MMMmmm burritos. Those filling, nutritious, healthful, affordable, and vegetarian-friendly meals. I could live (and have lived) off them.

The burritos found in Davis are usually heavily influenced by the style developed in the [sf]Mission District of San Francisco. That is to say, they are large, foil wrapped, have additional fillings over your standard burrito, and a "super" version is generally available. So... don't complain about authenticity because the burritos aren't like the ones you're used to in LA... welcome to NorCal.

For those that like veggie burritos with vegetables in them, check out El Mariachi, El Toro Bravo, Tres Hermanas, and Taqueria Davis.

El Mariachi has the best burritos. they are the only place in davis that serves nepales (cactus). their nepales asada burrito is to die for. plus they have a gajillion salsas, strawberry, pumpkin, mango, pineaple, cactus, cucumber, chipotle, tomatillo, avacado, garlic(my favorite), corn, various chile flavors, and many others that i forgot.

2005-04-28 00:20:14   Favorite burritos: #1 Adalberto's (Carne Asada) [baja style.. in sac], #2 Dos Coyotes [southwest-style], #3 El Mariachi [mexican], #4 Ali Baba [mediterranean faux-mexican fusion] —JaimeRaba

2005-05-23 11:31:52   Random burrito thoughts: Dos Coyotes "Pialla Burrito" is one of my favorites in Davis. Burritos from Guadalajara are better wet (with enchilada sauce). I am not sure how La Esperanza stays in business (the food is expensive and not that good). If you're in Sac and like Fish Burritos, try Pescados. You can still get Nugget burritos in Woodland (I am not sure about South Davis). —AlexPomeranz

2005-08-23 21:39:53   Does anyone else remember La Bamba ("Burritos as Big as Your Head"), or is it my imagination? Who took their place? —SteveDavison

2006-10-23 01:59:13   nOpales, not nepales...as I'm pretty sure they don't make salsa out of people from Nepal. And yes, garlic is the best =) —TylerFelix
