Clean, friendly, efficient, and delicious freshly prepared food. They do catering also. Lots of native Mexicans also chose here so that tells you the food is authentic.

Our son and his friends grew up on the super giant burrito. My husband and I can always find exactly what each of us feels like here. I like the tostadas Al pastor or ceviche, he likes the huevos con chorizo. Sometimes we will share a torta, warm and freshly grilled, delicious on a cold day. The takeout is fast... More

Huge portions of authentic, delicious food (the usual entrees) go with a great salsa bar and unlimited chips to make this a local favorite.

The Taqueria Guadalajara is the standard for Mexican cuisine in Davis California. I have eaten most of the menu items and have yet to find anything to complain about. The servings are ample, the taste is great and the personnel are friendly and accommodating. Each day there is a dinner special so good that you will go every day of... More

Comparing this to SoCal fast Mexican food this cannot stand up ... it is popular because there is not much competition ... I would skip this place if I was in Davis and try more of the local/UCD favorites in Downtown Davis.

Good quality, flavorful food at a very reasonable price. The salsa bar is a nice bonus. Feels a lot like being in Mexico. The family (I assume it's family run) that operates Taqueria Guadalajar seems to take real pride in their business. The service is polite and friendly. Overall, far better than you might expect for a quick serve Mexican... More

I've eaten here several times while working in Davis. It's quick and good. I tend to overdo it on the chips and salsa though!

This is a great taqueria with really authentic choices. Lots so choices! Great Barbacoa and lots of fish choices complemented by a wonderful clean salsa bar? Always busy and always fresh. Something for everyone.

Really great food. Order at the counter, get a number and they bring it to you. Got in right at 5PM and there was only one person in front of us. Had tacos, tostadas, fajitas, rice beans and all. With drinks it was still well under $25. Really great salsa bar to add lots of neat flavors to the chips... More

We have been regulars for years of these family-ran restaurants. We prefer the south Davis location with the nice outdoor patio seating. The burritos are the best in town: generous sizes and made-to-order (ie: ask for sliced avocados), wet or dry, etc.. Chili Verde is wonderful as is their flavorful chicken. The super giant burritos is of true value to... More
