I would have never thought I liked "fish tacos" of any kind until I went to Mexicali Blues and had their lobster tacos. They are the best! It's the only thing I order every time I go there plus the margaritas of course! Do yourself a favor and get the lobster tacos!!

We ate here today and had great food. l love seafood and the seafood enchiladas were amazing. My husbands fajitas were also great. If you go there ask for the chili con queso with added ground beef. It's fantastic

My wife and I come here twice a week. We always dine there on taco Tuesday and then one other day each week. The food and service are superb. They use real cheddar cheese rather than white cheese or an imitation cream sauce. I especially like their fajitas. Most people are not going to be able to eat their generous... More

I've yet to find a place that does Taco Tuesday better than Mexicali Blues. There are a flood of Mexican restaurants around, and nothing compares for tacos! I only wish I lived a bit closer so that I could be there every Tuesday! The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed and family oriented.

My sister and I always look for new places to eat when we go out and about and this restaurant is one of the best we have ever tried! The salsa was the perfect amount of spicy and the Mexicali Fireballs were absolutely amazing!! I highly recommend this if you want a relaxed but great place to eat.

I am really picky about my margaritas and do not like those made from a mix. Well, go to Mexicali Blues and you will get a margarita that is hand squeezed--and the price won't hurt either. The menu is varied so everyone will be satisfied by the choices. There are more authentic Mexican places at the lake, but for variety,... More

This is the only restaurant we were not impressed with. The food did not have a lot of flavor to it. The guacamole is very bland-basically avocados and onions. I ordered the mexican pizza which was entirely too large of a portion. The same for my daughter who ordered the bean burrito. Both items take up the entire plate. Not... More

We discovered this place 3 years ago while on vacation and have made it one of our "have to go" places every time we visit. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is authentically decorated Mexican restaurant with a good atmosphere. Don't expect an upscale restaurant. It is comfortable and casual. The food has always been... More

Great place for some good Mexican food. Right on Hwy 54 South of Osage Beach, between Osage Beach and Camdenton. Friendly owners and staff. Their margarita's are to die for! They have a special "Taco Tuesday" when they sell their taco's for $1.00 each. I would recommend it to anyone that likes Mexican food and good atmosphere.
