“The Best Mexican Food in Oakland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

My girlfriend turned me onto this place years ago when I first moved here. I've been coming here regularly ever since. Even after my girlfriend and I broke up. The food is consistently good and well prepared.

“Mexicali Rose ho hum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

Mexicali Rose food I've sampled was passable and not much more. I wasn't impressed by the taste of its food, it wasn't bad, just wasn't that good, lacks a taste that I would want to come back for. I'd rather go to Taqueria El Farolito for one of their tasty burritos instead.
