Average Mex-American or Tex-Mex taco / burrito hole. NOT authentic Mexican food but the outdoor space is nice.

It's a little bit excessively pricey, and the food is good but not amazing, however, this can be expected for the neighborhood. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the restaurant was close to where we needed to go after (comedy club), and able to get us in and out quickly, which is why we chose it.

We went here for Mother’s Day, and had another great experience. I have been going to Caliente Cab Company for the last 20 years, and they have never disappointed me. Well, maybe on this past Cinco De Mayo when the line to get in was literally a block long so we had to go somewhere else. Always great food, great friendly service and festive atmosphere.

It was better than I expected...the cocktails were really fun and delicious, and the value is phenomenal. We had a very sweet waiter named Isaac who took good care of us and made great suggestions. I will go again.

Good outdoor seating on a warm day. My friend ordered a margarita and didn't know there were different sizes but the waitress decided for her and gave her the gigantic, pricier one. And on the receipt was an aggressive reminder tip was not included, which is probably because of tourists. Overall just seems like the service was concerned about themselves more than customers. Food was fine.
