By looking at it you would never enter - and you would just miss a big treat. This place has not changed much in the past 15 years, neither the interior (which is a bit sad) nor the food, which is great. I am yet...More

Great Tex-mex. If you leave here hungry it is your fault. Great Tex-mex for reasonable prices. Good chips with home made salsa. I usually have the cheese enchiladas and I am always satisfied. Good service and good drinks

This place is small and hard to find, but it is hidden gem. Salsa is homemade. Chili relines have really good flavor. Nachos are tasty and have tons of meat and cheese. Prices are very, very reasonable. Service is a bit slow but overall caring....More

We should have walked out when we walked in, but we gave it a chance. Service was horrible, queso had no flavor, and my flautas came out cold soaked in grease. The place needs to be closed scrubbed down, repainted, and repaired. Never again!

Ok, it'n not fancy but they got the flavor, excellent ingredients and an amazing service by a very gently staff, and at a very friendly price, the Day combo at $4.99. If you like Tex-Mex food this is the place.

If you like good Mexican hole-in-the wall, strip-mall, neighborhood restaurants that serve outstanding food, you owe yourself a visit to Mexicali. Our part of five had beef fajitas, chicken fajitas, chicken tacos and poblano with beef. High marks all-around. Server committed the cardinal sin of...More
