"April 1st of 2016 Caja Caliente was born with a passion for home cooked meals made by abuelo and abuela, and the drive to bring it to the local community.

Yelper Ashley B. wrote, "Start off with freshly made chips and spicy salsa which are great. Of course, this is authentic so the menu is in Spanish (there are English descriptions underneath each dish)..I ordered a margarita along with chicken enchiladas. My fiancé ordered chicken tacos. Everything was delicious and came out fast!"

3. Taco Chido

Yelper Mariana M., wrote, "I must say these are my new favorite Al Pastor tacos in town. They are surprisingly good considering they don't have the trompo. They manage to serve them crispy—just like I like them—with onion, cilantro and chunks of pineapple. They have green and red salsas, both pretty good. My husband had the Tripa tacos and absolutely loved them."
