Service was bad, shrimp diablo is the worst I've ever had and still gave it three stars. Everything else we ordered was really good. Carni asada was excellent and enough chips to be full prior to the meals. Never order the shrimp diablo. It is by far the worst ever. It was like a block of cheese with some shrimp and a hot pepper toss ... read more

Huge portions and great happy hour! Our server Katelyn was busy but attentive. She kept the drinks coming and the food came out fast!

Food was good but atmosphere was lacking. Two tips if you want to get to the next level: 1. Turn the music down and change the station. You're a Mexican restaurant. Play Salsa and Latin music not top 40. 2. Wait staff needs uniforms. Couldn't tell the wait staff from the customers. Uniforms can be as simple as the same T -shirt ... read more

I love Mexican food and since moving to the area I've been on the lookout for a new go to restaurant. And I'm so happy to say I finally found it in Cactus Cantina. On my first visit I stopped in with my Mom for lunch, the place was busy so we thought it must be good. Our assumptions were correct, the food was phenomenal! From the Sal ... read more

Pretty Consistent, Pretty Popular with Locals
Always go there when in Pensacola because I am taken there. Might not go otherwise. Not the greatest Mexican food but OK. Usually crowded with good drink specials. I don't drink but I suspect drinks are weak, pretty but weak. Always get the enchiladas with...More ... read more

this place was awesome and i highly recommend it to basic white people. the texas fajitas were very good except for the shrimp part. i would not recommend going ot this restaurant with anyone named josh torres becaue he'll just criticize anything you do or say.

Eat here two or three times a week. Food awesome, prices fair,and serving nice size. Love the Fajita chicken salad. The Fajitas for two is way more than two can eat. I take leftovers home and eat for lunch the next day.

Not sure why this place got a 3 star rating on Yelp, but found this to be a good value for Mexican food. Everyone in our party went away full without eating everything on the plate for entree prices just over $12. The chips, salsa...More ... read more

Stopped here last night just outside the airport.  Convenient.  Were a bit hesitant with th 3 star rating but found this to be decent Mexican with a decent price.  Couldn't give it a 5 star but more 5 than 3.

Come here often in spite of a half hour drive. Love it! Great food, great/friendly service, upbeat atmosphere. Yummy guac and queso! Great place to hang out and watch football or other favorite sports. Try it. You'll like it!

Tried for the first time on a Friday night, so of course there was a full house but it definitely didn't feel that way! We we're seated in a matter of minutes, had our chips and salsa before we even got a menu, and had our food in under 10 minutes! Excellent service and good food! We will definitely be back!

This is a great place to watch sports or have dinner with a large group of people. My family often goes here for birthdays. Their chicken tortilla soup & fajitas are delicious. Also, their chips, salsa, guacamole, & cheese dip is addictive.
