The story of Calexico goes something like this: when two brothers and their best friend from California moved to New York City, they were blown away by the variety and quality of the food the city had to offer (it's true, y'all – there are a lot of delicious things to eat here). But no matter where they looked, they couldn’t find anything that could satisfy their craving for hometown Southern Californian cuisine. So they began cooking – first for theirselves, then for their friends. With family roots in the Mexican city of Calexico itself, it was a natural inspiration for what would become one of New York City's finest Mexican food destinations. Now from winning a Vendy award for their taco cart efforts to making cameos in magazines, newspapers, TV shows, and thrving in their first year on Rivington… it's clear theres no stopping this delicoius freight train that is Calexico.
