I have traveled extensively in Mexico on the mainland and throughout Baja and keep coming back to Tanya for the burgers! Couple the burger with some crispy onion rings and we are in gringo heaven. Thanks Tanya!

Owner is a professional chef and we have never had anything we don't like here. Best hamburger in town. Service is impeccable, prices are right and you can watch football!

Thanksgiving dinner,absolutely fantastic. Otherwise chipotle burgers my favorite ( I never eat hamburgers all year). Ribs, salads, just the way your are used to it, and after, just hang out with the regulars downstairs in the Playa Bar.

We have been going to La Hila del Capitan for several years. They have a Italian Roast Beef sandwich that is very close to Chicago style. The fried calamari is the best in town and so are the fries.

About once a week I get the craving for gringo food... This place has the best burgers and fries! The chicken burger was one of the best I've had. Their fries are plentiful and very good. Look forward to my next visit to the Captain's Daughter's table

We heard that these were the best burgers ever! My husband and I love a good burger and our daughters were craving something carnivores after all of the fish that we've eaten on the trip so we went to the Captains Daughter. The service was exceptional and the onion rings got us really excited for the burgers but they were... More
