This is definitely one of my favorite restuarants the food is great and served quicly there salads have great flavor and are very filling. The drinks are better than the ones at the bars surrounding it and they have all day drink specials when you sit at the bar. During after work hours especially in the summer it can get really busy love sitting in their outside seating area on a hot day and sip their frozen drinks. It can get a little loud in there since it is surrounded by a bunch of bars and thurs-sun they have a DJ come in so it is definitely very lively in there. Great place to grab some good food and drinks highly recommended! Wish I could say the same for their 7th ave location the service is awful and the menu isn't the same, trust me definitely worth the trip to 3rd avenue.

Came here a few years ago and swore not to return because of how disappointing it was. Well I did return and remembered why I hadn't come back in years. It is not good. Mini beef tacos were decent, enchalada's nothing special, and guacamole tasted way too much of lime.

I have been here before, and had come away thinking it was nothing great - at that time, the food wasn't great, seemed overpriced and the service was nothing to write home about. But it was such a pleasant night, and their outdoor seating seemed inviting so we gave it another shot. I am glad we did! They have a new Specials menu that we ordered from, and I LOVED it! The mojito was a good size (though a tad expensive), the salsa wasn't chunky but still tasted good, and the service was prompt and efficient. We made a few customizations and they got everything right. We ordered the chocolate dessert, and that was great too. Overall, a very pleasant surprise!

honestly, i cant say anything about their food because ive never had it. but seriously, there margaritas are such a great deal. friday night pregame this should be your spot. and the chips they give you are great. they also have heat lamps outside for when it gets cooler. OLAY!

My friends and I decided to visit this spot solely for the outdoor seating. We split a couple appetizers and we could not even finish them! We could have purchased the same appetizers at Food Emporium and re-heated them better ourselves! We finished a bottle of beer each and ran away - never to return again.

Love Caliente....it is a great place to hang out, especially during warm nights. The fajitas and guacamole are to DIE for!!! Compared to other mexican restaurants in the city...this is much cheaper, and you get more food. The food is also better, and the menu has more options. All of the friends that I have referred love this place.

There are no more Checker Fuel Pina Coladas, which were made with 151 rum, and really worth the price of the drink. They said they had a problem with the distributor. So now the Pina Coladas taste like slushies, and you have to pay $2.00 extra for a shot of rum, which obviously is not Bacardi anymore. The Warm Fajita Cobb Salad used to be a large tortilla filled with steak, lettuce, avacados, etc. Now it is a small, flat tortilla , about an inch high. But the prices are all still the same. What a disappointment! We have been going there for years, but we will never go back again.
