This is a great little place to drop in for quick, fresh, tasty Mexican. Their street tacos are very reasonably priced and include ingredients you dont often see yum. They have other items, a la carte and combos, all of which are inexpensive. If you do request a substitution, such as one kind of beans for another, be sure to... More

Mexicali Express has been delivering high quality mexican fast food in Beaverton for so long, they should be recognized by the mayor for their longevity. The most important aspect of Mexicali is that they have been able to reproduce the same awesome taste since my first visit (1996). Oddly enough, they still employ the same people. Yes, Estella is gone,... More

Mexicali has been a favorite lunch place of mine for many years. It's locally owned with the food cooked on site, making it different from the chain Mexican fast food places. In particular, the salsa bar is far superior to any packaged product. In addition to a tasty array of salsas, fresh minced jalapeno, cilantro and onion are also offered.... More

I've been going here for years. It's not a chain and the food is decent. They use real cheese. I've had the crispy beef tacos, beefy burrito, nacho suprema with beef and the soft steak and chicken tacos. The only thing that would make this place perfect is if they served Coca-Cola instead of Pepsi. But other than that -... More

They serve breakfast burritos during the week and a full breakfast on the weekend. My husband had an omelet with potatoes and toast and I had the chilaquiles with black beans, rice and an egg. Both were GREAT. The portions are large - I had to bring half of mine home. There were lots of families there for Saturday breakfast... More

This is a small fast food operation. The street taco's are to die for. A must go, even for drive thru

Oh, Mexicali Express - my family loves you so much! Probably because they used to eat there while in high school and it provides a ton of memories for them. I've always found the food to be consistent but not outstanding. Their fresh salsa bar is definately worth going inside for.
