The food is good. We had various tacos shrimp, fish, chicken and steak. The chicken one was spicy. Shrimp good but steak the best. The side of rice and beans is our favorite. Happy hour drinks are good because it's 1/2 price otherwise the margaritas are too small. The best thing is churros for dessert with caramel dip and chocolate... More

I live not 1/4 of a mile from Caracara and never visited. I usually do not go for Mexican food. What a surprise when one night I decided to try it out. It's more gormet authentic mexican. Reasonably priced, non the less incredible food. Terrific staff. Sexy romantic decor.

I have been here a few times with friends and I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. It is very upbeat and fun. The food is average Mexican fare but overall very good.

It's been a little while since we have been here. It's usually a regular place we visit. Again we were not disappointed. Service excellent. Wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Food once again leaves nothing to complain about. Excellent restaurant located in Farmingdale. Cannot go wrong with a visit!!

Had heard and read incredibly positive reviews of Caracara. Was disappointed when waitress was completely unknowledgeable of gluten free menu choices and couldn't decipher the menu herself. She also did not offer any of the specials for the evening to us and we were not even aware that they existed until the group behind us sat down and their waiter... More

My personal favorite Mexican restaurant on the island. The best frozen margaritas I've ever had and I typically only get margaritas on the rocks. For apps you can't go wrong with the nachos, empanadas or mex street corn. For entrees the enchilada suizas, short ribs or pork iron skillet are all awesome. The owners Tony and Peter are really nice... More

This is a great place to hang out with your friends at the bar, have some margaritas and guacamole. We went on a Thursday night so it was not that crowded. I have been there a few times and it is packed Friday and Saturday nights. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. A must try!!
