The salsas were very good... Especially the spicy version. Food was as good or better than many of the other places I've patronized. Would come back again.

Tasty food! Fast service. Their steak Fajitas are outstanding! My husband & I definitely recommend the restaurant on Keokuk in Iowa City. We've never eaten at the other locations.

service is slow, but it's a cute little space that's locally owned. Good salsa!

It's a nice place with great food and every once in a while they have a mariachi band.

Your clothes will smell like grease after you leave. I've had to wash my clothes, including my coat when I got home.

From Our Editors

Arguably, any meal is made even better with a hearty margarita on the side. With several flavors and top-shelf tequilas at the ready, the crew at Cactus Mexican Restaurant & Cantina mixes up their regular and special margaritas to diners' specifications. Back in the kitchen, chefs create their traditional Mexican plates and American-style Mexican dishes, with appetizers that include a trio of dips and a giant piles of nachos. Meals then graduate to big plates of seafood, burritos, or sizzling fajitas before desserts tempt diners into abandoning their enchilada-only diets for something sweeter.
