“Just nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Cactus is a nice place that is not quite Mexican. The service was great, I mean really great. Our waitress, Misty, was incredibly helpful and all the other wait staff was eager to help as well. The food was mediocre. I did not like the taste of the rice AT ALL. It tasted like fake Spanish rice, if that makes sense. I wasn't a fan of the salsa either, or the green enchiladas, but the guacamole and the tortilla soup were great. Also, the bloody Mary I had was not good at all, maybe it had too much spice. To be fair, I am Mexican and know what authentic Mexican food should taste like, so I already had a little bit of a bias :/

“Great carne asada!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

I had chance to visit Cactus only once for dinner with other colleagues and considering the large group of people, the service was great! Classical mexican food with a particular suggestion for their "carne asada". One of the most tasty version of this dish! Recommended!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I had the squash empanadas. The black beans had pumpkin seeds and goat cheese. Boy was it good.

“Great Place for Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

After picking up our daughter at the airport, we were looking for a place for brunch before a trip to REI. Cactus turned out to be a great choice. There are lots of great "breakfast" choices, plus the full menu of Mexican fare. Try the "Sage" cocktail for a special treat. Service was a little slow, but the food and drinks were both excellent.

“Eggcellent brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Wife, daughter, and I had a Sunday brunch here. They started off with a couple of wonderful cocktails; need to go back and try some more! The meal itself was very good; tasy, well prepared and well presented. The service was very good, too. The only "fly in the ointment", and it wasn't really that bad, is that the coffee was rather ordinary. It wasn't bad, was not was not nearly as good as the rest of the meal.
