Our fellow diners are Vegan and do not have many dining options in BFE Auburn. Fortunately, Joe Caribe has many items on their menu which do not have meat or dairy in their recipes. We liked the fish tacos, and the salmon platter. The waitress, "Ashley" was very nice, the service has become impeccable in recent years.

Found this place by searching local restaurants (Yelp) and it had such high ratings with great reviews. Was staying at the Best Western right next door and when i asked the Front Desk agent about the local restaurants she recommended it - said it was fairly new and VERY GOOD. We were sat at a booth that had a severely... More

While staying the night at the neighboring Best Western we walked over. We were surprised at how good the food was here with an extensive and varied menu. Plus a great (and apparently changing) beer selection on tap. The bar tender gave us both tastings of their selections and was a beer fan himself. Better than expected for along a... More

We ordered 2 tacos each, fish and chicken and fish and shrimp. A good value, the food was tasty. Unfortunately, they took nearly 45 minutes to arrive, by... More

We love Joe Caribe. It's an unassuming small town restaurant with good food and friendly staff. I personally love the fish tacos, breaded hot wing appetizer, and the house habanero sauce is one of the best hot sauces you'll eat.

There is a CHEF in the kitchen and it shows in the food. They are known for their fish tacos on homemade corn tortillas. The VERY best I've ever ever had. Their signature slaw with it is outstanding. This is not your NORM for Caribbean fare. It is BEYOND outstanding. I loved the food so much, I went for dinner... More
