A year later since my last visit. Desperate again for fresh food after dealing with Valley Fire-related moving. Not any better than last time, and now I think I'll remember why I didn't like it last time. We ate here on a Friday -- bad mistake. I ordered the apple avocado chicken salad. The plates look fresh, live lettuce and... More

Easy in and out - only 10 +/- tables - a "smiley" place - highlight: a Salsa bar with 6 choices, never seen that before! Good service and food - I'll go back next time in Clearlake.

We ate dinner here. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff is super nice. The building does not have a sign.

Exceptional food, very good prices and service. Physical setting is dated and shabby, but if you can get beyond that, the rest is superb.

A friend comes here regularly. A family operation, everyone hardworking. Dark inside, just like in Mexico. Bathroom is clean.

Small place but the food is great I like to sit out side under the shade .Hubbie had the salmon taco with black beans said it was great as usual. I had nachos just the best. We love this place.

Its small but it also has outside seating. Its clean, does only lunch and the food taste great! I had a mango salad (delicous), my daughters had burritos and anchilotas and they loved them.

The service at this tiny place I will say was real good. The food isn't bad either. The patio is out of the heat and small quarters of the dining room, but the flies were the big let down. That patio needs to be screened in, no one could argue that I would bet on. Salsa bar, need to clean... More

Shared the fresh crab quesadilla (huge!), and hubby had a soft beef street taco while I enjoyed the mahi mahi taco. They also have a fresh salsa bar, indoor and outdoor options and superb food!

Cactus Grill is a fairly nondescript restaurant with a pleasant patio. The menu contains the usual Mexican fare plus some pretty unique selections such as Greek quesadillas. The special for the evening we were there was asparagus quesadillas. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived they were out of those, so I enjoyed their chili relleno. The food lacked in presentation...
