We are nacho lovers and went there to try them out. I have to admit that they were pretty good. Not a very big portion as I usually prefer them, but still a great appetizer and very delicious. Their fajita is also pretty good. I would def recommend coming here if you enjoy Mexican food. And the vibe on a Saturday night in there is worth going.

Service was good. Quality was good. Pricing of food and drinks about 10 to 15% above average. But I had a lovely evening. Parking also problematic. Worth a visit though. The food beats most other similar restaurants in long street area. The service gives it the extra star... Due to friendly service it's not average....

Really love the vibey atmosphere and awesome menu. I always have a great time here and end up staying until they're locking up the place. Affordable and fun and central.

I have visited the Fat Cactus many times and its always what you expect. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere enjoyable. If the saucy hot meal is what you looking for then this is the place for you.

Interesting place with a great vibe. Had a long wait for food but was offered a free starter to compensate. Huge portions so couldn't eat it all but was nice enough.
