Amazingly fresh and delicious

So very glad that Calu was able to re-open after their unfortunate fire. No matter what you out order, you will never be disappointed. The taco salad is amazing with or without pork. Ingredients are always super fresh and their homemade salsa is second to none. Your wait time is often long due to... read more

It's a simple little place with a big following. The food is always consistent and tasty. The burritos are very large and great for sharing

Basic home owned built on Chipotle model. Not done on a line, you order and your burrito comes out to you. I like the Carnitas (Pork) but it has gotten so salty, I'm wondering if I'll go back.

Love this place, it's definitely the best spot for tacos/burritos in the area!! Everything I've gotten here has been delicious. The salsas are excellent as well as the chips.

The tacos are so good! At times I have wished I could order only one because they are so filling, but they come in pairs only. Love the hard shell in the soft shell, and ingredients are fresh and tasty.

The food was very bland and had no flavor. Also ordered a large Guac ($6.50 for the Guac....ouch!!!!), and this too had no flavor. Must admit that their salsas were the best thing at this establishment. My wife had a steak burrito and I had the pork burrito. The burritos were very large, but as mentioned, a lot of no... More

Very good lunch food made to order. The prep is a little slow at peak times. The burritos are too big to fit in your mouth but when you do, they are yummy. With the options available at Chipotle, Cali Burrito may not be long for this world.

Cali Burito has a nice, relaxing atmosphere. Their food is unique and great tasting. The portions aren't huge, but they are reasonably priced. Take out is efficient, but it can be awkward finding a place to wait. We always get the Sonoma.

People love this place. Why?? I think if there were other Mexican type places around this would not be so revered. It's not really real "Mexican" even. I grew up in CA and the burrito craze is pretty much over there but in its heyday, the burritos were fresher and not loaded with your entire daily sodium allotment. I have... More

Stopped with the wife on just a chance that they might have something different. We took a chance on the San Diego which is a fish concoction that we fell in love with. A truly great pick and of course we'll return to enjoy the very same. A must try.
