This restaurant is located in a small strip mall, along with another, larger tavern. I'm guessing parking could be an issue in the evening. We arrived about 1 on a Saturday afternoon. A soccer game was going on the bar tv's. We had a good lunch menu to chose our meals from. We were promptly seated and received water, chips... More

Go there sometimes once a week. I always ask for black beans, thinking they are healthier. Chipolte enchiladas are addictive.

If you are looking for Mexican food in Bend than El Caporal has it. It is the BEST Mexican Restaurant in Bend. Great menu, lots of items to chose from. The service is fast and your food comes out hot. I would eat at El Caporal every time I come to Bend.

We sat at the bar, chips, salsa and water were immediately delivered. Chips and salsa were tasty! We ordered drinks from that bartender, he was more interested in watching soccer and fussing at the staff than doing anything else. I know some Spanish, I got the gist of it. We had to order food from another waiter, who was nothing... More

Lots of things to like about El Caporal. We visited there tonight and again found very friendly staff. We were seated quickly and even though it was a busy night we received good service. Lots of things to like on the menu and good beer including some local microbrews. Large portions and we like to order the #11 Three Chicken... More

After moving to Oregon from California, we were finding it a challenge to find nice and good and spicy Mexican food. This establishment had it!! Good enchilada sauce, and nice and spicy salsa. Margaritas were nice and strong, and the staff very friendly and amiable.

For a great Mexican meal, this is the place to eat at! The service was very good, and the menu had so many selections to choose from. We did not have to wait long for our dinners, and the portions were HUGE! Loved the salsa that was included with our meal. The prices were very good, and we will come... More
