“Warning - may never want to try Mexican food again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

The best thing about this place is that it was hard to find. Unfortunately we did...hope you don't so you don't have to experience this mess.

We both love Mexican food and couldn't wait to eat it on our trip to Arizona. Service was good but it couldn't save the experience. Absolutely the WORST Mexican food we have ever had. Would normally suggest to drown out the taste with Margaritas, but the drink was even worse than the food. So watered down that you would drown before you would get a "buzz".

Left restaurant so distraught that we are hesitant to try Mexican food ever again.

A very nice mexican grill/bar. Happy hour was from 2 to 6pm, kinda too early. Good food and good service. Would like to go again soon.

“Convenient and stays open late”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

It's okay. Looks like a watering hole for college age kids. We were passing through Flagstaff and were lucky enough to get a room as we had no reservations. El Capitan was recommended because the one trip advisor had listed as number 1 was no longer open. It's a little better that drive through-at least your out of the car.

“Near motels and campus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The food and atmosphere were great, neat and clean, did not see any critters. Menu has good selection, and the wait staff are knowledgeable about menu, staff appears to be mostly college students, as NAU is very close by. Reasonable prices, and decent Maragritas!
