For the price the dish was large. It was taste and close to what we have in southern idaho. I had the steak fajita and it was very good. They were very attentive and very nice. I would go back again.

The location and atmosphere are great. The food was meh. Had the Navajo torta and it was bland. The bread didn't seem cooked all the way and the beans were really spicy. No meat and tons of lettuce. Way over priced for bland food.

Cactus Restaurant on Alki is a favorite spot for dinner, drinks or both. The food is very good, the service is pleasant (if they're really busy it can be a bit slow). I really enjoy being there around sunset and the views are great.

Maybe not the most authentic of Mexican, this chain, has a nice decor, good waitstaff and is never disappoints. I like it best in the summer, when we can sit outside.
