I give Mexicali's 4 stars because I have had great experiences there for lunch. It is rare in that it is downtown and has lots of parking space, making it easy to get in and out of for lunch hour. The service is intentionally speedy as well during this time. Chips and salsa is fine, and I like that each... More

The food would have earned a 4 star review but the service was horrible. I understand when you have a large group that patience is required. But when you see the large party that came in after you get seated, patience goes out the window! Especially when the manager proceeds to tell you that he has done this for 20... More

The food was great, service was good and really good margaritas. The atmosphere was nothing special, but for a casual dinner it was just fine.

I hadn't been here in years and many of my coworkers don't like it for one reason or another. I wanted to check it out again and develop my own opinion. The service was quick and friendly. The queso was very good and the enchiladas I ordered were okay. Not my favorite, but I will eat here again when I'm... More

I was in Tulsa for training. The Mexicali was close so a bunch of us walked over. Very few had anything good to say about the food. My food was Luke warm at best. If this is typical Mexican food in Tulsa I don't think I'll be eating anymore anytime soon. On the positive side. They did have a good... More

The food,service, location and always available parking in the Tate Brady district is always as expected 👍. STACKED enchiladas are always spot on. Tex mex portions of flavor for my patronage over the past 25 years. Good place to meet old friends and eat drink & be merry.

I have eaten hear before and everything has always been fine. Today, I tried the salad on the lunch menu and was really impressed. The prompt seating and exceptional service by Caleb made a good experience great.
