This is a great casual spot--Mexican with the "Cali" twist....excellent and delicious food options that you customize to your liking. Awesome salsa choices too--all homemade, fresh as though you made it yourself but with heir special flavor flair.Oh, super guac. too!

Cali Burrito provides consistently good food. Lots of choices and great quality! We usually get a burrito and share it for lunch. The salsas are made in-house and the "special" salsa changes daily. Cali has moved to a new address ; we haven't tried the new place yet, but we will.

Cali Burrito offers a large selection of very diverse and creative California Mexican cuisine. The lines can be very long at the dinner and lunch hour. However very worth the wait. Their homemade salsa is out of this world. I would certainly consider trying this restaurant and it's California style fare. BYOB.

Cali burrito is very close to my work and is my frequent spot for a which lunch. I usually get their humbolt burrito which is awesome. Staff is friendly. However the place is tiny and can fill up easily during lunch. Hopefully that changes with their move to a newer location. Highly recommended

We stopped here on our way to NYC for Nina Conti'a first US tour and Hamilton. We had lunch - steak quesadilla and tacos. So good! If you like chips - order them extra. Only a small amount with taco order. The large order of guac is really Large. So really mean large if you order the large. Hipster atmosphere.... More

If you've been there once you can come back years later and it will still impress. Fresh salsas are delicious, food is always prepared correctly with rotating burrito of the week. A must try if you want tacos or burritos.

I'm not a vegetarian but I typically don't eat much meat or poultry, and this is a place with lots of vegetarian options! Tofu etc.. but on this occasion I got an "old Monterrey" burrito with chicken, rice, beans, cheese, and guac. It was delicious as always but for me it had too much chicken so I'd probably stick to...

They do what they do very well. I tried the el Dorado and the Old Monterey burritos. Both were delicious and the staff was very friendly.

The burritos were large and satisfying but expensive. And they weren't the best I've had because it was mainly rice and beans with a little meat and no tomatoes, lettuce or corn to liven the taste up.

My most favorite thing though is the chips and salsa bar! It gets very busy though so definitely leave yourself enough time to stand in line

At Cali Burrito we aim to provide the healthiest, best tasting food possible in a minimum amount of time. Founders Shawn and Nick wanted to bring the Cali vibe to the Lehigh Valley after living in California for 10 years. The idea for the restaurant was born out of numerous surf trips up and down the California coast. So sit back, enjoy a burrito and feel that mellow Cali vibe. Our food is fresh, our flavor bold. Just let us know if you want some heat! We use locally made organic tofu from Fresh Tofu, Inc., environmentally friendly sugar cane plates and 'plasticware', 0 gm. transfat vegetable frying oil, local organic produce in season and organic coffee. We don't use lard or MSG. Feel Free to B.Y.O.B
