The Prickly Cactus

Tex Mex in the heart of Launceston

If a fun night out with family or friends is what you’re after, then The Prickly Cactus is a fantastic venue option - they’re centrally located close to easy parking, and they’ve got everyone covered; from the lovers of spice through to ‘Mexican Cowards’, kids, veggos, celiacs and everyone in between.

On top of their varied and extensive menu, The Prickly Cactus also serves a variety of beers, wines, cocktails and margaritas all from their very own tequila bar. Mocktails and plenty of other non-alcoholic options are also available.

Their casual dining space is equally suitable for small and large parties - just make sure to book ahead!
