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.
