We had been there several times and the food was amazing! This time, 2 of the 3 meals at our table had bad beef. I told the waitress and she acknowledged someone previously complaining about a steak that smelled on the down side of bad....More

Interesting concept, a hybrid restaurant of Mexican and Cajun! My wife really enjoyed her meal, and the queso was top notch. I should have ordered a Mexican or Cajun dish, but I made a mistake and ordered the flat iron steak. My experience with the...More

Tried the Cajun fondue. Awesome taste. Spicy but not overwhelming. Lots of flavor with crawfish, spinach and mushrooms. Finished off with the goat cheese and shrimp pasta. More great taste! Had a great summer drink with coconut and peach. Can’t remember the name. Loved it!...More

Our first visit and we’ll be back when we’re in town. Devon was an excellent server - friendly, knowledgeable and very polite. The Bloody Mary steak quesadillas were great. We were not disappointed!!

Food was fantastic. I had fried goat cheese salad. My husband had the chicken chimichangas. Happy hour prices after 2:00. Great beer selection. Will definitely go back. Service was wonderful.

We ate here upon a recommendation from a friend. The food was delicious but our service was lackluster. Our waitress didn’t feel good and it showed in her slowness and lack of attention to her tables. My flat iron steak and potatoes were delicious as...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.
