Green Cactus Grill, Gaithersburg MD

I didn't have the slightest idea on what Green Cactus restaurant is about.  But since it opened up near me, I wanted to give it a try.  It was actually a pleasant surprise!

As we walked in the door, the mystery unraveled.  Green Cactus is a fast food style Mexican restaurant.  The inside is brightly decorated and very clean.

We ordered 1 steak burrito and 3 tacos.  The steak burrito was about 1/4 smaller than chipotle but it definitely packed more meat.  There were no fillers like beans & rice inside the burrito, only some roasted peppers, onions, and lots of yummy steak!  The burrito was around $8, which is a steal since you're getting a real steak fajita platter wrapped up in fresh tortilla shell.

I ordered one fish taco, one asada taco, and one shrimp taco.  I loved them all!  These little guys were about $2.75 each but they packed great flavors and ingredients.

We both concluded the steak burrito is our favorite in the area for the price.  If you're in the area and want some Mexican food, give it a try!  Don't forget to try the different salsa from their self help salad bar as well!
