Farmingdale's Caracara Called 'Friendly, Spirited Restaurant That Aims to Please'

A recent New York Times review chronicles a dining experience at the new Farmingdale spot.

New York Times dining section writer Joanne Starkey recently made a visit to Main Street's newest Mexican restaurant, and she was satisfied with her experience.

The review ran on Friday and talks about the atmosphere of the restaurant, some favorable entrees and the background of the owners and chef.

"We’re thrilled to be on Main Street in Farmingdale," co-owner Tony Kathreptis told Patch in a . "We did look at many other sites on the North Shore and South Shore, Hempstead Turnpike, and even Queens but we chose Farmingdale due to its history and reputation, and to fulfill a niche that didn’t exist."

The owners recently hosted and hope the restaurant will become a signature of the community.

"It’s been nice to hire local people to work at our restaurant," Kathreptis said.

"We’re very hopeful, too, with the building of a new hotel nearby that will attract a lot of business," said co-owner. Peter Rousakis. "And we might add live music in the future."

Overpriced. Also greedy to add a 1.00 to half price apps to your happy hour customers. Sounds silly when I hear the bartender keep saying happy hour specials include 1/2 price apps plus a dollar. And your prices are ridiculous. 4 tacos for $18? Everyone, go to Chichimecas. I have known the owner for years from going to his other establishments. Quality is great, prices are better and they know how to take care of you
