Cactus Club is one of my favorite places to go for happy hour or drinks on a weekend night. The bartenders are very nice and the drinks are great. During happy hour, the appetizers are priced really well.

I've tried to eat there twice for lunch with friends, and we waited 10 minutes for someone to greet us. After waiting, we decided to leave and I haven't tried again.

Pros: Great margaritas, good happy hour

Cons: poor dining room service

I am a big fan of Mexican food and have had my fair share of burritos over the years, so you could say I have a pretty discerning palate when it comes to this type of food... and Cactus Club does not disappoint. The first several times my friends and I just went for drinks--Coronas/margaritas--and then when we had other college friends in town, we decided to splurge on a full dinner. The food was delicious, so we came back several times. We even spent one New Year's at Cactus Club! (Instead of champagne at midnight, they have margaritas :) It was super fun. Cactus Club is really a versatile place--great for after-work socializing, great for a fun weekend dinner, and also great for a special occasion! I highly recommend it.

Pros: Good times, good food

I love the Cactus Club. I've had my fair share of happy hour get togethers here, and keep coming back.

First off, just go order the Horni Margarita. It's my drink of choice at Cactus. If you sit in the bar area, grab some half price appetizers Monday-Thursday from 4-7pm. I love the empanadas personally.

The one time I sat in the dining room, the service was awful. Our waitress abandoned us multiple times (while waiting to order, while waiting for the bill, and while waiting for her to come pick up the bill so we could leave), and each time came back and said that she just forgot about us. One time she let us know she had gone out back for a cigarette. Great.

After that, I haven't sat in the dining room again. Instead I opt for the bar area. Grab a high top, a margarita, and enjoy the fast service and good food and drinks!

Pros: selection of margaritas, delicious chips and salsa

Cons: rare to find parking, dining room service can be slow

.

chicken and roasted corn quesadilla were excellent. chips and salsa were suprisingly wonderful. the chips and salsa paired well with my Heinekin beer. Margharita was good but not top tier. I will make it a point to make it back here next time I'm in town.

I thoroughly enjoyed this place when I was visiting Boston a couple weeks ago & sat on the patio for a late lunch. They're quesadilla menu is really extensive & you can make some strange options. I had avocados & black beans. SO good. I've tried already at home to recreate it! I recommend eating here.

Pros: Food, Bar selection, Outdoor seating

This place is overrated. Classic margs are good but the specialties miss the mark. Border cafes chips are much better. The coconut shrimp has no flavor and the servie so so. Unless you have downtown shopping stick to border cafe.

Pros: fast service, "fast food"

Cons: speak up so wait staff hears your requests, salty margaritas

.

Cactus Club is one of my favorita casual bars/restaurants in the area. The service is always friendly, food is great comfort food when you need it, and the infamous margaritas are delish. I hated margaritas untill Cactus Club showed me what an actual margarita IS! They have a great patio on Boylston Street (good for people watching) and the value for your money is very acceptable for Back Bay area.
Promise me if you haven't tried Cactus Club you will? Your missing out if you don't go!

Pros: Best Margaritas Around

Cons: Best Margaritas Around....You drink more than you'd like

I was very surprised on my visit to Cactus Club. The Staff was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable about their tequilas. After a mini-tequila lesson from my bartender I opted to try their "Horni Margarita" and it was delicious! The sour mix was very fresh, a nice refreshment from others I had that taste way to sweet and artificial. The food was hot and comforting. For Boylston street Boston area you will not find prices/value that can compete. I was a first-time Cactus-go-er and will most definitely return again.

Cons: Parking - goes without saying for anywhere in Back Bay

My husband & I visited Cactus Club on a trip into Boston last week. It was actually the last place we had had dinner beofore flying back home and wish we had discovered it sooner! The service was friendly and attentive, the manager was very helpfull, the food was georgeous in both presentation and taste, and I have yet to ahve better margaritas! I would reccomend this place to anyone anytime!

Best damn food & margaritas!
Cactus Club knows how to do it right - from the great drink menu with delicious concoctions to the friendly and good looking staff you always leave here with a smile on your face. They play great music (even on the weekends) that appeals to all generations. They also have a HUGE buffalo over their bar that believe it or not, smoke comes out of his nose!!! You should go if you haven't been here yet. Highly Reccomended.

.

Expect a wait on the weekends especially! BUT Every time I've been there there are always great looking women from the customers to the employees - so chat up a girl while your waiting for your table and enjoy a margarita from their over agerage and unique maregarita menu. The food is above average & when you put it all together along with very reasonable prices for Back Bay...I grage it an A!

long wait (i don't understand. why?!?), ok food, thematic (tex-mex) decors that most restaurants don't care to spend the efforts these days. so i give them that much credit.

did i have a margarita? if i had it wasn't (good or bad) enough to be remembered.

