  • Famous for its vampiros and considered by many the purveyor of the best taco in Los Angeles, Mexicali is also featured at the first annual LA Weekly Tacolandia!
  • Chicken vampiro FTW!
  • Do NOT overlook the Gueros. They're SUCH a tasty side (and cheap!) And while I'm at, get the classic 1st+Beaudry combo of the Vampiros w/ Chipotle+Garlic sauce inside "yummmmmeeers!"
  • Try everything, you can't go wrong and don't forget the salsa bar and an agua fresca!
  • Open the vampiro up at the salsa bar, and load up!
  • Great shrimp tacos!!
  • Great Food!!! Cash only! Big vehicles park on street. You have to go here. Menu is small but the taste is AMAZING! Great Prices and the people who work there are extremely helpful and courteous.
  • This restaurant is known for a few things: excellent flame-grilled carne asada; thin, chewy flour tortillas, and something called the Vampiro, which combines both into one unholy and glorious mess.
  • Here its the salsa de rajas that sets the nachos apart from the pack, incorporating seasoned roasted chile poblano, roasted Roma tomatoes, fresh onion and a killer vinegar mixture.
  • Beans come with eat in orders, but for to go you gotta ask for them, do don't forget - if you want their delicious beans, that is.
  • Try the Vampiros, garlic-sauce-laced quesadillas filled with your choice of meat:
  • Watch out for the streetsweeper on Friday. $68 plate of tacos!
  • The Shrimp Tacos are terrific!
  • Vampiro Combo:Vampiro (quesadilla w/ garlic sauce+choice of meat), Taco (choice of meat) & Choice of Soda or Water. Got mine's with a Guero (Starry Kitchen's + cute cashier's suggestion)*her fave*
  • The Guero is for those of you who like it "Spicy". Not much of a spicy food eater these days but, was still delish. Took out the seeds & it was still Killer! (Starry Kitchen's Recommend!)
  • A far cry from their former parking lot grill days, the Mexicali Taco Co. team now owns real estate just outside of Chinatown, and serves up their smoky carne asada & Mexico-delivered tortillas daily.
  • We're back for tacoooos!!)))
  • Wonderful tacos!! We've tried chicken quesadilla, chicken and shrimp tacos and I felt in love with each of it! Definitely worth to be visited :)
  • Vampiro combo. Upgrade to shrimp taco for extra $1
  • "A vampiro, a taco, and a drink."
