We stopped in for a quick dinner. Great prices and excellent specials. Food has tons of flavor. Place is a little small. but we will definitely be back.

“Bad burrito”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Overpriced carnitas burrito. Dry carnitas soaked in grease. Long wait in drive-thru. Dirty restrooms if you get off. Salsa bar was also dirty. Everything is so expensive.

“Serviceable 24 hour taqueria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Great breakfast burritos at reasonable prices. The other burritos and tacos are good too. Their sister drive-thru, Mexicali Chicken and Salads on Imperial Ave. is even better but has limited hours. Get the Greek Chicken Salad, it's amazing!

“Fast mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

The fact that its open 24 hours a day says alot. you can eat there anytime you like anf for people who work late shifts or late hours its a nice break from burgers and well..just smokes taco bell or del taco when it comes to tacos. Its nice that you can access toacos here but they afe not Mexicali tacos, lets be honest only one place to get those. They are a bit on the high side when it comes to tacos but the price of carne asada is not cheao here and they have to cover the 24hr open cost i imagine, really i cant think of any other reason why. The food taste o.k. Atmosphere inside, well what can you say about an old rallys burger stand. There are just several other places in el centro that come to mind first for tacos.
