El Capitan is a family friendly local hangout for Flagstaff and tourists. We specialize in fresh ingredients only. We have a delicious salsa bar with 5 salsas to choose from made daily! We specialize in TACOS... We have hard, soft or our choice "dorado style". We serve tacos with chicken, shredded beef, pork, fish, shrimp or bean. We specialize in Margaritas! We have our famous "Lily" which is not on our menus. You must ask for this margarita. You are only allowed 2 max! Our happy hour is the best in Flagstaff. Served Tues-Friday. We have a separate food menu for the happy hour as well. Come visit us.. We know that you will not be disappointed. We are closed Mondays from Nov-March.
