Awesome Appetizers - A Great Way To Start Your Meal!

Every meal at our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant begins with a bowl of freshly made, crisp tortilla chips and our famous house-recipe salsa. For some, that may be enough to keep their appetites satisfied until the main meal shows up at the table. One look at the appetizer menu at Mexicali Blues, though, and you're going to want to come in hungry enough to order something between the chips and your main dish! 

Our appetizer menu is filled with all kinds of flavorful creations that are perfect for sharing before lunch, dinner, or a few margaritas with friends. On their own, many of these appetizers can even be ordered as your meal. (In that case, your friends can get their own!) 

Last month we featured the many amazing dips we have to offer which are found in the appetizer section of our menu. A closer look at that section reveals that we have a LOT more than must those many delicious dips for you to choose from. 

First, we'll refresh your memory about the dips (as if you could forget!) then we'll give you a closer look at the other amazing appetizer options we have waiting for you. 


Queso Fundido
Smooth, stringy cheese dip (A local favorite!)

2 flour tortillas stuffed with meat and cheese. Additional options include adding fajita chicken, steak, or shrimp and pico de gallo

Loaded Quesadilla
The Patron of quesadillas! A 12-inch chipotle quesadilla stuffed and folded with fajita chicken, 3 cheese, black beans, peppers, and onions.


Baja Balls
Shredded chicken mixed with our Baja Dip, then breaded and fried

The appetizers are just the beginning of what our extensive menu has to offer. It's filled with the best Mexican food at the Lake of the Ozarks plus the drink menu is packed full of the most amazing margaritas you've ever tasted! 

Better come in hungry so you have room for chips & salsa, an appetizer, AND a main dish! Here's an interesting idea. Come in with a group and have everyone order something different, then enjoy it all buffet-style at your own table. That way you can try lots of Mexicali Blues delicacies all at once without over-stuffing yourself. 

Of course, you could also just come back often and try something new each visit. It really doesn't matter how you do it, as long as you come by soon and give us a try!
