Mexicali Rose is a great place to grab a burrito or taco for a quick dinner. The freshly made salsa and homemade tortilla chips are outrageously delicious!

Vegetarian black bean burrito is super, pepitos on top, fresh made salsa and corn chips... nothing comes from a can or a jar. 15 years of dining here and every meal a winner.

A definite must for real Mexican food. No ambiance, but seating available. The food is really good here and the staff very friendly.

First, this is Mexicali Rose, Newton (Rt 25), not the Bethel Stony Hill location (yes there's a difference!). The food is freshly made to order, the family all works together front and back. Pablano pepper is a specialty. It's a fairly small menu, but all...More
