Well the interior of this joint is one-of-a-kind. Love what you’ve done with the place folks, felt like I was in a legitimate saloon.
My colleague and I were seated in a nice big booth and we jumped straight into a few passionfruit mocktails (*was doing Dry July at the time), needless to say these were delicious and I polished off mine before the entrees hit the woodwork!
The jalapeño poppers we received were a bit unusual, I’m used to a more bread crumb type texture, these felt like glorified spring rolls, however they packed all that flavour and spice you expect. We ordered a chicken nachos with the chicken on the side however a clerical error from the waitress saw the nachos arrive at the table with the chicken embedded in the nachos mountain we were presented with. The portion was huge and my colleague was able to pick around the meat, so there was no real issue. She also ordered the enchiladas which she really enjoyed. Big plates of hearty Mexican food in a buzzing atmosphere amongst an eclectic mix of American memorabilia.

We are spoilt in Townsville with Cactus Jacks in 3 different locations. We dined at the Palmer St restaurant on a Saturday night. It’s very busy but is well worth it. The food is always consistently good, the cocktails are amazing (and well-priced during happy hour), the staff are attentive and helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed.

We sat in a booth which gave us our own little space to chat and we received our meals quite quickly and enjoyed table service of drinks. As we were a group of friends, it was good to be able to split our bill at the end of the meal.

I had dinner here a couple of times with family and friends. The coktails are delicious and the food is even better.
A must have: chocolate nachos. We ate one portion in three and they were amazing.

Lovely ambience when you walk in here - it always appears busy and people everywhere but the service was never lacking - very attentive staff, meals well presented and on time, Sangria always good - would recommend as a great place for families and well priced for everyone also.
