After a terrific day on the beach, we walked along the main street looking for something quick, simple inexpensive. We found Cactus Jack's, located almost across the street from Mangrove Jack's, was offering "all you can eat Chili" for $10, regular $19! It was hot and a real crowd pleaser. We had the last outside table at 6 pm. They have an extensive cocktail menu as well as Mexican foods. We were filled up after one bowl but I could imagine someone having another bowl of perfectly seasoned, on the mild side, beef chili without beans. Nice, friendly, knowledgeable staff and fast service that night allowed time to enjoy window shopping on the main street. It was a excellent value for the price!

This is a great restaurant, food excellent (the ribs to die for) the staff, mostly back packers are fantastic, great to hear the different accents and see when everyone comes from. If you are looking for 'flash' this isn't it, but for a really good evening out, it is really hard to pass up on this place

I must say i don't like Mexican but others wanted to dine here, but I was really surprised by the meal, it was tasty, well portioned (if not on the larger size) , the staff saw we had a couple of "active " children and went straight to work in making them happy - which they succeeded, a young blonde girl serving us first needed to smile and look as though at least she wanted the pay packet, as she was a total let down to the service, and was rather rude, but i could not fault the other staff they were excellent, the food came out in a timely manner and i loved the chicken wings, would visit again as the location is lovely, we sat outside, but could do with a make over for their furniture a bit shabby. well worth a try and i will be back again. Sorry due to the service from one staff member it brought my rating down.

We had a pleasant meal here, even with the pouring rain outside. We were quickly seated, and served our drinks and meal by very helpful staff. They even have heavier beers here...and the hot sauce is hot!

A cheap and simple meal which was enjoyable... Just a bit too much cheese for our liking. We went on chili night and the place was packed so no outside table service. Clearly more suited to the young backpacker market but we didn't mind, we enjoyed our meal.
