Experience the warmest welcome from friendly, attentive staff that instantly makes you feel like a regular at The Fat Cactus, Mowbray.

Mexican and American fare in hearty portions is the order of the day. The burgers are a must. Other options include burritos, enchiladas, nachos and quesadillas – all served with beans, salsa and sour cream on the side.
The beverages are an event by themselves, with a great selection of tequila-based drinks and the best frozen margaritas around, available by the glass or jug.

A truly friendly place with staff and regulars making new patrons feel at home and welcomed, the Fat Cactus is the place to be for great food, great people and a superb atmosphere.

Great ambience - Great food, great ambience, great escape. Wonderfully warm, cosy and inviting. A definite must-visit restaurant.

Great location - Great Mexican-style food and fast and friendly service. A really good place to chat and forget about the city outside.
