Boston >Cactus Club
“The atmosphere is comfortable and fun.”
“Good vegetarian selections, and the fried ice cream is a great way to top it off.”
“It's a great place to hang out after work, (half off all apps in the bar) and meet friends or coworkers.”
“was impressed with their friendly service, great food, and nice atmosphere.”
“The drink selection is great (frozen raspberry margs are my favorite).”
“The margaritas only have the best ingredients and when you think about how much other places charge for one, with just house tequlia (6-7 bucks) this place is pretty good.”
“Cactus Club knows how to do it right - from the great drink menu with delicious concoctions to the friendly and good looking staff you always leave here with a smile on your face.”
“The food is above average & when you put it all together along with very reasonable prices for Back Bay.”
“The staff is friendly and the service is quick (they keep my margarita glass full).”
Great staff, good food, disappointing margaritas.
I have had after-work drinks at the Cactus Club many times, the door and bar staff are always friendly. I normally just grab a beer or two and leave but I decided to take my out-of-town boyfriend for dinner one night. We were seated promptly outside on the patio. The complimentary chips and salsa are much better than what I have had anywhere else. I had a chicken wrap and he had fajitas... the food is good and more upscale than a normal Mexcian/Southwestern joint. Also our waiter was very nice and engaging, I was very impressed.
I have to say though that I was VERY disappointed with the margarita. I am no 'rita expert, but it was bad. It actually tasted worse than what you would get if you dumped grocery store mix in with tequila. I did order the standard, but I could not taste any tequila, despite the $7 price tag. It tasted like 95% mix. I actually had trouble finishing it, and it just came in a standard glass which took away from the ambiance. Perhaps the more upscale 'ritas are better but there "standard, very good" marg should taste like something, esp. considering they keep getting "Best Margartias in Town" awards.
Nacho Mama's Nachos. their nachos are giant. i like that the cheese is layered (not just on top) and melted all the way through. great spot to grab a beer and a pile of nachos.
Great Margaritas. Love the Cactus Club - Great drinks at a good price. Staff is always friendly and accomodating. I like to sit on the patio and people watch.
Avoid at all costs.
Oh my God! People have told me about this place since I moved to Boston -- "it's great -- very authentic!"
Food was disgusting and not hot enough. Margaritas tasted like cough syrup, even though they were made with Top-Shelf spirits. It makes me wonder how anyone could rate this above average as it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had! I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. I will never even THINK of returning.
Best Drinks Around. I've been there a few times for drinks and appetizers in the bar and have never been disappointed. (I think its even half priced food after work.) The margaritas are by far the best around and they have a huge specialty drink list. I love the nachos too.
Mediocre food. The food is distinctly mediocre. The salsa tastes like it?s straight out of a can and the Margaritas are made from a mix. The main dishes were flavorless and lacking in fresh ingredients. The service was pretty good.
Awesome Margaritas. Can't wait for the warm weather, there's nothing like an afternoon on the Cactus Club patio downing the best margaritas in town and people watching.
Great Scene. This place rocks. Great Margs. Great bartenders. However I went in the other day for lunch and they were playing some terrible country music and top 40 s**t that made me wanna leave before my food came. Loose that hillbilly s**t. Stick with the rock n roll you usually have on.
LOVED IT!. I'm not a huge Mexican food fan, but the Cactus Club had delicioius dinners and even better drinks. My friends and I drank yummy margheritas while waiting for our table. The place was packed, but the bartenders were fast and attentive.
Great margs!. I forgot how much I like this place! I went here recently for drinks and apps and it was SO good! The margaritas are delicious (not wimpy like at some places), the food was great and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Just a fun place to hang out. Kinda makes you forget about the cold winter outside...
