A superbly unique family operated authentic Mexican eatery with the unquestionably best margaritas in town. Sadly though it closed several months, ago.

A great place in the middle of town near Libby Park with great tasting, AUTHENTIC Mexican fare and "killer Margaritas". Had to close at the beginning of May probably based on decisions made by a greedy landlord.

Not sure how it compares to the other local Mexican places. Service was slow only because they were understaffed with one person serving. I found that odd considering it was one of their busiest weekends of the year. The food was hit/miss. I enjoyed my dish but the others found theirs to be bland.

My friend and I ate at this resteraunt and I found it very disappointing. My friend had fish tacos and she liked her dinner. I had the ensalada salad with steak. The steak looked like it was left over bits and the salad looked as if it was taco toppings. The chips weren't fresh and taste...all very disappointing. Some people... More

Very nice Mexican food in a style made somewhat unique by using family recipes. I would highly recommend. Easy walking distance from shopping or strolling downtown.

I was craving enchiladas after seeing someone else had posted a pic so walked over to Los Caporales. Ordered the cucumber mint margarita and chicken/cheese enchilada. I thought the salsa was excellent but the chips weren't anything to get excited about. My food came before my drink. Enchiladas were excellent. Exactly what I wanted! The margarita was delicious. Refreshing. Full... More

Good food. Slow service. But my hubby knows the owners and he likes to go there. The one time I went, there was only one other couple in the restaurant and there were joking about how backwards Ojai is.

We rolled into Ojai around 8:30pm and found this to be one of only a couple restaurants still open. What we didn't realize is how slow the service would be. Granted it was a late dinner but, if your sign says, "Open" then you should treat every customer equally right? We were the only the second table with people at... More

This family-owned and operated place was a delight! Delicious margaritas and spicy mexican favourites. A bright and lively atmosphere.
