Siempre bueno!!! My friend and I eat here a lot! Prices are good, food plentiful, and they don't rush us out the door. Oh - ask for their house sangria. Yummy!

Stayed next door at the Fairfield inn and suites and needed something to eat late after a long drive. Walked over to this place and was pleasantly surprised. Very good burritos and salsa for me and my wife had the crab meat enchiladas. A good meal and drinks. Service was OK and the prices were well within budget. Cannot go... More

Typical dive Mexican food but you can't beat $2 beers. The food is always fast and the service was always friendly. You can literally eat and drink a decent amount for under $15.

Overall good food. The guacamole looks like pea baby food. Doesn't taste right either. Service is pretty good here so overall not terrible.

Had the margariatas, several. Dinner was great because of the several margariatas. I remember it looked really good. Service was polite and attentive. We will be back and we will have the matgariates!!

If you visit El Nopal you have the chance of an excellent visit or a completely disappointing visit. Today the food was excellent service was great and overall the visit was great. That is not always the case. I keep coming back.

The food is great & the service was excellent. I highly recommend it. The Place is colorfully decorated in traditional Mexican colors. And it was clean.

Skip the margaritas. I got the lime margarita, which I thought would be a traditional margarita. Instead it came out a weird lime color, no taste of real lime, and quite weak. Food is at best ok -- not awful, but not good.

I have eaten here more then a dozen times, used to be a good Mexican restaurant. Now you'd do better going to Taco Bell. If you do eat there make sure you remember what the prices are on the menu, they add at the register. Food has no taste and is a little warmer then room temperature. Don't waste your... More
