“Fresh ingredients being the key!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

This was a nice find while we traveled to Baton Rouge. The Cactus Cafe is a family friendly mexican restaurant that clearly uses the freshest of ingredients. The food was excellent and the salsa was very good. The only disappointment was the beans, they were watery. On our next visit to Baton Rouge, we will eat here again.

“Good Food! Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

The wife and I visited on Mar 16, 2012.

Good food, cold beer, tasty margaritas, very reasonable prices, and excellent service.

Chips and salsa were great.

Try the beef and cheese nachos with fresh jalapenos on the side.

“Excellent service and pretty good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2009

This isn't the absolute best mexican food I've ever eaten but its pretty good. The prices are reasonable and the service is amazing. The manager is always on site so he keeps a good eye on his employees. I've seen him cleaning and waiting tables when his restaurant is full and to me that's pretty impressive. If you get the chance stop in and grab a bite to eat.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2009

I use to love Cactus, but they have changed and not for the better.
The quality has gone down and the prices have gone up.
Once a loyal customer, I will not go back until they put the customer before the pocketbook.
