Description: Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.

“Good food, good price”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a great restaurant on the lakeside, and on warm days you can sit outside on the deck. The menu is excellent and offers a variety of dishes, all at reasonable prices. Specials are always available. Live entertain-ment is offered several nights a week. Family friendly, too.

“great fried pickles”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great spot to stop after a day of skiing! Brandon at the bar was friendly, as well as the other staff, quick service, everyone seemed to know all the locals. The food was great, especially the fried pickles, which are hard to find and harder to find good ones! The pickles won the prize. Only complaint was when we arrived on the second night (because we so enjoyed it the first night) there were about 4 or 5 kids sitting at the bar eating...pretty sure kids should not be sitting at the bar, taking up far too much bar space and don't like to see kids sitting at a bar anywhere. Other than that Jack's takes the prize for a great dinner, atmosphere and top notch wait staff.

“Good Mexican”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

A fun restaurant to go to if you like Mexican food, but they offer many other items as well. Very popular, good food and a fun atmosphere for the younger crowd. Both locations in Manchester and Laconia are great.

“Go early on in the week and enjoy some great specials!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

They always have great specials Sunday through Thursday and they have a wonderful "rewards" program that gets even better during Mon - Wed! The food is good and the atmosphere is always fun. Tuesday's are a favorite for my husband and I ($1.99 tacos; $2.99 bottled beer; $3.99 Margaritas!!) because it offers something for each of us and the price is right!

“A little but of yummy!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We usually go here after work to enjoy a little of happy hour. I love all of their drinks and try to sample a different one every time. We love the Mexican cuisine and are always happy with our choices,
