Best Burrito: Taqueria Guadalajara


It’s 8 p.m. You’ve given up on studying for the night, and you’re hungry. You look in the fridge only to realize you haven’t been grocery shopping in a week. Your roommate looks at you and says, “Guads?”

Late night Mexican food is a Davis tradition. Next time you’ve got a hankering, skip downtown and head straight to North Davis to test out Taqueria Guadalajara’s (or, as most of Davis knows it, “Guads”) burritos. They’re located in the Save Mart shopping center conveniently next to the P and Q line Unitrans bus stops.

This is the second year in a row that Taqueria Guadalajara has won best burrito, and the reason is clear: the taste is unbeatable. Along with its location in South Davis on Mace Blvd., Guadalajara’s North Davis location has been open since 1999 and always cooks with the freshest ingredients.

“[Our secret ingredient is] love — we enjoy what we do,” said Rigo Hernandez, Guadalajara owner’s son and manager. “[And] the cooks, they enjoy what they do. We have fun working, and that translates into our food.”

A regular burrito at Guads is $6.49, so head on down, bring your roomie and taste why Guads has been voted the best burrito in Davis two years running.
