Ordered three different burritos and a side of chorizo rice so we could share among the family. All three burritos were small and tasted the same, with no difference of flavor. They were very skimpy with the meat, mostly packed with filler of dry rice...and black beans which were old and hard. No sauces or fresh tomatoes to moisten the burrito. It was like eating a brick. The chorizo rice and meat was also dry and robbery. Then the finale was being charged over $52!!!. I miss the Taco Shack down the road. They have closed unfortunately due to Covid. I will never go back to Mexicali Blue again, terrible food and a rip off.More

When we're on our way back home in need of a "all in one meal" we call ahead and order burritos to go. We like the portabello and the fish. Big fat, consistent burritos. Hot sauces galore, some that will burn going in and out!

I've lived in town for 35 years and I finally stopped in. Why did I wait so long? Great Mexican cuisine at a more than fair price. Check in out on your stroll through New Paltz.

The food here is is full of flavor. I usually have a chicken burrito and they are HUGE! They have a really nice variety of hot sauces too.

The food is good and is not expensive!. Only seats about 6-8. Anthony Bordain ate here and liked it.

I know the tiny room may be deceiving, but Mexicali Blue has really great and fresh Mexican food. They are always a great option to order out (eating there is a bit cramped). Such tasty food and fresh!

Our family has been coming here for many years - anytime we are passing through New Paltz or in the area for a weekend getaway. We stopped here the other day for lunch and it is every bit as delicious as we remembered. We had...4 tacos - steak, mango catfish, ahi tuna and salmon. We also had the chips and guac. Everything was delicious but the steak tacos and the guac were amazing. Highly recommended!More

Even my picky eater toddlers were impressed with the Mexican fare at this tiny hole-in-the-wall on the main drag. There’s not much seating—we sat at the single outside table, chatting with passersby—but the food is fast and tasty. The staff was really friendly, and it’s...not wonder so many locals are regulars. There’s an abundance of hot sauces available, something for every taste.More

Little hole in the wall, limited seating, but some of the best tacos we have tried. Kind of a funky vibe. We really enjoyed this.

Best meal I had in New Paltz. Try the Brooklyn. Only flaw, 'tacos' come on flour tortillas, But you can ask for them to substitute corn instead. Guac delicious as well.
