Best Cochinita Pibil in Sacramento area?

I'm looking for recommendations for the best Cochinita Pibil between, say, Old Sac and Auburn or Folsom.

Thanks for any replies.

      By 'centro downtown' you mean downtown Sacramento, right?

        The restaurant is called "Centro Cocina Mexicana", and it is in midtown, near Sutter's Fort. I second their Cochinita, by the way, it's my favorite. They also have infused tequila's at the bar, the pineapple/chile tequila is fantastic.

          Oh, I see. I had not heard of Centro Cocina Mexicana, but then I live in Placer Country and do not know many of Sacramento's restaurants.

          Thank you very much for the recommendation, Spineguy! I will try the Cochinita there.

    2. my family, who is hispanic, said it was wonderful at tequila museo mayahuel- i think that's the correct name. downtown on k st around 12th...
