We have been going to this restaurant for at least two years. We love the food, the people, the atmosphere, and especially for such a good price. I have been to other nopalito's and none are as good as this one. I love their salsa and spinach enchiladas. Definitely worth a try!

Inexpensive and perfectly crafted--well-packed breakfast tacos!! The salsa is excellent. Chorizo is not too greasy, and the migas tacos are delicious.

We live near here and it's always been a quick go to, especially for breakfast. Service can be hit or miss. Usually though, service is good and quick. The food is not spectacular, but is decent. Lately it seems there has been some turnover in the kitchen and waitstaff and they haven't been as consistent as in the past. Breakfast... More

We ate here three mornings out of seven last summer when we stayed with our cousin on the Guadeloupe river over the 4th of july last summer. It's close to her house, and the tacos are FABULOUS for breakfast. Love their beans. Tortillas are just right. The service for us was typically quick and always very nice. We live in... More

I had never been her or for that matter I had never been in this section of town. Usually when I was going to New Braunfels on Hunter Road, I skipped the cutoff and saved a mile or so. And when I was going to Canyon Lake, I'd take a different shortcut too. I was out driving to pass the... More

Breakfast was the pits here. Waited way too long for service and finally had to ask if they wouldn't mind waiting on us, like give us menus and drinks. Don't forget to come back and bring a fly swatter. Our food must have sit on the counter next to the warming light.

We had driven by this place numerous times and always said, we need to try that place sometime. Well finally we stopped and this place is definitely a "keeper". You almost have to flip a coin to pick what you want as there are so many great items on the menu. We started with enchiladas because if a Mexican restaurant... More
