Good food; good service and awesome maragritas. Don't let the designated driver order a large margarita...they are very large.

Used to be the best Mexican on the Peninsula, I typically visited 4-6 times a month, after my last two visits, I'm on the hunt for a new Mexican restaurant. Average at best.

My wife and I are repeat customers and the service is always excellent. The food is great and portions don't leave you hungry. However it is the consistently great service that we most enjoy!

Great happy hour, great prices, and the salsa bar is amazing!! Only place in Williamsburg with one. The atmosphere is good for families, parties, couples, and has bright festive colors.

My wife and I usually go to another Mexican restaurant for dinner when in the mood. Last night we didn't feel like driving all the way to our "go-to" so stopped by Taco Mexicali. VERY polite and helpful staff, delicious food, quick service and reasonably priced. We'll be back!

You wouldn't expect really good Mexican food in a strip mall, but it's here at Taco Mexicali! The staff is friendly, well-groomed and efficient. The décor is colorful, with a definite Mexican flair. Check out the carved booths and chairs when you visit. The menu is extensive, the meals priced very reasonably, and food is wonderful. Try the Margaritas, they... More

The second best Mexican food in town, but that's not saying much since the other places are complete dumps. The food is quality, and the place is clean. We always enjoy our meal.
