We routinely travel from Worcester to dine at the Mexicali Grille. We haven't been anywhere else for this type of food since we've discovered it. My only criticism is with the menus...and it's a very small issue. They have beautiful photos of the dishes, but the written list does not tell us which one is pictured. As I said, small matter.

The food comes on large, heated, colorful plates. It tastes as good as it looks.

We stopped in to the Mexicali Grill last night for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We were immediately greeted and shown to a table. The restaurant is not large,maybe 25 table, about 1/2 were filled. Festive music played in the background. Our server, Carlos, was prompt, friendly and helpful. We were served a basket of chips and what seemed to be homemade salsa - very yummy! The menu was usual for a mexican grill restaurant, with plenty to chose from. Food was served promptly, and attention to our needs was good. Large portions allowed for a follow-up leftover lunch today. I'll visit again!

Yet again another superb lunch, visit when I am over to US and have tried various options and have always had fantastic food.
For us Brits you have to be aventurous and try different things that we wouldnt get back home.
Portions are huge and its always a struggle to finish.
Staff as always were friendly and helpfull.

Friendly service, great food-very authentic, just like I grew up with traveling to Ensenada. We have visited twice so far. Our server at our first visit even introduced us to a new Mexican beer that we hadn't tried before (beer tasting:)-quite fun.

We went to dinner there right around 5 p.m. on a Saturday. There were only a few people there, but by the time we left, there was a line to wait for a table. The service was good, but a little overly friendly. Our meals came from the kitchen in about ten minutes and were piping hot. The portions were very large. Although the prices were about a dollar or two higher more per plate than I was expecting, we definitely got our monies worth. Overall, this was a very good experience and I would not hesitate to go there again or recommend it.
