I'm not a vegetarian but I typically don't eat much meat or poultry, and this is a place with lots of vegetarian options! Tofu etc.. but on this occasion I got an "old Monterrey" burrito with chicken, rice, beans, cheese, and guac. It was delicious as always but for me it had too much chicken so I'd probably stick to...

They do what they do very well. I tried the el Dorado and the Old Monterey burritos. Both were delicious and the staff was very friendly.

The burritos were large and satisfying but expensive. And they weren't the best I've had because it was mainly rice and beans with a little meat and no tomatoes, lettuce or corn to liven the taste up.

My most favorite thing though is the chips and salsa bar! It gets very busy though so definitely leave yourself enough time to stand in line

Used to live in Allentown my husband and I love this place, we have since moved and always make plans to stop here. They usually do a specialty salsa I find that really cool had a pineapple salsa and a blueberry salsa that were awesome.

My husband and I regularly get burritos here. My favorite is the Monterey; an overstuffed tortilla with delicious grilled chicken, avocado, beans, cheese and rice. My husband gets the big Sur, filled with beef, beans, rice and cheese ( and a great sauce). They are in the process of moving close to Hamilton Blvd and closer to us..yay!

If you like meals rolled up in a wrapper, do not miss this restaurant! Cali Burrito will not disappoint for their selection, fresh ingredients, and general hunger-satisfaction. Be sure to take advantage of the fresh salsa options to accompany your burrito/taco/chips/ etc.

No matter what you order, burritos, burrito bowls, or tacos, you'll always have a great meal! I always try the salsa of the week too. There is often a line out the door, but it moves quickly and you can call ahead to order. Cali Burrito will not let you down.

Description
At Cali Burrito we aim to provide the healthiest, best tasting food possible in a minimum amount of time. Founders Shawn and Nick wanted to bring the Cali vibe to the Lehigh Valley after living in California for 10 years. The idea for the restaurant was born out of numerous surf trips up and down the California coast. So sit back, enjoy a burrito and feel that mellow Cali vibe. Our food is fresh, our flavor bold. Just let us know if you want some heat! We use locally made organic tofu from Fresh Tofu, Inc., environmentally friendly sugar cane plates and 'plasticware', 0 gm. transfat vegetable frying oil, local organic produce in season and organic coffee. We don't use lard or MSG. Feel Free to B.Y.O.B
