I posted this on Yelp but it was deleted... I've been going to Mexicali Taco for about two years and have given the place a lot of business, but I'm never going again after today. The girls at the front counter were so rude and nasty that I have no choice but to be turned off by the likelihood that... More

We stopped in for a quick dinner. Great prices and excellent specials. Food has tons of flavor. Place is a little small. but we will definitely be back.

Overpriced carnitas burrito. Dry carnitas soaked in grease. Long wait in drive-thru. Dirty restrooms if you get off. Salsa bar was also dirty. Everything is so expensive.

Great breakfast burritos at reasonable prices. The other burritos and tacos are good too. Their sister drive-thru, Mexicali Chicken and Salads on Imperial Ave. is even better but has limited hours. Get the Greek Chicken Salad, it's amazing!

If you don't like to cross over the border to eat tacos/burritos, this should meet your appetite. It's not the best but far from the worst. The big plus is that they're open 24/7. That means whatevertime your in the mood, they will be open. They have breakfast burrito specials that are reasonable, other items are a bit high. In... More

I regularly travel through El Centro on my way to/from destinations in Imperial Valley. I make sure either go or coming that I stop at Mexicali Taco for fresh, made to order tacos or burritos. I usually order to go plates, but sometimes will sit there sharing tables with area families who also know that this is the "go to... More
