“YUM!!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We come here every time we're in town for the shrimp tacos. The salsa is one of my favorites. They have a tasty Tie-dye margarita! Definitely stop here! Not a fan of their rice, but you can get the tacos ala carte.

“Great Food, Drinks, and Chips w/ Salsa”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We found Mexicali Blues on our first trip to Lake of The Ozarks and make a point to eat here at least once during our vacation and stock up on their delicious salsa which you can buy at the local HyVee.

It's a friendly atmosphere with great service and always clean. The prices have gone up a bit, but where haven't prices gone up?! Still worth every penny and we've never had bad service or a bad dish.

Our favorite adult drink here is the "Tye Dye" ... Delicious!

“Good”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Food is pretty good for Mexican style food. Chips and salsa to get started are enough so no need to pay for appetizer unless u get the cheese dip which is really good. I wish they wouldn't have covered my entree with sauce is my only real complaint. Other then that it was nice.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My wife and I ate here based on review. It was very good. We had a mango margarita. And ordered the fun dido quest dip. It was stringing and tasted very goo without being greasy. The carnita tacos were moist and tasty. The black beans that came with it were the best black beans I have every ate. The steak and chicken fajitas were good with plenty of fixings to put on them. The waitress was attentive and very nice. Wish we weren't leaving the next day so we could eat here agai.
