Atmosphere and service are relaxed and fun. Drinks and service fine, but as a seasoned connoisseur of southwestern cuisine, the tortillas do not make the grade, dried out and look like they are store bought, not freshly made. Stick to the burgers!

I have been going to the Thirsty Cactus for many years - the food is great and the atmosphere can't be beat. The newly renovated patio is perfect for drinks with friends on summer evenings. The restaurant and the menu has been updated in recent years, and is a little pricier than it used to be for the quality of the food and the portions. That being said, I have always enjoyed my meals here, especially the tex-mex "comfort food" menu items. I wouldn't expect five-star level quality service or food, but the Thirsty Cactus is great for a decent meal or night out.

I have eaten here several times; every dish I've tried is nicely prepared and most tasty, from soups to sandwiches to nachos and cheese!

I have been going to the Cactus since it first opened. Love the place. The staff is always friendly. Cathy and Roni do an excellent job of getting around to greet people and make sure they are happy. If something isn't just right, they will try to fix it. They serve the best Fajitas this side of Texas. Peter, the chef, does an awesome job mixing up the specials.
They recently added some extra seating in the back room and removed the pool tables. An excellent idea.
And in the summer, they have the best patio in town.
Cheers to the Cactus Crew.
