Checking out Cactus!

Located in the northeastern corner of Bellevue Square, Cactus is a restaurant that draws from Southwestern, Mexican, and Spanish influence. Cactus planted its roots at Madison Park back in 1990 but didn’t find its way to Bellevue Square until 2013.

Now, Cactus is at five different locations across Seattle. Tonight we braved the
15231627_10157889318595650_250504823_oThanksgiving weekend crowds at Bellevue Square so that we could make it to 4 o’clock Happy Hour at Cactus. It was totally worth it. Not only were the food and drinks delicious, but the service was outstanding.

Daily happy hours at Cactus run Monday through Friday (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.) as well as over the weekend (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Cactus offers a variety of happy hour items to choose from, and the servers at Cactus are very knowledgeable.

Cactus has become one of our favorite happy hour spots–who can beat their reasonably priced cocktails and festive atmosphere?

 Parking

There is free parking in the garage but it’s always super busy during the holiday season! You might have to circle around to find a good spot!

CAMI’S CORNER:
Parking

Parking really depends on the time of day and year. Even though there was ample parking tonight, other times it can get pretty crowded.

Atmosphere

I love all of the cactus decor! There was a great crowd which made for an energetic–though not overwhelming–atmosphere.

Food

We got the guacamole with veggies and chips (unfortunately, not gluten-free). I had ahi tacos with soft corn tortillas.

Drinks

I ventured out of my comfort zone and got the ginger carrot margarita. It tasted exactly as it sounds–yummy at first but got old quick.

Pricing

Pricing was amazing. They comp’d all of our food because it took a long time. We didn’t even complain!

Service
