Went here for a dinner on a Saturday evening and the place was busy, but not slammed with customers. The service was polite, but terribly efficient. We ordered a couple combo plates. My son had the Tacos Mixtos and I went witht he Enchiladas Mixtos. My son pronounced the Tacos Mixtos as tasteless. He wish he had just ordered the... More

Great place to go for dinner and drinks. Most of the food I have tried is delicious. The guacamole that they make in front of you is the best!

Not your average Mexican restaurant! It has an elegant ambiance to go along with truly great and imaginative food. Always consistently delicious with good size portions and reasonable prices. Staff and service has always made us feel welcome and special. They do not have the usual (and sometimes annoying) mariachi band roaming around which is a relief for me.We have... More

The best Mexican place on the Island. Everything is great, the food, drinks, the atmosphere, and desserts. I love the Mexican Changas, omg,,,it's a fried flour tortilla with bananas, caramel and cream cheese. Too die for!!!

Surprising find in downtown Farmingdale, excellent Mexican cuisine, from the tableside preparation of your guacamole to a great flan. Well worth the trip

Liked the food but resturant was packed. Couldn't move your chair or walk thru tables. They ran out of specials early. Could be great but need to tweak a few things

Excellent food and service. Great margaritas with dozens of tequila options as well as monitors and other specialty cocktails. Most Mexican restaurants favor the party atmosphere to the point of poor service. The service at Caracara is excellent, very pleasant, and timely. Loved the short ribs, chicken tacos, nachos, and table side guacamole. No more lame generic food. The menu... More

Cinco de Mayo is a great way to fill that craving for good Mexican food close to home. After hearing CaraCara advertised , we decided to try it for lunch. The guacamole prepared table side was fixed as ordered with the freshest ingredients. The wide variety of tacos were tasty and ample for lunch. The chips were fresh and crisp.... More

This was my fifth visit to this fantastic establishment and each visit is even better than the last. The highlight of the meal is the table side prepared guacamole. I have ordered it each visit, prepared by a different team member each time, and the consistent excellence is remarkable! The entree menu is awesome! Each visit I try something different... More
