“Mexican Hot Spot”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

A full parking lot and lots of locals made a positive impression before entering. The food was generously portioned and very tasty standard Mexican fare. Excellent service.

“Food was OK service was great”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Typical mexican food. It wasn't spectacular but wasnt terrible either. You get one bowl of chips and salsa for free then its $1 after that for refills. I had a taco salad with chicken and it was good. Good sized portions for the price.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We found El Caporal served great Mexican food for a very reasonable cost. My chicken burrito was packed and the rice and beans were a good compliment. The place was crowded but the service was fast and friendly.

“This was disappointing.”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We found this place and got really excited because it looked like it would be great. Instead it was very just ok. I just wanted Beef Nachos and they use cheedar cheese instead of the white cheese. They are really nice but this was disappointing.
