Caliente Mexican Restaurant

Caliente Mexican Restaurant

Caliente Mexican Restaurant has been open since 2015, however the owners, managers along with the chefs have decades of combined experience. We wanted to share our love for cooking with Carmel IN neighbors and that is the reason we decided to start a new journey here. You can still enjoy some of mexican dishes at our other locations, however Caliente wanted to make sure you didn’t have to travel that far to find and enjoy some unique mexican cuisine.

    "Decided to stop in for lunch and loved it. Doesn’t seem too special from outside but all the wood carvings inside the building, along with the fountain in the entrance, let’s you know this place is special. They got daily specials and the food is not only delicious, but very well portioned. Only complaint is their beer selection is limited to macros, but all around a great place!"- Victor C.

    "What a pleasant surprise to see that Caliente is now open! Wonderful service, very reasonable prices, bright and fun atmosphere. Complimentary chips and salsa are appreciated (as always), but pretty standard. I ordered the huevos rancheros lunch special, which was quite tasty, although the eggs were a tad over cooked. The ranchero sauce was delightful - had a nice little kick to it. I will definitely be going back!"- Bonnie K. Indianapolis, IN
