El Novillero

El Novillero has been a mainstay of the Sacramento Mexican food scene for decades — it celebrated 50 years in business last July . Known for its classic décor and even more classic menu based on recipes passed down through generations of the Davalos family , the restaurant still makes everything from scratch every day from fresh , local ingredients . The carnitas a la tampiqueña are a crowd favorite , served with a cheese enchilada , rice , beans , avocado slices , pico de gallo and tortillas .
