First the food: The mushroom tacos where spicy and excellent but really didn't give you very much mushrooms, the roast pork and pineapple was great even though the pork was slightly over-cooked and the crunchy fish taco was awesome. Chips were good served with an...More

Stopped here for lunch several times, they have good lunch deals that are both tasty and good value. I like their burritos and quesadillas. Service is generally fine, place recently has been pretty empty around lunch time. They have a handful of TVs too and...More

We went out for dinner and at a friends suggestion tried Cactus Zone. We walked in and were immediately greated by friendly servers. The homemade chips arrived right away. They were warm and even had a little kick to them. I had a chimichanga. It...More

I guess I've had more Mexican street food than most people (along with European and Asian food as well) and I'd say GO. Excellent 3 taco lunch, carne wonderfully marinated and grilled, as is the shrimp. Very tasty! Drinks are strong and delicious. Compared to...More

Overall, nothing was really standout. It's a great concept to be able to pick out the individual street tacos you want to make your own plate, but there was nothing fantastic that would make me crave going again.

Established in 2012 We are a family owned business. We have created a 'concept' restaurant with the idea of bringing the flavors from the streets of Mexico to the Midwest in a hip, urban setting. We offer an elaborate taco menu served 'Tapas style' and serve a number of dinner platters and deserts using authentic Mexican preparations. We also offer a wide selection of medium to high-end tequila's and cocktails to provide you a true 'Taco and Tequila' experience.We have spent months perfecting our recipe's for each menu item. Each recipe is unique and not found commonly in other Mexican chain restaurants. Our focus is on freshness and flavorful, marinated meats and veggies grilled to perfection. We top that with street inspired toppings and home-made sauces to bring out the flavor of the meats. You get more of what you truly desire. Tasty foods with authentic preparations. Our signature line-ups of salsa's and guacamole's have already become local favorites.OPEN FOR LUNCH | Tue - Thu: 11:30a - 10p | Fri - Sat: 11:30a - 11p | closed Monday & Sunday
