I've had a service assist dog for past 21 years. My current dog was trained to pull my wheelchair everywhere I go. My family and I went to La Capilla to celebrate my aunt's 93rd birthday I was not allowed service in side or on their patio without proof of my dogs credentials. A call was made to the manager but we were still denied service. Our party of 13 people and 1 dog were refused service with the reason that someone may complain. It was mid afternoon and there was only 3 people out side and 5 that I could see inside. We did a web search of the ADA requirements and it stated that no id or clothing designating my dog as a service dog is required. We left very disappointed.

Our family has been going there for 15 years, but never again. After waiting for service (party of 6) and asking the hostess to talk to a manager (twice, and she needed my name?), we walked out. It used to be a fun place to eat.

Pros: Big place

Cons: Terrible service

My husband and I have been coming to LaCapilla for the past ten years. The food was very good (although everything on the menu is fried in straight lard, so if eating healthy is on your agenda, this isn't the place for you.)

Management, however is poor and we have stopped going as well. Not only because they unjustly fired a loyal dedicated employee to benefit themselves and LIED about it, but we also got tired of the public berating of employees by management time after time again right in front of customers, and the rude attitude that they toward their regular customers that have been coming for years. It has become very uncomfortable and yes, the service and quality of the food has also gone down. There are many other good Mexican resturants in the area that are better and that would appreciate their employees and your business as well.

Pros: None

Cons: Management

The Main Bartender helped put this restaurant on the map because of his professional and personal service. Because of him, my family felt like this was our second home. He always made us feel welcome. Unfortunately the manager, who had the family business handed to him, obviously became intimidated and created false accusations to fire him. We will miss him dearly. Our money will be better spent elsewhere.

The place used to be alot of fun, great drinks, great food, nice wait staff & bartender. The latest manager (now almost three years) started screwing it up from the moment he got there. Prices went up, Quality went down. Just recently he fired the bartender that had been there almost 9 years for something he did not do. Now the food is so so & the drinks aren't any better than the lemonade you can get off a corner lemonade stand. I know a few of the wait staff & they say he is terrible also.

My family and friends have gone to La Capilla for over 15 years and after this last week we will not go back. We will find a new place to call a restaurant our 2nd home. Prices have been increasing and the food is not that great. But the services we got from the main bartender was excellent. He always took great care of you so you would pay more for the food and drinks because you knew he was there. But they fired him last week after many years of services and brought in a new guy who is just serving lemonade and trying to pass them off as Margaritas and the service is not the same.
Good Restaurant gone real bad.

Pros: Used to be the service

Cons: The Service

.

The service here is hit or miss. It used to be bad enough that we would bring our own drinks in just to sve time. The shrimp enchiladas are excellent, maybe the best around, and the chips and salsa are good. Make sure you use the coupon, then it is not a bad deal... but no coupon...no go.

Not the best of the best mexican food but good service and never a wait to be seated. Good tacos, salsa fresh and just a comfortable place around the corner from home.

I have to say I was a little disappointed with the meal I ordered here and the margaritas were just ok. I was surprised because I've heard rave reviews of this restaurant. Two of us shared chicken tacos and enchilada and they weren't very flavorful. I hope to try it again with better results. The building and ambience were very pleasant so I would like to try it again.

I love this place. The food is awesome and the drinks are better. I have never had to wait more than 5 mins to be seated, even with 5 or more in our group. As for the bar, love it. My girlfriend and I go here with our kids quite frequently, we sit in the booths located in the bar. No one gives us an evil eye when our kids laugh too loud. We enjoy great happy hour prices and a cool drink with no fuss.

So in defense of the last comment we were quoted different prices for happy hour then were actually being offered on the phone but did find out that if you went early and sat at the bar-you more than recieved appropriate service. I have been a patron and will continue to be even though the new owner's son is the worst bar manager i've ever put my eyes on. Value, value, value. Their happy hour is a GREAT deal!

Pros: good bar service

Cons: un-knowledgable staff

.

They post "Happy Hour" in their ad as ending at 6:00 pm. The waiter/waitress inform you too late that it "really" ends at 5:45. They no longer honor their 2 for 1 coupons if you sit in the bar and order happy hour drinks. They really need to post a list of rule changes on the front door.

We have been loyal to this restaurant since it opened but after being informed of yet another rule change last night, we are done with La Capilla. It has become the "Unhappy Hour" place to not go.

I have been going to this restaurant for about two decades. The food is abundant and deliscious. The service can be a bit slow so come to relax. They have the best chiles rellenos and shrimp wrapped in bacon. FRESH food all day. Great happy hour at which time you can get very tasty finger foods cheap. Love it, especially the outdoor centered piaza with the finches.

This place used to be a family favorite, but no more!
This mexican restaurant gets an F for very bad customer service, Rude owners, management!

They have changed management in the last few months, waiters are super slow, the restaurant is super dirty, and service and food was HORRIBLE! The chips were stale and drinks were not good either. The food was not what was described in the menu. There was hair in my salad.

I am sorry, but if you own a business, you need to have a good business ethic...this place does not know what that is!

Save your money and go somewhere else. I know of take out places better than this place...eek!

Cons: food is horrible, and so is the management

La Capilla has a large and interesting menu. I've tried several of their specialties and I've never been disappointed. Unlike other chains, many items are not just a combination of beans, cheese, salsa and tortillas. We've eaten here many times and we generally get seated immediately, even on weekends. They have a full bar, great service, and a kids menu.

The best happy hour with tasty tacos and flautas. They have a big screen tv to watch games. The margaritas are to die for. Great selection. You get alot for your money and chips and salsa to boot.
