El nopal is great food. We enjoy going here. They could improve on service. We had the enchiladas de creme. I was pleased with them. They were slow refilling our drinks but other than that they were great.

Unless you want to be serenaded by an Elvis impersonator. Which may enjoyable for some in the proper setting, but a family birthday celebration at a Mexican restaurant wasn't it. The music was incredibly loud and prohibited table conversation. There were several times where there was squealing feedback through the pa. I suffer with tinnitus. Let me tell you how... More

I was staying next door and didn't really want to drive anywhere for dinner, so we just walked over. I'm not a huge Mexican food eater, but I do eat a few certain things. I decided to get the burrito gigante, and boy was it gigante!! It was probably enough to feed 3 people! It was delicious and filled with... More

Tacos were great! Enchiladas were not so great! Not much taste. Service was good. Sauce on enchiladas was missing something!

I stayed next door, but lacking a restaurant, this restaurant was next door. Good solid TexMex food, service was good and the food hot. The Margarita was fair, not much tequila. Very clean and lots of locals, speaks highly for the place.

A friend and I stopped in after work for a light dinner. The service was super fast. The food was delicious. Good times were had by all! It wasn't crowded at the time we arrived, but I've been there when it is and it's still just as good. They don't get flustered with a crowd. Check it out!!

We stopped here after spending several hours with the in laws at their new assisted living place. Middle of the afternoon, so wasn't busy. We split a bowl of tortilla soup. Wonderful and more than one could eat or at least should eat late in the day.
