We love this restaurant, specifically for some of the dishes that we get pretty much every time (or at least someone at our table gets). The Carne Asada is s guaranteed hit, and comes with boniato, which is far and away the best side--we don't know how they do it but it's so creamy and amazing--the texture and color of... More

Went here for a date night and was very disappointed. To start off the guacamole was too salty and not worth the $10 although the I enjoyed the salsa. I ordered the short rib which was very chewy. My husband ordered carne asada and wasn't impresses. Each entree was about $25. We also had the empanada of the day and... More

I was at the restaurant last weekend with 8 people. The restaurant was very busy so that meant very noisey and the waiter was overly attentive. We were constantly bothered for apps, drinks and orders. The food was not real mexican to my liking. We ordered spicey guac but we got regular guac. The chilli reno was not cooked and... More

Went to celebrate the brides birthday with another couple looking to change it up a bit with regards to our Mexican restaurant selections. Seated promptly, the main dining room was very crowded and very noisy. Not a good place to hold a conversation The lighting was a bit strange as well. It kept fluctuating between din and bright without much... More

Went with 3 other couples. Restaurant was packed. Tableside guacamole was yummy, as were the nachos. Entrees ranged from enchiladas to salmon to steak. All were excellent. Would recommend.

My husband and I have eaten there three times now and are very excited to have found a very good Mexican restaurant near the American Airpower Museum where we spend a lot of time. The food is plentiful, well seasoned and cooked very well. In addition the staff is attentive, pleasant and on top of their game. The table side... More

We went on a Friday night. It was busy and loud in the main restaurant due to several large parties. We chose to sit at a high top in the bar. The waiter was attentive and even gave me a sample of the mole poblano because I was worried about the heat/spice level. It was delicious! We ordered queso fundido... More

Everything about Caracara was spot on. From the nachos to the desserts, I enjoyed it all. Attentive, but not "hawkish" service, interesting decor, and not overly priced. Great spot!

The food is very consistent .... dishes are freshly made and seasoned well. It's one of my go-to places for brunch on Sundays and often during the month. Would highly recommend CaraCara.

Caracara is a nice restaurant and the food is good just way more than Mexican food should be. If it was better priced would go more often.
