Lucy's Mexicali Restaurant

Lucy's Mexicali Restaurant Review

"The best margaritas in the world" is the motto of this family-owned Mexican food establishment. Hyperbole aside, all the staples are on the menu, plus some not-so-standard items like chicken fajita burritos and enchiladas served the New Mexico way—that is, flat with an egg on top. Try the Tucson-style chimichangas and tasty carnitas (beef brisket or chicken sautéed with chili peppers). Be sure to order Adam's Queso, a cheese dish that's a Lucy's original. Lucy's also operates a full bar and weekend entertainment center down the street (701 S. Canal Street).
