We were looking for a quick lunch and stumbled upon Cactus Jack's. Group had the nachos, quest dip, steak & cheese roll up and the southwest salad. All were great choices! The margaritas were delicious too. Service was very good.

This place advertises itself as offering Mexican food. It is not. The nachos were fair, but the food was definitely not MexicanMore

Had the Chipotle salad with steak, very tasty with a zesty dressing. We are weekly diners at CJ's, and of the many times we have this salad, this is the first time the portion control was draconian.

Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire.
