El Cap: A neighborhood spot that makes you feel like part of the neighborhood
For over 50 years, El Cap has been serving great burgers, hot dogs, chili, fries, onion rings and sandwiches in a homey, funky atmosphere. There are 16 TV (always on with a variety of sporting events from baseball to horse racing). The waitstaff treat you like family, folks sitting at the bar talking sports wave hello to strangers, and a curious egret often hangs out at the back door looking for handouts. Just watch for the signature neon El Cap's sign. There is ample parking in the rear.
