Two friends who live in Big Fork and I had lunch here my friends said that this is their favorite Mexican restaurant in the area and I also think it is very good. I had the pork chili verde burrito and my friends had the carne azada burrito and the cheese enchilada respectively. I think that my burrito was very... More

Chips and salsa were palatable. Lemonade was barely more than iced water with a hint of citrus. The $10 margarita from a mix was a huge disappointment. It only takes a bit more effort to whip up fresh margarita blends are the results can be outstanding. We ordered small combination plates. Hubby could not finish the deluxe chicken enchilada. My...

The weather was very pleasant and we decided to eat outside on the deck. Unfortunately, the street traffic was extremely distracting. Chips and salsa were served, but our order of water and beverages were not. Also, we didn't get any silverware or napkins. We ordered our food, still nothing to wash down the chips or wipe the salsa from our... More

We discovered this Mexican food restaurant on a search for a good place to eat in Kalispell when were visiting for a day. I grew up eating Mexican food in Texas and this place did not disappoint. It has the best Mexican food! The waitress was very friendly and the food was served in a timely manner considering we had... More

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.

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
