Free-range meat and tasty desserts! 6/8/2006

I love, love, love Cactus. I love anyplace where I can cram a healthy and fiilling burrito into my hypoglycemic eight-year-old for maybe three bucks. I love that they use Niman Ranch free-range hormone-free meat, and still only cost around $5 for even the big stuff. I especially love their grilled vegetable burrito (vegetales asados) which is incredibly tasty and super good for me! Plus, little cookies filled with caramel. What more could you want? more

Great for families 5/25/2005

The burritos aren't great, but they are very good. The carnitas doesn't melt in your mouth, the salsas aren't smokey perfection. If you're used to the best of the Mission, this is a pale shadow. 10 years ago (when they had the one location on college across from where they are now) they were all of those things, so I'm possibly a little harsh with them because They Used To Be Great. That having been said, it's an extraordinarily kid friendly place, with a wide menu, cheery seating, reasonable prices, and tasty food. more

I love Cactus. 3/23/2005

From my experience, you really can't go wrong at Cactus; however, the Shrimp Crispy Tacos and the Green Mole anything are particularly strong choices. If you haven't been there, it is definitely worth giving a try. more

Hearty Burritos, Great selections 2/27/2005

Definetly the best burrito place in the East Bay. Fabulous choices of dishes and fillings. more
