Dallas Observer's Description

The adjacent dive bar Lonestar Café & Club is a portent of things to come. Mexicali is a no-frills WYSIWYG joint. Patrons will find frozen margaritas for less than $2 and a wide selection of hefty platters-chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas and fajitas-with the usual sides, all arrayed without pretense (read: stacked high and crowded). Chef Eloy's queso flameado is a crowd favorite at the busy, family-owned and operated Mexicali.

    This place has won me over! First visit I think I just was not in the mood for Mexican food. Second and third time I went, I was amazed. Portions and pricing are amazing, and with the amount of people that are there, consitantly I don't think you could be disappointed.

    Nothing beats the original location. A hole in the wall for sure, but it's the best TexMex in town! Chicken Chimichanga...nom, nom, nom!

    Order the tortilla soup - it is the best I have found! Order the cup unless you are really hungry
