“Guad’s is the perfect college cuisine because it’s extremely affordable, packed with flavor and it has very fast service.”
Taqueria Guadalajara, better known as Guad’s to Davis locals, is this year’s winner for Best Tacos in Davis, offering delicious and affordable Mexican cuisine that draws UC Davis students and local residents alike. The taqueria — which has locations in North Davis, South Davis and Woodland — serves an array of Mexican dishes including burritos, tostadas and quesadillas. Its award-winning tacos are plated with a generous serving of meat, fresh cilantro and onions. They start at just under $2 a piece.
No matter the order, Guad’s regularly brings together groups of Davis students to connect over a quick take-out dinner or a dine-in meal. Jeremy Inducil, a second-year mechanical engineering major at UC Davis whose go-to order is a super burrito with carnitas, said he loves Guad’s for the way it fosters community.
“It epitomizes the Davis environment,” Inducil said. “A bunch of young college students having fun — eating delicious, affordable food.”
Ayush Garg, a second-year computer science and cognitive science double major at UC Davis, has a go-to order: a veggie burrito. Garg echoed the sentiment that Guad’s is a great option for Mexican food for UC Davis students.
“Guad’s is the perfect college cuisine because it’s extremely affordable, packed with flavor and it has very fast service,” Garg said. “Also, it has one of the best salsa bars I’ve seen at a taqueria.”
He added that it provides a sense of comfort during the school year.
“There’s something about being in college that makes [Guad’s] feel very homely,” Garg said.
Guad’s is remaining open for take-out orders during the shelter-in-place order.
