    There comes a time in every man's life where he must admit that he no longer has a teenager's metabolism, and move past greasy rolled quesadillas onto more responsible yet equally delicious burritos.

    The quesadillas are great and the burritos are good, but the quesadillas take 5-10 minutes longer to make. If you can't wait, get a burrito. (If the line's long, it won't be quick either way.)

    One of the best burritos I've ever had and that's saying a lot: I'm from LA. Get a burrito with chicken and steak, add crack sauce. Be prepared to wait a while, it's totally worth it.

    I'm not even going to bother leaving a tip, I just wanted to say that this was the best burrito experience of my life. Ok, I lied, get a carne asada with crack sauce.

    If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else. But if you *really* need your Calexico fix, order the black bean burrito. You'll have to skip the meat, but it's the fastest thing on their menu to prepare.

    Ask for the crack sauce either on the side or inside your order. I go for the chipotle pork burrito with crack sauce and it's delicious for lunch!

    1) The carne asada gets a lot of Tips love, but my endorsement goes to carnitas. 2) Napkins are often not included. 3) Walk a block north and cross Houston for outdoor seating.

    Best food for your money in SoHo. They have great specials and are occasionally not there on days they should, so make sure to follow them on twitter. @CalexicoNYC

    To avoid the lunch hour rush, try to get there a little before noon. If you do have to wait, make sure you get something with crack sauce to reward your patience.

    Everything's awesome here, but I'm a huge fan of the Carne Asada burrito. You can also ask for it spicy, which they'll throw habanero sauce on it. The best.

    Some of the best mexican food around. If you want a healthier route you can get the beef or chicken bowl and replace the rice with veggies :)

    A Foursquare employee favorite in SoHo. This Mexican food cart has captured our hearts with mouth-watering bowls of delicious seasoned meat and their uniquely rolled quesadillas.

    Don't get me wrong the taste is always great but the shrinking size of the burritos is not good when the price has gone up. I recall feeling full in the old days...

    They roll their quesadillas which I think is a brilliant idea. Makes for easier eating. The chipotle sauce that comes with it is kinda awesome.

    If trying for a somewhat healthier alternative opt for the burrito bowl and add some crack sauce. Pollo verde is my go to for the bowl

    Steak burrito bowls with the crack sauce. Chicken Quesadillas. A bit of a wait during peak lunch hour but it's totally worth it. -Erica C

    Pulled pork burrito! So juicy and the spiciness of chipotle adds a very nice kick!:)

    Pretty much anything here is absolutely delicious but I'm partial to the black bean burrito. Get it with extra crack sauce!

    The line can get insane but the food is great. The quesadillas take a bit longer than everything else but are delicious

    Rolled chicken quesadilla comes with _amazing_ crack sauce for dipping. Add a $2 side of Mexican rice to fill you up.

    LOVED their pollo asada quesadilla! Gotta come back for further research. (Their crack sauce is ALL the noms!)

    Everything is amazing...even more so with the crack sauce. Why would you go to chipotle which is more expensive anyway?

    Pollo verde burrito (naked) was reasonable, but not amazing. Service was friendly and very fast considering how many people were there.

    Hipster burritos is what we used to call them. Whatever the name, they're definitely the best burrito in the neighborhood.

    The Chipotle pork taco was my absolutely favorite, the Carne Asada burrito is always a great choice.

    Calexico is proof that cheap food can taste amazing! Go chipotle pulled pork anything with a side of crack sauce!

    Some of the best burritos. I get the carne asada with guacamole and chips on the side. Cash only.

    I just licked the salsa container, at work, in front of horrified colleagues - it's THAT good. So are the tacos. This place is my new go-to lunch spot.

    Meh- they run out of meat early and make you wait forever. Go around the corner to Qdoba for fresher ingredients and a quicker experience.

    Crack sauce is for wimps, get them to load up your burrito with Jalapeños instead. Carne Asada is bomb.

    Gringo ground beef tacos are addicting and of course the self explanatory chipotle "crack" sauce.

    Better and cheaper than the restaurant. Feel free to discard the second tortilla on your taco

    Black bean & avocado quesadillas! Comes with crack sauce. If you like meat: the pork tacos.

    Rolled Quesadillas are the tits, for vegetarians, but if you're tryin'a feel healthful, go for the tacos.

    For a slightly healthier calexico experience get the bowl without rice. Still really filling too.

    They open at 11:30. Come before noon and you won't have to wait. Add jalapeños.

    Any burrito: ask them to add Crack sauce and guacamole for a little extra punch.

    Would you ever wait 1h in line in front of food cart for a burrito? Yeah, me neither. Except for the calexico's carne asata burrito.

    During weekdays, you have to get here before 11:45am or else there's a 30 minute wait.

    Quesadilla is the move here, but you're gonna need a side to fill out your lunch.
