The food took forever to come, it tasted horrible and looked even worse-the entire plate was 1 color except the white rice. Too spicy and what wasnt spicy had a weird taste to it.

Caliente is a diamond in the rough. This place is not for everyone because of the bar atmosphere, but if you like interesting and amazing food at a very reasonable price then stop in, you will not be disappointed.
I took my father and stepmother here, they were so impressed they will only go here when they come to town. The New Orleans Clam Chowder is so good you will get some to go. They always have some great flank or skirt steak specials, and the jamacian beer butt chicken is like butter in your mouth.
The 20 bottles of wine for $20 is one of the best menu ideas I have seen in a long time. We always walk out of here with dinner for two and a bottle of wine for a total of $55.

good neighborhood restaurant, I like how they are not afraid to use spices to add a little flair to their dishes.

Unusual but GREAT shrimp and grits with spicy collards. Most menu items have at least a mild kick. Everything has been good since it opened five or six years ago.
