Go here for drinks. Food was not good - tasted like microwave food. We had appetizers only. I would come back for drinks only. Good music.

We went after a baseball game. It had a great vibe, great music and delicious margaritas. We tried the originals, jalapeno and cucumber ones and we loved all of them. We didn't eat, but the food we saw looked good....I'd go again!!

We first tried the Cactus Club a few years ago when we were visiting Boston. We noticed it was busy and felt like Mexican so we dropped in. We loved it and returned again a week ago when in Boston for a Sox game. There were six of us including two children. We tried the guacamole as an appetizer along with their signature margarita and mojito. Very tasty. For the main course most of us had the enchiladas which were terrific. Food is always good and service is outstanding. The atmosphere is fun and energetic but not over the top. I've never had a chance to personally experience the bar area but it's darker and more like a pub. Prices are reasonable and portion sizes are more than sufficient. Never disappointed and recommend to anyone looking for a good Mexican feast.

Went with a big group of 19 girls for dinner during a bachelorette party. They had a table ready for us, two servers who handled our loud group very well and efficiently. Food wasn’t bad, drinks were okay, atmosphere was just okay. During our time there, an obnoxious guy at the next table was extremely rude and started a fight with our table. (He was very drunk.) The manager promptly removed him and apologized to us. It was handled perfectly. It is a good place to go to grab a beer and Mexican with some friends.

Had a good atmosphere and service was helpful and friendly. We didn't eat just had drinks. It seemed clean.
