I have tried at least 500 Frozen Margharithas at at least 300 places the last 15 years. The on at Caliente Cab is by far the best one I have ever tried. AMAZING.

I took my husband here for his bday and we had a good time. There was no waiting to be seated, abd we got great seats by the window. The place is roomy and not small and cramped. Inside has romantic dim lighting and tables nicely spaced apart. They play music kindda loud but we didn't mind since we love that kind of atmosphere. Our server was polite and helpful, taking the time to explain what each item was. There was another table close by with a larger group having dinner, that was extremely loud and none of the emplyees asked tehm to keep it down. That was my only annoyance for the night. I also like the fact that they are opened pretty late. We got there minutes to 12am on a Saturday night. The food was ok, not the best, but certanly not the worst I've had. So overall i would say the atmosphere of the restaurant is great for going out with freinds, boyfriend/girlfriend, and juts hanging out to have a good time with food and music. I don't know whats up with all the bad reviews, the place is not horrible or close to it, and trust me I am the most picky person ever. Try it for yourself, don't let the bad reviews discourage your from trying this place.

The food is terrible and way overpriced. Even for a NYC restaurant, the service is the worst I have ever experienced. I went with two friends just to get chips and guac a few months ago. We walked in at 10pm or so on a Thursday night to a nearly empty restaurant (now I know why) and it took them 15 minutes to seat us. Then it took an addition 20 minutes to take our order and 20 more to serve it. You'd be better off going to Taco Bell where I'm sure the guy taking your order behind the counter has ten times the personality as the servers at this place.

I go here for two reasons: 1) Good, chunky, freshly-made-to-order, mortar & pestle guac done at your table side. 2) Margaritas with a kick. Besides that, it's a gaudy tourist trap making a craptastic attempt at Mexican food (I can't even bring myself to call is cuisine). But if you're in the area with good weather and no wait for an outside, patio sit down? Snag it, have the guac and a 'rita, and enjoy!

So normally you can go to any Mexican Restaurant and be guaranteed that the chips and salsa are free. At Caliente's you pay $2 for chips and dip. Thats like going to Red Lobster's and having to pay for the rolls. $14 for watered down alcohol beverages, and let's not forget that they consider sour creme a side, and charged me a $1. For chips and dip, and 2 ten dollar plates and 3 drinks $70.00. Rip Off!!! And the service sucked.

My girlfriend and I went for dinner at this restaurant not too long ago and we were not expecting to be so disappointed with the food, atmosphere and service. I read some of the reviews on Menupages before going, which included the warnings about it being a tourist trap, but decided to go there anyway. There was nothing that this place could have done right. The margaritas were bland and watered down because of the ice (we ordered large margaritas in the very tourist-friendly souvenir glasses). The fresh guacamole tasted like it was made from unripened avocados and did not have any salt. The tortilla chips were greasy, thin and some were overdone. The burrito tortilla was burned and the shrimp taco tasted like sea water. My girlfriend's dish was so terrible we don't even remember the name of it. We didn't eat more than a few bites of the main course and had them pack it up to go. On the way to the subway station we were hoping to give the food away to anyone who may be in need. On second thought, it would have been an insult to give that food to anyone. We will never eat there again and should have heeded the warnings about this being a tourist trap. The music was okay.
