There are healthy food choices at reasonable prices and the food is great! This is one of my favorite "go to" faster food restaurants.

we've been frequenting Caliente since its inception & it has maintained its consistency thru the years, especially freshness and quality of product. The carnitas still is the best and the decor has transformed itself to the present...a modern, bright setting.

Great quinoa salad and veggie burrito. Wish they had more vegetarian choices, though. Superb salsas!

Food is fresh and on the healthy side yet full of flavor without the guilt. When I crave Mexican food I come to this place. Their Braised Carnitas burrito is delicious. You should also try their flautas.

Great purchase for some amazing food and the staff is very friendly as well! The pancho grilled and rolled quesadilla is definitely a favorite of mine.

Service- very friendly!!! Portion Size- on the smaller side/ I ordered 3 tacos for lunch and should have ordered 4-5 Recommendations- flautas were AMAZING! really appreciate that they use both corn and flour tortillas (depending on the taco) and I don't usually order chicken tacos but the flavor is FANTASTIC and I (surprisingly) prefer the chicken to the carnitas.
