We went as a party of 6 and ordered several different dishes, all were amazing. Server was prompt and food arrival was fast for 6 dishes. Great drink menu to top the experience off.

The pumpkin enchiladas are exquisite. I've dined here several times and I am never disappointed. A must go location when I have visitors. Reservations highly recommended to ensure a table.

Very unhappy with my over-priced dining experience. Ordered a pork shoulder that was more than 50% solid fat and the portion was very small for the price to start with. the waiter simply explained that was how pork shoulder is, but I really doubt that someone would order this dish knowing what they were going to get. In addition to bad food (nobody else in my party of 5 were overly happy with their dishes), the waiter was not very good. Even though it was a weeknight and not crowded, he made us feel very rushed and seemed to be more interested in trying to sell us drinks than making sure that everything else was okay. It takes more than nice art on the walls and pleasant background music to make a good restaurant, but Cactus had little more to offer (other than good drinks).

Got a weird vibe as soon as we got there. We were slightly underdressed with two kids in tow, and they asked if outside was okay. I said sure. Once we were seated outside (we were the only ones seated out there at the time), we noticed there were two open tables for 4 on the inside and began wondering why we weren't offered those. The outdoor area wasn't even set up-the hostess sat us at a table with only 2 chairs and we had to pull from the other tables. My son said, "where am I supposed to sit?" There was lipstick on both our water glasses. The server didn't take them until we explicitly asked for new ones, after mentioning the lipstick 2-3 times at his next visit. My husband ordered a steak med-rare, it came out med to med-well, and was $35. I asked if the clams were spicy prior to ordering, having major acid reflux while pregnant. The server said they were definitely not, very mild. My dish was spicy enough to start me sweating. The portions were small. My husband questioned the quoted size of his steak. My son's mac and cheese was barely enough for a 4 year old. We left feeling disappointed with the food, slightly offended by the service, and ripped off for the price we paid (about $75 for 2 adults and 1 kids' dish and 1 drink), while leaving far from satisfied.

The place is nice the people are nice but the food is horrible, and it's not even mexican, and it's very very over priced on what you get, and the menu doesn't make sense the website says American mexican, my husband and I wasn't pleased with the food not one bit.

The quality of the food is okay, but the price is not. I ordered the big belly empanadas for something like $15 and got two minature empanadas on a few salad leaves. The dish was listed as a main dish, but felt like a small appetizer. Service was friendly. I recommend to spend your money elsewhere if you are looking for good value.

Great service {thanks Ali), took time and answered all question and made great recommendations. Fry bread and other apps were amazing. I had the steak and alomst licked my plate. A total home run. Wife said it was the best place we eaten since we moved here. Wowza! Only down side was it was cold inside. Drinks were also fab. Only wish I had room for desert...
