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

We went to Caracara with another couple just before the holidays. All four of us enjoyed our food and the atmosphere was inviting and friendly. The drinks were expensive... three of us had one drink and that was almost as much as our food... that was the only downside, typically when we go out, we'll all maybe have 2 drinks... More

We went to Caracara on a Friday evening and were seated right away. The waiter was very attentive from the start to the finish of our meal. Tortilla chips were served with two sauces as we looked over the menu. We ordered guacamole which was prepared fresh at the table and was just about the best guacamole I have ever... More

Absolutely loved the food! Many choices, all sounded appetizing. Both of our appetizers and main course's were delicious. Decor is unique and authentic but sound level pretty high.

Four of us went to Caracara to have a nice dinner and some cocktails to go along with our conversation. This restaurant did not disappoint! The service was great, food was very good with good size portions. Our friends who joined us were just a few minutes late and waiting by the bar seemed to be the option. The bartender... More

Over priced. Horrible drinks. Terrible food. I keep giving this place a chance and each time i do so, i cannot be more disappointed. The alcohol beverages were diluted and overly sweet. The "steak special" was just the opposite of that. Luke warm and raw would be the appropriate name for it. Ive been fooled into giving this place a... More

One of the few times I did not check with Trip Advisor before going. Felt like Mexican and this restaurant's website gave me the necessary info on their menu and location. They run many types of specials during weekdays. Including a loyalty card. Anyway my wife and I started with martinis. The coconut raspberry martini was excellent. Monday's they had... More

Tried to go the week before but place was packed and the wait was 45 minutes. Made reservations the following week and was not disappointed. Great guacamole. Chips with the 2 salsas were also good. My wife and I had the iron Skillet tacos with hanger steak and the marinated pork with banana leaf. Atmosphere was great and our waiter... More
