My husband and I came for drinks and appetizers. It was too loud inside for our liking for luckily we were able to get a seat outside. We had the tableside guacamole and the empanadas. They were fantastic. Our server Thomas was very friendly and enthusiastic. We'd love to return when we're in the area.

This Mexican food is absolutely delicious and very affordable! I love that they have the bar area seperate from the dining area so on somedays we can just sit at the bar and enjoy a snack and some cocktails. Love coming here

Newsday just rated this place one of the top 100 restaurants in Long Island.. The staff was very attentive and constantly checked to make sure you had everything... More

They are serving way more than tacvos and burritios here, although they too are on the rather xtensive menu. The food nere ks based on the tradional Mexican melas available to more a fluent citizens of Mexico, and let me tell you the offerings are excellent. The staff was very attentive, but our waiter, possibly new, was not all that... More

We dine at Caracara often, the food is so fresh and delicious, the staff and owners are friendly and offer great service. Tableside guacamole is amazing, some favorites are shrimp tamale, pollo relleno & hangar steak! Also fun happy hour, terrace dining & great live music on weekends!

Several friends and I had dinner here one Sat night and the restaurant was quite busy although it didn't affect our service. We had sangria by the pitcher, a double serving of the fresh guacamole dip that is made in front of us at the table and was very good. All of us enjoyed our dishes and shared, pork chop... More

The food was good, but we've had better at other Mexican restaurants. Our server was extremely pleasant and friendly, but it was very busy so we had to wait for some things we asked for. Was disappointed that they did not have a special LI Restaurant Week menu. We were told to order from the regular menu but many dishes... More

This was the first time for us at a Mexican restaurant, we went with another couple who had been there before. Our Grandson (28 ) recommended it. We were Very Pleasantly surprised, as the food was terrific and plentiful, the atmosphere was upbeat, and our waitress Kimberley was expert in explaining the various choices. Our Bartender was unbelievably adept at... More
