This place is great! Very tasty and huge meals, good (non-alcoholic) drinks, and service with a smile - a real family feel. Went for lunch on a Sunday.

After spending an hour and a half ordering and waiting we eventually left this ordinary looking place empty handed. The waiter assured us our food was on the verge of arriving, which ten minutes later he corrected to it hadn't even been started. Not much of an apology from the haughty owner, no gesture on the overpriced and very average... More

In their original location long time ago, their food was amazing, moved and the food has been coming down hill, stoped going months ago because of this... Food was absolutley not the same.

If you want a good margarita? wait till you get back home. There is no such thing as a good margarita in latin america. if you want a 10$ margarita with no flavor and only 10 oz. this is your place. I would not order food after going to this very over priced place. will not be back

This is a very good Mexican TexMex restaurant near Parque Washington. Their margaritas are good, but for $10 USD, the drink was really too small. The salsa and chips to start things off was great. It was medium level of spiciness. The steak with cheese jalapeno sauce was delicious. The baked potato was really good. It had a smokiness flavor... More

I found this place a couple of years ago in my first visit to Barranquilla and I absolutely fell in love with the place. They have this burrito called the "Burro Loco" and its REALLY good. I went there on a Friday night and it was a pretty awesome atmosphere. The margaritas are incredible! I am planning to go again... More

When I go to Barranquilla I always go there more than one time. My friends and I enjoy the "CACTUS'S TIME" . The prizes are good, the food fantastic and the Margaritas the best.
