Neighborhood Restaurant is Still A Torch Bearer

Consistently great breakfast and lunch food. We know of many people, not from the neighborhood that will make the special trip to come here. Over the years we have tried every dish and were always satisfied, feeling good and content when leaving.

The menu is varied and anyone can find something to suite their tastes. Very small location so sometimes a wait is required.Tight parking.

You gotta have the tamale bowl with green sauce!!! This dish is addicting. I discovered this place about 10 years ago. Never disappointed. Run by Rose and her husband. Very nice people. Southwest cooking (slightly different than Mexican) at it's best. Several Sacramento rock-star chefs agree with me about the Chili Verde Tamale bowl.

All items on the written blackboard are impecably fresh, appetizing, well balanced, and with clean taste. they are delicious because they are prepared with a light touch of delicate home cooking. At Nopalitos, nothing is common. You WILL NOT encounter heaviness nor the rough combination of most standard commercial "California mexican ". Enjoy real true mexican cuisine!

In the area on business and saw this place pop up on TA as a highly rated restaurant. Tried the chile verde over rice and it was quite delicious. It was priced below $7 and was plenty filing. This place is worth its rating.

We and our friends have frequented this small but mighty cafe since the husband & wife team opened it years ago. We lived in the East Sac neighborhood at the time so it was only 5 minutes away. Even when we moved to South Land Park many years later we still mark this as one of our fave breakfast places!!... More

Stopped in this morning to try them out. Very good menu selection and the staff was very friendly (not always the norm around here). I ordered their Huevos Rancheros. It arrived fast and was delicious. They suggested mixing the ranchero and green sauce, very good combination! It's a small place with about six tables inside and a few outside along... More

I must say I have not tried anything else for breakfast than their Little Cactus Special, which is so different than any other omelette I have ever had. It is so good, I have not tried anything else, but choose to order this over and over again (and I've gone there for years). The first time you try it, let... More

Dave & Rose have been satisfying Sacramento palettes and tummies since their days at The Bun Stop across from UCD Med. Ctr. Now with Nopalitos they have become a weekday mainstay for East Sac folk, and others who venture over. Never a disappointment.
