Treat Your Tastebuds To 9 Different Types Of Tacos At Cactus, A Nebraska Cantina
Mmm, tacos. These magical Mexican morsels can be paired with a huge variety of tasty fillings, running the range from traditional to inventive. There’s a modern Mexican joint in Lincoln that aptly balances the comfortable familiarity of tradition and the excitement of fresh, creative ingredients.
Cactus Modern Mexican & Cantina opened in Lincoln in late 2018. Since then it's gained quite a bit of buzz as diners from Lincoln and beyond discover the fresh flavors here.
The menu contains some unique starters like these mouthwatering crab and cream cheese taquitos...
...but you'll never regret ordering a big bowl of house-made tortilla chips and a variety of salsas for dipping.
As tempting as it may be to fill up on apps, margs, and chips, save some room for your main dish. There are nine unique ways to enjoy tacos here, and you'll want to try them all.
Cactus uses only fresh, local ingredients to craft all of their offerings. Everything you order will be made fresh and presented promptly.
Taco offerings include classics like ground beef or chicken, but there are plenty of options for those with slightly more adventurous palates.
Dig into a Nashville hot chicken taco, an A1 Steakhouse taco, or one filled with carne asada steak and bleu cheese sauce.
Cactus' menu isn't all about the tacos - there are lots of other selections if you're just not feeling the taco vibe, like this massive enchilada. (But seriously, try the tacos anyway.)
There's a menu section devoted to salads for you lighter eaters, and not just the perfunctory side salad, either. These are some creative and outrageously tasty salads that are more than a meal on their own.
Finish off your casual night out with one of the restaurant's indulgent desserts. This sopaipilla sundae looks absolutely decadent.
For a little something different, stop in for Sunday brunch at Cactus between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. They offer a taco bar, nacho bar, dessert bar, and a number of special chef-created menu items. This Dulce De Leche French Toast is more than enough reason to roll out of bed on Sunday.
