Mexican Restaurant Chula Vista, CA

Proudly serving our community with unique Mexican food and second-to-none service is our mission at El Capitan Cocina. When you're looking for a family-friendly joint where you always feel welcome, the atmosphere is lively, and the staff insists on nothing short of extremely high-quality Mexican food, you've come to the right place.

Family Owned and Operated

At our family-owned-and-operated Mexican restaurant in Chula Vista, CA, we're known for our fabulous variety of tacos and burritos plus other Mexican specialties. We're not a run-of-the-mill taqueria that slaps together basic, ordinary ingredients and sends you on your way. We take pride in the tasty, creative dishes our talented chefs prepare which can't be duplicated anywhere.

You can enjoy your burritos as carne asada, adobada, or pollo asado; or you can stuff your tacos with shrimp, fish, and an endless variety of fresh toppings and spices. And you'll be sure to want to try our signature burritos of the El Capitan, Raptor, Catalina, B-29, Warthog, Tofu, and more. One of them is bound to be your new favorite.
