I have been going here since I was child. By far my favorite restaurant. They are always amazing and on point. They offer call ahead seating and take out. They never get my food wrong, are super cautious with my tricky food allergies, and the...More

We went on a Friday night, and actually were seated immediately which I appreciated. I had never eaten here. It reminds me of Chili’s “Tex-Mex” food. I ordered the fajitas. The steak was cooked perfectly. My margarita was also strong which I appreciated. I didn’t...More

It's more like a sports bar! They have an enclosed terrace in the back! It was very humid so we sat in the back. We weren't even there 5mins, the waitress was very pushy about ordering.... I had the salmon...it was fine, it's Mexican cuisine...More

We love going to CJs, food is always delicious and so are the drinks. The menu is huge and has something for everyone. They have a nice outdoor patio too for nice days. We would highly recommend this place!

Following the success of T-BONES, the first Cactus Jack's opened in 1995 in Manchester. In 2007, the Laconia location became New Hampshire's first dual casual dining concept - with both Cactus Jack's and T-BONES - on Lake Winnipesaukee. While it keeps up the tradition of "homemade" dishes, the look and menu at CJ's has its own style. Attentive servers are always ready to serve guests authentic Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Cajun, and barbecue dishes that are unmatched in New Hampshire
