Mexicali Blues Inc

★★★★☆
Come for the birdbath-size margaritas and the jolly atmosphere, not for great Mexican Salvadoran dishes.

Upon first entering this brightly colored bar/restaurant you will immediately be taken back by all of the Mexican decor and fun/festive vibe. The Mexican restaurant reminds me more of something you would find in Cancun on your spring break vacation but without having to leave the DMV or breaking your budget you an enjoy some great Mexican food and drinks right in Northern Virginia.

Just a block from the Clarendon metro Mexicali Blues offers great margaritas, excellent quesidillas, and amazing queso. Mexicali Blues is a great place to spend Cinco de Mayo or right after work for happy hour.

Mexicali Blues has good Mexican food for a very reasonable price. Outdoor seating is nice in the spring and summer. A great place to enjoy a margarita outside in Clarendon.

Mexicali Blues has made a name for itself - for their Margaritas, that is. However, if you're looking for decent mexican food, I would stock up on the tequila before ordering dinner. Their food is definitely not the best in the area. But if you're looking for a great drink and a good atmosphere, you might want to give it a try.

As soon as I walked into this small, unassuming restaurant, I was absorbed by the brightly colored walls of red, green, and yellow. Is this what Mexico looks like? Well, no matter, I sat down and enjoyed my over-stuffed burrito. This is my new favorite spot for a quick, cheap dinner. The menu is small, but sufficient. The Mexican/Salvadoran food is authentic and delicious. If you stop by, be sure to try their Watermelon Margarita. Yum! And if you are underage, no worries, just order one of their fantastic non-alcoholic daiquiris. Now Clarendon has the Blues.

PROS: Cheap Eats, Watermelon Margaritas!!
CONS: Gets very crowded.

Editorial from

Mexicali is an after-work drop-in place that's easy on the budget. Crowds seem to love the zany bright decor as much as the restaurant's Mexican-Salvadoran cooking. You'll recognize the enchiladas, nachos and tacos as Mexican, but there…

 

Wait, you're the expert.
