Small hole in the wall, great for food on the go. Ingredients were fresh and made to order. Burrito was big enough to satisfy the largest appetites. Really enjoyed my burrito and will stop again when in town. Only negative, basically no where to sit.

Trip to New Paltz was topped off by a visit to Mexicali Blue, where we had catfish tacos and the catfish burrito, all of which were wonderfully spicy and juicy. Sat in Anthony Bordain's seat out front, and Rocked the Fish Taco.

A tiny little space on main street that produces excellent fish tacos and a great veggie burrito. Loads of other variations, but these are the stand out items.

I had the guacamole burrito and although it was good, it reminded me of chipotle. If you like hot sauces, they have a bunch of flavors that seemed interesting. Friendly service and good prices

This place has the best burritos I've ever had. They make everything fresh to order and the quality is fantastic. If you are passing through town and need a quick bite definitely stop here.

This is our most frequented take-out place in town - the burritos and tacos are fresh, made to order and delicious. The prices are high for a take-out taco joint but the food is worth it. Great service. There are a few tables to eating-in and they have a little outside seating in the summer.

There are so many cute restaurant choices on Main Street in New Paltz but don't over look this tiny place. There are only seats for about 8 people. Its a tiny little spot with amazing food. Can't wait to... More

Hunger drove me here on a long drive---I can't say no to a good burrito, and they didn't fail to please. Split a chili-lime burrito & a shrimp quesadilla. In both cases, the meats were very well seasoned, and the additional ingredients (onions, cilantro, corn, rice, etc...) all complimented the dishes well. The variety of homemade hot sauces add some... More

The food here is very good and fresh. They cook it right in front of you. BUT, it's kind of like a Moe's or Chipotle on steroids with the prices to match. All in our party enjoyed their food but the burrito is the way to go, it's approximately $10 alacarte. One taco will run you $6-$7 alacarte. They make... More

This is a tiny little place and sort of hard to find, but look for it right on Main Street in New Paltz. A business associate recommended it and I stopped in while passing through the town. The fish tacos made here are the best I have eaten certainly on the East Coast and possibly countrywide (including California). Burritos are... More
