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.

Congratulations Caliente Cab Co you ruined a good thing. The brunch menu was changed, prices went up, and there is only one drink included in the brunch instead of the 2 which were previously offered. Instead of being a great deal with many options it is just so so because many of the great meals on the brunch menu were removed. We used to go to this brunch quite often and may never go back.

Don't order a piña colada without alcohol cause you'll pay the price as if it had alcohol. According to the manager on Aug 25 @ 4:00pm "cause is coming from the bar". The place is crammed in with too many chairs. You can't pull one chair out without baging into the one right behind it. prices are too high for just tortillas and beans...and you really got to dig in to find anything else besides rice in their dishes. A chicken burrito must have some chicken in it!

We weren't impressed by the food at all. It is nice to sit outside (though beware of smokers if, like me, you can't stand their smoke), and 3rd Ave is fairly heavily trafficked by the younger set trolling for bars, so you have a decent atmosphere to the neighborhood. But like a lot of the establishments on this "fraternity row," this place seems more geared to feeding people who have booze on the mind, rather than food. Too many better places to eat in the neighborhood than to waste time on this restaurant. I will say that the servings were in decent portions, and the price wasn't too bad. But even to someone who isn't a "foodie," the food here just isn't worth it.

The food here is not spectacular, but if you're in the mood for Mexican it's worth a try. Try the combo for 2- it's a giant plate chuck full of fajita stuff. Also the burittos are pretty good and some of the drinks are really strong. A fun place to go with friends for some reasonably priced food and a fun atmosphere!

...I'd venture this branch of Caliente Cab would go out of business. We had dinner there last night - another valient attempt to like this place after it's arrival a few years ago - and once again confirmed this place is not worth the time, energy or money. LAZY. That's the best way to describe the service, the food, the attitude. Even the margaritas are bad! Pray this place packs up, leaves and makes space for a passionate restauranteur to bring this location to it's full potential.

While not a big fan of Caliente for dinner, they have certainly gone all out to produce and interesting, inexpensive brunch menu that really impresses. Starting at $9.95, your brunch includes a couple of drinks (margarita, bloody mary, mimosa), and all omelettes include bacon and fruit. My husband and I have been enjoying this hidden brunch gem for some time.
