Great food, good service

I dined here on a Saturday for lunch with girlfriends. We had the option to order from the brunch or lunch menu and shared a few dishes. I started off with a passion margarita (yummy and fruity) and then a jalapeno/cucumber margarita (bold and spicy, but not overwhelmingly spicy). We shared... read 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

Took a friend here for their birthday dinner. We had a small order of guacamole made table side which was one of the best I have had. Then, a skillet dinner and one appetizer. All were fantastic. Rice was different with pumpkin seeds and other things. Beans were different too. Instead of flour tortilla's they served corn. All servings looked... More

The food and atmosphere at Caracara were amazing. We enjoyed the mojitos, the guacamole (although not prepared exactly table side), and the chicken enchiladas. The fish tacos were very tasty, but wish the portion was larger. I would highly recommend a visit.

Since my first visit in 2012, I've revisited Cara Cara and had much better experiences. The food is excellent and the service is excellent. I've had many menu items and all were great. Delicious drinks. Since my first visit in 2012, I've had to eat Gluten Free. Cara Cara is a great place for gluten free food.

At a recent visit to Caracara, on main street in Farmingdale, we were pleasantly surprised with an upscale spanish/mexican restaurant with reasonable prices. You must try their amazing Tamales! The guacamole made table-side was good, but could have used more seasoning. The taco sampler dinner included a fish taco, beef taco and chicken taco in soft shells, all of which... More

Happy hour is a good buy. Entrees are small and expensive. I had the steak and it was tough. Get the fresh guacamole. .Delish!!!
