I love the atmosphere at velvet cactus! It’s so pretty outside at night! The tacos are so good. The vegetarian taco was actually really good and spicy.

Where do I begin?! This place is so cool! I loved everything from the artwork and decorations to the food and drinks. The margaritas are killer! So delicious! The food was just melt in your mouth good. I feel no words do it justice. The sample platter for appetizers was so good. I can’t rememberRead More

Great food and atmosphere. I am a traditionalist when it comes to Mexican food, but this has a great non traditional flavor. El big burrito was huge, and the rocks margarita was wholly refreshing.

Ambled in while in town for the Saints game and were wowed by great food…. With a wheat allergy this can be a challenge and the menu was full of options for me… The chef’s taco was incredible, the house grits divine, and the cucumber margarita was so fresh and lovely…. Thanks for a greatRead More

One of my all time favorites. Atmosphere is amazing. Sit outside on a nice evening and take in the artwork, breeze, and chatter of the people. Drinks are great, food is better.

Then only word I can use for my experience is PHENOMENAL! Best food, service, and atmosphere of anywhere I’ve been in the past ten years. Highly recommend coming here.

My new favorite restaurant!! I can’t believe I just recently stumbled upon this gem. The decor is eclectic and funky while still remaining somewhat classy. The patio area is landscaped nicely and great for milder weather. The salsa has a nice kick and a great flavor. The service was above average, even on a busierRead More
