“Mexican Get-Away (without the flight!)”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Remember lounging and lingering at the pool/beach-side hang-out--caught somewhere between your daytime adventure and your night-time ventures? That's the essence of the ambience at Casa Caliente. Through music and decor that rivals a Mexican port-of-call, Casa Caliente savors that moment of freedom and bone-warming relaxation. Food that's fresh, served quickly, and perfectly spiced--is exceeded only by the friendly, attentive, and personalized warmth of the service staff. So good an experience the first time, I came back twice the next day--and lingered to savor the experience!

“Bland & Boring”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We live right behind Casa Caliente. When it first opened the food was amazing. It was fresh, filled with flavor & great portions. You can tell that have since cut corners. The nacho portions are not consistent. We have ordered them over 5 times. Go back to using the recipes & portions that you opened with. We will not be going back.

“Great Local Mex Food Restaurant”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

My bride and I just discovered this place. Wife loves the decor (I am gratefully not qualified to discuss decor) seems to be family-run with lots of smiles and excellent service. Food was really outstanding and not "run of the mill." Big, flat screen TVs to watch the games while eating. Nice specials and everything seems homemade (including chips and salsa). Chips are terrific (they come hot to your table) and salsa very flavorful but varies in "temp" - today's being VERY hot. Green chili was also very flavorful although also VERY hot today (my recommendation is to offer it in hot/medium/mild but that is not always easy when you do it from scratch). We'll be back!
