It mixes unpretentious, hometown feel with some interesting, creative menu choices. I like that it has a very homey, local feel but it's not just boring, traditional meat and three that you typically find in a local place. I have always enjoyed my dinners here...More

When my youngest son and I had time for just us, he chose to go to Blue Cactus. They truly do have the best mac'n'cheese in the world. The prices are a little higher than average for Murfreesboro. I ordered a burger. It was outstanding.

The food was decent but was far from what I think of when I see a restaurant ranked #1 on trip advisor in the Mexican Restaurant class. It’s not even a Mexican restaurant.

You just get the fondue appetizer! Absolutely amazing! I haven’t had a dish there that I haven’t loved. Great place. A must-go when in a Murfreesboro!

Service was fast and efficient. Devon greeted us and took good care of us. We ordered the Bang Bang Chicken Tacos, and the Cajun blackened Tilapia. We also had wings for appetizers. We will definitely come back again! Thanks Devon for your friendliness and attention...More

The food was goid but lacked the Cajun spicing I would have liked to have tasted. The Boudin was a bit disappointingly but we will most likely try again.
