4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The brunch menu was very satisfactory. The potatoes were awesome. The Chipotle gravy was very good. It may be too spicy for some, but for me it was just great. I do not understand the comments of the food being bland, it was very tasty. The others in the party were equally satisfied with their meal, and especially their margaritas.

Recently remodeled, Cactus feels twice the size. The food remains awesome as well as the bar selections. Definitely start with the house made guacamole to start while checking out the menu that has many options for any taste. A great place for date night or happy hour with friends.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. It is a go to place for us. The atmosphere is colorful but can be a bit noisy when busy. If you are 21+ the bar is a good alternative for seating when the restaurant is crowded. My favorite dish is the Tacos Camarones and they also make the best Tortilla Soup! Do try... More

Always crowded, signifying the popularity of the place and its food...best salsa north of Mexico! Good place for a vegetarian.

This restaurant has recently been renovated and is worth a stop by. The bar has been moved to the opposite end and is much bigger than before. A definite improvement and expansion to the entire place with increased seating inside and out. The food is more of a Tex Mex style, is good but pricey for the amount you get.... More

Cactus has expanded and the new look works! There still was a slight wait but they'll text you when your table's available so you can wander the cute shops on the street. Staff is friendly and helpful, cocktails were delicious and food was good. A nice experience all around.

I first found this restaurant two years ago, our experience then Was awesome, we decided to try it again on our way out of town, it did not disappoint. Although it was crowded I was glad that we were able to sit outside. It was a beautiful day and we love to people watch so sitting outside was perfect. Our... More

Cactus was hopping with people --a good sign! I ordered the Mexican style street tacos--house made tortillas filled with spicy chorizo, potatoes & nopales, and pork. I also enjoyed the Apple smoked chicken flautas! The flautas were on a bed of queso blanco & lime vinaigrette and topped with baby arugula. Delicious! Cactus gets my highest recommendation.

Cactus had a neat feature where they took my cell phone number to text me when my table was ready. I also installed the NOWAIT app on my phone and could track where we were in the wait. Park Lane has neat shops to wander through while you're waiting on a pleasant summer evening. The food was fine; nothing spectacular.... More
