The chips and mango salsa is uniquely Casa Caliente and food is usally just enough spicy but last night was melted cheese without that kick. The party that I was with agreed. It was reassuring to see that they were so busy that we had to wait for a table. So many restuarants have come and gone from that location.... More

Everything is great here. From the complimentary chips and 3 types of salsas to the Taco Salad with ground beef. The green chilli is very good but also very spicy. The burritos are wonderful. Tacos amazing. I do wish there were more less spicy options. The service is always great, I have come to Casa Caliente many times as it... More

My wife and I went here for a nice Saturday afternoon lunch on a patio. Found it and looked at the reviews. Have to say, great Mexican food! Enjoyed the patio. No great views, but still a nice patio. The interior was nice, well decorated. Wait staff was friendly and attentive, but not overly attentive. A SOLID choice for great... More

We recently found Casa Caliente while dining with a group. We are particular about Tex-Mex style food and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the friendly service. The enchiladas and fish tacos are satisfying and the portions large, and I recommend selecting the refried beans instead of the black beans. The variety of salsas that accompany... More

Very fine selection of Mexican dishes prepared just as you like them. Ask you wait person and they can adjust the warmth up or down. We have always been very happy with the service.

This restaurant is VERY close to my house which I just recently moved into to. I was excited that a Mexican restaurant was close. I've been here twice and neither time was great. The food is so so, and so is the service.

Went to the CC for the 1st time 5/12 for dinner. Was very pleased; I had the chili relleno/enchilada/taco combo plate which was well prepared and generous in portion. Their chips and salsas were tasty and fresh; from my experience, they appeared to be prepared on site and not from a bag or jar. Service was friendly, quick and efficient.... More

I am a local and have got to know the owner. I love the fact that Tim supports all of the schools and sport teams in the neighborhood. I go here every time I want Mexican food!

You don't have to have your Mexican hot, but they can delivery if you want. The salsas are great. There are quite a few dishes here that are just darn good, even though it seems the palate for Mexican is all over the board in the SW US.

I can't say enough about the service that we received at our dinner. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. Chips and the variety of salsa, pico and mango salsa was delicious! We ordered the fajita with chicken and shrimp, the chicken was good but the shrimp wasn't that fresh, to be fair we are from the south where fresh... More
