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

Very tasty food & healthy portions. Located in shopping center near Save More (looks like Safeway) grocery store - so lots of parking. We came early (~11:30 am) which was a good idea because the line was ~10 deep when we left. Carnitas Fries (aka Carnitas Nachos) is the Mexican version of Canada's Poutine. French fries, with carnitas, w/cheese. Enough... More

Taqueria Guadalajara has two locations in Davis - we love them both. The South Davis location has a nicer look and a really nice outdoor dining patio, but both have fantastic food. The burritos are huge, chips and salsa are all you can eat (serve yourself) and the salsa choices are good. The salads are very large and delicious too.... More
