Great location. Tacos and food is pretty decent, great deals on taco tuesday. Delicious pico, salsa and chips. Love sitting outside. Friendly cashier and workers.

Not date night ambiance. Kind of deli meats Mexican. The fajitas were great but my husband didn't like his burrito. Also that primo margarita was strong and delicious. Oh skip the savicha, it was sweet and had way too much cucumber

Good food. As far as customer service horrible. A worker was ver rude on the phone and when I picked up my food they did not greet me.

If Taco Bell sold chilaquiles, they would out sell this place. For a "Mexican" restaurant it's not even close to how food should be. A waste of money, should be embarrassed to serve what they do. They literally warmed up tortillas cut them in half, half, threw them on a plate and splashed "sauce" ! Like wow!! So disappointed!! I HAD to give this a star in order to post my review it if actually would want to be paid for putting in the time to warn others.

Great Service, staff is extremely friendly. Love going to a place where employees actually smile. The mini chimis are great. We ordered two #18s, an order of beef and chicken. Mexican Pizza can easily be shared between two. Overall great lunch spot for Mexican food with quick service.

This is hands down THE BEST restaurant in all of Arizona!!! I don't care what anyone says... you cannot spend $12 on two drinks ANYWHERE and have a buzz and enjoy a night out quite the same as CARAMBAS!!! The food is great as well! Order an El Dorado Taco "Crispy" with Carne Asada and you will never order another meal anywhere in AZ. The atmosphere is very chill in the bar area and my wife and I can kill a few hours just relaxing and talking. Steven, Danielle, Tim and Veronica are all the best people you could meet too. We really love this place and will forever be customers. With that said... the Margaritas are hands down the best margaritas you can get in the USA. PERIOD! We've never found a better tasting margarita ANYWHERE. Best restaurant EVER.

Went there based on the reviews. The location we went to was clean as promised. And the staff were fine. But the food was just meh. Kinda bland. I don't often leave food on my plate but this time I definitely left food behind.

Stopped in on a whim with a friend while in the area. Place is clean and staff is friendly. I enjoyed the nachos and they had tons topping and chicken. Another thing I loved was the salsa bar.


I was staying nearby and wanted a quick meal with outdoor seating that was within walking distance of my hotel, and Caramba met all of those requirements. My friend and I ate here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. This is a quick service restaurant where you place your order at the counter, they fix it, and you pick it up when it's ready, carry it to your table of choice, and clean up after yourselves. They also have a bar that was very popular! We were happy to see a large outdoor patio with plenty of seating, since we prefer not to dine indoors due to COVID. The outdoor seating was partially covered and while no-frills, it was clean. The menu board was a little confusing, and almost everything is served a la carte. It's not cheap, especially for Mexican food, and tacos range from $4 - $6 EACH. Between the two of us, my friend and I ordered a carne asada taco, a grilled shrimp taco, a low carb asada plate, cheese enchiladas, and we got an order of guacamole and a Mexican pizza to share. Look, we like to try different stuff when we go to a new restaurant. All of this food, and it was a ridiculous feast, set us back about $40. We didn't expect the portion sizes to be so big! The tacos are loaded with meat! My asada taco was overflowing. The meat was lightly seasoned and not greasy, which I really enjoyed. The grilled shrimp taco wasn't as good. At a close to $6 menu price, this was a ripoff. There were only a few shrimp, and they were so undercooked that I only ate a couple of them. My friend said her enchiladas were good. The guacamole was barely acceptable. It had that weird olive sort of taste to it, and I prefer more standard guac with nothing but avocados, salt, onion, cilantro, and limes. I would not get the guacamole again. The Mexican pizza was the star! It was far larger than we expected, and was about the size of a medium pizza! The base was a crispy oven cooked flour tortilla that was loaded with cheese, sour cream, olives, green onions, and chicken. The chicken was gross, shredded dark meat, so we picked it off. I would order this again, but I recommend you get it plain and then add salsa to it. The food was good and mostly healthy. They claim to specialize in freshness, with their salsa prepared daily, fresh not frozen meats, and made to order dishes. They had a lot of low carb, low calorie, and vegan (no lard) menu items. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but I'd come back for the Mexican pizza.

Parking is limited, but food was great. Fresh but a little slow service. Close to lots of other restaurants and shopping. Better than fair menu, tasty.

The burrito bowl w/pork carnitas was superb! As was my stuffed poblano. The salsa bar is not to be missed & make sure you get some of the spicy pickled veggies. The margaritas are a bit sweet for me, but still very good. Do yourself a favor, visit CARAMBAS.


Our go-to spot for Tuesday Tacos! Staff is kind and the food is delicious! Love the salsa bar too and the variety of selections.
