Review from a local
Absolute best experience today!! From ordering, incredible food and service, refills brought out with several lemons because an attentive server noticed that was how I dressed my first glass, to boxes, cups and bags for to-go. That my friends is how you stay in business...More ... read more

Good Food!

the food was mostly delicious. the server said everything was made in house. I have no doubt that is true of their version of chicken soup. the broth was almost addictive and it was so full of delicious shredded chicken, and contained black beans, avocados and usually included rice. they held the rice out of my order. the only reason ... read more

Great food. I love their margaritas. The service was definitely lacking at first but they are making obvious improvements. The fajitas are wonderful.

We have been going to Cactus Cantina for about 6 months. The food is excellent, priced good, and quantity is more than you should eat. The chips are the best in town. Very thin and warm and delivered to the table before you order drinks. We eat here at least twice a week and always sit in the bar. The waitress is super friendly with ... read more

One of if not my favorite Mexican restraunt. Service is always quick and polite. The prices are on average with the area bit the quality and amount of food that you receive is beyond the competition.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida is very appreciative of Cactus Cantina's generosity. Every time we need a raffle item for a fundraising event, they are more than willing to donate. And their food is delicious, too! If you are a non-profit and need an item for your event, just ask for Juan Parades and he will be willing to help!

This place was great. Our flight was cancelled and it was close to the airport so we went despite the mixed reviews. The hostess was friendly and we only waited for 5 minutes for a table. The place was packed due to 99 cent tacos on Monday's. We are vegetarian and I had an awesome veggie burrito with enchilada sauce. It came out fa ... read more

First off, everyone was so nice and welcoming, our server was so great, secondly the chips and salsa were to die for, had 2 bowls by myself, third— the cactus grits were AMAZING and so was the California burrito. Also if you are 21+ the gringo juice was a fruity treat! We will most definitely be back!!!

Went here yesterday for my 25th birthday, and even though they close at 10 and we got there right at 9, all of the staff were friendly and didn't rush us at all.

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

This is one of my favorite places to stop when I'm in Pensacola. The atmosphere is friendly the food is good. The staff is welcoming.

Huge portions and great happy hour! Our server Katelyn was busy but attentive. She kept the drinks coming and the food came out fast!
Jewell Levine via google.com - Oct 10, 2017
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

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.
