Mexicali got me Tasting the Blues

We’re always on a quest for good Mexican in DC. Not Salvadoran. Not Chipotle — I want my tacos served with a smile

So we came here to Mexicali Blues with a group of friends bar hopping through Clarendon.  I tried the carnitas.  The food came out burnt, dry like charcoal.

The drinks and food sound good on the menu but rarely taste anything like what they advertise

I ordered the carne asada taco, a real tiny portion. I wanted hard but it came out flour and burnt. The filling bland and tasteless. I reached for the chili sauce. It was stale and tasteless. My food was cold and the entire dish looked like it had been sitting under a food lamp with a burned out bulb for an hour.

My plate was so horrible that I wouldn’t recommend it even if I was starving. One of my worst experiences with Mexican food in Arlington.
