El Pueblo Meat Market and Taqueria/Deli

43 Main St, Winters (opposite side from the Buckhorn and a few doors west)
open 7 days until 9pm
Price range

Chuy's Taqueria is the familiar option for great Mexican food in Winters. However, if you like your tacos and burritos from inside a carniceria, look around the corner for El Pueblo Meat Market and Taqueria/Deli. The quality of the tacos here surpasses that of the Davis taquerias (only the West Davis branch of Chuy's is comparable), so it's worth a trip.

Tacos are $1.25 and contain a generous portion of meat. Meats available are:

- Asada/Beef
- Pollo/Chicken
- Carnitas/Deep Fried Pork
- Adobada/Marinated Pork (= al pastor)
- Camaron/Shrimp
- Birria/Seasoned Beef
- Chorizo/Sausage
- Lengua/Beef Tongue
- Cachete/Beef Cheek (particularly juicy and delicious)
- Carne Molida/Ground Beef
- Tripas/Tripe

Salsas and tortilla chips (circular and not fresh fried, unfortunately) are complimentary. Horchata is a good way to rehydrate after biking out here. Menudo is served Saturday and Sunday.

As for the meat market, it is extensive and affordably priced. This would be a good place for the Mexican specialties that are harder to find in Davis, such as goat meat and Oaxacan string cheese.
