Food was really good and so was the service. Definitely would go back next time we are on that side of the state.

I stopped by this vintage style place that kind of reminded me of the old west, and enjoyed a great, juicy burger with good cheese and crisp lettuce, onions and fixings. The fries were piping hot and tasted great with the cool adult beverage that I selected. I first had a cool sweet, crisp wine and then selected a nice... More

I had the grilled pork chop which was cooked perfectly and it came with corn and mashed potatoes. I also ordered the mac and cheese which was out of a box. They didn't have beer or wine on the menu but because the bar it attached to the restaurant I would think if you asked, they would bring you an... More

Not a lot of choice in Caliente. The place needs a overhaul. The seat cushions were ripped and taped together. Smoke filled the room from the adjoining bar. The cheese burger was very good while my wife's mashed potatoes were cold and the pork chop had been doused in garlic. Stick to a burger and you can not go wrong.

Caliente offers no broad spectrum of diners and restaurants, so we found ourselves at the table of Knotty Pine. The food was quite ok, cooked and served by some very enthousiast ladies. Thanks to the airco the temperature was a 'real cool experience'. Due to the ventilators on the ceiling I went back to the car to grab my hat.... More

Dirty, slow, horrible service. Don't understand the meaning of customer service. Sit next to the window and expect flies up your nose. Wait 50 minutes for your food when you have a 1 hour lunch break is ridiculous!

We were on the road back to Sacramento and noticed that there were a few cars parked outside this small old diner and decided to stop over for lunch. Walking into this eatery and finding the interior walls all lined up with pretty knotty pines was interesting. The place was also decorated with old trains, the seats and booths were... More

A basic diner style, with mostly local customers. We were passing though, and this seemed to be the only sit-down restaurant in town. Food was actually very good, and service was friendly. I ordered the pastrami-cheese burger, and my partner ordered the special, a chicken salad on a bed of lettuce.
