Good Mexican food for New England. Plentiful servings. My husband and I shared the bacon and shrimp tacos. Delicious.

We brought friends with us New Years Day. We did two Bills because they were trying everything the Great Drinks. We all had fun with the staff. The prices are just right. 5 STARS

This year we started a new tradition on New Year’s Day by going Mexican instead of Italian. In years past we would dine at Dino’s in Worcester on New Year’s Day, but it’s been many a year since we’ve done that since the quality of food and service at Dino’s has left much to be desired for so long now...

Should we start with the Margaritas? of course and end with them too. El Presidente is our favorite. The food is the best Mexican i've had on the east coast. Always consistent, from lunch to dinner. Several locations to visit. The staff is wonderful, friendly and never rushes anyone. Great vegetarian selections also. Bon Appetit.

This place is good. Unfortunately there is not much to compare it with because of the lack of Mexican resteraunts in the area....I have lived out west and this is the most authentic mexican food I have tasted since being out west...

Who could imagine a genuine Mexican restaurant in Spencer Mass. What great flavors with top shelf ingredients ! Big bar but we went for Monday lunch and it was not busy. Service was good and the staff is mostly Mexican. I imagine the same is true in the kitchen. A must stop location.

So after much discussion on where to go for dinner, we decided on Mexicali. I was pestering my wife for few months now to go to the Cambridge rest, but with two kids Spencer was the choice. Even though it was far from Shrewsbury, with the in-roads/City roads with all curves and night coming fast. It was right in the... More

I had the Chicken Enchilada mole and food the flavor to be very good. I noticed a hint of coffee flavor as well. The queso,guac and salsa was great as well. This Mexican food is right up there with the best that I have had. My favorite is the Trappist Beer (Spencer Ale) served on tap. This is only one... More
