This was my family's first visit to Casa Caliente. It was in our way home from picking the car up from the shop. We realized we had a discount with our high school team card and thought we"d try it. On the table is a daily listing of "happy hour" specials, 4-6 pm. We arrived at 5:30. The Weds special... More

It's always nice to see a neighborhood restaurant busy, that way you know it's not going to disappear. Casa Caliente satisfies the craving for large plates of hot melted cheese on top of a burrito or chimichanga. There is a full bar with several styles of margaritas and Mexican beers. There is something for everyone.

Our large party of 13 visited this restaurant before Christmas. Even though they were extremely BUSY, the owner and our waitress bent over backwards to be very accommodating. Loved the variety of salsas available with the chips. Food was delicious.

My husband and I recently stopped by Casa Caliente for dinner. The service was good and the food was okay, although nothing special. This was the third time we've eaten at this restaurant. When given a choice, we usually prefer black beans over refried beans but we have to remember NOT to order the black beans here as they are... More

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.
