Found Cali and while my vegan burrito was good, it didn't really knock my socks off as others have claimed. And yes, the chairs are more for lounging than ability to sit upright and eat.

Absolutely love the food here - it's so fresh and flavorful. A cali burrito is comfort food to me and the chips and salsas are always good. The new location is definitely an improvement on roominess, but the chairs aren't comfortable as you feel sort of reclined or something and have to lean forward. That aside, we will continue to...

Visited Cali Burrito several times. Great food, friendly employees and the best fish taco's. Clean place with quick service. Variety of both meat and vegan.

Been to Cali Burrito a bunch of times. Delicious options. Can also ask for a burrito bowl without the tortilla. A great lower cal option. So good!

Been there once. It was good but not worth the raves it gets by many. Very sterile atmosphere but don't take that literally (if you know what I mean).

This place never disappoints! Often times there is a line, but it's well worth the wait! Their new location has helped some with the demand, but it still gets crowded.

The main thing I like about Cali burrito is that you can taste the freshness in their food. I go for the classic Old Monterey burrito. The chicken tastes like real grilled chicken and the guac is flavorful. The best are the really crispy deep fried chips. Service is fast and the new place provides a lot more space, however... More

By far...the BEST burrito joint in town...family friendly and great atmosphere. Growing up in southern California, I have had some great burritos in my lifetime... When I moved here I started my search for some great Mexican food and was disappointed several times until I accidentally stumbled upon Cali Burrito...Now, in their new location, it's even better...I can't wait for...

They have just moved into a larger space - just behind the original restaurant. In the past, we would sometimes not be able to get in - the new place is much larger. The food is still wonderful. I like that you can get your burrito in a bowl without the shell, making it easier to eat. I love the... More

At Cali Burrito we aim to provide the healthiest, best tasting food possible in a minimum amount of time. Founders Shawn and Nick wanted to bring the Cali vibe to the Lehigh Valley after living in California for 10 years. The idea for the restaurant was born out of numerous surf trips up and down the California coast. So sit back, enjoy a burrito and feel that mellow Cali vibe. Our food is fresh, our flavor bold. Just let us know if you want some heat! We use locally made organic tofu from Fresh Tofu, Inc., environmentally friendly sugar cane plates and 'plasticware', 0 gm. transfat vegetable frying oil, local organic produce in season and organic coffee. We don't use lard or MSG. Feel Free to B.Y.O.B
