We've been to the new location for El Carporel a couple of times now and we love it! The servers and hostesses are the best - so friendly - professional and hard working. The new location is surprisingly large! Lots of tables with room for...More

El Caporal is Temporarily CLOSED until the opening of the new location at 62040 NE 27th St. and they move from Twin Knolls over near Wilco. Can't Wait!

Very helpful in getting me to car with my food as I'm getting up in years. I always buy extra salsa that I use on food prepared at home. Delicious! Can't wait to see their new building.

This reastaurant was rather pleasant...we ordered a cheese crisp (deliciously and perfectly made) and a beef enchilada (also perfect). My cadillac margarita was also good, however, on this visit, the bartender forgot to add the Grand Marnier...our waiter took care of it immediately...very good service...More

Friendly staff. Food came quickly. It was hot when arrived, but cooled down quickly. The food was in my opinion just average. While I appreciate that it cannot be too too spicy for the average customer, it could have been a bit more flavourful..

Reliable in food preparation time after time. Been going there for years. Lately, however, waiting time to pay seems to be increasing even with waiters running by.

Nice Mexican restaurant in an out of the way location with excellent food, good service, and decent prices.

The decor is typical Mexican restaurant. Wait staff excellent. Shredded beef very tasty and juicy. But the Cadillac margaritas were beyond compare.

This is our go to place. In the neighborhood, near Costco. Carne asada is my favorite. They do it best. A gold margarita usually adds to the night. Endless chips and salsa, kid friendly and great service. Busy between 5:30 - 6:30. Some outside seating.
