Went with two friends who got the jalapeño quesedilla which was OK could have had more flavour and the jalepenos were oddly sweet. Saved by the provided hot sauce and salsa.I had a paleo salad that was nice and tasty good amount and mix of fresh salad but again needed some fresh coriander or lime or dressing but overall good...

For anyone from the States, I would liken this restaurant to Moe's Southwest Mexican Grill. You go up and order what you want on your nachos, tacos, burrittos, ect. I took my on the go so it was really convenient. It's cheap, fast and tastes really good.

I called in Mexicali in Newmarket today for lunch. I had the Taco salad. It was superb. All the ingredients were lovely and fresh. Price a little on the high side. Staff could be a little more friendly and attentive. Didn't make conversation or eye contact. Apart from this, superb food . I would go back again.

Hard to find good Mexican food in Auckland, but this is authentic with a long Hippie influence from California. Lots of house made salsas for every taste. Friendly staff.

We found this restaurant after searching the area for something other than Asian food. Auckland has so many Asian restaurants and some are very good, but they need more variety. We were there for lunch, a little later than the usual noon time and it was not busy, so we had prompt service. We enjoyed the quesadillas and it was... More

If you're into having an unpretentious mexican meal, Mexicali is ok. A place with some classical food we are all used to eat, and the price is just fare. They can get your order in a minute, but that certainly won't be something you will not forget.

First time eating here. Big mexican fan. Left wanting. Felt like a mexican version of subway with a limited menu and value for money wasn't that great - left wanting more food.

The first time we went to Mexicali Newmarket. We had an excellent service by the Filipina manager. This time, the lady who served us was not very friendly or helpful. She even walked away from the counter while I was still paying and left my food on her side which was unreachable. I had to ask her to hand me... More

I was enticed in by the bright Mexican hues on a rainy day and it certainly warmed me up! The food is fast and tasty, its nice to see exactly what you'll be getting before you order. My only complaint was the portion of nachos and the toppings were a bit stingy for my liking. Otherwise a solid choice for... More

Our food is the best you’ll find anywhere. Every day we chop our salsas, grill and roast our meats and fry our chips so you will have the freshest, most flavourful meal you can get. We’ve got frosty margaritas, great tunes, surf videos, and an astonishing selection of tequila and Mexican cerveza. Settle in with an ice-cold Corona and fat burrito, you are transported to Baja or San Diego. Even with a line out the door, the service at Mexicali Fresh is the fastest and friendliest around. Come on in and take a trip to California without ever leaving NZ!
