Across the train tracks and a short walk from campus is Green Cactus Grill, a restaurant specializing in healthy Mexican food — no MSG, lard or preservatives, and all natural ingredients.
Stony Brook has a Mexican option in the Union where many students complain that the prices for burritos and tacos are unreasonably high. At Green Cactus, many salads, tacos, burritos and appetizers are available for the fraction of the price. Two chicken tacos cost around $4.00 and the restaurant provides complimentary salsas for the chips that come with most orders.
Green Cactus Grill is a cozy restaurant, and many students and administrators from Stony Brook can be seen spending their lunch hour off campus. Green Cactus also provides meal deals and coupons on their Web site.
For many students, Green Cactus is a hidden gem yet to be discovered. However, once you’re a customer of Green Cactus, it’s hard to continue eating campus food.
Green Cactus has restaurants across Long Island including locations in Huntington and Wantagh.
Green Cactus is located at:

Stony Brook, NY 11790-1924
