Cactus Taqueria  1881 Solano Ave./The Alameda. Mexican fast food at its best is served cafeteria-style in this popular taqueria.  Burritos are custom made, with a choice of several kinds of flavored tortillas, black or pinto beans, and a variety of well-seasoned fillings.  Tacos and tamales are also available.  Tortillas are lard-free, meats are the best, and tortilla chips are fried in safflower oil.  Housemade drinks include several fresh fruit agua frescas and horchata (a sweet rice drink), and several addictive salsas are available.  Seating is at colorfully-stained wooden tables, and an indoor water fountain provides restive background sound. Weekend brunch brings on an egg-chorizo breakfast burrito and chilaquiles with red or green sauce.  Mexican hot chocolate is always available. 
          Also in Oakland at 5642 College Ave.