I've been to Cactus Club a bunch of times and have never been disappointed. Their margaritas are the best in Boston by far. The bar is always a fun place to hang out - good looking crowd. The staff is friendly and the service is quick (they keep my margarita glass full). I go after work a lot for half price food in the bar. Keep it up Cactus Club.

I moved to Boston from Arizona last winter and I've been looking for a place with really good Mexican food. Last week some of my friends took me to dinner at the Cactus Club and I loved it! The food was excellent, not bland like a few other places I've tried, and the margaritas were great! I was really impressed with our waitress too; she was very friendly and attentive. I'm glad I found this place!

Pros: MARGARITAS, food & service!

Cons: A little noisy.

I have had after-work drinks at the Cactus Club many times, the door and bar staff are always friendly. I normally just grab a beer or two and leave but I decided to take my out-of-town boyfriend for dinner one night. We were seated promptly outside on the patio. The complimentary chips and salsa are much better than what I have had anywhere else. I had a chicken wrap and he had fajitas... the food is good and more upscale than a normal Mexcian/Southwestern joint. Also our waiter was very nice and engaging, I was very impressed.

I have to say though that I was VERY disappointed with the margarita. I am no 'rita expert, but it was bad. It actually tasted worse than what you would get if you dumped grocery store mix in with tequila. I did order the standard, but I could not taste any tequila, despite the $7 price tag. It tasted like 95% mix. I actually had trouble finishing it, and it just came in a standard glass which took away from the ambiance. Perhaps the more upscale 'ritas are better but there "standard, very good" marg should taste like something, esp. considering they keep getting "Best Margartias in Town" awards.

their nachos are giant. i like that the cheese is layered (not just on top) and melted all the way through. great spot to grab a beer and a pile of nachos.

Oh my God! People have told me about this place since I moved to Boston -- "it's great -- very authentic!"

Authentic WHAT?

Food was disgusting and not hot enough. Margaritas tasted like cough syrup, even though they were made with Top-Shelf spirits. It makes me wonder how anyone could rate this above average as it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had! I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. I will never even THINK of returning.

I've been there a few times for drinks and appetizers in the bar and have never been disappointed. (I think its even half priced food after work.) The margaritas are by far the best around and they have a huge specialty drink list. I love the nachos too.

The food is distinctly mediocre. The salsa tastes like it?s straight out of a can and the Margaritas are made from a mix. The main dishes were flavorless and lacking in fresh ingredients. The service was pretty good.

This place rocks. Great Margs. Great bartenders. However I went in the other day for lunch and they were playing some terrible country music and top 40 s**t that made me wanna leave before my food came. Loose that hillbilly s**t. Stick with the rock n roll you usually have on.

I forgot how much I like this place! I went here recently for drinks and apps and it was SO good! The margaritas are delicious (not wimpy like at some places), the food was great and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Just a fun place to hang out. Kinda makes you forget about the cold winter outside...

After seeing everyone rave about how fabulous the Cactus Club's margaritas are, I went with a group after work to enjoy some half-price appetizers, too. However, I found that the service was slow (took forever to get refills), the margaritas, while good, were no better than I've had at any other Mexican restaurant/bar, and the price of the drinks more than outweighed the savings on the appetizers. I wasn't impressed.

I have been to 3 bachelorette dinners at Cactus Club and have had a great time, every time. I've read a couple negative posts and I just don't get it? The drink selection is great (frozen raspberry margs are my favorite). The food is very good (best quesadillas I've ever had). The staff is excellent (cute bartenders). Cactus Club is the spot for a girls night out.

As if having cold torillas and soggy burritos wasnt bad enough, their so called 'fabulous' margaritas are at the bottom of the list. i've had better ones at cookie cutter (and far less expensive) chains like TGIFriday and Applebees. the service was like a trip back to the elementary school cafeteria (only elementary school had better food...) their servers wore overly dirty uniforms and didnt even smile as you handed them their tip. I thought that since the reviews were so good i'd tried it a second time, and this time it was even worse. on a sunday i waited 20 minutes for another overly salty, bland 10$ margarita, and a whopping 45 for my tacos (of course they were cold). all my friends food was either burnt or cold, their avacado dip was literally BLACK on top from being out so long...really. i dont usually review places but i hold an exception for this hole in the wall dump.

Cactus Club is perfect for any occasion...bring friends, family, significant other, after work....so much fun!! Its so close to everything and you can truly get some great food and some even better Margaritas!!!! Had some of the best birthdays there, and never a dull moment in the bar or restaurant! They've changed the food to make it even better and the Pomegrante Marg is a wonderful addition. Go, its great!

