Rave Reviews for Our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican Restaurant

It's no surprise that we believe Mexicali Blues is the best Mexican restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. You probably assume that we are a little biased, though. For that very reason, today we've gathered a few customer reviews from people that have dined with us recently. 

Their non-biased opinions are much more likely to convince you that the best Mexican food at the Lake of the Ozarks comes out of the kitchen at Mexicali Blues. (It will also be obvious that Tuesdays around here are especially popular!) 

"This is just a fun family place that we’ve been going to for years. In fact, our waitress from over 15 years ago remembered our family when we came back this spring. The prices are great. Tuesday’s are fun for cheap tacos. We bought the salsa to take back home. We love Mexican and there are only about 2 places we consistently go to. This is one of them. Great service."
