The exterior of the building is a coy plan. It is the first reasonable looking place one sees for a while, so it lures the unwary who arrive at Capitan feeling peckish. The interior seemed nice until the ice tea arrived. They committed the great travesty of serving powered mix and even put in crushed ice so there could be no mistaking the cloudy murk. Then we got our order and things went from bad to worse. The silverware was dirty. The "nachos" was a handful of chips with a small toss of shredded cheese backed into them. The enchiladas were basically really spicy taco soup, with raw corn tortillas and more lettuce than meat. The portions were so small that even though it was awful, we felt annoyed. The bill was the final blow: 34.50.
Where it got even worse was finding out there was a festival going on in Lincoln, with food trucks and everything.
Never eat at the El Paisan. It's a trap.
