“Great chicken Burritos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

If you like fish, chicken, or steak burritos... I mean a huge size, this is the place for you. I would say much better than any chipotle burrito. Small little place, so better for take out.

“Good Fresh Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

A great place to stop for a fast lunch. The owner has created as much seating as he could in this tiny place, and it's not very much. However, the fish tacos are great (try the tuna). The service is friendly and everything is quickly cooked to order. There are healthy options, both fish and vegetarian. A very popular place, especially (but not only) with young people.

“Refreshing Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Good Mexican food is hard to find on the East Coast, but Mexicali Blue is worth the visit. Although small (seats 7 people on a good day) the food is worth the wait or great for taking out. Nothing is frozen and/or packaged and it shows. We received large burritos full of flavor and quality products. Also, there are different homemade sauces that can be added to the tacos and burritos to further tailor the taste of the food. It was so delicious, we can't wait for our next visit.

“Great Mexican Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

I'm originally from Southern California and finding good Mexican food on the East Coast can be a bit of a chore. Mexicali Blues does not disappoint. The fish tacos are as good as any I've ever had. Warm soft tortillas, fresh ingredients, and a crazy selection of salsas make this a great place to stop and soak in the small-town feel of New Paltz. The seating is limited but that's usually the case with any good taco stand.

“Excellent mexican in a compact space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The food is fresh and prepared to order. The wait can be long, it's very popular and seating is very limited. Plan to do take out
