Cactus Cantina is one of Dubai's original old haunts located on the Satwa roundabout one of the older more established parts of Dubai.
As well as serving good Mexican food at very reasonable prices it is also well known as a bar, and many people go there for a drink and not to eat. The magerita's are legendary!

If you enjoy good Mexican food and in Dubai, try the Cactus Cantina. The restaurant is a reminder of Texas Mexican food. The fajitas, chicken enchiladas, not to mention margaritas are simply fantastic. In July 2011, I went to Dubai for a short trip and experienced the Cactus Cantina at least three times. I went for a trip again in June 2012 and went twice. The staff are freindly, the business clean and they even have a buffet. Delicious food, great service.

Walking into the kitschy dated restaurant, you might be scared off by dated ambiance but the brilliant food, wholesome service, top notch frozen margaritas and great views will make your visit worthwhile. Be sure to try the skillet nachos. Be careful, portions are huge.

Cactus Cantina has a great buffet on Sunday evenings for less than 40AED! The food is excellent and the service superb. Personally speaking the salsa at Cactus Cantina is my favorite in the UAE. A special note: private catering is also available. Check website for special deals too.
