We went to this place to try something new. The food was good, but the service wasn't so great. It was during the lunch to dinner change and the staff seemed distracted. There were some bugs flying around the restaurant and we were forced to swat them away from our food several times. The food itself was OK. The table... More

Third visit and have never been disappointed. Authentic Mexican dishes and courteous wait staff. We have always visited midweek and found the dining area fairly empty. Ordered a dinner each on our first visit. Finished most of mine (barely) and wife had plenty of leftovers. On our most recent visit we split two appetizers, skipped the dinner menu and found...

Don't expect fancy decor, just great food. Taking the waiter's recommendation for the shrimp and chicken combo was the right choice. Delicious! Pollo con Mole was good too. House margaritas were a good starter. Flan for dessert perhaps a bit too grainy.

Went on a Sunday night and service was very slow even though the place was not busy at all -- maybe 6 tables and 2 wait staff. I asked for my margarita to have lime juice instead of "house mix" because I really don't like mix, and was told the bartender was too busy and couldn't make time for that.... More

Food was very good. Kids menu offered tacos and burritos. For dinner, I had the flank steak asada with plantains and enchilada...very tasty. My husband had 3 tacos ... fish, shrimp, and beef. All good. Live music entertainment but could be a bit loud if you are trying to have s conversation. Only thing was - the tables were really... More

mexicali rose is a very good mexican restaurant, however, it wasn't perfect. their menu is somewhat limited, the decor is tired, and the waiter completely disinterested. he tried to ignore me and watch soccer as much as possible. my camarones alla diablo guajillo was mouthwatering, but the portion was dissapointingly small, compared to other nearby mexican places. a good choice,...

Mexicali Rose is a very good Mexican Restaurant! The bartenders and waiters are attentive, pleasant, and provide excellent service. The guacamole appetizer (where it is not made table side) is awesome- generous and creamy! Chips are good and not too oily! Salsa is great! Entrees very generous! Pollo a Mole Pablano is very good! Puerco dish is a more of... More

My daughter and I stopped for lunch. This place is located in a small strip mall. It's cute and very casual inside- seems like a good place for families with kids. My quesadilla was tasty but presentation could have been improved upon. Overall we had a quick and decent lunch. Prices were inexpensive. We'd return if the area but wouldn't... More
