We were really impressed about the menu. There was the perfect choice for our group. A grandma, a grandpa, 2 vegetarian, and some plain meat eaters. Perfect!!!

Very good restaurant across from the Ramada hotel. Staff is friendly and food is yummy. Didn't expect to German and Mexican food combined but it was yummy.

Had a lovely dinner, but truly the dessert was my favourite, made in house. It was an apricot brandy cake with homemade apple sauce on the side. I also had a decaf with a shot of brandy. Just a delight!

My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant, great food, good prices, excellent service. I love that they give young adults (students) the opportunity to work, gain work experience, and earn money. I read a review recently that said they have “children working here” I...happen to know the young man who was working a few shifts throughout the summer and this was such a great experience for him. I highly recommend this establishment:)More

This restaurant was highly recommended but did not satisfy. The schnitzel was greasy and tough, ends of the potato could not be cut through as it was over cooked, carrots were just short of raw. Although there were not that many patrons we had to...wait a long time for even our drink order to be taken. Service was almost non-existent. Maybe we hit at a bad time, but probably will not try this one again.More

Whenever we stay overnight in 100 Mile this is our go to restaurant. It is walking distance from the Days Inn. Have tried various items on the menu. The schnitzel was quite thick would be nice if more German type food items came with it....The next meal I had the tortilla soup and shared the guacamole and chips with my husband. The chips were delicious and made in house, the guacamole needed a bit of kick. The staff not friendly, but noticed regulars were greeted and spoken to. I guess the rest of us were considered one time guests, so not much time was wasted on us. Even though the restaurant was mostly empty.More

I have a hard working 13 yr old who wanted a job to help pay for his soccer development and hobbies so we asked the great people of El Caballo if they had room for him. They said one of their best employees ever was...another young 13yr old soccer player and were happy to have my son join the team. He has plenty of time for school work with straight A's, won Athlete of the Year for his school, plays more video games then we care for, and practices an hour or more of soccer every day. Success comes through 2 things: 1. Hard work 2. Opportunities Thanks to the owners of El Caballo for allowing my son the opportunity to learn real life skills, responsibility, and making money towards his life and professional development. As far as the food, well making it from scratch takes more time than manufactured frozen meals at your average restaurant. With a mexican wife and years of travelling throughout the country, I know good Mexican food and that is what i get at El Caballo. Carnitas, on the Appetizer Menu are my favorite!!!More

This restaurant offers you a good meal, though it is a bit overpriced for what it's worth. The children (!) do their best, but the service is bad: inefficient and slow. Besides, children should go to school, do their homework, do chores at home and...after all that: play & have fun. NOT work at their parents' place!More

I wanted Mexican. I didn’t quite get it, although this place uses local and even homemade ingredients. Tacos were greasy from the wrong cheese. Portion was small although homemade chips are twice as large as usual. Salsa had no flavor. Then I tried the tortilla...soup. Somewhat watery. I have had much better. Hubby ordered Huaraches which is a flour tortilla with bean spread, stuffed with your choice of filling. Since we’re vegetarian they could only offer vegetables. What arrived was coleslaw on top. Too bad there’s no refried beans & rice. Overall the Mexican food was a bland Northern mix. Original though. Margarita was too sweet I couldn’t finish it.More
