Great place for my group of friends to have a Taco Tuesday night with some excellent drinks. Everyone was happy with their food and their drinks, and the theming is so cool. Would come back again!
Frozen sangria was SO good. The food was great too, their menu is extensive and includes vegetarian/GF options, as well as a build your own taco option. The cocktails are strong and pretty cheap compared to what I’m used to paying in New York or Jersey City. WORTH IT. Our server was really sweet too, wish she had checked on us more, but it was Mother’s Day so I’m sure she was just really busy. Will be back :)
Guacamole and tacos were excellent. High variety of tacos that can be customized.
Frozen sangria was delicious
Good guacamole and margaritas. Their restrictions on seating till entire party is present is understandable but also prevents one from enjoying their drinks beforehand. Post Covid I see this happening. the rush will die down and you can come abs enjoy their great drinks without having a 1.5 hour limit on seating. Portions are medium with the guacamole serving very plentiful. I would come back!
Very well organized for such a busy holiday
Cinco de Mayo was my first time at Fat Cactus and it was exceptional! Our waiter Tomas was incredible and the food was absolutely delicious! Can't WAIT to go back!
Restaurant looks great. The build your own taco menu is amazing.
Our waiter wasn't great with attending to us. We would have gotten more alcohol drinks if he had come.by during the entree time.
Food was not good from empan/ burrito and alcohol drinks not good
Food was really tasty and seasoned well. Service was quick and friendly.
The food at Fat Cactus is amazing. We’ve been here a few times now and really enjoyed ourselves. The chimichurri steak is excellent and so are all of their salsas. The restaurant has a really fun vibe and they play great music. Definitely would recommend.
The food was amazing, the service was wonderful staff was very friendly and sweet. It was my first time there so our waiter was very helpful with food decisions and drink decisions. Definitely will be coming back and telling others about my wonderful experience.
My boyfriend and i loved it
Unexpected great spot, good food and drinks
Service was very slow. Server walked by us for 20 min after having drinks delivered until we ordered. App came out less than 5 min before food. App took a long time to come out. Timing from order to food would’ve been good if app came out in between.
There is no COVID protocols being followed here, a group of 4 people were seated less than 3 feet away from me and my husband. I went to the host stand and told them this was not safe and they should not be seating anyone so close together, they moved our table and apologized but shortly after they sat someone else there. Unbelievable! This is horrible especially during these times, we are supposed to feel safe and try and get back to some normal life, not continue to put people at risk.
Very accommodating; delicious food; excellent staff!
It's a very loud place so it will be hard to have a conversation. Food was very good with nice portions
Love this place! It’s definitely the new hot spot on Rutgers campus. Food is excellent! Love the ambiance.
The service received by our waitress was very poor. We placed our drink and appetizer order first and asked she come back as my sister was undecided. Our appetizers and drinks came we finished our appetizers and our waitress had and still come back to take our entrée order we had to flag her down I think that a waiter should come back promptly and check on you or she should’ve came back when she saw that the appetizers has been served the fact that so much time had passed to me was really unacceptable
Awesome time , great music , food , setting
Excellent food and service, even the cactus was great with the fajitas. Margaritas are really good
i loved this restaurant! good food for a good price. the virgin mojitos are so good! i would recommend.
Way to loud for lunch. It’s not a club.
Amazing! Will definitely frequent often. Lots of options for vegetarians and vegans. Drinks were delicious!
Outdoors doesn't open until 3pm even though we requested outdoors for lunch and it came back as outdoors.
Long wait for service
Great food and service!
I’ve never had bland salsa! Wow! Everything lacked flavor. Even the beans and rice. I had the oxtail tacos. They were below average. Not the fresh “taco” taste. This place has potential as it’s in a good location, looks inviting inside with a fully stocked bar but they need a new cook. The frozen sangria was good but that’s about it. Can’t even recommend for drinks and snacks because the salsa was not even good! Pity....
Good reception on check in. Prompt service on food order since we were in a hurry
This is one of my top favorite mexican restaurants! The atmosphere is so different and colorful. It’s chill but lively at the same time. The food every time has been delicious. And the drinks.. so good!
Friday was our first time at Fat Cactus, and surely won’t be our last. Delicious food and great atmosphere. Highly recommend the nachos to start as well as the guacamole to go with your chips. Frozen Sangria was a nice treat as well.
Food was delicious, ambience and vibe were 👌🏽
Food was good, waitress super nice and attentive, prices pretty decent. Would definitely go again.
Service was good and were sat at our seats rather quickly. Even though I did not enjoy what I ordered but boyfriend enjoyed his
Great food ! Great vibes ! Would go back and my drink was good too !
The first waitress who took care of us denied us a request we made but the second waitress was very friendly and helped us. It took a long time to get us some tacos, but the food was fine.
Food is good here. Great options. I’ve been here a few times and usually order the tacos. I tried the rice and beans once and didnt care for that. I usually enjoy what I order though.
Great place. Would recommend. Amazing cocktails and build your own tacos
Food was excellent
