Had a chicken mole and the sauce was just okay, but the chicken was tough. Generous portions of guacamole given on request. Food was okay, but nothing special. Staff very friendly. Big portions, at a low price (someone else was paying, did hear them say that it was cheap). Would suggest to hungry budget-conscious people, but there are probably better... More

This restaurant had better find a new cook before it's too late. We dined here during prime dining hours on a Friday night. There were only 3 other tables of diners while we were there. After our food arrived, we understood why. The salsa was exceedingly bland with no kick or tomato taste. The dominant flavor was garlic. My taco... More

We stopped in Louisville for the night and weren't sure where to eat. We just sort of stumbled across this place and we loved it! The food was great, the service was wonderful, and the prices were low!

Bottom Line - Excellent Mexican Restaurant! I was traveling through the Louisville area and had stopped for the night. In looking for a place to eat, I stumbled onto El Caporal and could not have been happier. The restaurant was not very busy the night I was there, an ice storm was on the way, but I was greeted like... More

We've eaten here often, and never had a bad meal. (I'm writing this review for the one near the Sam's Club in Louisville) The service is always excellent, the margaritas delicious, and the food is always very good. Go there if you can!

Only 5 minutes from Bashford a full memu and value for your dollar. The waiter was prompt and attentive. Flan was fantastic.
