We had a wonderful waiter, Samei at Cacique. We had a slight time constraint and our waiter was very understanding. He was extremely helpful and friendly and took great care of us. The food was delicious and hot. We had an excellent experience.

Never disappointed with the cuisine. The seafood soup is a must on a cold winter day. Only place I can get a decent chili relleno for miles.

My husband and I had lunch here last week. The menu has wonderful selections of both Mexican and Spanish food. I had the pistachio encrusted salmon with steamed vegetables. It was excellent! My husband has a seafood Caesar salad that had so much seafood! The shrimp were huge, the scallops as well, and the Tilapia was also plentiful. The service... More

It is a large restaurant with ample indoor space and a few tables outside. They have a wide range of offerings both on the Spanish and the Mexican side. Food is decent, nothing extraordinary but not bad either. Service is very friendly and efficient.

This is one of three restaurants managed and owned by the same owner. Many of the same menu items can be found in all three locations. I must admit - I do like Mexicali Cantina better - both for the atmosphere (not quite as noisy and you can get a private room as well...) and the food. I've had the... More

Had never been here before, but tried it because the only parking space I found was in front of the restaurant. This place is a gem! The food is hot and fresh and prepared perfectly. The service is fast, competent and friendly. Our water glasses never got below half-full. The margaritas were generous and wonderful! The prices were very reasonable... More

We try to eat here anytime we are in the area. We have never been disappointed yet. My wife eats nothing but the Spinach Enchilda's as she can seem to find them anywhere else. Also had the Garden Talapia, absolutely delicious. Our waiter, Elias, was friendly and attentive. Great place to eat.

This place is one of the few in downtown frederick with ample seating. We've been here for business dinner and were able to sit with 20 people together. Typical Mexican restaurant with plenty to choose from. I actually like their fish plates a lot. Decent prices for downtown, although Fajita Grande and Casa Rico are just as good and even... More

Whenever I'm in Frederick I always eat at Cacique. I think they have the best Mexican/Spanish food around. The resturant is very nice, linen tablecloths, quiet atmosphere, nice staff and the price is right. Their chips and salsa is the best and I love their enchiladas too. In fact, I've never had anything I didn't like there.

After having sub-par Spanish fare a few nights before, we were loathe to try Cacique...yet many people in the area recommended this place, and they were spot on! The food (paella and fajitas) were delightful, the grease levels were low and the entrees were dairy free! A great, "off the beaten path" restaurant in a place where Italian food rules!
