Cactus Restaurant Review

: Bright colors and chile-light strings give away the slightly over-the-top Southwestern style that's a hallmark here. Standard Tex-Mex dishes are given surprising twists, such as in the wild mushroom quesadilla with goat cheese and caramelized onions, a butternut squash enchilada with mole rojo, and bacon-wrapped, goat cheese-filled jalapeƱo peppers. Braised brisket tacos and chimichangas are also available. A full bar, craft beers and a wine list with Pacific Northwest varietals offer libations for everyone. For a sweet finish, the Cowgirl brownie is topped with vanilla ice cream, and bananas are caramelized in brown sugar. Other locations.
