Nice rooftop patio and two levels inside. Food is $8 - burgers, tacos, Tex-Mex food, salads, etc. Busy place, service was fine, food was inexpensive and fast-foodish.

Tried this Mexican restaurant downtown, only to be told they moved from Melrose to downtown. Never ate at the other location. Liked the idea of all appies and entrees at $8. Started with the lime margarita and were OK, nice lime flavor. Really liked the size of the nachos for one which was a great size to share. The shrimp... More

A bunch of us were sitting around recently, and one of the group remarked that Crazy Cactus hadn't yet moved to their new location. They'd be open in their old location until about the end of December. That's an opportunity I just couldn't afford to pass up. I've always loved the Crazy Cactus. I loved sitting on their outdoor patio... More

Food and service took forever, and when it actually came, it was just typical hope your drunk so you enjoy it. Not very appealing. With that said I did actually warm up to other patrons tho. Rather enjoyed myself.

I don't know why the other reviewers are complaining, if you want a perfect meal, go to a fancy restaurant ! Me and my friends had so much fun there last Friday night, the drinks (Gringos ) were awesome and they did the trick! I would defiantly go back for round 2 ! Open Errr Day

Always a blast at this place, but last time was ticked with the 'bouncer' for skipping songs on the jute box because he didn't like them (after people had paid to listen to them). I know, it is something little and petty to talk about but what's the point of a jute box then? Hire a DJ.
