“Calexico Delivers a Great Casual Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Visited this establishment with friends and decided to create our own tasting event off the menu! You need to check this place out for yourself but this is definetely the best Mexican I have had in a long time. I urge you all to try the "Carne Fries", don't worry about the calories just do it and enjoy them! The tacos & rolled quesadillas will not dissapointt! The menu also has buritos, salads, and sandwiches. The staff was really polite and on-point the entire time and it was busy! The only let down was that their inventory control for the draught beer tower. They offer 6 draughts and 4 were sold out when we visited. What is that all about? We really wanted to try their "El Barrio" which is produced by Sixpoint for them exclusively. Since the experience was so great, I will be returning soon to try more. Cheers!

“Best nachos ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This place had the best nachos I have ever had! We also got the tofu taco and I think a black bean taco. So delicious. Our friends got brunch and they seemed to really enjoy it as well. I had a delicious mimosa and my friends tried their other brunch cocktails. Good all around. They were super quick with seating everyone even though it was a Sat afternoon and very busy. Great service, staff, and food!

“Better than the Soho location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Don't want to wait an hour for a taco? Me neither. Come here instead of the original Calexico truck. No wait! You can sit! There's wait service! Same crack sauce!
