Has won awards for its burgers, but all I could taste was the grease that dripped from my hands to pool on the plate below. Very slow service. Food made me feel ill.

We have been here several times and have always had delicious food. Their staff is very friendly and make you feel like your home. The cook comes out of the kitchen to make sure everything is perfect. Great selections, awesome hamburgers that taste like mom's!...More

Happened by El Cap on my way somewhere else. Looked inviting so changed my plans. So glad I did. Great burger and fries. Nice selection of beers. I will be back on my next visit.

We've been coming here since the mid 90's. The absolute best burger in St. Pete. Baseball themed restaurant. It's quaint, waitstaff are good. Beer's are cold. We've made trips here out of the blue, with nothing else to do from Orlando, just to get a...More

This place is really simple, so don't come here for anything but a burger. But if you do, hold on to your hat. This is the best hamburger is town, hands down. No frills, just a classic burger that will satisfy your craving to eat...More
