Review №1

A little secret gem! The food was authentic and really good. Torts were amazing both flour an corn. Kept thanking my wife for find this spot.

Review №2

Caracheos is a great little neighborhood restaurant. It's been here for years but my husband and l decided to try it today. We got breakfast tacos and they did not disappoint. They have a very big nenu and serve jarritos and agua frescas here. I misspelled a lot in this review but everything was sooooo good

Review №3

Mexican food, mmm, super tasty. There was quick and friendly service. Prices are reasonable I would say.

Review №4

For the prices, this place is pretty damn good. It gets packed quick.

Review №5

Found hairs in my enchiladas (yes, multiple) . Luckily I informed the staff and they tried to get me to order something else, but I honestly lost my appetite.... Becareful coming here. My husband's plate was okay and he shared his food with our baby.. rice was burnt

Review №6

Great food at good prices. We are regularly visiting for breakfast and lunch.

Review №7

Amazing tacos the best I've ever had in my life

Review №8

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Family owned and operated business.

Review №9

I'd give them more stars if I could! Had the puffy taco plate- delish!! The tortillas are so gooood! The waitress was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back again!!

Review №10

Food is always great, staff is wonderful, salsa is on point. My second favorite mexican restaurant

Review №11

Great place to to eat. Awesome service provided by Porfiria and you better be hungry. Plates overflow with food. The tacos may as well be burritos Loved it!! Definitely coming back when I'm in the area!!

Review №12

Great Tacos, Very nice staff.

Review №13

It's a good restaurant, the only downside is that it needs to be seriously remodeled, seats are torn up a bit, ceiling is extremly dirty, there is built up dust on the vents and ceiling fans and the bathrooms are themselves consistent with the rest of the place. However, the food itself is delicious and their green salsa is the perfect amount of spicy. The staff is also friendly and attentive. I give it 4 stars because at the of the day the food is what matters to most people but if you are afraid of contamination or getting sick then you can bet that the kitchen is also consistent with the lack of upkeep for the restaurant. But the food is key and I'd probably go there again.

Review №14

They have amazing tacos! Affordable all while being yummy. They have a perfect amount of choices. Staff is also nice!

Review №15

I always get asada tacos, they're always really good !!!

Review №16

First time getting breakfast tacos last Sunday and i was sick for 2 days. I went there due to the high rating but never again..

Review №17

Hard to believe when people say a place is their favorite spot for Mexican in a town like San Antonio. Those type of reviews leave me with unfulfilled expectations. This did not happen today. This place is the real deal! Homemade tortillas that could have been made in my Grandmama's kitchen. Tacos were universally great! I had Carne Guisada and that taco alone was reason to come back. One of my party got a burger. You know how those typically turn out at a place like this. Well, it was great. "Like it had just come off the backyard grill." Tortilla soup was wonderful as well. Plan to return, tomorrow.

Review №18

The tacos here are very fresh and filling. Just a hair on the pricey side but still worth it. Also the employees are very friendly.

Review №19

Good food. The staff are nice and polite went there for breakfast tacos this morning and it seemed kind of pricey for the country potato. It was pretty much a hot dog with potatoes on a tortilla. Could have saved the money and made it myself at home

Review №20

Being going to this place for almost 10 years. So yummmmmy

Review №21

Basically if I can give it 9 out of 10 would be more proper score food was good service was good I would recommend it

Review №22

Review №23

Review №24

Best Carnitas Breakfast tacos. Janie, Gabi are perfect waitress. You always feel welcomed. Food always hot and good

Review №25

I have been going to Caracheos for years now, and i love this place so much, the people that work there are the best servers, the owner opened up for a birthday party for my best friend and family and friends, just down from McAuther High School, the young people from the school are always frequently going to this establishment, its just a wonderful family Mexican Food place for anyone and everyone, if you go there sometime you will be sure to go back . the food is the best, the people are the best, just the best kof the best. Thank you Caracheos for being above and beyond in the the Family Food service. God Bless

Review №26

The food is good if you feel like waiting for slow-moving waitresses. They walk around like they dont want to work there.

Review №27

The best taco place in San Antonio, I used to come here all the time when I was in high school, now that I moved to Boerne I still come every Sunday for their Barbacoa tacos and limonada.

Review №28

Nice little Mexican restaurant. I had a breakfast meal. The staff was very nice. The food was good. I would eat here again.

Review №34

We just discovered this place recently but everything so far is good. The carne asada burrito I had was really good.

Review №35

It is as an ill-fated visit. Of the 4 people on the party, only one was completely satisfied with her meal and she had the pancakes. The rest was kind of a debacle. You live and learn.

Review №36

Very friendly and fast service. Food was delicious!!!

Review №37

5 stars Hands Down! This is one of my top 3 hidden gems in San Antonio!! Family Owned and Operated. I have developed an amazing relationship with this restaurant! Do yourself a favor and take the drive to enjoy Caracheo's!

Excellent food! Excellent service!!! I have going here since I was 3 years old! It's been 10 years now and i still love this place

Review №43

Service was AWESOME but food was bad! The Beef Fajitas are boiled in water and have to flavor and the Chicken were so dry i couldn't eat them. The Rice was bland and the beans lacked flavor as well. The Enchiladas were awesome but that's about it.

Review №44

Hole in the wall. Must try!!!

