Best burritos and fajitas around. Margaritas are great also but take it easy as they can pack a punch. Service is a plus and the place makes you feel welcome. Definitely beats other Mexican restaurants around here..

Everything was top notch-food, service, and cleanliness. Our party of three had three different entrees and all were more than satisfied with our meals. We have eaten at several different Mexican restaurants and we all agreed that this was the best of the best.

Some people are in love with the food here but i was not. I'm not saying it was terrible but it wasn't anything to write home about. The prices are about the same as everywhere else. We haven't been back.

Ok, so most Mexican joints taste the same. They are americanized meals that hit the spot, but leave you wanting something more. El Caporal is different. Yes, it's still a menu you'd see in most places like it, with a few additions. They don't skimp on flavor for fear it will be too much for americans either! The Shimp Diablo is HOT HOT HOT (as it should be)! They have wonderful burritos, and the fajitas are beyond perfect. They are always willing to edit a dish for you too! Just ask. For example, they have a great veggie fajita, and I often have the veggie fajitas and ask that they add some steak to it. It's a perfect blend every time. Prices are reasonable, and the service is always with a smile. (And some of the best salsa you'll find too).

The food is great and the staff is always very friendly and welcoming. One of my favorite Mexican dishes is anything with mole sauce and they're one of the few around Cincinnati that I've found that even have it, much less a very good one.

They also have the best frozen Margarita around. Just beware of the large...it's HUGE!
