I was introduced to Cali by a coworker and fell in love with the food. I've only tried the Santa Barbara which is pulled chicken on a hard + soft taco shell and comes with tortilla chips. The salsa bar is great with a new salsa or two every time I have visited. I would definitely recommend this place to... More

This is a very good local place which is fun to have around. It has tasty tex-mex, california-style burritos, tacos, enchiladas, salads, and sauces. The homemade salsas are delicious and change daily depending on what produce is available or in season. The foods taste good but not amazing but it is nice to have them in town. Nice hippie-like atmosphere... More

We've enjoyed Cali Burrito for at least five years now. The food is always fresh and each portion is very generous. Better take out place than eat in as it is a bit small and usually crowded. El Dorado is a family favorite. Salsa choices are great with fresh chips.

I eat here probably twice a month and absolutely love it. Granted, there are not a ton of burrito places in the valley, but Cali makes up for it. The fresh salsa is my favorite!

It was thanks to a kid my husband coached that we tried Cali Burrito! Just one visit and we've been hooked! They offer a nice variety of tacos, burritos, and salads without being too overwhelming. I always get the Santa Fe chicken tacos, and they are the best! Grilled chicken, with the taco fixings, plus this awesome sauce and hard/soft... More

The good: Generally the food is very good here. Great salsa, homemade corn chips, good smoky flavor in the chicken. Good guacamole. Lots of different options. The bad: They take more care in the food than the customer experience. The same girl at the counter greets us with a frown every time, like she just doesn't want to be inconvenienced... More

I am an Allentown native and when I come back to visit my family, I usually stop by this place. It's down to earth and I know the food is fresh and real. Groovy place!

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.
