It's been awhile since I ate there, though it was very good. This visit with had awesome outdoor Fall seating and very nice margaritas that will kick your booty. Quick, friendly service. Perfect sized drink and some chips and salsa!

My wife and I had not eaten at Prickly Pear for 5 years. We had enjoyed it in the past. We were seated near the rear the kitchen . The over powering smell was like a dumpster in mid July. After ordering I noticed a group of flys playing tag on the ceiling just outside the kitchen. My pulled pork... More

Amazing Mexican food. When it's warm the back patio is an awesome atmosphere. If you like quesadillas the scallop quesadilla is a must

Had a reservation after the game for 12. Surprisingly the service was very good considering it was very busy after thein win against Wisconsin. Margaritas were very good. Everyone liked there meals. Chips and salsa were very tasty. Reasonably priced.

Having written a less than stellar review some months ago, I feel it is only fair to update our experience from last night. There was a marked change from our previous visit, and all good. We had a reservation for 6 pm and noted we wanted a booth-no problem got a quiet booth. Waiter was attentive and when asked about... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and were extremely disappointed. Everything was so expensive. EVERYTHING.... We were seated outside during a not too busy afternoon. We ordered water to drink because ten bucks for a lunch marguerita was just CRAZY! It took FOREVER to get our water refilled. Our measley lunch was brought to us after a small... More

Have lived in AA for many years and never have been to this restaurant and we were looking for a casual place after a round of golf. Our food selections were a scallop salad, burrito, Brussel spouts and black bean chili. All of us liked their food. Instead of giving us bread to start with, they provided salsa and chips.... More

As we were walking Main Street, we passed the Prickly Pear. A patron said that the scallop and shrimp quesadilla was "to die for." With that recommendation, we went in. The quesadilla was good and ample. Two of us shared the dish and the Jicama Slaw (nice and crunchy). Another dining companion enjoyed her Skillet Fajitas and shared them with... More

I stopped in with my wife this past Friday night. It was very busy along Main St, but we were seated right away. I tried to order soup, but I was told that they don't make it anymore and that it will be removed from the menu the next time that they are printed. I then ordered pork tacos only... More
