Seventh Avenue (West Village) / New York, New York
Caliente Cab Co. is a tourist-oriented restaurant serving up franchise quality tex-mex fare in the West Village and has been doing so since the mid-80's. While the 1950 Studebaker is definitely caliente, the food is eh.. stick to the freshly made guacamole, chips and magaritas. And it's a great place for people watching from the outdoor patio in the more temperate months - though yesterday hit 65 degrees. Not a bad way to wind down 2008.
