We travel through Allentown once or twice a year and I select the restaurants we visit based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were anxious to check out Cali Burrito for lunch. I loved the fresh, local, vegetarian friendly concept and the salsa bar sounded great. Unfortunately, we found our selections to lack flavor and I did not care for the... More

Very creative menu, the whole family was pleased. For something different try the smoked tofu. And that's coming from a true meatatarian. Usually only like tofu floating in my miso but I will be ordering a vegetarian selection during next visit to cali, , the smoked tofu is that good.

I have driven by this place a number of times and never stopped in. But I finally did and boy, was I pleased! This far surpasses places like Chipotle and even Moes. The food was fresh and the chips were unquestionably homemade and delicious. The staff was polite too... and this was during the busy lunch rush on a Saturday.... More

I can't go more than a month without one of Cali Burrito's Fish Tacos. They are my favorite! The place is a bit of a dive, but they have the best food around and the staff is always cheery. They also have homemade chips that will keep you coming back for more. And what's even better is its super affordable!

Stopped here for lunch a few months ago. Place was packed but service was quick and the food was fantastic. Priced right and authentic.

We came here on our way home from the poconos and saw Cali Burrito on trip advisor and saw all the good reviews so decided to give it a shot. The restaurant does not have a bad appearance but it is not the nicest place. Cali burrito is what you would expect from a burrito place. We both got the... More

Nice place to go when looking for a quick meal and you're not wanting fast food or bar food. Always clean, well staffed, and good food.

Stopped in for dinner on the recommendation of some locals and couldn't have been happier. The portions are great, especially for the price, and the freshly made chips are hot, crispy, and prepared to hold their homemade salsa. All of the staff seems genuinely happy to be there and you can really see the love they put into their food.

My folks recommended this place to me and now I eat here every Thursday when I come through for work. The El Dorado is an amazing burrito. They have a big portion size and fresh crispy chips as a side. It's a near Cali setting too, really gives you a surfs up vibe.
