Mexicali Chicken & Salads
Ranked #66 of 105 Restaurants in El Centro
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

This place is sister restaurant to a few other restaurants in El Centro (Jalisco and Mexicali Tacos). They offer a variety of different dishes to eat. If you 'dine in', they offer a fresh salsa bar to take advantage of.

I personally enjoy their flautas, rolled tacos, carne asada burritos, beef and chicken tacos. They also serve real good rice and beans. Prices range from low to high, depending on what you're getting. Also available are family meals.

***Fun Fact: Take a close look at the building. You will notice that it took over a "Popeye's Chicken" location. The building and sign still represent that companies cosmetic look.

While shopping in EL Centro over the weekend we decided to try this restaurant. We noticed right off the bat the drive trhu was packed and then walked and so was the dining room.So we had some expectation anxiety.
Upon being greeted by staff they were friendly and courteous.Upon recieving our food was hot and very tasty
i had a combo plate my girlfriend had the menudo and our kid had the corn dog bites. Watching around while eating everyone seemed to be enjoying their food and the possible owner asking everyone how everything was tasting. In conclusion we will be returning on our next visit to try the rest of the menu!!!!!!!

It was nearly closing time and we hadn’t had dinner. We had a two hour drive home and needed to eat. When we pulled into the parking lot next to Mexicali intending to go next door to Del Taco but decided to take a chance on the unknown instead.
My wife ordered the Greek Chicken Salad ($7.49) which came with home made Italian dressing. She said it was the best Italian dressing she had ever tasted. My carne asada burrito ($5.79) was filled only with carne asada, guacamole and nothing else. It was nice to see no fillers such as lettuce, rice or beans. The flavor was fantastic.
The service was excellent and very friendly. The staff were eager to please and answered our questions without hesitation. Upon our departure, my wife complimented the flavor of the dressing and the manager gave her a free container of it to take home.
