Fresh food for a short time budget

Very fresh food with great flavor on a time budget. If you go during peak hours there will be a line (out the door) You order at the counter and your food is brought to your table. Vegetarian options available which I appreciated. I Will return.

The food here is always good and reasonably priced. The seating is limited there so we mainly do take out.

We will occasionally order from Cali Burito for lunch. The food is always great and the sizes are large. Never any problems with the order not being right. The salsa and chips are great also.

Having lived in California and coming out to the East Coast, we found a dearth of good Mexican restaurants. Cali Burito to the rescue! This is one of the few places in the Lehigh Valley that serves good Mexican (not Carribean) food. The ingredients are all fresh. The burritos are stuffed fat (I often can only manage half a burrit...

Southern California Beach Bar moves to Allentown ,PA. Atmosphere, california casual, utilitarian furnishings. Food is the best Tex Mex in the area. Lots of variety and selections, salsa and condiments are on a large table with a good variety. Beacause of the poularity there is also a lot of take out activity but the line to order moves along quickly.

We just had (takeout) lunch from Cali Burrito today, and I have to say, every visit is a good one - whether it's dining in or bringing it home. The selection is fantastic (but not overwhelming) and the prices are affordable. One of my favorite things is the assortment of house-made salsas that you can load up on once you've... More

If you want delicious burritos at a good price this is the best place in the area. Burritos are served with tortilla chips and at least 3 types of salsa are available. There is a specialty burrito on the menu every week. Burritos can be served as rice bowls as well. The Monterey, is our favorite burrito. Many extra items... More

Each time I visit Cali Burrito I am never disappointed by the food. It is always delicious and I love the homemade salsa station. They do need to work on their restrooms though.

We stopped here on our way to Hershey for lunch. It was packed and very popular. It's only 5 minutes from Dorney Park. As soon as tables opened up they cleaned them for the next group. Fast service. It's self serve, no waitress service. You go to the counter, order and then sit till they call your number. We enjoyed... More

Stopped on our way home from vacation at the Jersey Shore. Not far off the highway and definitely worth it. We had chicken tacos and fish tacos. A hard taco wrapped in a soft shell-California style, I guess. Anyway, excellent tacos. Plenty of parking, quick service.
