We were advised when in town to check this place out, but to only order takeout. That became apparent when we walked in to place our order. There's almost no seating, but that didn't seem to be slowing business down. I ordered the grilled portabello...More

We take out from tiny Mexicali Blue almost every week or at least twice a month; so we have eaten from here maybe 50-60 times so far. When our family is visiting, the younger crowd also likes to take out from Mexicali. More than anything...More

This tiny, healthy burrito and taco joint is not your standard Mexican faire. They use no canned products. Everything is incredibly fresh and they make all their own hot sauces. If you are looking for traditional Mexican, this is not it. We usually call ahead...More
