    The ingredients are good and fresh, the salsa bar is comprehensive and ranges from mild mango, to verde, to almost spicy.

    Pro tips: 1) order by phone to avoid the often long lines of seemingly bewildered customers.

    2) This place is _very_ family friendly, really too much so for my taste, so I take my food to go, which is facilitated by...

    3) ...very convenient access to rockridge bart station. if bart is not convenient for you, the station still provides a good place to park your car, as parking on piedmont can be a little congested.

    Over all the food is good, if a touch... mild. Bring your own hot sauce if you like it very spicy.

    This Cactus Taqueria is every bit as good as its Berkeley Brother (or should I say Solano Sister?). Their chicken quesadilla (with salsa) is how I like it, and it's even better with fresh chips and a good draft beer to wash it down. I also think that queue control, speed, parking, and interior room is better here too. The only problem is that when I'm in the neighbourhood, Ben & Nicks is nearby and I love their beer selection more. As for the kiddy factor? No problemo.
