Kids friendly not great food

We ate dinner at Mexicali restaurant. Nice activities for the kids, friendly staff. The kids enjoyed seeing a show, hold a pigeon and got balloons. However, if you are going for the food there are many better Mexican restaurants in the area.

Didn't really have high expectations going in. Just wanted something quick. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! As we walked in, we were welcomed with the sound of jazz music, seated immediately, chips were on the table before our coats were off. Server was super nice, fajitas were great and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back!!

Let's start this off correctly, this isn't upscale Mexican, that's not their market. But what is their market is solid food at a solid price. Everyone was very friendly, from the guy that brought the chips the host the server and everything in between. It was exceptionally clean, and very tasty. Isn't that what all matters?

So, my wife, daughter and I are Labor Day party animals. We had spent the better part of this holiday looking at cars for our daughter and it was as late as we were hungry. Labor Day means while some places are open, by nightfall, many others are wrapping up because, well, it's a slow evening. By now, we were... More

service was ok but the food is a bit bland. The cheese dip was runny like it had been watered down and the chips tasted stale. I ordered the chicken taco's thinking how can you go wrong and it was nothing to write home about. Not much flavor and very bland. When I got back to the office after lunch,... More

We walked from our hotel, looking for another restaurant, when we found this place. It was warm and inviting on a cold and snowy night in Nashville. The margarita was just right and the food was like most Mexican restaurants. They served the chips and salsa to start, and they were so inviting, we ate two baskets. The didn't have... More

The food is nothing to write home about, but decent. When they have live music, it's good - but too loud!

While some members of my family really like this restaurant, it is merely average to me. There are so many better Mexican-type restaurants in Franklin, I don't like to come here anymore. The cheese dip is good and they do have tons of seating.

My husband and arrived for a late lunch and they let us order off the lunch menu. I had chicken fajitas and they were some of the best I've ever eaten! They added grilled tomatoes with the peppers and onions and they were awesome!
