Caliente Cab Co

So my girl and I are walking by when we see this monstrosity and think, "Hey, maybe this is good Mexican food.". We were so incredibly wrong. We shared the $20 tapas platter, recommended for 2-3 people, and found the portion to be pitiful, even for appetizers. The taste was lackluster and honestly seemed like it could have been from a frozen TV dinner. We also fell prey to the overpriced (and weak) frozen margaritas, which tasted more like Jamba Juice but triple the price. I finished both of our Margaritas just to try and get full, but to no avail. We could have had something practically fancy for our $60 instead of eating inside a "taco taxi". We paid our bill, crossed the street, and ate a much more satisfying meal at the Hummus Place for $12 immediately afterwards. Be sure not to stop at this place. Even though we live here, we felt like some tourists that had just been suckered. Oh, and I was sure to ask for the "souvenir" margarita glasses to take home. I was gonna try to get my damn money's worth. Unfortunately, now I'll be stuck with a bad taco taxi taste in my mouth every time I use the glasses.

This was my first time coming here and I've passed it so many times. Waited in line for an outside table for 2, about 15min. Was seated and so anxious to try their famous guac but...not worth it and WAY WAY over priced. Rosa Mexicana kills CCC's fresh guac. Our dinner came and to make room, our unfinished plate of nachos was taken away. We ordered a fajita and a burrito. It was good but the veggies could've stood to get grilled longer and soften up. We had to ask for water, napkins and an extra side dish to take things off the plate. I was glad i tried it b/c I was so curious about the line that's always waiting but, I've fulfilled and satisfied that curiosity. The food was overpriced and I've had much better quality and service for less, elsewhere.

Overpriced margaritas ($14) with no liqour in them and the food is subpar. Its really just a tourist trap. Service was no good. Our waiter messed up our order and then blamed it on us!

So, this place is horrible. First off, the waitress gave us sass and did not bring us any water when requested. I was with a large group and we were not taken care of. My margarita tasted like mango soap with cheap tequila that was shaken...not blended. My burrito was drowned in an awful chipotle sauce. A member at our table totally sent back his food saying that it was inedible. When the bill came, it was ridiculously expensive and not worth it. We asked to split the bill on five credit cards and the rest cash. We were then told that there was a three credit card maximum. With a group of 10 people that is near impossible. When we tried to speak to the manager he was less than helpful and still insisted that the customer was not right.

The margaritas for $14 total waste of money. waited an hour for the food and it was the most substandard burrito and enchilada i have ever eaten. It is way too expensive and the food is very poor in quality and taste. Just by putting cheese on top of everything does not make it good food. Burrito was too salty and could not even taste the chicken. The refried beans was a mush of cheese and 3 beans floating in some gravy.

I went to celebrate a friends birthday as it was the restaurant of her choosing, otherwise I would have had dinner somewhere else. The food was very dissappointing. The guacamole was tasteless. How can you mess up guacamole? The rest of the dinner was more of an American version of mexican food - too bland for my tastes. The service was great - the waiters were attentive and the drinks were nice and strong. So for real mexican food go elsewhere. Its good for drinks at the bar and big TV atmosphere.

As long as this place has been in business you would think they could create a better menu. Love the videos. The salads are good and the wings as a starter. I will never try a full course meal here again unless I want tasteless food. They should also include drink specials that are more reasonable…how many Caliente Cab Co, glasses should one person own. Suggestion bring back all you can eat (wings) and frozen drinks or beer specials ($$) Fridays. That’s where the money is!
