Where to Find the Best Tacos in Sacramento

If you would like to make it a taco night, visit one of these restaurants around our apartments near Sac State where you'll also find house-made salsa and tableside guacamole:


When a few friends decided to feature global flavors, the Mas Taco Bar was born. It serves non-traditional offerings, and the chefs only use the finest, freshest ingredients. Every plate achieves a balance of sweet, salty, and sour, and there's something for every palate. The restaurant is the perfect place to meet friends before a night on the town. It features a modern setting complete with colorful murals, unique light fixtures, and picture windows. Tacos include Indian butter chicken, duck confit, and fried oyster. Don't forget to ask about the secret offering of the month.


Mayas Taqueria got its start in the Maya family's home kitchen. They lived in a ranching community in Mexico that was an hour away from the nearest town and needed a better way to make a living. Grandma started making tortillas every morning at 6:00, and prepared the meals using vegetables straight from the garden. Today, the family calls California home, and they proudly share their recipes at Mayas Taqueria. For dinner, enjoy the Tacos de Papa Dorados with the fiesta salad.


A Sacramento favorite for over 25 years, Centro Cocina Mexicana offers a vibrant atmosphere where strangers become friends. The chefs prepare regional Mexican cuisine using quality ingredients and authentic techniques. They create everything from scratch, including the corn tortillas. In the dining room, the servers provide a memorable dining experience and know their customers by name. Tacos include De Camote, De Carnitas, and De Carne Asada.

These are just a few of the taco joints close to our apartments near Sacramento State University. If you're searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We'd love for you to see firsthand all we have to offer.
