Whenever we visit my son at Davis, we stop here for lunch. We have had all sorts of tacos and burritos, as well as their chimichanga. In our last visit, the staff recommended the beef cheek tacos, which were rich, unctuous and beefy. My sense is that one cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The restaurant is located... More

What do you have when you combine korean short ribs, nachos, and french fries? You have Taqueria Davis's not on the menu Taekwondo Fries and they are magnificent. So many great flavors blended together, will certainly have you humming while you chew your food. The al pastor street tacos are also very good. Maybe the best part of the visit... More

The food was good and authentic. Service was very friendly. I had the carne asada plate and it was good but I wasn't expecting finely chopped meat. Flavors were all good. Seems to be a place where college kids go... hence, good value.

The food is great and pretty authentic (I'm Mexican how has family in Mexico so I can say that). The service is average. Pretty popular with college kids but they are on the pricey side from my experience. And the restaurant could upgrade their seating.

This place is always crowded, and there's a good reason; the food is superb. As the name suggests, tacos are a specialty. Our favorites are carnitas, either in a soft tortilla or crispy, with the addition of a little sour cream and salad. Delightful. Have two, I promise you'll want more than one. When our son comes from a visit... More

Now our favorite for take-out. Carnitas are a family recipe and particularly good! Owners are particularly nice and friendly.

You can't ask for better mexican food. It's a family run business and they truly care about the food they make. All of the meats are outstanding (especially the pork products -pastor, carnitas etc), and the prices are very reasonable for the portion size. Cannot recommend them highly enough!
