Cactus Jack’s Tex-Mex Bar and Grill
Cactus Jack’s is probably the most popular restaurant in the South Townsville Palmer Street Precinct. This place is always packed and food good reason. With a great party vibe, this restaurant serves up some classic Tex-Mex food with a choice of tacos, fajitas, steaks, burgers and some tasty fried chicken. The service is excellent at Cactus Jack’s. This place may be full but the staff do an excellent job so you are not waiting long to be served or get your food and drinks. I highly recommend a feed at Cactus Jack’s!
