Typical Mexican restaurant in regards to menu, drinks, prices, etc. Had TVs in the dining area but table noise was atrocious; voices carried throughout. and anyone having a party certainly drowned out table talk for everyone else. But waitresses were pleasant, restaurant was clean, and...More

Ordered the steak and chicken fajitas for 2. Steak a bit chewy, but the chicken was awesome. Plenty to eat, we left with our stomachs full and plenty of food still on our plates. Easy access to freeway.

El Caporal is my new favorite place to eat in Burley Idaho! Fantastic authentic mexican food. The reanos are amazing, the best I've ever had. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone even close to Burley.

Very friendly staff. The chimichanga was nice and crisp. The crab enchilada was also good, but the Verde sauce is the best topping, try the fried ice cream. It's great.

I'm not usually a fan of Mexican restaurants, but looking through the choices in Burley for dinner, we decided to try El Caporal. Loved it! My arroz con pollo was exceptional. The onions were cooked until they started to carmelize. Nice big pieces of mushroom....More
