We are local, but visited between sessions of the NCAA basketball tournament first round. They were well prepared for the rush of diners between sessions. We were seated quickly and served in plenty of time to return to the arena. The food is good, though not the best Mexican food ever. It is noisy because of the concrete floor.

This was my first visit. The was good, fairly typical Mexican food. I might have given them a higher rating but they charge for queso. We order a small cup and it was $6-7 and looked and tasted like melted Velvetta. Our meal was good, the servers were very friendly, the place was clean and overall a good experience. The... More

I have been to this place several times and it's always really good. Crunchy chips and great queso! I have been more blown away before by Mexican food, but I can't complain about this place as it is very good and we will return!

Great food and fresh ingredients abound in all selections off the menu. The guacamole is hearty and bold and the salsa has a homemade taste that is quite good and not overwhelming. Take the family or a date or just grab your friends and give it a try. The beer is cold and the margarita's are very tangy. It is... More

Been here many times over the years, mostly for office group dinings, occasionally for a quick lunch. It's location is great for dining before a concert at the Brady, but you can't leave your car in their parking lot during the concert. They have a large parking lot which is great at lunch time. It's a large wide-open restaurant which... More

I give Mexicali's 4 stars because I have had great experiences there for lunch. It is rare in that it is downtown and has lots of parking space, making it easy to get in and out of for lunch hour. The service is intentionally speedy as well during this time. Chips and salsa is fine, and I like that each... More

The food would have earned a 4 star review but the service was horrible. I understand when you have a large group that patience is required. But when you see the large party that came in after you get seated, patience goes out the window! Especially when the manager proceeds to tell you that he has done this for 20... More

The food was great, service was good and really good margaritas. The atmosphere was nothing special, but for a casual dinner it was just fine.
