Great burgers. Visited on a Monday so the special for the day was chicken salad. I had a pork tenderloin, but many of the group had the chicken salad or a burger. Food is reasonably priced and the taste is good. Wait staff is friendly and efficient.

I know you come here for the burgers, and we did, but the tater tots are really good, too. Service was excellent, the burgers cooked just like we ordered them and the tots tongue burning hot.

Food was ok, but service was just horrible. Yes, they were busy, as usual, but no silverware, no drink refills, no dirty dishes removed, never checked on us, never smiled. Server should really consider a different line of work. 10 min waiting for check.

The burgers are good the grilled cheese is what you can honestly make at home; seriously, the fries are a la carte and for what they charge you and what they give you is not worth it. No refills on sodas. They charge you for water with lemon and that is just wrong. I wasn't thrilled with it, and not... More

Honestly, I've probably had like over 3,000 burgers because I'm just fat and gluttonous, but this place is amazing! I just got a normal cheeseburger with extra pickles (which turned out to be super long pickles) and fries. The burger was not only huge but it was well priced too at about $7. I love this place, I live about... More

I returned to El Cap the other day after a 30 year gap. The first time I visited the place, coming from the UK and also first visit to a Sports Bar in the US, I was amazed that it was possible to be served such wonderful burgers. Since that day, I've always used El Cap burgers as the bench... More
