“Good but it's LA”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Dont get me wrong, this place isnt bad at all. I like the food here but the there are so many Mexican restaurants in this area. If this were outside of SoCal, it would be 4 or a 5. Rice/ beans with the usual entree.

“just okay”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Fast service. Restaurant is clean. The salsa was really delish. The cops with them were not great. Maybe over fried and too crispy.but they fill up the salsa and waters frequently. Portions were large and tasty. Kid loved the tracks even though they were shredded beef. Fast and inexpensive. Would go again.

“Mexican Restaurant - Fantastico”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Our Family goes to LaCapilla at least twice a month. They have great service, yummy margaritas and Mexican food that is savory. The serving size is a good amount of food and we always leave with a full belly. The price is affordable and the food never disappoints.

“Good, Old Time Favorite”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

La Capilla is a good Mexican restaurant that has been around forever. It is always busy. The food is good, dependable. There are no surprises. The location is great in old town. The restaurant is dark and noisy. The service is good. The margaritas are really good. We started with Mexican shrimp cocktails with lots of shrimp. I had the chicken chimichanga. It was big and tasty. Others had the flautas and combination plates. It is not knock your socks off great, but dependable. You won't get a bad meal.
