The food and the service are ok for what they offer. If you never have had authentic mexican food, then this will do for you.

Average "Mexican" food place, typical menu, typical service. The whole restaurant has gorgeous painted murals though which makes for a fun atmosphere.

We hit this place all the time. Good food and good portions at a reasonable price. They have nice, strong margaritas! Check out the chorizo queso, really tasty. The El Paso is one of my favorite dishes. We hit several of the locations around town. Always a thumbs up!

Good, experienced wait staff. Plenty of food. Good Value. Margaritas by the pitcher works well for the whole table. Great tortilla chips and salsa (not the cold nasty store bought types some places try to pass off).

With good Mexican food hard to find in Florida, thought we'd try La Nopalera. It was extremely crowded and we had to wait for a table but, over all, the wait was worth it. The menu is extensive and the portions are a good size. The margaritas aren't bad either. It was a little noisy as it's more family oriented... More

Good selection of spirits and great margaritas. Food seems authentic and very good. Service is fast, no long waiting while they build up the bill with drinks.

If you like authentic Mexican food this place is heaven! The food is great and won't hurt your wallet! What a great neighborhood restaurant. Great service, great food and awesome Margarita's.

This has been our go to place for 10 years. In the past year or so there seems to be a decline. Across the board service, food and overall consistency has gone downhill. I really hate writing this review as I feel like I am calling a good friend out for bad behavior. We have always loved the food and... More
