“Excellent Food, Nice Atmosphere, Quick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

I have driven by this place a number of times and never stopped in. But I finally did and boy, was I pleased! This far surpasses places like Chipotle and even Moes. The food was fresh and the chips were unquestionably homemade and delicious. The staff was polite too... and this was during the busy lunch rush on a Saturday. I thought the prices also fit what you got. A job well-done to the team here. I believe this place will turn into a craving for me. I suggest you give it a try!

“Craving me some Cali Burrito”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I can't go more than a month without one of Cali Burrito's Fish Tacos. They are my favorite! The place is a bit of a dive, but they have the best food around and the staff is always cheery. They also have homemade chips that will keep you coming back for more. And what's even better is its super affordable!

“Couldn't even finish it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We came here on our way home from the poconos and saw Cali Burrito on trip advisor and saw all the good reviews so decided to give it a shot. The restaurant does not have a bad appearance but it is not the nicest place. Cali burrito is what you would expect from a burrito place. We both got the same burrito called the "big spur" that had teak, pinto beans, rice, ranchero sauce and cheese. What we received was anything but that. First off the "steak" was not steak at all. It taste exactly like pulled pork when i took my first bite i had to look back up on the menu and re read what i had ordered just to see if by mistake it had pulled pork inside. The white rice was cold and old. The cheese was cold low quality shred cheese. The burrito was horrible normally i am not a very picky eater and i will normally finish anything i have ordered because i do not like to waste food but i could not even eat half of my burrito and ended up having to leave and find somewhere else to eat. Now i do not expect super high quality food when it is $20 for 2 burritos, but what i received wasn't even as good as a taco bell. overall horrible experience and will not be coming back
