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 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.

  • Chipotle
    • $4.95 for a vegetarian burrito.
  • Chuy's Taqueria
    • Regular: $4.50+tax, Super: $6.50+tax. Chips are included. They serve them "wet" (with a bit of sauce poured on them) on a plate, with a garnish of shredded lettuce and a piece of tomato. The Regular contains rice, beans, and meat. The Super also has sour cream, sliced avocado, and cheese. They are "taqueria size", meaning large. There is no vegetarian burrito on the menu. Since there is no salsa or other flavoring, they tend to be bland. Rating=5 —SteveDavison

    • Breakfast Burrito - $5.50 - Eggs, red & green bell peppers, chiles, cilantro, spices, potatoes, cheese, and salsa in a flour tortilla. Tasty and quite filling. (Though, perhaps a bit dry. Add a little sauce of some sort and you'll be fine.)

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.

2005-04-20 22:21:38   I miss Nugget burritos. I cannot go into the North Davis Nugget without feeling great sadness over their disappearance. —JessicaLuedtke


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
