This is truly local food from the Yolo burrito to the Steak Adobe salad. Always good and always fresh. The first place I suggest when in Davis and often someone else suggests it before me. Supportive of local causes and super takeaway and catering menu. A consistent favorite.

Dos has an amazing southwest themed menu and all items on the menu are delicious. While not quite traditional mexican food (more tex mex) it is always cooked well and other than varying a little at times on spiciness, it is very consistent so if you find something you really like you can be confident it will be the same...

We frequent Dos in part because the owner has been incredibly supportive of our community. The food is very good and dependable. The restaurant is a little noisy for me but it doesn't seem to phase the younger set. Our young adult children recommended it to us and we've been going back ever since.

Wasn't sure what to expect - I wasn't really in the mood for regular Mexican so I tried Hanks Cubano on the lunch special board - it was great - a little bit of everything.

We take our grandkids here every time we visit Davis. Never disappoints, something for everyone and always good food. Yes, it can be noisy but it's a great place to take the family.

I always get the Adobe steak salad. It is very large and can easily feed 2 people. The shrimp burrito has been consistently good. They have a fancy fountain drink set up that the kids love. When the Woodland Costco has gift cards it's a great deal. $40 for a $50 card. I load up when they have them because... More

Sure, the atmosphere is a little lacking, the menu has been the same for decades, and the portions have been getting smaller. All that aside, the quality remains excellent. The menu, while it doesn't vary, is large enough that there is plenty to try. While the Border Burrito and the Southwest Burrito are the classic go-tos, the Mahi Mahi Burrito... More

We went for lunch with our soccer team of 18+ kids and their parents for lunch. Good for a group as you pay on ordering and food is served to you. Varied Mexican food menu and very tasty. We ate at the restaurant in a modern type strip mall in Davis. Would have much preferred a little more atmosphere. Prices... More

A favorite restaurant by locals and students, fresh Mexican entrees a la California please all customers. Two restaurants in Davis serve outstanding salads, enchiladas and burritos. Outdoor seating is available.
