Driving between Manhatten and Montreal, somewhere near the Catskills, and only 5 minutes off the 87 Thruway is this amazing tacos, burittos and quesadillas take out/dine in! A hugely popular place with the locals who know what they like and a top spot to stop off and take a 30 minute break from the drive. The sign on the front... More

DELICIOUS!!!!!! Very yummy also quick and cheap. We were nervous when we realized that were only getting one taco for ~$6, but the portions are huge and the quality is stellar. Also, it was fun to try all of their crazy different hot sauces. So yeah!

This little place is amazing for takeout, but for a sit-down meal, try their restaurant in Poughkeepsie. Mexicali Blue is consistently fabulous. Our out-of-town visitors always require a meal from Mexicali Blue- fine with this host! I love the guacamole or the portobello/squash burritos, but each has gotten great reviews from friends and family. I would pay a bit extra... More

Dependably tasty lunch from this tiny joint. They cook the tuna perfectly and generally it's a pretty nice cut of fish! Add to that the wasabi drizzle and it's delicious. Seating may be scarce (it's a 'stand' after all), but there are a few spots. Recommend.

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.
