Loved it. Hi allbriliant experience been there so many times now and its never been bad.The ribs are amazing and ask to eat in the jail for a more unusual experience!!!!!
I Love love LOVE this restaurant it is now one of mine and my boyfriends favorite place to go for food and a good time. For years I heard how good Cactus Jacks was but I never took any notice until i went for a work frinds leaving dinner and I knew my bf would love it. It is a cowboy themed restaurant with ah-mazing food and really good service we always tip generously.
This is my top choice over frankie and Bennies, Relish, Nandos and all other donny restaurants
I'm a native Texan who frequently visits Doncaster to visit my husband's family (he's from Donny). And, if I can give Cactus Jack's 4 out of 5 stars, that's pretty darn good!
We have been here a few times over the years and have always been impressed with the food. Here, in Texas, we're used to a certain type of 'Texas-down-home-cookin' and Cactus Jack's gets as close to it as I'd expect in the UK. The ribs and chicken dishes are very good (better than some of the places here in Houston). The service is good, and that's saying a lot from us overly demanding Americans. The portion sizes are generous by UK standards.
The part I love the best is the interior design. The restaurant isn't just Southwest themed, it's like walking into an old saloon. There is a old school jail cell in the back you can have dinner in. There's tons of gnarly wood everywhere. One time when we were in there, there was a whole troop of older people dressed in Western wear. It was awesome. I did have to correct them once because they had the Texas flag hanging upside down, but I can forgive them on it (people in the USA in other states would get it wrong too). They did fix it and I was satisfied.
The only totally weird thing is the waffle dessert. In the USA, waffles are not dessert items, we eat them for breakfast. They do not taste sugary or have little lumps of sugar inside of them. We don't top them with ice cream and chocolate sauce. But honestly, the waffle dessert at Cactus Jack's is so good, maybe we should!
If you live in the Donny area and haven't been... Go! Try it out! This is a recommendation from a real Texan who has a cactus somewhere in the vicinity (Houston is actually kinda like a jungle).
