Cheap and cheerful Mexican in Loughborough town centre. Although the interior is fairly basic, the food alone is worth a visit. Menu includes all the usual Mexican suspects - nachos (the best I've had anywhere), fajitas, burrito etc etc. Cactus Café is reliable - the food is consistently fabulous and I've never had a bad meal here. Mexican beers and cocktails also add to the appeal! Staff are friendly and helpful.
It's worth booking, particularly on Mondays and Tuesdays which are cheap nights (two courses for about £8) and ask about their discount card which entitles you to two courses for a fiver on Mondays AND raises money for a cancer charity.
This place has a nice vibe and the staff are really friendly but they essentially throw the same guacamole/salsa/sour cream combination on everything they serve. I ordered the nachos for starter and a fajita for main and they tasted very similar because of the amount of this stuff that had been put on them. The food is of a pretty OK standard otherwise.
Cactus cafe is a mexican restaurant and i think it is the only mexican restaurant in Loughborough.
Cactus Cafe is a fairly well sized restaurant which is always jam packed with people.
Trust me if you want to eat here you must book in advance.
If you go Cactus Cafe you always start with the Nachos which is enough for 3-4 people. Its delicious.
From there the main courses generally all taste similar, so if you dont like one, more than likely you wont like anything. Although obviously the vegatable chilli which is very nice tastes different from the chicken buritos.
Overall i think the food is very nice.
They also have some standard deserts but they are nothing special.
Cactus Cafe has great food but it is just really busy and usually very noisy so if you wna talk get ready to shout.
The only Mexican in Loughborough serves really fantastic food. Probably my first choice in Loughborough for going out for a good meal. The service is friendly, the food served fast all in a lively environment.
