Cactus Club is one of my favorite places to go for happy hour or drinks on a weekend night. The bartenders are very nice and the drinks are great. During happy hour, the appetizers are priced really well.
I've tried to eat there twice for lunch with friends, and we waited 10 minutes for someone to greet us. After waiting, we decided to leave and I haven't tried again.
Good times, good food.
I am a big fan of Mexican food and have had my fair share of burritos over the years, so you could say I have a pretty discerning palate when it comes to this type of food... and Cactus Club does not disappoint. The first several times my friends and I just went for drinks--Coronas/margaritas--and then when we had other college friends in town, we decided to splurge on a full dinner. The food was delicious, so we came back several times. We even spent one New Year's at Cactus Club! (Instead of champagne at midnight, they have margaritas :) It was super fun. Cactus Club is really a versatile place--great for after-work socializing, great for a fun weekend dinner, and also great for a special occasion! I highly recommend it.
I love the Cactus Club. I've had my fair share of happy hour get togethers here, and keep coming back.
First off, just go order the Horni Margarita. It's my drink of choice at Cactus. If you sit in the bar area, grab some half price appetizers Monday-Thursday from 4-7pm. I love the empanadas personally.
The one time I sat in the dining room, the service was awful. Our waitress abandoned us multiple times (while waiting to order, while waiting for the bill, and while waiting for her to come pick up the bill so we could leave), and each time came back and said that she just forgot about us. One time she let us know she had gone out back for a cigarette. Great.
After that, I haven't sat in the dining room again. Instead I opt for the bar area. Grab a high top, a margarita, and enjoy the fast service and good food and drinks!
Best Mexican food I've ever had!.
chicken and roasted corn quesadilla were excellent. chips and salsa were suprisingly wonderful. the chips and salsa paired well with my Heinekin beer. Margharita was good but not top tier. I will make it a point to make it back here next time I'm in town.
I thoroughly enjoyed this place when I was visiting Boston a couple weeks ago & sat on the patio for a late lunch. They're quesadilla menu is really extensive & you can make some strange options. I had avocados & black beans. SO good. I've tried already at home to recreate it! I recommend eating here.
Not so great.
This place is overrated. Classic margs are good but the specialties miss the mark. Border cafes chips are much better. The coconut shrimp has no flavor and the servie so so. Unless you have downtown shopping stick to border cafe.