Although I am having a difficult time finding a good Tex-Mex restaurant in Boston, I do know that Cactus Club probably isn't as good as it gets. The food was mediocre. I don't know what else to say. No one in our party of 5 thought it was anything special. The queso was disappointing also which is hard to mess up. I did enjoy the classic margarita. The environment was fun although it was way too loud to have a conversation at a table for 5. As for me, I will continue my search for good Mexican food in Boston.

From the title, you can imagine how disappointed I was in my first and last Cactus Club margarita; they were unimaginative and elementary to say the least, and all the hype has just become annoying. The menu was alright, but again, average and uninspired. The music is terrible, fortunately you can barely hear it, and don't even get me started on the staff, the bartenders and doorstaff especially. I could go for hours, but I simply regret my visit, and want to give everyone a heads up.

The margaritas my friends and I ordered tasted like soap. We thought maybe our glasses were not washed out well and ordered different types of margaritas. Those tastes as soap as well...it must be their mix.

this place gets uncomfortably tight on the weekends, the frozen margaritas are served out of machines--I'm baffled by the #1 vote they got for best margaritas. Sorry, but boston don't know mexican. Stay away from their food, it's really bad (served cold as well), actually, I'd recommend staying away period.

What a great way to unwind after a hard day at work ! This Wednesday promotion they run has two of my favorite things. I brought a group from work and we all had awesome margaritas and the a free massage. Dinner afterward was great. Cactus Club is one of my favorite hangouts in the Back bay.

My group and I stopped by for Happy Hour on a Wednesday afternoon for "Margaritas and Massages". What we thought was a cool idea was actually an opportunity for a 5 minute massage to be a 5 minute sales pitch for Sauza tequila. It was quite annoying really.

Overall though, the drinks were fabulous (my fave was the Mojito Margarita), the food was pretty good, and the servers were very attentive.

Pros: Great Drinks, Decent Food, Happy Hour Specials

Cons: Cheesy Promotions

If you are looking for the best Mnarguritas in Boston, go no further then th Cactus Club located on Boyston St. They have seating outside, inside and at the bar. The people are very friendly and helpful. They will help you make your own margurita from differnt alcohols and flavors. They have a wide variety of margurita floavors to get everyones tastebuds going. No only is their alcoho choices excellent, but there food is great too. They are a very inexspensive resturante, but this is not because the quality or taste of their food is lacking. Everything is excellent at the Cactus Club.

The food is good, the margaritas would probably taste better if they didn't claim to be the best in Boston - they're not the BEST I've had around here, but they're good. The clientele is usually college kids and as a bar scene it's too crowded in the front room: with hardly anywhere to sit it's a pain in the neck to order drinks at the bar and/or get the waitress' attention b/c there are inevitably drunken co-eds in the way ! The bathrooms were also dirty the last time I went, but I can't recall if that's typical.

PROS: food, drinks
CONS: atmosphere

The Cactus Club offers a dazzling array of yummy frozen drinks. The atmosphere is fun, and it's on Boylston St. right near a number of other bars. The food is also very good. I would recommend this place as a great birthday or celebration bar.

PROS: good frozen drinks, fun place
CONS: can get very crowded

I go to the Cactus Club after work several times a week for food and drinks. Their margaritas are unbelievable (my favorite is the Horni Marg) and they even have a "Build Your Own Margarita Night" every Tuesday where you get to create your own margs with the help of the awesome bartenders! The food is great too and the staff is very friendly and. When its warm and sunny, there's nothing better than kicking back out on the patio with a margarita and some nachos!

The Cactus Club is one of the best bars in the Back Bay I have been to in a while. Knowing that it has been around for years, I decided to bring guests visiting town there to show them a good time (It was my first time as well). We all had a blast. The bartenders acted like they have known you for years, friendly with smiles galore. The food was out of this world. We had a few apps because it was Happy Hour and we had to take advantage of thier 1/2 price appetizers, snake bites and flautas are to die for! We heard from a cocktail waitress, whom none of us guys could determine which one of the 2 (3 if you include the bartender) was more beautiful (georgeous!) that they also serve Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays! Psyched. We'll deffintly be back often.

I go to the Cactus Club at Lest once every other week, usually more, to meet my girlfriends and hang out. The staff is unbelieveably friendly and the margaritas are to die for! I have only ate ther a couple of times and found it to be very tasty to my surprise (considering i don't like mexican food very much)! I would reccomend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to drink and eat without all the underage crowd hanging about. It's more for anyone between 23 & 40.

Did this, done that, great place...but not for 30+ crowd. Don't want have all those pretty 30 something old ladies waisting their time on post-undergrad boys when she could be out scamming on something real.
