Horrible meal

We went here with family members who noticed after we arrived that they must be under new ownership because it used to be run by a Mexican family, and the people who greeted us were not. It became seriously obvious when they mentioned that the restaurant is usually quite full and we were the only... read more

We used to go here to eat lunch all the time. The food was good, servers nice and fast, and your food arrived quickly. The old Los Caporales is 4 stars at least; good food, good prices, great service (with a smile even). But now... We arrived without so much as a "How are your?" Usually you have to wait... More

We gambled & ate in the casino. Scatterbrained waitress to start. Food took 35 minutes for 4& 1/2 dinners. First bite into my chicken quesadilla, and I found a BONE! Had to wait 15 minutes for the waitress came back. The rest was okay. Had to wait 15 minutes for a refill on my drink. Got our bill, got charged... More

This is their restaurant on Hwy 35, Kalispell. After reading some reviews here, we had a much better experience than expected. We currently live in Florida and previously in California, so we have a lot of experience with Mexican Restaurants. This was not the best, but probably in the top 30%. The waitress was extremely attentive and she had help... More

Went to the old Los Caporales for lunch. The food was served fast and hot. You start with their home made chips and salsa, very good. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is ok. I guess the only negative, and kinda irritating to me was the server kept calls us "guys". I know it is used a lot, but being... More

Walking into the bar had a small town feel, but didn't feel Mexican at all, let alone authentic. There was a very large portion of food when it came, but hardly had a Tex Mex flavor and was far from authentic Mexican. Later on, we almost died from our own methane poisoning! I've never had such bad gas after a... More

This is a must whenever we are in the valley. We have visted this family of restaurants since they opened a number of years back and have faithfully returned. These folks have at least 3 locations around the valley and the food/service is top notch mom and pop style. We like the fajitas and the chili rellenos. The salsa is... More

Again, we used to go here quite a bit and then my daughter in law started reporting to us that the health department was not giving this business good ratings. Not very good either, we just don't have many options for Mexican food her. Now we go to Quidobas quite a bit.
