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

You will not go wrong with almost anything you order. Best breakfast. They have early hours and closed in the weekends

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.

We were so glad our flight landed early enough for us to get over to Nopalitos in time for lunch (even though in the opposite direction of where we were heading). The food was just tremendously great, we both had stuffed burritos smothered with a split of red and green sauce and they were divine. The prices are crazy affordable.... More

I used to go to Nopalitos often, but just recently returned for the first time in years. They still have good, fresh ingredients in all their selections. And it's all good! Be sure and get something with the sliced nopalitos (cactus). Very tender and flavorful compared to other places. A wonderful little neighborhood restaurant.

Open for breakfast and lunch only during the week, Nopalitos is great value, fresh ingredients, no salt added and not greasy = excellent Mexican. My favorite is the carnitas burrito, a full meal. Occassionally they make tamales in mass. I always buy two dozen as my emergency lunch or dinner when my wife is gone and I don't feel like... More

We have been eating at Nopalitos for years. This is a small Mexican restaurant with exceedingly fresh ingredients and a friendly staff. We have been served by one of the owners at the counter every single time except perhaps once in over dozens upon dozens of visits and she is always wonderful. You get the sense that they are so...

Great food in a very small restaurant. No credit cards. Cash or check only. Off in a neighborhood not easy access from highway but good food worth the diversion.

Wish they had more hours and were open on the weekend. If you can stop by on Mon-Friday for breakfast or lunch; the meals are fresh and delicious. Service was fast and friendly.
