“Favorite Mexican Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Not your average Mexican food restaurant. I always get the Yuca Tacos - pico, steak, avacado, and soft shell taco. Very good. Chips are brought out warm. They make their own. Salsa isn't my favorite, but ask for pico instead. Always busy, be prepared to wait during busy lunch and dinner times. Try the bar to avoid the wait.

“Reasonable price”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

Good Mexican food at a reasonable price. It fairly run of the mill Tex-mex. Better than average food. Good atmosphere and very good prices for this part of town.

“GREAT SOUTHWEST MEX”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Consistently good food & service. If you are a local, you probably have one of their coupons for espinaca spinach dip. Great way to start your meal. Always fresh & prepared exactly as you want. They do special requests. If it's not on the menu, just ask. They can probably do it.

“Great Combo's for a really Good Price”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Cactus Grill is one of those short of overlooked and underutilized spots in Shawnee Mission. It has great food, always served quite promptly and their chips and espinaca is to die for as you wait for your main dish.
My wife and I usually can order a burrito or enchilada combo with a beef taco and split it for a very value priced meal. You can get lots more from the ala carte menu and I recommend trying several different things. The quisadilla is very good, with or without adding chicken to the cheese. Eat it with your hands and it will fill you up.
