I'd go back for another serving of the Cactus tacos in a heartbeat. That pork leg with the cheese ... yum. Salsas are great too.

So, during our three weeks trip we rated every day another plate of nachos in another restaurant. The one of Cactus was by far the best of all. Moreover, the restaurant was cozy, the burrito's delicious as well and the people very welcoming. Definitely go!

We had a wonderful burrito lunch at Cactus. The portion was big and the food was tasty, all set in a laid back environment. Burritos are probably around $7 US and for a lot of food.

We stopped in for dinner one evening. Small quaint place. Great food a little pricey for the portion size. Great location for a couple to eat.
