If you're someone who drives down Savannah Highway way out where all those dang left turners to Johns Island back up the road, you may have also noticed new Lowcountry-Mexican spot Caliente during your spats of road rage.

Well Brys Stephens also decided to drop by to review the spot for the Charleston City Paper, and generally pleased with seasonings and spicings to be had in this take on classic Mexican food in a no-fuss atmosphere; take a read here.

Charleston Scene also has a quick Q&A with owner Craig Bente and their own short profile of the spot. Generally Caliente has been pretty well liked online, too, with an 88%on Urbanspoon.

You can check out their menu on their site (which done entirely in Flash, bad restaurant! bad!)

They're at 3669 Savannah Highway. (843) 766-4416.
