we peruse the menu and ALWAYS go back to our favorite - steak fajitas. the other 'acid test' for a mexican restaurant is the refried beans. are they smooth, hot, just the right amount of cheese? yes to all at El Nopal! our favorite chain mexican restaurant.

Also excellent service staff. We came about 8 pm on a Thursday with a party of 4. Seated as soon as we walked in, chips and salsa as we sat down. Drink orders promptly taken and brought out. Food tasty and satisfying.
