“This Place is Really Great!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This location used to be the McGrath's Fish House a while back, but now it is Caballero's. It is an American cuisine, so you will find an eclectic set of choices that are sure to please everyone.

I highly recommend the top sirloin entree, because it was so very well put together. The grilled asparagus is sure to delight. They have a great selection of drinks and wine too, so your meal will really taste well. I am not sure why it is named Caballero's, as it does not really have a Southwestern / Mexican theme, but the food is great nonetheless. This is one of my favorites that is close to home.

“Dinner”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We dined at Caballero on Saturday night Dec 1st 2012. It was the best! The food was excellent! The service exceptional! The atmosphere enticing! Our server Conrad was the best. He made our experience terrific. We loved it so much we bought a gift card to come back at a later date. If you haven't been to Caballero you are totally missing out!!

“american grill with a little southwest”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Had the wahoo fish which was grilled just right, the carne adavada had a flare with chile, queso and soft tortillas and was good, the 8 oz sirloin was very dry, if you like medium ask for medium rare, was seared in a spicy tomato sauce, never got any sauce or juice on the plate, very dry. This steak was hard to cut and did not come with the portabellos as listed on the menu. However the grilled zuccini was really good as was the cilantro rice.If you go there try a salad or sandwich which were plenty of on the menu. The black and red menu was hard to read in the dim lighting. Waitress was semi knowledgable and did not know the difference between deep fried ,baked or grilled. Refills were not easy to come by. Have 2 dining rooms only 1 used, very empty.No one at the front podium when we left to say thanks or good by or even welcome diners.If they step it up and it could be good.

“Welcome to caballero`s”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The minute you walk in you can smell the aroma of something GOOD cooking in the back.
The restaurant has a warm and homey feel to it inside,and plenty of patio outside.The menu had
a good enough variety for lunch,portioned just right.Top sirloin was very tasty,so was the pork sandwich(sauce had just the right "kick" to it).
We know we will be coming back,it`s good to have a good restaurant in the west valley.
On our visit we noticed no desserts.....maybe our timing was off!

“Comfortable place, Ceviche Bar was good!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Caballero's was enjoyable in a very comfortable atmosphere with good service. Definitely have to commend our server as she was extremely attentive and positive, guiding us to good items on the menu to eat on our first trip there. Of particular note was the Ceviche Bar, which was a good portion for the 4 of us in our party to split as an appetizer. It was very flavorful and fresh. As far as our entrees went, the food was good. The burger, which I got, I would categorize as good, but not outstanding. Some of the other food looked amazing, however, including the salmon special they were advertising.

Its a good spot, with a pretty decent happy hour deal as well, that we will consider for a place to eat a little nicer meal without having to travel away from the Goodyear area.
