“Great value get together”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a staff member farewell at The Cactus and all enjoyed the meal. It's a real "pub" atmosphere and OK for a typical lunch but don't expect anything special. Hotel staff were very insistent that lunch finished at 2PM. Cheap enough though for a lunch get together.

“Best place in rocky by far”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Loveeee, love love the crooked cactus! Best place in town by far, best food (wish they'd bring back their delicious tostada though) and great atmosphere. Prices are good for how large your meals are.. I'd choose crooked cactus over anywhere, anyday!

“Great authentic food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love this venue for it's ambiance and food. The prices are reasonable, facilities well maintained and cocktails worth trying.

It is not 'child friendly' with no facilities like a kids room for younger children who aren't interested in sitting still...so they'll use the pillows to pillow fight at the table.

Also, at different times we've found the service lacking. All in all, on a child free night, it's a place we'd like to return to.

“Friendly staff, tasty food, amazing sangria!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Dined on a Sunday night, quickly seated, drinks (jug of delicious sangria and a beer) ordered and delivered. Very polite waiter. Food was delicious, my burrito stuffed full of beef! Ordered the 'sweet nachos' as dessert and OH MY GOSH... AMAZING!!! highly recommend if you have a sweet tooth. Good menu options, not too spicy, great decor, pleasant staff, will definitely return.

“Fun Pace, Great Mexican”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This place is always packed and a lot of fun! I have never received a bad meal and for those lovers of Mexican it is the perfect spot. There is a large Mexican selection and the food is always full of flavour. The prices are reasonable and the cocktails are also good. The atmosphere is fun, upbeat however can be very loud so its something to keep in mind if wanting a more relaxed quiet setting. Perfect place for the family, or birthday celebrations!!
