If you like good Mexican hole-in-the wall, strip-mall, neighborhood restaurants that serve outstanding food, you owe yourself a visit to Mexicali. Our part of five had beef fajitas, chicken fajitas, chicken tacos and poblano with beef. High marks all-around. Server committed the cardinal sin of not keeping our chips basket full at all times. That is a major no-no, and... More

This is a very good value tex mex style restaurant. Long overdue for some cosmetic renovations the food is consistently very good and cheap. Lunch specials around 5.00 a plate. Not the most personable wait staff but they do a very good job. This is located in the corner of the shopping center next to Lowes. Signage is very faded.

If you are looking for the real deal when it comes to Texmex done right look no further. With 100 year old family recipes that were the owners Grandmothers the food is second to none. The interior is like stepping into a Mexican cafe in a run down section in Mexico but the food and drinks and the ticket price... More

Have been eating here for years. Surprised it's not on Trip Advisor already. Food always great value and great Happy Hour, also. Don't be put off that it is not glamorous looking or super modern. You won't be disappointed.

I figured he was coming from the cowboy bar in the strip center. the location is awful but the food is great. Service... More

Dont be put off by the appearance of the strip mall. You don't want to miss this local gem. We went here for lunch today and the chips and salsa blew me away...so fresh and amazing! I ordered sour cream chicken enchiladas and they were delicious. My husband had combo fajitas and those were terrific too. Incredible value, the food... More

Great Mexican (Tex-Mex) food at very reasonable prices. I am always happy to find a little individual place like this. I have been here twice and impressed with the food both times. Bottom line, a great value.
