Been here three times and am still baffled why people like it, other than it is cheap. Food is ok, service is slow, parking isn't always easy. And, they only take cash.

Fun place, outdoor seating. I typically get the open tacos. They are not particularly fancy or gourmet, but they are tasty. Usually quite crowded.

This restaurant is different to say the least, many coin operated children rides, children riding tricycles through the dining area, seating is on picnic tables. Atmosphere is loud and confusing, one must go to the bar to order. Certainly not the place for an romantic...More

I grabbed a quick solo dinner while working a job in the immediate area. Food is ordered at a window and then is delivered to the table. My quesadilla was good. I would have enjoyed it more if I had not been in a hurry....More

Cali N Tito's has delicious food (including yummy vegetarian tacos and empanadas) and a fun, quirky atmosphere. This place is super casual - order at the counter, then choose a picnic table inside or out. The outside area is a kids' wonderland, with old boats...More

Yes! Several times we've decided to eat at home and called in our order. Everything was prepared as requested. Just remember that this is a CASH ONLY establishment. Well worth the trip to an ATM if needed.
