I had took my partner there for our two year anniversary & it was such a refreshing pleasant new experience. The waitress was amazing and attentive. She gave us some good recommendations since it was our first time. Food and drinks were amazing! Quality and service was outstanding & the time wait for food was pretty fast! I left a $30 tip and I’m definitely making it one of my regular spots to grab a margarita :).?

Outdoor seating was pleasant, service was quick and the noise level was low (that may not be true inside). Party of four -- two adults and two teenagers -- and everyone enjoyed their meals very much.

Great margaritas ! There was a big choice and the blood orange one was delicious. The food was good and the staff were friendly. The noise level was fine and there was outside seating if preferred. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Mexican food.

Had to wait 20 minutes for my food and when it came out it was cold. The server seemed annoyed and the old guy at the door checking ID had a nasty attitude. There are too many restaurants in the city for me to come back here or even recommend it to anyone

It was a good experience. The drinks were amazing!!!! I had a frozen pina colada and I just couldn't stop drinking it! And the lighting, music, and decor of the place was very much Mexican Culture. Very laid back so it's a good place for a night out with friends or jusy to hang out too.

Caliente Cab was delicious! My friend and I had a reservation and we were seated promptly upon arrival. The restaurant is a little crowded and warm at peak hours, but the ambience and energy fit perfectly with the decor. Our food and drinks came out surprisingly fast and everything was delicious. Their speciality drinks are fantastic and everything is fairly priced for the area the restaurant is in. Overall, we had a fun time on a beautiful night and look forward to being back again soon!

Drinks sat empty most of the night. Salsa trio is enough for one person for $7. When we asked about the portion the manager actually rolled his eyes at us! The cheese in my enchilada was still in cubes (never melted) Overall the food was decent but the service and attitudes of the staff made it a place I wouldn’t recommend.

What you see is what you get here. I’d rate the food one step up from any sit-down chain establishment. Good, consistent but not a wow. Drinks weren’t very balanced. They rush you through the meal - it’s about quick table turnover -so be prepared for that. Had the fajitas, not sure why they charge extra for peppers and cheese. Can’t figure out what’s actually on the plate if you don’t get that? Just meat and onions? Skip the rice and beans. Of all the food it had the least flavor. If you have picky eaters or if you like chain restaurants you’ll probably love this place.

Poor service overall. The food was dry and salty. The food didn’t taste fresh or have that authentic Mexican taste. The guacamole was really good along with the chips. I ordered the chicken panko crusted chicken with rice and black beans. The chicken was fried to hard and was salty. The rice and beans was bland.. didn’t have a great experience at all..
