Like Pringles, once you pop, you just can't stop... eating the chips and salsa at Cactus Cantina. This Glover Park favorite is the best place for Mexican Food in a fun, laid-back environment. The space is large enough so that there is rarely a wait to be seated, even when you're with large groups. There is a lengthy list of tequilas, a variety of margarita options, and of course all of your favorite Mexican beers on top. Aside from the drink menu, the main menu has every Mexican dish you can think of and each one tastes better than the next. This is a great spot to meet for drinks and a quick bite after work during the week.

Pros: Vast Tequila Menu, Great Margaritas, Outdoor Patio

Cons: Service can be slow at times

I have been going here for 5 years. Yes, it will be crowded at times...but hey the place is great so that is to be expected. We have tried many dishes on the menu with great success. Service is usually good but I have taken a larger group there before and service suffered. We will keep coming back.

We used to eat here once a week at least, before moving out of the area. The restaurant is often crowded with sometimes a wait of over an hour but there is a reason for that - the food is amazing. This is true for everything on the menu. They make the flour tortillas fresh, right in front of you. The chips are even warm. The margueritas are also very good. The service and prices are very good. Parking is something of a challenge but make the effort. It is soooo worth it.

Cactus Cantina is a very good restaurant. The queso is delicious as are the entrees. The margaritas are also very good and the atmosphere is fun. This is a great place to go for a happy hour and stay for dinner!

Cactus Cantina offers some very good food. The decor of the restaurant is your traditional Tex-Mex, and the smell when you enter is strong and gorgeous. The food is very good, they make especially good fajitas, though to some the flour tortillas can be a bit thick. The staff are generally pretty nice but can be a bit impolite and also Cactus is a bit pricey when compared to similar restaurants in the area. The food is great though, and worth for an occasional meal.

PROS: Great Food, smells
CONS: sometimes rude staff, a bit pricey

I have been to Cactus Cantina many times and have found the food to be on the whole very good. Though occationally a dish won't be great, most of the time it is of a high standard. The service is pretty good, though the wait staff can be a

For a large group Margarita and Mexican outing you really can't beat Cactus Cantina. Okay, for atmosphere, it's sister restaurant, Lauriol Plaza just north of Dupont, JUST might have it beat, but let's face it, the wait times are

This Washington landmark near the National Cathedral serves tourists and presidents alike, keeping tradition alive since 1968. The food is so authentic, even notoriously reclusive ?Dubya? ventured in for a taste of home. The culinary…
