The service here is friendly, but can be slow when it gets really busy. The food is worth is. Tacos, tamales, shrimp dishes are amazing.

Found this place on Yelp while in town and there was quite the line once I walked in. 10mins later I got to place my order. The menu looked legit and so did the restaurant. Nothing too fancy but legit Mexican taqueria. Literally got my...More

This stalwart of the Mexican food landscape in the Davis area and Sacramento region has maintained affordable and tasty fare for almost 20 years (roughly). I started going there when I was a new dad and now my kids go there with their friends. The...More

If you're looking for affordable authentic Mexican, check TG out. The food is excellent, the price is great and the salsa and chips are homemade and excellent. The ambience is basic but great for a quick meal - or order to take out. Worth checking...More

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.

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...More
