“Not What We Expected from Burr Ridge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Last Friday my wife and I decided to use a Groupn for the Capri Mex restaurant in Burr Ridge, Illinois. I have been by there several times but never went in until recently. What a disappointment! We felt like we were in somebodys basement versus a Mexican restaurant. The food selections were extremely limited. However, the portions were substantial. Very dark inside and not much room between tables. A small bar area at the rear of the place held room for only about 4-5 stools. Our waiter was nice and attentive. The food was hot when it arrived and pretty good as well. This was not our best choice for dining and it will be unlikely we will return.

“Fresh”

We enjoyed our meals at Capri Mex. Service was excellent! Also, the chicken tortilla soup was a nice touch.

“Worth the wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We went to Capri Mex on one of the last days for a Groupon coupon. We knew it would be crowded so of course we had to wait in line. What we did not understand was as patrons left and they cleaned off their tables why not take the next group in line? Nobody ever ackowledged people in line. When we were finally seated there were four tables available. The waiter complained about never using Groupon again. They brought us plenty of chips and salsa. Salsa was in a plastic cup. I ordered a margarita which was quite good except it was served in a plastic cup with no salt around the rim. Now the food. I ordered a taco dinner with chicken, pork and steak. The steak and pork were excellant. The chickan was quite dry. The beans were a little mushy. My wife ordered a pork enchilada dinner. It was good. We would never have traveled this far to try this restaurant without a coupon. With all the great Mexican restaurants around we will probably not be back.
