We take out from tiny Mexicali Blue almost every week or at least twice a month; so we have eaten from here maybe 50-60 times so far. When our family is visiting, the younger crowd also likes to take out from Mexicali. More than anything...More

This tiny, healthy burrito and taco joint is not your standard Mexican faire. They use no canned products. Everything is incredibly fresh and they make all their own hot sauces. If you are looking for traditional Mexican, this is not it. We usually call ahead...More

I was raised on the border and love a good soft taco -- and that's what they have here. Many, many varieties of hot sauce add to the experience -- try the Lime or the Habanero. The steak tacos were cooked to order and were...More

But this place is great for take-out. The tacos are really good and burritos were excellent. Plan for a bit of time if you wait though since they are usually busy so the food comes out at a more leisurely pace.

Started with the tortilla soup which was outstanding! Then a pork burrito which was excellent as well. So glad we stopped here!

We often call in an order and pick it up from here. My bf pretty much always gets the mango catfish tacos. The other tacos are good, but not as bold of seasoning as I might choose. Decent guac, good service, and tasty hot sauces.

The food was good. Ordered grill salmon on taco, it was very tasty and healthy at the same time! Also ordered chicken quesadilla.. They were ok.. The good part is they had no fryers so everything was healthy. On the downside, it is a small...More
