Great Food and Atmosphere

Mexicali has excellent food and a great atmosphere. Everyone was pleasent and inviting. Prices are more than normal for Mexican, although are inline with other family restaurants.

I love mexican so I was looking forward to trying this. First, I'm not a big drinker so the margarita was fine being light on the alcohol. Second, the staff doesn't help much. I asked our waitress what she would recommend and she said she hadn't actually tried anything on the menu. She could have side-stepped the question and said... More

The ambience is really good, service is good, food is good as well. Only Mexican food in this small town. This is a plus especially you have to drive 30 minutes to 45 minutes to find a decent place to eat.

The Mexicali's in Ware, Mass., is located in a strip mall. This usually doesn't bode well, but don't let it stop you. This is about the best Mexican place we've stumbled into. They make up the guacamole at your table, which is fun. The drinks are excellent, and we have never had a meal there that wasn't at least excellent,... More

We go here once or twice a month. I love this place. It's cheery and welcoming inside. The staff are exceptional and the service is the best. Food is great and so are the margarita's. I love the street taco's and city taco's. The mango salsa is the best. Fun place to go with family and friends.

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!
