Normally this restaurant is very good, but they blew lunch this time. I ordered the flats from the appetizer menu. I came 40 minutes later and was cooked to hardness that a knife wouldn't cut. Slow service and bad food - not good.

California Street Tacos is imho the best item on their menu. Quality meats, luscious sauces, fresh cilantro and purple onion on velvety corn tortillas. Your choice of steak carne asada, pork carnita or spicy shrimp. 3 to an order: $8.49. Sounds perfect! But... YOU CAN’T...More

I had the flats on the starters menu. Either steak or chicken for a choice. I had chicken. I couldn't finish this dish as there was so much food, including a nice bunch of guacamole . This is a great place to eat in Pensacola.

The Cactus Flower is a handy place for us to meet up with friends and family, and get a good meal at the same time. I avoid the heavier meals; Cactus Flower has a wonderful lunch combo with tortilla soup, a small quesadilla and a...More

So good! Everything on the menu is great! They make their own chips and I really like their guacamole. The burritos are ginormous! Great spot for Tex-Mex!

You can argue about Cal Mex, Fresh Mex...don't care. The food here is consistently great. From the El Jeffe burrito the size of a small armadillo, the grilled pork wrap is one of my favorites and the Sante Fe sauce is great on a piece...More

I think they do take reservations. I recommend that you call and get one if you want to eat there on weekend nights. It’s a popular place.
