“Great food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This was a short walk from the Best Western and recommended by the front desk person. The prices were good, the service was good and the food was very good. I had enchiladas and they were some of the best I've had. My husband had Molcajate which he liked. The salsa had a bite to it but the beans that come with the chips were a little bland. If I lived there I would be eating there a lot.

“Best in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you have a chance to stop here, DO IT! It is an easy access location right off the interstate in a town that is located in the "middle of nowhere." I am not a big fan of Mexican food (I'm a baby when it comes to spicy food!) but El Caporal is FABULOUS! The service has always been great, the food is wonderful! Large portions for a good price, and unlimited chips and salsa. The atmosphere is authentic and friendly, and your food gets served in a timely manner. The only concern? Watch out! The plates are hot!!

“Fantastic food, great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

A gem just off the highway as we were driving from Jackson, WY to Boise ID. The food was spicy and flavorful, the beer cold. The meal was served promptly and was piping hot. Great value for money, wonderful meal.

“Great stop on road trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stopped on a road trip after the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. It was lunch time, and there was a good size lunch crowd. We didn't have to wait to be seated and the food came out really fast and piping hot! All of our lunches were excellent as were the chips and salsa that came before the meal. It was really good!
