If you have a chance to stop here, DO IT! It is an easy access location right off the interstate in a town that is located in the "middle of nowhere." I am not a big fan of Mexican food (I'm a baby when it comes to spicy food!) but El Caporal is FABULOUS! The service has always been great, the food is wonderful! Large portions for a good price, and unlimited chips and salsa. The atmosphere is authentic and friendly, and your food gets served in a timely manner. The only concern? Watch out! The plates are hot!!

A gem just off the highway as we were driving from Jackson, WY to Boise ID. The food was spicy and flavorful, the beer cold. The meal was served promptly and was piping hot. Great value for money, wonderful meal.

We stopped on a road trip after the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. It was lunch time, and there was a good size lunch crowd. We didn't have to wait to be seated and the food came out really fast and piping hot! All of our lunches were excellent as were the chips and salsa that came before the meal. It was really good!

Had the grandkids with us. Kids had summer colds and we had driven 600 miles. Tried and hungry. Great choice. Friendly comfortable and clean. Good selection for everyone. Soups and salads weren't the same ol' thing. Neither was the Mexican food on the menus. Hot and tasty. Would recommend to all.
