My wife and I had a very nice experience in Montclair.

I ate some short ribs and she had a shrimp enchilada. Both were exceptional.

They seem to be doing a good job.

I went into Mexicali Rose the other day and had a very enjoyable experience. The wait staff was very courteous and friendly. I ordered the Jose's tacos and was very satisfied. The portions are very large, and the value truely shows.

I would recommend Mexicali Rose to anyone looking to have a nice casual time with some friends or family in the beautiful downtown Montclair.

I've been ordering mostly delivery from Mexicali Rose for the last 6 months. The food is generally but not always good, and they often overcharge then skimp on the portions. I've ordered standard menu pork or beef dishes for about $16.00 and then gotten one or two skinny strips of meat with some rice and beans and a few chips!

And you won't do any better with the more expensive "special" dishes. For example, tonight I ordered "stuffed pork chops" with sides for $20 and ended up getting ONE medium sized pork chop stuffed with cheese and a few peppers (point is NOT with something expensive like lobster or seafood), with rice and beans for $20. Not what I would call even an average deal in this area. How much does one pork chop cost retail (not to mention wholesale)?

FYI, I actually called the restaurant once I received my delivery order to ask if I would have gotten more than one little measly pork chop had I dined in. The answer was "no but it IS stuffed". Yeah, with cheese and a few peppers, hardly justifies the price.

So if you're going to visit or order out from Mexicali Rose, make sure to ask EXACTLY what you're going to get for the money. My experience is they will rip you off if they can get away with it.

I have only eaten at Mexacali Rose once, and i hated it. The service was terrible and so was the food. Enough said.

Cons: everything

My lovely boyfriend and I frequent here often. Almost always we are seated promptly and served chips, dip and water right away. When the chips arrive, ask for the special "green sauce," its absolutely amazing with a spicier avocado kick. This is a BYOB wherein there's a liquor store right across the street. The specials are normally the same, so you can basically memorize the menu if you come here twice. Appetizer I love is the shrimp escondido, delicious shrimp served with 4 different types of cheeses, guac, and warm tortillas. The seafood is delicious, mango durango with everything on the side. If it is not on the side they will pile it on top and YOU WILL feel overwhelmed. We love this place, and if you will be having dinner late, it is a wonderful spot to go to for a b-day, with friends, or a hott date. The staff is absolutely terrific, from the hostess, to the mgr., to the service.

Wonderful atmosphere, wait staff was nice but the food was not satisfying in the least; what a shame since when you walk in you get the feeling that you are going to be served some authentic mexican food.

After a dispute over an order that was not delivered after 1-1/2 hours, in which I asked for a discount or other compensation for the food they confirmed would be delivered cold, I spoke with Mike - the manager on Thursday night. Mike launched into a tirade when I asked for the chees items that would certainly be ruined to be discounted. He insulted me and offered NOTHING, not even an apology, which the hostess has given me twice already admitting fault. I have 10 years experience in the restaurant industry and have never even heard of such aggressiveness. Had he offered me 10% or anything at all I would have been happy. His tone and abusive language led me to cancel the order entirely and hang up. HE CALLED ME RIGHT BACK AND SCREAMED "THANKS FOR THE FREE FOOD, FAGGOT!"
Do yourself and your family a favor and never set foot in or order from this place again. This is unacceptable behavior from any human being let alone a manager of a public establishment who was completely unprovoked. The Better Business Bureau has been notified...I only wish I could do more.

Cons: Unbelievably abusive manager insults customers rather than compensate for error

Mexicali Rose use to be one of my favorites restaurants but not anymore. Since they change owners is not the same, the food have change and to make it worse the manager is just a pain. I was sitting with my husband outside trying to have a great time and just to see the way the manager was treating the waitress (just ruing my night). After I have my dinner I try to talk to the manager and let him know that he had very good workers and that he should be more considerate with them and the answer that I got from him was (THey can leave I don't care). and after that he told me (Don't take the glass with you) like I'm going to still it. The owners better put that manager in the place or they will lose a lot of people.

We loved the ambience at Mexicali Rose and there's a lot to look at while you're waiting for your food. The menu is packed with a lot to choose from but it's WHAT you choose that can be hit or miss. My chicken breast, although covered with a delicious sauce, was very dry and the rice too salty. Waiter had to be summoned twice for us to receive the complimentary chip and salsa(they were delicious) and to wipe the table. My friend's fajitas were delicious. Not the best Tex Mex but not the worst I've ever had.

This has to be one of the best and well priced Mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at. Very good appetizers and a really nice selection of entrees. No alcohol served, but you can BYOB if you'd like. The atmosphere is very relaxed. I feel like I can go there with PJs and enjoy myself. The staff is also very friendly. A well recommended place to eat.

I am so dissapointed in this place since the original owner, Dominick sold it. The food quality has really gone downhill. The people are nice, but it's just not the same anymore.

This is an excellent Mexican restaurant located off of Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair. What makes myself return to this restaurant so often is the friendly staff, the atmosphere and the huge inexpensive plates. The prices are extremely good as are the servings. I have tried most of the menu and it is very good. Standard Mexican dishes are offered as well as unique dishes you will not find in most places.

PROS: Excellent vibe, price and staff
CONS: None

The restaurant itself has a very inviting atmosphere and doesn't serve alcohol. It's byob with a liquor store located conveniently across the street. On the night I went, the service was kind of slow and the food was very bland. Perhaps I just hit it on a bad night. I'll have to give it another try.

I tried Mexical Rose for the first time recently and it was great. The food was great and our waiter was very nice. They have a byob policy and do not sell alcohol, but they will mix drinks for you (our margaritas were delicious). I also loved the atmosphere, it was very relaxing and fun. My friends and I have a great time just hanging out, eating and drinking. The food was a little pricer than I expected but for the quality of the food, large portions, and service it was worth the price.

Rather good mexican food, and always served piping hot. The ambience is great, always something to look out. Service is great and the owner is almost always on hand to make sure you dining is a pleasure. Prices are moderate and menu is expense. Bring your own bottle. Wines and spirit store across the street. Once you try it you will always return. Bring your friends, and bring your family. Only draw back usually a wait, no reservations.
