Was there for their 'grand' opening. I wasn't thrilled. The food was boring, and the salsa bland. The service was terrible and no one seemed to know what they were doing. The atmosphere is Mexican tacky. Since I run a mobil food trailer and server mexican-american foods, I figure I can judge when their dishes are beyond boring, and have... More

I've been to this location twice (after visiting the one in Spencer which is excellent.) Unfortunately, there must be some management issues and lack of training at this location. I need to eat gluten free and both times the staff wasn't much help. Once I figured out what to have, the food was decent but nothing to write home about.... More

This is a great place, I had the combo plate which consisted of rice, refried beans, enchilada, burrito and a chimichanga, you get to pick three choices. We also had fresh guacamole made right at the table and it was delicious.

The food was delicious. The service was outstanding and the price was reasonable. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but it's beautifully decorated inside and is very clean. We had a combo plate, a burger and fajitas. They have quite a few different flavor margaritas in both regular and virgin. This is pretty authentic Mexican. We will... More

we had a craving for fajitas and chose Mexicali Grill. We decided on the trio of shrimp, beef, and chicken for two. They were wonderful as were the chips, salsa and guacamole that was made tableside. The sangria was also very good. Our server was friendly and cheerful. A fun evening!

Over compensating waitress who didn't know the menu. I just wanted a blk bean and rice burrito with some lettuce in it. "Do you want beans and rice on the side?" Me-no, just in it. Vegan style. Did you want a vegetarian burrito. Me-no...just rice and beans and lettuce. Do you want sour cream and guacamole? The quacamole will be... More

Stopped by for dinner; fajita quesadilla was mostly onions, burrito was ok. Nothing special unfortunately.

The food was great. The guacamole made at table side was very good and made just the way we like it. The atmosphere inside is great too. We definetely go back. Fun place to with friends or on a date. The outside of the place is not extremely inviting as it is in an old strip mall. But get passed... More

Love the Mexicali in Ware. As a big fan of Mexicali in Spencer, we were very glad to have one a little closer to home. Staff is very friendly, and service typically very quick. Definitely a cut above your average mexican restaurant! Try the fajita nachos, or even the chicken wings for a change of pace.

I've been here once, only because I haven't had a chance to go back. But the food was great! The manager greeted me as I walked in, took me to my table, and brought me some freshly made salsa and tortilla chips to start. The place is entirely Mexican-run, but don't let that sway you from visiting. Everyone is very... More
