Another good meal

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants on the East side. Not fancy or touristy, mostly locals eat here. It can be busy especially mid week between 5 and 6:30, but opens up after that. Favorite dishes are the polo ala crema, chicken enchiladas, the carne pot roast and vegetables was... read more

Large menu and generous portions, moderately expensive. Food is good and very tasty though not what I consider real Mexican Food. Portions are generous and the service is always good. The atmosphere is typical Mexican folk art and the booths are quite tight for an average person. Always consistent and fairly good. Probably the closest thing to Mexican Food you... More

We have been searching for good Mexican food in Bend and decided to give this place a try, based on the good reviews-big mistake. We went on a weeknight, and though it wasn't crowded, our service was ridiculously slow. It seemed that the only patrons actually getting any service were those buying cocktails. Chips and salsa finally arrived, and we... More

We come here for dinner often. We enjoy the variety that the menu offers. Tonight was exceptionally busy and we were worried that service would be slow, but we had great service. We were seated quickly. We were given water and chips right away and shortly thereafter our order was taken. The food was good we had the chicken enchiladas... More

Salsa is so great that every so often I pay to bring home some. Service is very good and so is the food at a reasonable price.

I have eaten here off and on over the tears, but always come back for and am never disappointed in their shrimp dinners. The plates of food are large enough for two meals.

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.
