Great fun place to eat. Family restaurant with themed nights, like $2.00 Burger Night and Taco Night. A generous happy hour and numerous "Meat" raffles.

The Cactus was a very nice looking place with a big menu selection, the interior was very nice and the atmosphere was really nice and the service was very good. The problem was that all these good things end when your food comes. I really...More
