Flagstaff, unfortunately, doesn't have any really great Mexican restaurants but this one comes close. If there is a better one here, I've not found it yet and I've been looking a very long time.

Last night, arrived and could not wait to stop in at El Capitan. The salsa bar was waiting for me! They very busy with a large group , but that didnt stop us from having great service! We started off with a new appetizer that is a stuffed avacado with shrimp. So so yummy -and rich- We always get the... More

If in the mood for Mexican this place is great. The food is good, restaurant is clean, staff is friendly, and prices are good. They also have happy hour prices. Our only complaint was they do not have mild taco sauce, only hot in several varieties. We do not consider pico de gallo as taco sauce. Otherwise the place is... More

Probably Americanized, but they had the best tacos I've had since the last time I was in Tiajuana. That would be summer, 1970. Also great condiment bar, with a half dozen or more choices, including the "Patron's Choice" or something much like that, very spicy and smoky, a jalapeño based selection and also a tomatillo based one. Very good, recommended.

My daughter and I had a wonderful dinner here. Be warned that their Lily margaritas are limited to 2 per person. They are fabulous! Our dinner came quickly and was very tasty. Our waiter was friendly and fun. We also had the Avocado Shrimp appetizer, WOW! My bill came to $70 for 3 people. A definite place to return to.

I can understand the wait for a table, but otherwise it took forever for our server to take our orders. And from what we observed, the restaurant wasn't that busy for a Tuesday night. Other than the service, the food was good, I had the taco salad which filled me up and the self serve salad bar is a nice... More

The restaurant is located in a very plain strip mall, but the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. We loved the guacamole appetizer. The menu had a lot of great gluten free and vegetarian offerings. The mushroom and spinach enchilada was tasty and not too cheesy. Our server was a NAU student who was friendly and gave us plenty of... More

They've remodeled. It looks great! The food and drink are yummy. The gluten free menu has many options! Don't forget to ask about the daily specials. Many are gluten free as well.

We stopped here for lunch and the fajitas were good with the freshly made guacamole and the salsas that were excellent. The chicken taco was just so so.... We were definitely stop here again when in the area.
