We stopped for lunch the other day and had enough food for two meals! I had an excellent pastrami sandwich with sweet potatoes fries. Always one of my favorites! Jacks didn't disappoint!!! My husband had a cup of chicken tortilla soup and a tuna sandwich. Now let me tell you if he says it was good then that is exactly... More

We ate at Cactus Jack's while passing through Indio, CA. The food was good enough, although I thought I was ordering pork ribs and got beef ribs because of a poorly written specials sign. The drinks were great and really fast out of the bar.

Cactus Jacks offers great food at a reasonable cost and the Indio location is an unknown gem to the seasonal crowds. Menu selection has something for everyone. Service was outstanding.

We ate here a number of times because it is next door to our hotel. The good was good and it's a nice place for breakfast or to have a drink. Pretty good wifi too.

A local friend shared this gem with me. It's a local favorite. I'm allergic to flour and sugar so it's not always easy to find restaurants that will work with me to eat food without sauces, flour or sugar. Our server had no problem and made the dinner a very pleasant experience for all of us. Their prime rib is... More

Went for lunch and drinks before going to the Desert Trip concert. A lot of locals complaining about the crowds from the concert (and all the revenue we brought) but that's not Cactus Jack's fault. Food was good but I was hoping for more SW or Mexican choices. Drinks were stiff and I'd definitely come when in the area again.

After checking 2 sources, TripAdvisor and another popular site, we decided on this restaurant as it was close and we wanted some simple bar food and drinks. A bit unsure as the atmosphere had a dark 60s lounge theme. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We ordered off the bar menu: wedge salads, prime rib sliders, BBQ ribs, French... More
