pretty decor, exceptional menu options, not the typical mexican restaurant choices, yummy margaritas!
Everything was wonderful! The food, service and ambiance. Kevin, our server, was attentive and friendly! Definitely recommend for all occasions: date night, hang outs, family gatherings, etc.
A bit pricey for Mexican food..service was great..
Great food & service!
First time in CaraCara and YOU have to go! Amazing food, and drinks. Service was delightful and made us feel welcomed, we definitely will be back again.
We were seated promptly at a perfect table for 5 in the corner. Drinks were served promptly and waiter was terrific. All food orders were correct and the food was great. Waiter realized it was a birthday and brought out the sombrero for a happy birthday singalong. All in all a terrific meal with excellent service
An excellent Mexican restaurant. Owner was there and attentive. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
Family dinner in a COVID safe place with attention to detail and fresh ingredients. Beautiful ambiance and social distance. Highly recommend!
You are warmly greeted and immediately served warm chips with tomatillos and salsa. Our server Keven was very knowledgeable to assist us in trying something new for our entrees. We loved the Nacho platter which had the freshest house made guacamole, fresh tomatoes, house made black bean,and authentic cheese, even for 4! Our picky young man loved steak quesadillas customized for him, and left nothing on his plate!
I enjoyed fresh sautéed spinach, grilled street corn and Camerones tropical and fresh and healthy with light sauce.
My husband loved marinated skirt steak, with a cheesy side, house made rice, black beans.
We were served quickly on a Saturday night but not rushed, with constant attention to service and COVID safety.
Bar service absolutely horrible. Drinks were not made correctly. Dinner tasted great.
First time- very impressed with everything. Food was outstanding, had a few cocktails with dinner and dessert that were all great. Great vibe- we’ll def be back.
Would definitely go back. Food was very good. Kevin, our waiter, was excellent.
Not happy with the food. Myself and 1 other ordered the special fish Hallibut. It was obviously precooked and tough as nails. The server was new and inexperienced so we didn’t want to bother him. It was very disappointing since my wife and I had been there before and everything was good.
Our waiter was outstanding. The food was absolutely delicious. We will be back.
We come here often for the excellent drinks and the authentic Mexican food. The service is always good and it is decorated with authentic decor.
I’ve been there before and the food was delicious, but it was not good this time. The staff was excellent
Lightning is Just a little dark for my liking
One of my favorites! Been coming for years. The staff never disappoints and food is always delicious. Carne asada is my go to!
Everything was mostly great...but the sangria was sub par. No fruit, in fact it just tasted like sweet, weak wine.
The food quality was very good! We enjoyed what we ordered (chicken tacos, chicken Quesadillas, and the mixed iron skillet tacos)
However the value/ quantity for the price was disappointing!
The $11 sangria was in a smaller glass than i recall from our previous visit and it was 3/4 ice
The guacamole was small as well (only one avocado) as was the side dishes of rice and beans
Also, at $8 the Mexican corn side dish was expensive for just 1 full cob!
I was also surprised that they did not offer more variety of tacos (eg no traditional chopped beef, steak or pork options, just chicken, shrimp and fish)
Lastly, my wife is celiac and cannot eat gluten. While there are several GF options on the menu they should offer GF nachos
I would suggest even having store bought bagged GF nachos, along with their homemade nacho chips, for those with gluten allergies at a wholesale cost so that they can enjoy a nacho platter or guacamole appetizer
Sensational tortilla soup! Perfect pollo relleno. Spot on service. Best restaurant on Long Island.
Best restaurant on Long Island. Super service! Perfect guacamole.
Food is good but not good enough to be that expensive
Forgot how much I enjoy this gem of a restaurant. I love the interior and the service and food was great
Hosted colleagues from across NYS. Everyone couldn't stop raving about the service and meal. Everything was excellent!
Food and service were great
All of the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Great food too!
Really enjoyed everything about it. It was exactly what I want out of a Mexican place. Not too quiet. Not rushed, some may say slow but my wife and I were on a date night and enjoyed not being pushed out the door. We sat at the high tops near the bar and the bartenders did a great job balancing the bar and the tables. Food and drinks were great.
Great dinner. Manager was awesome and attentive. Food was delicious and big portions. Drinks were fab. The habanero sauce was crazy hot but well worth it
Cadillac Margaritas were delicious. Service a tad slow but very pleasant. Food and drinks came out super fast, made me wonder if they were pre-made. Would recommend and go again.
Caracara is a go to when you want the real thing. Margaritas are spot on and the food is beyond the usual street taco place. Best tamales ever! The iron skillet tacos are yummy too. Plenty of room inside but we like to grab a table outside if available.
Just getting back out after COVID. Very loud and too dark.
Nothing is fresh here, you pay for fresh but you don’t get it. Go elsewhere
Food was ok ,service was average at best and inside was dark and dingy.We were hoping that this Mexican restaurant was going to be really good seeing that it was voted winner of Best of 2020 but it was just about average.
Superb ceviche followed by awesome paella. As usual, the service was outstanding. Can’t wait to visit again!
Best tableside guacamole on the planet! Superb pollo relleno. Perfect service. Can’t beat it!
Excellent. We had some picky eaters and everyone liked everything.
Best restaurant on Long Island even for lunch!
Menu offered really original food you would not ordinarily find at a typical Mexican restaurant. Everything was really outstanding. We will definitely be returning!
The food is always delicious and fresh and I asked the chef to alter my dish and he9
Food was amazing !! So was the service i can’t wait to go back !
