Green Cactus is a wonderful Mexican joint with fast takeout and predictably good food. And cheap! Don't expect a great guacamole or elegance. Order your burritos or tacos or specialty plates and enjoy! There is a fairly pleasant eat-in restaurant as well. My favorite: Green...More

Take out order: we picked up our order within the specified time period. The burritos were stone cold. A whole bunch of the tortilla chips were stuck together. The server was sullen. More attentive management is needed, and fast.

The food here is great, the burritos are so big you can barely get your hands around it. Rice, beans, guacamole, sautéed jumbo shrimp, sour cream... If you like this type of food- this is the place!

It is a small basic Mexican chain restaurant in a small shipping center that allows for outside(weather permitting) and inside eating. The food is fresh, no table service as you order and pick up from the counter. All the condiments are excellent. Atmosphere is real...More

Green Cactus is a go-to place for a good meal in a "fast food" environment. Nice selection of Mexican-style dishes that are consistently good. The parking lot in Stony Brook used to be its major drawback with potholes, but it was recently redone and now...More
