Food ok. Nothing extraordinary, had better salvadorian food. Tacos very little for the price and flavorless. Chicharron con yuca way too small for price. Ambience... Not family friendly since there were men at bar drinking and swearing watching a soccer game and the employees didn't seem to care. Will never be back

We got take out for four from here. Delicious popusas and tasty tacos and they give you the shredded lettuce for the popusas, as well as a variety of salsa/hot sauce for the meal. Service was quick and the bill came out to less than $40 for four people. The actual restaurant was clean and did not have a wait.... More

Since they opened, I have eaten there at least once a week. The food is authentic and tastes amazing!

We have ordered take-out from Caliente Grill several times, trying a different dish every time, and the food is always outstanding. The escabeche is my favorite, but everything we have ordered from here has been great. I've never been to El Salvador but imagine home cooked food there is very similar to this. The flavors are fresh, and the portions... More

This place received an absolutely outstanding write up in the local paper, the Annapolis Capital. The only comment the writer got right was that it's a friendly family run restaurant. The appetizer (Gaucamole) was OK but small in size and overpriced. We had a party of four and everyone considered their separate entree in the poor to terrible category and... More

This is my favorite neighborhood "go to" when I don't feel like cooking. Quiet, affordable and great Central American food. We especially love the nachos, loaded with fresh avocado! We also love the soups and tamales. Happy hour prices on drinks rock!

Caliente Grill, an El Salvadoran restaurant was such a pleasant change from the usual restaurants who just take your order and serve your food. It was the three of us for dinner on a Saturday evening. We were greeted with a genuine smile from the owner, Roxanna, who was anxious to make our meal relaxing and 'full of surprises'. It... More

A local recommended this spot when we were discussing good Latin food and I'm really glad we tried it! We all had the pupusas, which I highly recommend- we tried the revuelta (pork, beans and cheese) or the bean and cheese and both were crispy and hot off the griddle, if a bit greasy. My daughter had a tamale, which... More

Though their prices are much higher than Cha Cha Chicken, I ventured to try this new restaurant. I was met by an empty restaurant and told I would have to wait 20 minutes for an order. Since I had a contractor at home, I elected to take out my order but the owner refused to take my groupon. Rude behavior... More

Caliente Grill was a very nice, friendly, clean restaurant and the staff spoke English and was so polite. I had gotten a shrimp quesadilla and was very impressed. It was filled with lots of cheese and shrimp and I was stuffed. It was presented very nicely and I couldn't wait to start eating. The staff answered all my questions regarding... More
