Restaurant details
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had a layover at the Newark Airport and had lunch at Caliente Cab. The Mexican food was not very good and for the quality of the food they serve it was very overpriced. The tacos at Taco Bell are better than the tacos they serve.Next time in Newark Airport I would rather get a hot dog then try this restaurant again.

We had a long layover in Newark and needed a lunch meal. Looking about our area the options were all the usual fast food diners and this restaurant. We chose the restaurant.

We were greeted and seated by a person who was clearly going through the ropes; absolutely no cheer, passion, or engagement here, doing a job. Not offensive, not welcoming, just doing the job. The young waiter was equally not offensive and not welcoming. But his fingernails were long and had dirt underneath. He answered our couple of questions promptly, clearly knowing his stuff but clearly not caring.

Our meals were priced at $10 and $15. Was it worth the price? I don't know. We were able to sit in privacy in a booth so that has to be quantified. I imagine we could have eaten less good food and paid less money. Their meals, while not really good, were reasonable, okay. And the service wasn't bad, it just wasn't good; all the staff seemed as if they could not care less about the job.

Our mistake is not checking TripAdvisor for airport dining; had we I may have chosen fast food, then again, the booth not in the food court must be quantified.

Margaritas were a total ripoff. Had the fajitas. They were ok. Not enough sour cream. But really, just expensive and not worth it.

Yes, it's an airport restaurant. But even so, it is overpriced and less than moderate in quality. They definitely gave a quirky take on Mexican food. I was very hungry and still had a hard time choking it down. That would have been bad enough, but the staff seemed almost intent on ignoring you as well. Pass this place by and you will be well seeves
