While the food is pretty good the price is too high. I have to assume they are following the trend of charging high prices because the tourists from California expect it. Not very authentic Mexican...more LA MEX.

We have been coming to Pacific city for 8 years and we somehow missed this wonderful family owned restaurant but not any more. Not fancy looking from the outside but warm and friendly on the inside. One of the owners sons was our server and he was lots of fun as well as knowing all about the food and the... More

For a very small coastal town, you won't believe what a great meal you will receive. Family run restaurant, fun to have a birthday and a great value. Very good Mexican food menu and quality food.

On a recent trip down the coast of Oregon, we had a two night stay in Pacific City. As great lovers of good and authentic Mexican food, we always seek out a towns offering of such fare. Many times we are left very disappointed and other times very pleasantly surprised. Happily Los Caporales was a very wonderful discovery. First impression... More

There's no skimping on the food or drinks here. A family-run business with enthusiastic, knowledgable and friendly service. Fresh chiles in the chili relleno and lots of tequila in the margaritas. We'll be back.

I don't understand the great reviews, the food was horribly bland and mostly shredded lettuce. Yes the wait staff is nice but this was easily one of the worst meals I've eaten. Maybe all those great margaritas make the food taste better? When the cashier asked how we liked our meal I was honest in telling him we were not... More

We go to Pacific City regularly. Our first stop into town and last stop on way out is always this Mexican restaurant. Tortilla soup is fabulous.......so are the chalupas and Chile rellenos. I can never get enough of this food!! A terrific family owned business - and the staff is always very pleasant with big smiles.

Our group of ten showed up on a Friday night without a reservation. It took a while but they were able to accommodate us. The carne asada way tasty as were the Cadillac Margaritas. They even grilled up some jalapeños for us. Closed on Tuesdays and only open until 9, so plan ahead if you want to try the place.
