I was really hoping for more, the staff was nice, but the food really did not meet my expectations. The guac was just okay, would have been nice if tghey prepared at your table so you know it is fresh. Chips were so light that you could not did in guac, or salsa - they break. Drinks did not taste... More

There are a ton of restaurants in downtown Frederick, so I had high expectations when a local shop owner said that Caciques was the "best Mexican restaurant" in town. I could eat guacamole as a meal, so I was also hoping for some great guac. It was ok, but nothing special. What was really disappointing was that the bottom of... More

It has been a couple of years since we have dined here and we did not notice any difference. The service was fast, efficient and the food was superb. We had the Spinach Enchiladas as well as Chiles Rellenos. Really wish they would transport this restaurant down to Myrtle Beach.

So, we finally got a nice evening to head downtown for a side walk dinner. Cacique is one of the few Frederick Downtown restaurants that provides seating outside. We always are satisfied with the meal prepared here, the food is freshly made and is authentic Mexican/Spanish fare. We will always return here, especially now that the weather permits us to... More

Good: Spinach Enchiladas are simply the best I've ever had; great Gambas Al Ajillo; their mango margaritas are divine, but pricey. Bad: Not much except the prices of some things. Ugly: The prices of their drinks off happy hour is REALLY pricey.

If you're looking for good mexican food in the downtown area, Cacique has all the usual options. The restaurant is quite large and has a lively bar area. Food tastes pretty good, and they have a cheese dip that is really tasty.

We've dined at Cacique on visits to Frederick a few years ago and liked it, chose it this visit because we've tried a few other local places (all great) and believe the general Frederick restaurant scene is improving. My wife is Spanish and had liked their Spanish cuisine. Excellent sangria, much better than that served by a tapas bar a... More

Having read the reviews online, I told my family to anticipate waiting for food. We ate early--4:30 on a Sunday, but were seated right away and immediately provided with water, chips, and salsa. We placed our drink order while waiting for the rest of our party. When all assembled, we had some questions about Spanish menu. Our server was knowledgeable,... More

We stopped in for a late lunch while doing some shopping in downtown Frederick. They have both Spanish and Mexican food. The pupusa that my wife got was very good, as was my seafood wrap (shrimp and scallops were cooked well and in good amounts). Service was slightly slow, but the server knew the food and told stories about the... More

The food was good though a bit bland. The service was slow and we had to go looking for the waiter twice. He was is the bar watching tv.:/ Probably won't go back.
