About Us


Cactus Taquería is all about freshness, sustainability and the traditional, mouthwatering flavors of Mexico. We make everything from scratch with no artificial ingredients, and all of our meat and poultry comes from partner farms that never ever feed the animals growth hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. Welcome and buen provecho!


Good Food From Good Sources

Locally Crafted Tortillas & Tortilla Chips from Mi Rancho

The taste and texture say it all. Our tortillas and tortilla chips are from Mi Rancho, a family-owned business in San Leandro that’s been making authentic tortillas for four generations. Our tortillas are made with the finest wheat flour available—sourced locally from California whenever possible—or whole-kernel corn ground with handcrafted lava stones; our tortilla chips are made with stone-ground non-GMO yellow corn.

Mary’s Free Range Air Chilled Chicken

From empanadillas to enchiladas, we only use Mary’s Free Range Air Chilled Chicken from the Pitman family farm in California. The birds are pasture raised in the clean air with less stress and plenty of space to roam. The meat is cooled with an air-chilling process, rather than communal water baths, which is safer, conserves water and doesn’t dilute the flavor.

Preferred Meats Hormone & antibiotic-free Angus Beef

We've worked with Richmond, CA-based Preferred Meats since 2009, as they consistently offer high-quality Angus beef from small American ranches.

Responsibly Wild-Caught Shrimp from Gulfish Shrimp

By the way, we are also proud to serve wild-caught Gulfish Shrimp from our friend Jimmy Galle. Jimmy is helping to sustain small American fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico as he provides delicious wild white shrimp that is responsibly caught in domestic waters.

Heritage Pork from Beeler’s Pork

Love our carnitas? We do too, and we also love that the meat comes from Beeler’s Pork. These sixth generation pig farmers in Iowa carefully select heritage breeds (for tastier pork) and ensure that the animals are raised with compassion. The pigs are free to bask in the sunshine or play in bedded areas at their leisure.
