What's For Lunch? How About One of These...

Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach has a menu full of delicious dishes for you to enjoy every Tuesday-Saturday. Our full menu of the best Mexican food at the Lake of the Ozarks is available beginning at 11:30 am daily, but today we're highlighting a few of the dishes that are great for a lunch break. 

Mexicali Blues is always a wonderful way to end your day on a high note with an amazing dinner. Joining us for lunch means you get a happy (and tasty) boost of energy to help you over the hump of a busy day! 

These savory selections are all "wrapped" up nicely for a handheld treat. We take a chipotle tortilla and fill it with your choice of chicken, pork, or beef with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro ranch. It's served with a side of rice or fries. You may also upgrade your meat to include either fajita chicken, fajita steak, or fajita shrimp.

5 Tequila Myths - Debunked!

Tequila is very important to us here at Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach. After all, it is the main ingredient in the best margaritas at the Lake of the Ozarks

We keep an extensive variety of tasty tequilas behind the bar. Most people assume that all tequilas are pretty much the same, but each one is slightly different than the next. There are actually a lot of facts about tequila that true connoisseurs know to be false. Today's blog is here to educate you by debunking a few of those tequila myths.
