Calexico is the best for quick, no-frills Mexican. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like it there. The chips and guacamole are not to be missed – I often get it to go for parties because it’s just that good. My personal favorite is the quesadillas. They are rolled to be more like burritos then traditional flat quesadillas and have awesome ingredients like chicken, pork or steak. They also have frozen margaritas and other fun flavors like jalapeno mint. The space is casual and has a back patio area that is great for mid-sized groups during the summer. When there is a wait, just grab a spot at the bar and order from the full menu there.
