This was my first visit to El Caporal and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was good, serviced quickly, and big portions. They have a very extensive menu of both food and beverages. Our waiter recommended a house margarita that was very good, although pretty pricy at $10 each. We'll definitely be back.

We came here for dinner during the week. We live in the area so we knew where it was located. For someone visiting it may be harder to find. In the Village area of Sunriver. Restaurant is small, but usually busy. Very friendly servers and very fast service. Food was good with many selections to choose from. It is a... More

This restaurant was a little hard to find, but the food was good. I had a chile relleno and chalupa taco. The relleno was excellent. The chalupa was huge and fell apart, but was still tasty.

I live near Sunriver, so I frequent the local restaurants often. I have always liked the El Caporal "chain" which is here in Central Oregon owned by the same family. So I was really looking forward to a quiet lunch here yesterday. Although the atmosphere and service were excellent, the food was well below average and below what I've come... More

I was very disappointed with our experience at this restaurant. The food was fine, the margarita was delicious but... The service was not good. The waiter didn't get part of our order correct and then had a attitude when the correct side dish (black beans) was requested when refried beans were on the plate. No chips came with the guacamole... More

My family has eaten at this restaurant for several years when we visited Sunriver and always been pleased with the food and service. However, this July seven of us went in and had terrible service. We asked four times for mild salsa and never received any, even though it was promised each time. My partner and I wanted to share... More

We popped in for an early dinner on our trip and the food was really good. Our kids are picky eaters, but they gobbled this up!

I was fortunate enough with my enchilada verde and tamale (and the refried beans were great), but the mole was sweetish with a strong cinnamon flavor (not to our taste of mole) and the Camarones a la Diabla (shrimp and mushrooms in tomato sauce) were down right sugary. And one of our party found a bug in her rice. Friends... More

Well I tried to eat here but gave up. I waited for about 5 minutes by the "please wait to be seated" sign while being ignored by the staff. Eventually the manager, who was 10 feet away but busy chatting with friends, asked me if anyone had helped. I said no, he said he would have someone come help. I... More
