“Dinner”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us, but sorry we were not impressed. Service was poor, food was not great, etc. We personally would not go back, and that is rare for us to say about a mexican restaurant.

“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great for the family. Our meal was delicious. Stick with the Mexican though. My son got the steak, and it wasn't the best, but I didn't really expect it to be. Good staff and value.

“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.
