I enjoy going to El Nopal. We go there when we need a tex-mex fix. Their food is hot and tasty and the menu is varied. I always get the Tex-Mex fahitas which is enough for three people. Great seasoning, and good service

This is a family run Mexican Restaurant that serves great fairly authentic food with none of the frills of a larger chain restaurant. The margarita's are good and everything is reasonably priced. This is a go to place for my family.

El Nopal is a pretty typical Mexican restaurant with the menu items, prices, and large portions sizes we have come to expect from restaurants like this. The food is good and plentiful, but there isn't anything special about it or the establishment itself. It is...More

We went on a very crowded Wed night - 20 minute wait so we had Margaritas at the bar. Service was good. Food came quickly and hot and our chips and salsa was replenished often in the meantime. We like it here and will be...More
