Some recommendations... More

I can never decide what to get, because everything always looks good. I can be a picky eater, but always find food I enjoy.

My wife and I went on a Saturday afternoon so we could eat before an event at a local book store. We were greeted immediately and seated by a very friendly gentleman. We ordered chips (very fresh tasting) and salsa (I bet it's made there) with fresh cilantro in it. We both had the ginger beer; it is non-alcoholic and... More

Food is always nicely prepared, never feel it is slopped onto the plate as with some competitors. Never bland-seasoned well, fresh ingredients, pleasant atmosphere, service always accommodating.

I have been to Cactus many times over the years and it is always one of my favorite go-to Mexican restaurants. There are many interesting and creative selections on the menu. The food is always very fresh and artfully presented. I love the way they do their rice and beans. There is a vegetable crudité option to add to the... More

Food is beautifully artistically presented and wonderfully flavorful. Salmon was done to perfection and picture perfect. It's almost always busy most evenings of the week. Atmosphere is somewhat noisy due to higher number of people in the a erGe amount of space. Large number of windows keep it flooded with natural light. Wouldn't call it an intimate restaurant for a...

It is so incredibly hard to find quality Mexican food this far north, but Cactus definitely delivered. My fiancé and I enjoyed our meals immensely! I recommend any of the tacos. The service was friendly and fast! We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but we went across the street to Lady Yum to buy macaroons for... More

Cactus is a good go-to if you want Americanized-Mexican food. The atmosphere is higher quality (feel out of place in sweats...) and it's not inexpensive by any means. Most of the dishes I've had have been good but my favorite is the Chile Rellenos - so cheesy and delicious! I wouldn't recommend Cactus for truly authentic Mexican food or a... More

Order some sipping tequila here. They have a great offering. The roasted jalapenos are very spicy and delicious. We tried three different plates and loved them all.
