We have been going to this restaurant fairly regularly for the past 10 years. After an interval of bout a year, we decided to have lunch there on Friday 3 Jan. They used to have a great burger, "Fetapeno" on their menu, and I was surprised to see that this has been substituted by a new Texan burger with onions, Cheddar cheese and Chipotles. I ordered this, and when it arrived, I found the plate half covered in french fries, a table spoon of a coleslaw, and a large patty with the burger. There was a small trace of Cheddar cheese, lots of onions, and a few Chipotles. The "beef Patty" was dry and tasteless, but the onions and the Chipotles made up for that. My wife ordered Fajeetas, and when these arrived, she was informed by the waitress that the Fajeetas has been reduced to three small ones, and that she could order more, if needed. My wife decided that the meal required two more Fajeetas, which were supplied. Imagine our surprise when we were charged an additional sum for the two Fajeetas. For the price of the food, which has gone up by about 30% , and the quality reduced by the same amount since our previous visit, we will not be going back

Great atmosphere, very efficient waitress, crumbed chicken wing starter was very good with a delicious BBQ dip, my wife's quesedilla she said was delicious. I chose an Obama burger with extra bacon, a massive big roll, with burger patty half the diameter of the roll. The patty was dry, overcooked and tasteless. I had to order mayo (niracle whip)to be able to swallow the patty. Ordered a dessert to share with sweets, ice cream & nuts. The nuts were stale and old, the waitress got us another one with roasted almonds and it was delicious. I will go back, but I hope they do something about the patties.The Boks winning was the cherry on the top.

We seldom go to a restaurant twice but Fat Cactus will definitely see us again! Friendly car guard, greeted and seated and served promptly. Food was great, two minor complaints dealt with efficiently.Waitress never referred to us once as "You guys" (Sorry, it's my pet peeve.)And we won the rugby.
