Celebrate #NationalTacoDay every day! Taco Tuesday (and any other day of the week) is a perfect time for Mexican food for families. With so many choices, my picky family can usually find something tasty. The smallest of new eaters can usually manage some mashed up avocado or soft black beans. My children will usually go for quesadillas.

Here is a quick list of taco joints and more Mexican places we love for families in the (510)

  1. Cactus (N. Berkeley + Rockridge) | Cactus is my go-to. Those tiny burritos and the great prices bring me back over and over again. It is the place I turn to when I don’t want to cook. – Whitney  {see also Picante smackdown} Website.
  2. Cancun (Berkeley) | Committed to fresh ingredients, lots of salsa choices. Website.
  3. Casa Latina (W. Berkeley) | Taqueria and a panaderia in one. Can’t go wrong here.
  4. Cholita Linda (N. Oakland) | Farmers’ Market stand turned brick-and-mortar. Website.
  5. Cosecha (Oakland) Located in Swan’s Marketplace – so if your kid doesn’t love quesadillas, get them a pizza at the counter nextdoor. Website.
  6. Juan’s Place (W. Berkeley) | My son had a beef taco and he LITERALLY attempted to lick the plate clean until I told him it wasn’t polite. – Lisa
  7. La Penza Azul (Alameda) | My daughters love the chips. – Rebecca. And they offer online ordering. Website.
  8. Picante (Berkeley) | {see also Cactus smackdown} I am a big fan of the online ordering and easy pickup – Heather Website.
  9. Rubio’s (Emeryville + El Cerrito) | Fresh and fast Mexican; known for fish tacos; kids activities on the placemat. Website.
  10. Tacubaya (Berkeley) | 4th street taqueria is a delicious respite from shopping and errands. Outdoor seating lets sound escape and don’t forget the trainspotting. – Heather Website.
  11. Taqueria Talavera (Berkeley) | We come here for the adjacent totlot. Plus, one burrito can practically feed your entire family. – Anna
