I live for the 'crack sauce'. Be sure to put it on everything. The lunch taco special and brunch menu items make this a go to favorite during the day. The mushroom quesadilla is a beautiful thing. Great food. Great options. Mexican done right!

I think these "less that stellar" reviews are hilarious.
This place consistently rips (period). I'm from California and I Know Mexican food, and set a very high bar. Brooklyn has been a desert for quality mex cusine for years (Chinese tacos anyone?) and you guys (and gals!) are veritable public servants - I salute you!
.....also, I recommend the Carne Asada Burrito and Union Street Salad.

I simply wasn't impressed with Calexico, despite everyone raving about its truck locations for ages.

The guacamole was too limey for my taste (a first) though the chips were absolutely perfect (mostly because I love salt and there was plenty). I wasn't impressed with my carnitas burrito bowl at all, the flavors just seemed off to me but I enjoyed the pollo asada quesadilla wrap that my dining partner ordered. I would maybe give it another shot because service is friendly and jovial when joking about ordering drinks (they're waiting on their liquor license), bathrooms are clean and they are quick to smile as they walk by.

After living in San Francisco for many years and traveling throughout LA and the rest of the state for work over the years, I am a huge fan of authentic CA-style Mexican food. Like most Mexican sit-down restaurants in NYC, Calexico is slicker than the divey taquerias I love in CA but the food definitely hits the spot. I find myself craving it about once a week and am so happy it came to the neighborhood after going out of my way to visit the truck in Manhattan. Only complaint is the feeling that they are a little out of sync with neighborhood. Park Slope is teeming with young families and particularly during the quiet weekdays, the "free stroller parking**not responsible for lost or stolen property" sign on the sidewalk chafes a bit. I've actually been offered a table in the back where I can use the stroller since my infant son is still a little wobbly for a highchair, which is greatly appreciated. But I would prefer to feel 100% welcome to come in with my stroller and have it safely stored or roll it up to an out of the way table if he's sleeping, etc.

Mexican mavens "all abuzz" over these "rough-and-ready" street-cart spin-offs call out their "outstanding", "Cali-inspired" tacos, tortas and burritos; "fabulous prices" and "fast service" offset the "simple" "hole-in-the-wall" settings; P.S. "make sure to get the ‘crack' sauce on anything you order."
