I can't say enough about the great service my friend and I experienced. The host and the server were attentive, cheerful, and gave great suggestions. The queso and chips were excellent. I had the chicken naan sandwhich with the potato trio. Both were very tasty.

Different food combinations, good service, a little pricey. I do not recommend the gumbo, very lackluster in taste and quantity for a bowl.

I have heard so many great things about this place, but I was severely disappointed. We went for a late lunch so they weren't busy at all. I ordered a chicken chimichanga which came with beans and rice. I'm pretty sure they make their chicken ahead of time and just use it for different things. There was no flavor to... More

I visit Murfreesboro several times a year. During my visits we seldom eat our but one of our must hit restaurants is Blue Cactus. We enjoy the variety of the menu and the laid back atmosphere. The service is always great and we leave very satisfied....

We live in Atlanta and stop in to 1 of their 2 locations (both are fantastic) whenever we come through town. The food is so good and so different in a really good way. The service is OUTSTANDING as well!

The boudin burger was one of the best that I have ever eaten. My wife got a stuffed chickenn that was more like a "deconstructed" stuffed chicken but was very good. Not too bad for a Saturday evening. We'll be back.

I visited recently with my brother and teenage daughter for the first time. Restaurant was very neat and clean and the staff was very nice and friendly! I enjoyed the bang bang chicken, it was really tasty! Our food came out fairly quickly. I will return in the future! Thank you for taking such great care of us Kaylee 👍🏾

Our family tried several dishes at Blue Cactus and they were all big hits or big misses. We started with the salsa, which was a big miss (not enough salt and no heat.) The ultimate cheeseburger was a big hit; I'm a total burger snob and I was very impressed with the quality of the meat and the toppings, as... More
