We live in Darwin and dont't have Cactus Jacks, so we love to go when we visit Cairns.
It's certainly not authentic mexican but always get a good feed. Tueday $10 all you can eat chilli night is great (as are the jugs of sangria) Our 6 year old loves it.
Always service with a smile.
Music can sometimes be a little loud.

A group of friends and I decided to dine at Cactus Jacks as a spare of the moment decision. The external appearance of the restaurant is slightly tacky and the inside is styled to appear like a yankee saloon. Overall the food was very bland, the service was unmemorable and the food was cheap, cheap as in nasty cheap. I wouldnt make an effort to return.

I quite like cactus jacks - it certainly isn't a fancy restaurant, but it is a fun place to visit with fairly good service. I have been a few times, but the best time to go is on Tuesdays when there is all-you-can-eat chilli for $10. The chilli comes with corn chips, rice, cheese, tomato and lettuce and the wait staff will happily bring replacements. The chilli isn't bad.

Too loud for conversation. Airconditioner blasting, really? Fairly ordinary, but filling fare. Cheery and helpful staff. Would probably eat there again.
