A Little About The Velvet Cactus

Velvet Cactus New Orleans: Fajitas

We love eating and drinking with friends & family. That's why we created The Velvet Cactus, where you and your friends can enjoy Mexican inspired dishes while sipping a margarita made with fresh lime & cane sugar. Our large outdoor patio will make you feel like you're on vacation even if it is for a few hours.

These are just a few of our recent recognitions!
