We stayed at the Hyatt across the street and they were constantly busy from what we saw everyday waiting for valet. So we went, got a table right away. Service was fast, drinks and beer got to table right away, and they took our order promptly. My wife and I had the taco variety platters and my daughter had the ckn tenders. The mahi mahi fish tacos were great and my wife had some pork with blueberry bbq tacos and i can agree they were the best tacos i ever had. With sides and everything it came to less than 50 bucks. And we all had plates full of food and prompt refills on our drinks. We go to Virginia Beach almost every year and I can safely say we can't wait to come back here in july

Maybe it had something to do with this being my first restaurant food in months, but it sure did taste good. We ate inside, as it was 100F outside. They had the tables spaced out, and the staff wore masks. I had their signature burger and it was wonderful. Another in our group said she got the best chicken tacos she had ever had. Good, friendly service--I'd love to go there again.

Pretty dry and boring food for the price overall. Nice options to choose from but not worth the price in my opinion.

During a recent visit to Virginia Beach, my husband and I ate at Cactus Jack’s Southwest Grill. This restaurant reminded me a bit of Applebee’s, with similar menu items (although with a southwestern take). I had the southwest crab & shrimp dip as my meal, and it was absolutely delicious! My husband also enjoyed the CJ’s bowl (shrimp, scallops, rice, corn salsa). Our server was attentive but not annoyingly so. There was live music as well, which was nice. This is a great place for families to dine.
