My wife had the lion fish sandwich which she really enjoyed. I had the bacon cheese burger which was outstanding. Both sandwiches were sloppy and multi napkin snacks. There are some chairs around but tables would be a big help - I think next time I will take my meal to go. Fresh and friendly. It's worth a stop for... More

Our family enjoyed lunch and the view is beautiful! We had the lionfish burger which was a huge hit. Our son who wanted a burger was happy until he took a bite of the lionfish and wished he had ordered it instead. The owner was very pleasant and efficient. Our daughter enjoyed her cheeseburger. Prices reasonable but if you want... More

Lion fish burger. Same-day fresh and delicious. Apparently the beef burgers are good, too but we went for the fish. Warning, don't feed the iguanas.

We were intrigued by the fresh lionfish sign, so we stopped by this food truck next to the beach. It did not disappoint, by far the best sandwich we've ever had. The Lionfish was grilled perfectly, the season was great and whatever sauce she put on is delicious. Fresh bun, tomato and lettuce...top notch! We also had burgers another day... More

This roadside stop offers freshly cooked burgers and hot sandwiches. We enjoyed a tasty burger and lion fish sandwich. The woman running the food truck is very friendly as well. Thanks for the great lunch!

We visited on April 6. The service was very friendly and fast. We had lion fish sandwiches. They were delicious. They were 12.00 a piece. I think 8.00 a piece might be more appropriate. Someone else had the chicken wrap and thought it was good. We would definitely go back.

Cactus Blue on the Beach was quite nice. We truly enjoyed the lionfish burgers--we had never had these before, and they were delicious! The food truck is fairly small with limited options, but the food was awesome. We personally wished they served beers--would have been nice after a full day in the sun... The only things we didn't enjoy were... More