Review №45

Small Place, inexpensive, Good Food, quick and friendly service. No Drive Thru. Near school zone, becareful of kids.

Review №46

Came across this place today. The food was pretty good the wait staff was very nice and attentive. I had the daily speacial chili con carne enchiladas, a carnitas taco and the Caracheo's appetizer. Turns out that is a tremendous amount of food!! The appetizer was good, nothing bad on there. The carnitas were very overcooked but still had plenty of flavor and the chili con carne enchiladas were good.

Review №47

Caracheo's is a hidden gem. All of their menu items are delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff is always friendly and will always go out of their way to help you. Whether you are ordering bean and cheese tacos premium crispy tripa tacos, everything is AMAZING!!!

Review №48

A good place to have a quick meal. With a friendly staff that will bring your food out to you promptly. It reminds me when I was a young child eating at my grandma's, the tortillas soft and warm taste exactly what I remember in my childhood. If you are in the neighborhood and wanting a delicious Mexican meal give this place a try.

Review №66

Great service, great prices. Been great for the past 7 yrs I been going.

Review №67

Great service, good food. Would probably give 4.5, if I could, as the food was just a little salty and the tortillas a little thicker than I prefer, but these are small issues. Overall, this is an authentic neighborhood joint that I would recommend.

Review №68

Good service, clean and good food. we will definitely go back.

Review №69

Great food fast service

Review №70

LOVE the food here. My office is just up the block from them and I have tried a plethora of items on their menu.I'm a big fan of their burritos (they're huge), and their breakfast tacos are awesome!Plan to wait a little (usually), but know that the wait is worth it!

Review №71

Reasonably fast service, especially during rush hour. Clean dinning area, and importantly, good tasting food!

Review №72

The service is excellent. The place is not that great but the food is excellent.

Review №73

When the locals take you to a taco place in San Antonio, you know it's good.

Review №74

Love this place. Janie at the front treats you like family. Waitresses are fast and friendly. I have yet to eat one bad thing here. Prices are very reasonable. It's crowded during the week mornings because of the MacArthur High School students but they get through them fast. Lunch has great options also.

Review №75

Flour tortillas misshaped, bacon burnt and hard. Only good thing was salsa with chips and friendly waitress. Otherwise will not come back.

Review №76

Work provided breakfast for us.. Great tacos, barbacoa was delicious

Review №77

Would be 5 stars if the chile and drinks were better. The sweetbread is amazing! Overall great food and service!!

Review №78

Review №79

Great food. Great service

Review №80

Great Place. I've never been more satisfied with Tacos anywhere else in San Antonio. This is hands down the best place to get Mexican food. Truly authentic and the people are very polite and helpful.

Review №81

I go here for the menudo. Hands down the best in San Antonio, at least for me. It has real traditional taste and the corn tortillas are hand made. Great touch.

Review №82

Not much to look at from the inside but good food and great service. We'll be back.

Review №83

Good tacos but they burned the pancakes I order bad and one of my friends tacos was very greasy, so I give it a 3 star

Review №84

Excellent steak ranchero lunch plate.

Review №85

Great food and an even better price with friendly and quick service.

Review №86

Asked for a Migas plate with egg whites only. Well eggs still raw when Porfiria( server) brought plate out. Send it back, was redone brought back out and full of grease. To top it of I grabbed the flour tortilla and long strand of hair stuck inside tortilla. I did not even attempt to eat my food. Called the served showed her, she took the plate back to kitchen, and just came back apologizing. She was nice. Payed for my coffee which was decent tipped the lady $5.00. And left. I will never be back.

Review №87

Only the second time I've eaten seafood here. I had a tilapia & a shrimp taco. Both were delicious! Well seasoned. I think there was a whole filet of tilapia one the one taco. And counted 6 medium-large shrimp on the other. More then worth the cost!

Review №88

Excellent staff. Reminds me of going over to eat with my family.

Review №89

Great food and prices, use to go to the one on walzem till they closed. Just dont go during school hours, it can get packed

Review №90

Nice , just like the t.v. series cheers where everybody knows your name

Review №91

This place is amazing. I work as the Internet Marketing Specialist at Southwest Exteriors and Renewal By Andersen Windows of San Antonio. Every month we have a team meeting and the meeting is catered by Caracheo's. We have tons of different breakfast tacos and they are awesome. I love the food. It is the best. Thank you for amazing service and great food. I will continue to eat your tacos. The flavors of the Mexicana taco was so good. Keep up the good work. The tacos are consistent and tasty. Even when they are made in large batches for our meetings.

Review №92

Got salsa spilled all over my friend and I from the buss boy and mole enchiladas were disgusting didn't touch it after the first bite and they could care less to help or even ask if it was good or not DIDNT even ask for a box to go because they can tell I didn't like it! Hell no never again!!!

Review №93

Good breakfast but horrible wait tume

Review №94

Best Mexican food in San Antonio and superb service

Review №95

This is my absolute favorite place for delicious Tex-Mex. The roasted salsa with warm chips can't be beat. The daily lunch specials are priced at $5.99 and comes with a Tea (not on Saturday's or Sunday's) ! The friendly staff, delicious food, and great prices make this clean, hole-in-the-wall restaurant one of San Antonio's best kept secrets. They're open for breakfast and lunch.

Review №96

The food is always good here

Review №97

Nice place to have a regular Mexican dinner, their burgers was really good.
