As restaurants and bars resume operations and allow indoor dining once again, you're probably eager to get back out there and experience some of the fine local cuisine the Hudson Valley has to offer.

If you want to give your taste buds a real treat, then you have to try the award-winning food at Mexicali Blue, a California-inspired Mexican restaurant that was recently ranked on Food Network's list of the best burritos in the country.

The Food Network-winning braised short rib burrito at Mexicali Blue's Wappinger's Falls location is packed full with savory slow-roasted short rib, vegetable rice, black beans, fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, onion marmalade, coleslaw, cilantro, and topped off with a sweet spicy chili sauce.

No matter which menu option you decide to go with, whether it's a burrito, enchilada, taco, salad, soup, or one of their chef specialty dinner and combo platters, you can rest assured that you're eating food that was prepared using nothing but the freshest and most natural ingredients available.

With outdoor seating, delivery, and carry out, Mexicali Blue has dining options available for everyone's individual comfort level, so stop by one of their two locations today — 1571 U.S. 9 in Wappingers Falls or 87 Main Street in New Paltz — and see for yourself what makes them one of the best restaurants in America.
