All food was excellent, best empanadas ever! The person that i dined with kept saying that food was so good for at least a day after. The place was very noisy but at least you know that everyone was enjoying themselves. Prices were fair and the wait and bus staff were very friendly and on top of things.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe took my boyfriend's mother out for her birthday dinner and it was great! It was a Tuesday night, so it was a bit slow, which was great! We had one on one attention and our waitress was great! She made great recommendations and the food was excellent all around.

They have a great tequila list as well. I would totally go back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mexican CuisineCaracara is absolutely the best Mexican restaraunt I have ever been too. The food is delicious, the service it great. We didn't have to wait long for our dishes and that's with the place being absolutely packed. The noise is a hit to deal with but it does not take away from the experience if enjoying your meal. The prices are perfect for every course. A definite must-go.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Good, Service Eh This TimeWe eat here regularly - this time the restaurant was very warm, service was very slow but the food as always - EXCELLENT!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good Mexican FoodThis restaurant reminded me of a California Mexican restaurant because the food was fresh, delicious, and more on the healthy side than many other Mexican places. I had the fish tacos which were lightly breaded and not greasy at all. The guacamole was made tableside by our excellent waiter. It was delicious. I compared this restaurant to another well known restaurant on LI with high quality Mexican food. The food and Sangria were just as good but the prices are more reasonable. I would definitely recommend and will return.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNew find you must visitWe were pleasantly surprised , you must dine here. Table side guacamole, food fresh and tasty. If you are looking for a good margarita -this is the restaurant for you. We are Besito fans and found this restaurant to turn ou heads and take notice. Service is very good and personable. We highly recommend.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my third visit toThis was my third visit to CaraCara. Each time it keeps exceeding the previous excellence. This restaurant is awesome! I'm just sorry I don't live in that area so I could visit every night.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodReally enjoyed the various dishes. Our party of four ordered a variety of items and no one was disappointed. Prices were reasonable and the service cordial, attentive and efficient. Only caveat was the noise level which, on a Sunday evening, was at times very distracting.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday night dinnerFood was great!

The service was wonderful and the food is amazing. Fresh ingredients and always just right.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the second year thatThis was the second year that we went here for my husband's birthday. We requested a table by the bar so that we could watch the NY Ranger's game. Table was ready and waiting for us. Waiter immediately turned on the game and we couldn't be happier. Staff is friendly, attentive and food is great. In honor of my husband's birthday they gave us a dessert on the house and after dinner drinks. I bet we will be there again next year especially if there is a NY Ranger game that night!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect every timeThis is one of our favorite neighborhood spots! We visit Caracara at least once a month. The owners and the staff are always pleasant and gracious. The ambience is warm and inviting. The food is always great! We love the blue cornmeal fried calamari, nachos and the Dos Equis braised short ribs is always a hit!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally an outstanding MexicanFinally an outstanding Mexican restaurant in Long Island! The best we have ever had! The atmosphere is cozy with a really nice bar. I also like the high top side tables in the bar area. The noise level in the dining room is kind of high. Everything is made to order and very close to what we have when we visit Mexico every year. Table side guacamole is outstanding! I have already referred numerous friends who also gave it rave reviews. Can't wait to go back again!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding! I was in theOutstanding! I was in the area on business and CaraCara was so great the first time I dined there I went back the same week and it was even better! What a find!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational! Christine madeSensational! Christine made the best "at your table" guacamole I have ever eaten. The mixtas sauce on the enchiladas was awesome. I travel to this area for business regularly and have been searching for a good Mexican restaurant. At CaraCara I found a great one!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unexpected treat. TheAn unexpected treat. The food, the ambience and the service completely exceeded our expectations. Indeed, this may be the best Mexican restaurant on LI and definitely the best one on Open Table. Oh no, don't mention Besito, which is not a Mexican restaurant as its fusion offerings are bland, gross and inedible. That is not the case at Caracara. The food was outstanding and we intend on returning in the near future.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and waitersFood was delicious and waiters were helpful and kind3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance. Better food.Had a great experience here. Service was spot on. Waitress wanted to do a good job and I could tell from previous experience as one. I had the Res Tacos from the iorn skillet and the steak was juicy and tender and I found a new love in melted chihuaha cheese. Ambiance was wonderfully romantic bordering on a Manhattan feel. Very comfortable. I had a tight table but what are you going to do?3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA must experienceEasily the best Mexican restaurant on Long Island. Food is authentic, plentiful and flavorful every time. Service is a step ahead of everyone else. Detailed and friendly. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great experience.
How can I forget the best margaritas around.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
