"The food was very basic and lacked any flavor or sauces. The service however was very nice and prompt. The tables inside seem to be positioned badly. We sat inches away from the dispense bar which was a very chaotic area for the servers. We also had an extremely loud table behind us that was so close I couldn't get in or out of my chair. If the food was better I would come back."

"I write a food blog and I didn't find myself wanting to cover Cactus as a gem or disappointment. It's basically Mexican food a step above Taco Bell. The service was good. The atmosphere is plain, not a lot of ambiance, but by no means a turn off. Me and my girlfriends just wanted a cheap eat , a drink special, and a place where we could sit and talk , and it served all 3 purposes. I'd return for the same reasons. I would Not however recommend the spice, mango margarita."

"Do not eat here, food is horrible, cold and unsatisfactory. The food was lacking in the authentic Mexican flavor that one would hope for from a Mexican joint. I can garantee your disappointed if you eat here."
