Freshest food ever!

The food is amazing and it is all homemade and always fresh. Closest thing to a southern California Mexican restaurant!

I'm from California. This place made it feel like I was right back home. The food is great. Homemade chips and guacamole to live for. The only thing I would recommend they change slightly is the ground beef recipe. The beef was on the dry side. I would go back in a heart beat. Thanks Cali Burito. You rock!!

The food is very good. The prices are great. The staff is so friendly. Not sure what else to say, other than you gotta try it.

Let me start by saying Id never heard of this place, so when we rolled up at 1050 am after the half marathon I was questioning if the business was still functioning. Right on Hamilton Street in a section surrounded by vacant businesses full of graffiti, this little place must be doing something right I thought. It opened right on... More

Absolutely THE best tacos around! My family & I eat here on a regular basis. Never wait too long for your food no matter how busy they are and never had any problem with my order. Highly recommend!

Be prepared to wait in line, as they are almost always packed to the gills. But the mouthwatering creations are perfection in a basket. The fresh house made chips are great when paired with their salsas. I have yet to have a bad meal there. The burritos are huge. But the San Diego fish tacos are my favor by far.... More

Having lived in Southern Ca, I miss the little mom and pop stands where the Mexican food is great, the portions large and the ambiance easy. Cali Burito hits it all. My personal fav is the Old Monterey Burito with steamed pork carnitas, beans and guac. If you come around lunch or dinner call ahead and you can have your... More

This place was packed when we walked in on a Sunday so we knew we were in the right spot. It has a great menu with lots of choices. My kids had tacos and my husband and I had burritos and it was all delicious. The chips were amazing, have a very nice spice mix on them. The place is... More

I always make it a mission of mine to get Cal Burrito when ever I am in town. It's that type of unique place that will surely not disappoint. I have never been disappointed with any menu item I have ordered. I usually go with one of there burritos that include a side of house made chips and unlimited fresh... More

I have been there many times. Nothing fancy, kind of has a collage vibe to it, but the food is great,which is what keeps me coming back. Heads up, most week days for lunch the line can be out the door
