Good food. – Good burgers, if you like sports then go here bunch of T.V.s inside and out.
YUUUUUKKKKK! – Disgustingly filthy, dirty walls, absolutely gross bathrooms....terrible food....I think they use wonder bread buns! I live here, not a tourist, my husband and I eat out at least 2 times a week - just to try different resturants. This place is so bad I felt I had to warn others! $25 bucks (before the tip) for 2 really bad "hamburgers" (served on tiny plastic dirty plates), shoestring french fries and 8 really bad chicken wings (tasted like vinegar). Bottom line....don't waste your money!
Never Again – What a waste of money, and a big disappointment. We will never eat there again the burgers have NO flavor and we asked for well done and we ended up throwing them in the trash and don't order chili you will get a cup of greasy water. I was so upset I had to get online and leave a comment.
El Cap Was great until frank passed. – I was last in El cap years ago when frank was ALIVE, the place rocked. I went back once after, cannot say I would reccomend it.
Uhh, Good Food But Dirty – Its good food but,
dirty walls and floors.
:) enjoy, i would still come back but dont come here if you dont like insects.
Greasy Burgers Yeah! – Good Greasy Burger! A Little Small. No Refills on a Coke....That's a Crime..
Great Burgers – I'm really surprised at so many negative reviews. El Cap makes a great homemade burger. I think too many people have gotten used to fast food burgers and don't know a good burger when they get one. They are juicy, not greasy, the way a burger should be. They remind me of how burgers tasted when I was a kid before frozen patties were used most places. El Cap may not be the prettiest restaurant around, but it is very atmospheric. Just to clarify for all of you tourists who think Floridians don't know good food, I have visited every state in this country (and 6 continents). I know good food and El Cap has always been good when I've been there. If you don't like Florida food, I would suggest that you vacation elsewhere!
Best Burgers!! – This little hole in the wall was a great date! My hubby and I are foodies, I will admit this. So, when he took me here I was apprehensive. The waitress was so nice and the burgers were just how we wanted them and the flavor was wonderful. A definite must!!
El Cap El Cheapo?? – I have gone to El caps for over 30 years and today was my last visit. Each time the burger gets smaller and the price gets larger. They actually now charge for lemon slices 25 cents with your over priced drink ( no free refills)!! When we went to pay our tab we were told they could not split the check, we all had $20 dollar bills and we were told they could not make change for us, they did not have cash available.. Is this a business with no petty cash to break change for $60.
When we asked for Mary jane the owner she never the waitress told us she is the one who would not give us change!! She never appeared and almost 10 minutes later the waitress appeared with change for all of us!! I know times are hard but they are going to get harder for this place. They forgot the most important part of business, Customer service.. That is what will keep the truly good places going, they will not last much longer sad to say at this rate.. We all vowed to never return and we will just support our first love Chattaways even more,they rock!!
They measure the amount of fries and burger for skimpy – we heard how good burgers were and ordered largest burger and basket of fries. we are not huge eaters and never eat at Wendy's, BK, McDonald's etc. but we like a good home cooked burger. when the meal arrived it was a skimpy 1/3 LB burger and skimpy basket of fries. when we asked waitress if we could get larger basket of fries she said everything was measured to exact portions.
tastes good but really skimpy portions. order two of each if you want to feel like you actually ate.
