Their shrimp tacos are supreme, even ordering the ala cart will fill you up. Service can be hit or miss, but the tacos are to die for!!

The food is delicious. However, they would do well to hire a waitress or two to wait tables and improve their service. Overall, as "locals" we find their service to be lacking most of the time. I doubt that we're go there again for that reason.

If you like Meditarranean type food it is good and the atmosphere is warm however, they only serve wine which may disappoint some people..

We saw the sign advertising fish tacos and decided to give this restaurant a try. My husband ordered the Jambalaya, and I ordered the fish tacos (ala carte). We both ate only part of our meals, even though they were delicious. I was amazed to find 4 choices of ginger beer on the menu. I ordered the spicy one and... More

Great food and they do take-out also. I had the pork burrito, which was good but very different flavors than you would expect.

This is a good, quiet place with good Carribean food and atmosphere. The service was a bit slow but very friendly.

I had fish tacos and the fish was great, not deep fried. The bartender was very friendly and the overall the serine was great. We will definitely... More

The food is great. We had the curry shrimp burrito and the curry noodles with chicken. Both were fantastic. Who ever thought of a thai burrito? But it works in a big way. The atmosphere is very nice. You would never think you were a stones throw from the freeway. I would have given 5 stars but the service lived... More

This place was recommended by a family member. We went although the reviews weren't that good as of late. We should have listened to the reviews. The service was terrible! The food was alright. One person in our party ordered fish and it was undercooked. Waitress was lazy, and not very friendly. Didn't seem like she wanted to be there.

I have been to Joe Caribe's for the fish tacos more times than I can count. They're always good - it's the island slaw that makes it better than other fish tacos I've had. While I'm not usually a bread pudding fan, theirs is yummy. Not too gooey with just enough sweetness to finish the meal.
