Most families have a “go to” restaurant, or a few favorites that they regularly visit. When my whole family gets together that restaurant is Caciques in downtown Frederick, Maryland.
Why We Love Caciques
Caciques has something that everyone in the family will like. Their menu options cover all Spanish and Mexican cuisines. My family also loves Caciques because of the atmosphere. We have been having family dinners there for over five years. The wait staff is always friendly and they get to know their customers and remember them each time they come in. Another great thing is that Caciques never has any trouble accommodating a larger party. It is always best to make a reservation for large parties though, especially on the weekends.
What you probably really want to know about is the food! Appetizers, Fajitas, traditional Spanish Cuisine, and Mexican favorites are all covered on the menu. Complementary chips and salsa are always brought to your table when you sit down. The salsa is delicious!
My family usually likes to start out our meal with the Cacique Dip Delight as an appetizer. It is a blend of queso dip, guacamole, and pico de gallo. Yum!
Here are some of my family’s favorite meals:
Plato Mayo – One chicken burrito and one cheese enchilada (so cheesy!) with Spanish rice and refried beans.
House Special Trio – Shrimp, Scallops, and Filet Mignon, served with a side of white rice and black beans.
Fajitas – Always come out sizzling!
Seafood Enchiladas – Sorry, I started eating before I remembered to take a picture.
Chile Rellenos – Poblano peppers stuffed with choice of meat and cheese, dipped in batter and fried.
There are so many delicious meals at Caciques, it is hard to choose a favorite!
Don’t Forget the Drinks!
My favorite drink at Caciques is always their Sangria! It is homemade and delicious. Every now and then I opt for a margarita on the rocks, or I do their combination of sangria and margarita known as the Sangrita. They also have some delicious looking frozen margaritas and daiquiris. For the beer drinkers, they have beers on tap as well as in bottles. They have a great happy hour Monday through Friday at the bar from 4pm-7pm. It includes discounted drinks and food!
Next time you are in downtown Frederick, MD stop in at Caciques for lunch or dinner. The delicious food and drinks will please the whole family!
