We were really hungry for Mexican food! We checked the GPS and Los Caporales was the closest one near our stay. There were two of us and my friend had the "beef pulled" burrito and I had the same in pork. The service was great and the chips were far above average; however, they were served with only a small...

The food is good, the prices are good, and the service was even better. This is a good place to feed hungry teenage boys.

This food is the best you will ever eat! We've eaten here since they opened 20 years ago. I have no idea how there are any bad reviews on this sight. You'll be satisfied just with the chips and salsa. Its spectacular! The food is delicious and reasonably priced, The atmosphere is pleasant, and the service is great. We've enjoyed... More

Have eaten here several times -- Tex Mex not bad but not great. Last two times ate in the bar area and the gal there (who thinks she is God's gift) is an absolute airhead. Two visits in a row food came out wrong - not as ordered. First time I just ate what they brought out - second time... More

Typical mexican food. We go here when we want mexican food mostly because it is close to our house. The menu has all the standards and you get one basket of chips and salsa free. We've eaten burritos, quesadillas, tamales, tacos, guacamole, enchiladas and rice and beans. All the food is ok, nothing special like a fast food restaurant. So... More

We went here with family members who noticed after we arrived that they must be under new ownership because it used to be run by a Mexican family, and the people who greeted us were not. It became seriously obvious when they mentioned that the restaurant is usually quite full and we were the only patrons in the place. We... More

We used to go here to eat lunch all the time. The food was good, servers nice and fast, and your food arrived quickly. The old Los Caporales is 4 stars at least; good food, good prices, great service (with a smile even). But now... We arrived without so much as a "How are your?" Usually you have to wait... More

We gambled & ate in the casino. Scatterbrained waitress to start. Food took 35 minutes for 4& 1/2 dinners. First bite into my chicken quesadilla, and I found a BONE! Had to wait 15 minutes for the waitress came back. The rest was okay. Had to wait 15 minutes for a refill on my drink. Got our bill, got charged... More

This is their restaurant on Hwy 35, Kalispell. After reading some reviews here, we had a much better experience than expected. We currently live in Florida and previously in California, so we have a lot of experience with Mexican Restaurants. This was not the best, but probably in the top 30%. The waitress was extremely attentive and she had help... More
