everything is great,you will enjoy a variety of options. Ceviche and the tamales de elote are excellent. when the dessert time come, you have to try flan, is a great way to finish the culinary experience

The plates were cold and tasted old, he just laughed. A perfect example of a restaurant that allows service and customer kindness go to the way side. Be ware and expect to be... More

The atmosphere is phenomenal. When my wife and I took our kids there was a Mariachi band playing!!! The food was excellent and far above the standards of the other "mexican" restaurants in Frederick. Definitely a must go place to visit for Mexican food. and a couple cervesas.

We visited Mexicali Cantina today for my oldest son's birthday. We had a party of 6, four adults and two very energetic kids. We were seated immediately. Our drink order was taken quickly and minutes later we were being offered fresh tableside guacamole ($11). Guac with a twist of added mango and corn was offered, but we opted for the... More

Stopped in after a trip to DC- glad we found this place! Everything was delicious! We had table side guacamole and it was fun to watch them make it and yummy! Staff was super friendly and attentive. It was also Valentine's Day and they gave me a rose and the rest of the table chocolate covered strawberries! How sweet!
