“VERy good Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

After moving to Oregon from California, we were finding it a challenge to find nice and good and spicy Mexican food.

This establishment had it!! Good enchilada sauce, and nice and spicy salsa. Margaritas were nice and strong, and the staff very friendly and amiable.

“What a delicious dinner for our family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

For a great Mexican meal, this is the place to eat at! The service was very good, and the menu had so many selections to choose from. We did not have to wait long for our dinners, and the portions were HUGE! Loved the salsa that was included with our meal.

The prices were very good, and we will come back for another meal next time we are back in Bend.

“Good food and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I was born and raised in Los Angeles County and came from a partial Mexican family and I have had great Mexican food. El Cap is terrific! The food is ALWAYS fresh. The portions are good size. The garnishes are perfect...roasted jalapenos and green onions, guacamole, etc. I love the carne asada "Mar y Tierra"! The chile relleno, albondigas soup and guacamole fresco are a few of my other favorites.

The owners, Carlos & Luz, and their staff are like a big family. Lots of smiles and laughing. Sometime one or all of them will sing while they're in the kitchen - I love it! The will do a very loud and jovial rendetion of Happy Birthday if you want. A very UP atmosphere. We eat here 1-2 times a week.
