We only had a few minutes before our reservations for the Comedy Zone and wanted to grad a quick bite. The service was great, the server had the drinks right away and took the order promptly. The 2 items we ordered came out quickly and the burrito was hot and contained all the correct ingredients. I ordered the Fajita fries... More

Went here because we love Mexican, and we were there for a show so it was very convenient. As stated in several other reviews I read both here and on Yelp, the service left everything to be desired. The food was really pretty good, but if your in a hurry don't come here. Place was slow, 3/4 of the pace... More

My girls and I came to Charlotte to hang out for the weekend. Great food and very authentic. It was hard to believe that tacos were

Had lunch there with a buddy today. Beautiful weather so we sat outside. On Thursdays they offer burrito bowl specials. I had the Southwest chicken bowl. Really excellent. And reasonably priced. I'll go back.

So we went there because we purchased a groupon, but we will go back many times and pay full price. The food was excellent and we know good Mexican food. We were there on a relatively slow evening, but our server was outstanding. Thanks for the good food and for starting our evening off perfectly.

While visiting Uptown Amphitheater for a Rob Thomas concert we decided to stop in for a bite to eat...very glad that we did. Had the Ahi Tuna taco and the carne asada tacos. Outstanding although I preferred the carne asada. Polite staff and the draft IPA was great. Will visit again if in the area.

I had read some average to not good reviews and so my expectations were not high on this place. I went on an uncrowded Friday night and sat outside with friend before heading to concert at Filmore. We both had three of the soft tacos of various kinds, and thought they were all pretty good and I would order them... More

My wife and I tried Texicali for lunch today and we were very pleased. The food was excellent, very well prepapred and presented. The Queso Fundido app was delicious, as were the tacos and Brisket and Cheese Enchiladas. We really enjoyed the setting in the NC Music Factory. This was our first visit, but I'm sure it won't be our... More

Texicali is a super cool bar and restaurant located at the "comedy zone" at the music factory entertainment venue. If you can overlook the spooky skull decor, you will find that the food, beverages, and service are fantastic. A notch above your typical bar food, we enjoyed some basic American plates. Next, the margaritas had some good variety and were... More

Ran by here while waiting for a concert to start. It was pretty good. The service was great and quick. The lack of reasonable air conditioning really sucked in the 100+ degree weather though. That alone would make me rethink going there again anytime during the hot months. The food was good and the beers were cold, though!

Thank Steph S
