Caliente has always been synonymous with tacos and margaritas to me. Over the years, I haven’t deviated much from my order. When I do get something else, I’ve always enjoyed it and wondered why I didn’t do it sooner! But, soon enough, there I am, ordering tacos the next time I visit.
It’s easy to see why though – from the moment you step onto their outdoor deck, that sea breeze hits you, and when you take in the gorgeous views from their front steps nothing sounds better than a margarita and some tacos to make you feel like you’re truly on vacation!
Beyond the views, I also love that Caliente will bring you complimentary chips and salsa along with your drink. Have you ever found yourself doubting your hold on self-control when faced with fresh chips and salsa?
Dash some hot sauce on the salsa – it’s made right on the premises. Once again, you will understand why my love affair with Caliente rages on. I love that their food is so authentically homemade. Behind the scenes in the kitchen is owner Melly’s brother Amelio or/and his wife, and they create delicious meals that you clean off your plate! The roasted habaneros that go in the pepper sauce are fired up right in the kitchen too, and lemme tell you, nothing quite like it! Get some to take home with you; it’s worth it!
To cool you down, take nice sips of their signature margaritas, or, if you’re feeling brave, their sangaritas! When you just can’t decide between wine or tequila, Caliente has your back with the perfect equation: sangria + margarita!
Honestly, this family owned and operated eatery will keep you coming back. They dote on you, take good care of you, and feed you amazing food and drinks. What’s not to love?
