We go here often when in the mood for Mexican. We love that we can bring out own tequila and make margaritas. We always get the Cactus Blue Trio and the Shrimp fajitas. Both are delicious! Also get the gauc to go with your complimentary chips and salsa. We recommend making reservations and ask for a table away from the door if it is cold outside (there is a draft).

We went to Cactus Blue based on a lot of reviews of this place being the best place in the Valley for Mexican food. We came away extremely disappointed. My wife and I lived in North Carolina for a while and they had some fantastic Mexican food (many Mexican immigrants in the Durham area). When we went to Cactus Blue we felt that the food was very bland considering what we were used to. We haven't been back, and I can't say we would recommend anyone going there.

My family enjoyed our Mexican night at Cactus Blue. For a Monday night, they were surprisingly busy! The food was delicious and plentiful, and the pico de gallo and guacamole were flavorful, fresh, and seemed homemade. We each ordered different items and everyone was pleased. The steak fajitas, chicken chimichanga,, and veggie tostadas were all that we expected. The BYOB policy adds to the pleasures, if you remember to bring your beverages! We found the service to be friendly but slow, probably due to several large tables of diners that might have been unexpected. Reservations at this place are recommended,but not required. We found the meal had good value and I recommend this restaurant as an alternative to other chain Mexican places.
