  1. The only place I can think of is Taqueria Can Cun on Alston off Shattuck. It's good to very good but not outstanding. Lots of salsa choices. Burritos about $5 bucks.

    1. Ditto. It a good option this time of year since schools are out. It can be nuts at lunch time between Cal and Berkeley High students.

      1. La Cascada is on Center between Oxford and Shattuck. I really like the chile rellano burrito and they have the best salsas. They also have a location on College Ave and Ashby in Elmwood.
