Mexicali Cantina Restaurant Review

: This longtime casual Frederick eatery offers a cheery mix of Tex-Mex fare at family-friendly prices. Dig into standards like nacho platters, burritos, tacos, quesadillas and chiles rellenos. You would do well to include an order of the special guacamole and a bowl of tortilla soup. For something a little less spicy, check out the seafood chimichanga or the salmon salad. Lunch and dinner menus are quite similar. Among the six desserts, we recommend the tres leches cake.
