The meal was actually pretty bland considering how much fancy sounding stuff they put on my taco. Who wants to pay $7 for a single taco they could make better at home? No one. Very disappointed in this place.

We were a party of 12 for my nieces birthday. We had margaritas,ice teas and water. We ordered nachos and We each had a burrito, I especially like the chicken lime. Our waitress was great! We had no problems with getting our food. They even let us bring an ice cream cake to celebrate and kept it in the cooler... More

We went to Mexicali Blue on Saturday. We had the Mahi Mahi tacos. They were very tasty! I also had the Coconut butternut squash soup. I really enjoyed it! I wish the tacos were a little bit bigger. Overall the place is very clean and the serve was very good. I will go back to this restaurant.

Mexicali Blue is more like a glorified Mexican diner. Food is "ok" but atmosphere is less than appealing. If you want Mexican food there are far better choices within a few miles, drive the extra distance and go to Avocados or Maya Cafe....

We waited we waited we waited nobody even recognize the fact we were there even though the guy told to sit down. It's like customers are inconvenient for them...walked out will never go back...

This is the freshest Mexican food in Dutchess county! I've never had a bad meal here, the owner is very personable and the servers are great!

I've passed the place several times, it was around lunch time so I thought I'd give them a try. It's Baja California style Mexican food. Blue corn tortillas, Fish tacos, a variety of antojitos, guacamole, a large selection of piquant sauces to add some heat, a selection of soups, bean, chicken, etc. I had a grilled chicken and a shrimp...

The dining area is a bit tight but for tacos and beer it beats many of the Mexican food places in the area. They have interesting Beer flights also. The only idea I found disturbing was one of their employees was wandering around shoving MacDonald's French fry's in her mouth. Still very good even with that entertainment.

Are there last night with the family, everything was fresh and delicious. The salsa and chips were awesome, and the waitress unexpectedly gave us 4 little samples of the soups they offer. All four of the soups were delicious, we couldn't decide which we liked best, but I do remember the one with shredded chicken was a possible front runner.... More
