Now here's a restaurant bound to pique your interest. The Cactus Republic is the newest burrito and tequila bar on Brisbane's trendy block.

Whether you're going for a chilled supper, or if it's merely the warm-up for an unforgettable night out, Cactus Republic has fun in bucketfuls. A treat for all the senses, it's a festival of colour with playful sombreros and graffiti to match. 'In tequila, we trust' (you'll understand when you get there).

Leave your exquisite table manners at home and get stuck in! For a dish with some crunch, opt for a taco filled with anything from fajita steak strips, chipotle pork, and BBQ pumpkin. Their moreish nachos come topped with your choice of grilled chicken, South American chilli and bean dip. And that's not all; their quesadillas and burritos might be messy but boy do they hit the spot!

Soak in the party atmosphere with a cocktail! This eatery makes tequila mixers like a boss, but if that isn't your jam, there are other dazzling options like the emerald city, blueberry martini or electric blue iced tea. Feel free to compare tongues at your leisure.

Had a great time at this small Mexican restaurant. Good food and good drinks all for a responsible price and so central.

We honestly loved our dinner out, the food was incredible and the service was even better. The young gentlemen on was so helpful and happy which made it a great atmosphere! He should get a raise cause he knew everything we asked him without hesitation and constantly had a smile

Food was good and so was the service. Plus the margaritas are always delicious! Had the large nachos and veggie burger and we ate everything very quickly. Food came out fairly quick as well which is always nice. All in all a good night!

The servers really went above and beyond to make us comfortable, check in, and knew a lot about their menu and drinks. Had a lovely time, wonderful vibe.

We went to Cactus Republic for a pre-movie dinner. It was very quiet and a little wet out, but it's a great spot and the staff are really friendly. We shared 1/2 kilo garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings and my Fiancee also had a Pork Burrito and a beer. The wings were very moreish and I can imagine it would be a great place for a group to enjoy a few beers with the wings on a Friday night.

Ordinary food and service. No flavour present, some menu items not in stock. Wrong food delivered to table.

We were disappointed with our evening at Cactus Republic.
Our starter (the sharing platter) was actually quite tasty despite and we enjoyed this. However, we weren't provided plates, knives or forks which the waitress seemed surprised when I asked for some. I asked for some hot sauce which is generally a basic standard at a Mexican but she brought over 2 empty Tabasco sauces and said there wasn't any more in the back.
Our mains were totally lacking in any flavour. The burrito was the worst my partner has ever had... totally dry, loads of lettuce and no flavour and my chorizo and prawn quesadilla was just dry and flavourless. One of the triangles of my main had no filling in whatsoever.
If we had paid full price for this, I would have complained but I don't feel the staff would have done anything anyway.
