Checking out a restaurant at 540 University Ave. in Hillcrest is like rolling the dice at Vegas because this location has been cursed for years, with all its previous restaurants having been a hot mess. But definitely not this time … because every time I go there, it’s like I hit the jackpot for Mexican food, as its authentic Mexican family recipes are some of the best I have ever tasted. Don’t walk to Capricho — run before everyone discovers it.
