Did You Know...
We enjoy searching out the origin stories of some of the foods we proudly serve. The history of the burrito is a bit hazy, but we've pulled together some information about this tasty treat that we believe you will find very interesting. You can impress your fellow diners with this knowledge the next time you eat together at Mexicali Blues!

An old piece of folk history claims that Juan Mendez used a donkey to transport himself and the tacos that he sold at a street stand in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Ciudad Juarez during the Mexican Revolution. He would keep the food warm by wrapping it in large homemade flour tortillas placed under a small tablecloth. People began looking forward to his "food of the burrito" (or "food of the donkey," since burrito means little donkey in Spanish) and after a while, they simply started referring to his food as burritos for short. 

Going all the way back to 10,000 B.C., Mesoamerican peoples in Mexico wrapped foods in corn tortillas with fillings like chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados. Pueblo peoples in the Southwestern U.S. were also known to fill tortillas with beans and meat sauce a long time ago. These resemble the delicious burrito that we know and love today, but their versions are considered to be more like our modern-day taco instead.


With so many burrito combinations to choose from, not to mention the rest of the fantastic food options throughout the rest of the menu at Mexicali Blues, it's going to take you a few trips to try them all. We don't mind though, because we love serving our wonderful customers every chance that we get. Whether you find yourself craving a burrito, tacos, chips and salsa, or one of our famous margaritas, get on over here soon and satisfy those cravings!
