We take our grandkids here every time we visit Davis. Never disappoints, something for everyone and always good food. Yes, it can be noisy but it's a great place to take the family.

I always get the Adobe steak salad. It is very large and can easily feed 2 people. The shrimp burrito has been consistently good. They have a fancy fountain drink set up that the kids love. When the Woodland Costco has gift cards it's a great deal. $40 for a $50 card. I load up when they have them because... More

Sure, the atmosphere is a little lacking, the menu has been the same for decades, and the portions have been getting smaller. All that aside, the quality remains excellent. The menu, while it doesn't vary, is large enough that there is plenty to try. While the Border Burrito and the Southwest Burrito are the classic go-tos, the Mahi Mahi Burrito... More

We went for lunch with our soccer team of 18+ kids and their parents for lunch. Good for a group as you pay on ordering and food is served to you. Varied Mexican food menu and very tasty. We ate at the restaurant in a modern type strip mall in Davis. Would have much preferred a little more atmosphere. Prices... More

A favorite restaurant by locals and students, fresh Mexican entrees a la California please all customers. Two restaurants in Davis serve outstanding salads, enchiladas and burritos. Outdoor seating is available.

I've had a variety of items on the menu. Steak nachos are a huge portion and excellent. The steak Ceasars salad is huge and also good. Even the quest Dillard special is always fresh and usually stuff withe the seasons vegetable. Good quality fresh food with a nice salsa bar selection.

great place for margaritas and fresh Mexican, grilled right in front of you. the catering menu is a lesser known secret to making your parties great. I order from them 1-2 per year, especially the skewers with chimchurri sauce. You can have that as an add-on for almost any cuisine.

Staff were friendly and patient with our large and diverse group. The Salsa’s are excellent, I really liked the sweet lime one. Very casual and fun.

The food is pretty good. A little pricey. Not authentic. The salsa bar has a good selection of choices.

Great place for Mexican food with a twist. The specials are innovative and often quite good. A nice atmosphere but a bit loud, except on patio. Great service with a friendly staff.
