Authentic Mexican Cuisine -- Since 1990

El Caporal Mexican Restaurant was establised in 1990. For nearly two decades, El Caporal has been serving the finest authentic mexican food north of the border.

The roots of this Mexican restaurant extend to a famous state in Mexico known for Tequila, "Jalisco." Three amigos from Jalisco came to Louisville in 1989 and decided to open a authentic Mexican restaurant. The first location opened at 7319 Preston Highway. With much success, the three amigos soon opened another location. Over the years, El Caporal has served as a platform for other Mexican restaurants in the area, providing recipes served today at many Mexican establishments across the region.
