We stopped here on the recomendation of our AirBNB host and we're so happy we did! Mexicali Blue offers fresh, flavorful dishes - it is truly a gem. Fresh ingredients are key, especially when offering Ahi Tuna and Swordfish - 2 items we tried and loved. Food is made to order. Menu is inventive and diverse, with plenty of veggie... More

Fresh, fresh, fresh! And nice, helpful staff that cook up great food quickly. Anthony Bourdain could have stopped at any restaurant in New Paltz on his way to Mohonk, but he went here for good reason! There is an excellent array of sauces at a "bar" next to the register that can add to the flavor of your meal. They... More

But this place is great for take-out. The tacos are really good and burritos were excellent. Plan for a bit of time if you wait though since they are usually busy so the food comes out at a more leisurely pace.

Started with the tortilla soup which was outstanding! Then a pork burrito which was excellent as well. So glad we stopped here!

We often call in an order and pick it up from here. My bf pretty much always gets the mango catfish tacos. The other tacos are good, but not as bold of seasoning as I might choose. Decent guac, good service, and tasty hot sauces.

The food was good. Ordered grill salmon on taco, it was very tasty and healthy at the same time! Also ordered chicken quesadilla.. They were ok.. The good part is they had no fryers so everything was healthy. On the downside, it is a small place so sitting is limited.

The Mexicali Blue Restaurant is in a strip mall at a busy intersection on Rt 9 in Wappingers Falls. It has great food - fresh, tasty, delicious. There are not a lot of tables, but there is a bar that could accommodate additional patrons. They serve beer so local that it is literally made next door at the North River... More

This place is teeny, its pretty much a take out joint- a few seats to be had in and on the sidewalk. Chips and salsa or guacamole were pricy $6-$8 for a basket. They did have vegan gluten free choices - naked burritos and tacos. Food was ok, no out of this world- perhaps the meaty dishes are more tasty-... More
