This list wouldn’t be complete without sharing where to get pizza late at night. Woodstock’s is a popular place downtown you can sit down at or choose to pay for delivery.

There are many Thai restaurants around Davis, but this one is popular for its good food, relatively cheap prices, and late closing times. You order at the counter and then find a table, so food is brought to you fairly quickly.

8. In-N-Out Burger

Our fries are made from fresh, real potatoes that are hand-washed, peeled, cut and cooked in 100% vegetable oil.
