Good Food, Outstanding Service

We had lunch there today. The food was excellent. It has improved a lot. The service also was much better than last time. We left a nice tip for the server. We will return in the next few weeks again.

They need a chef who knows how to make food LOOK appetizing!! Also, the quality of the meat needs to improve. Even in the pics on the website the food does not look good. Bump up the presentation and also the quality and you will have a great place to eat.

I really like Mexican food and I have a set standard on what I think Mexican food should test like. Every time I go here I experience wonderful service as well as consistent authentic Mexican food. The best Mexican around!

El Nopal never seems to fail, no matter which location you go to. This location just off Goosecreek is my favorite. It's convenient to our church (Springdale Presbyterian Church) and the staff is accommodating, attentive and friendly. The food is always good and the beer is always cold. Can't wait to try their outdoor patio this spring & summer!

Came upon this restaurant by chance while following our GPS to another, but non-existent, Mexican restaurant. Doesn't look like much from the outside but interior is 'authentic' and lively. Very colourful. Clean. Family friendly. Food was mucho excellente! Authentic. Generous portions, reasonable prices. Excellent service. Highly recommended!

We recently ate here while in town with family and friends. It was a very good experience. We all enjoyed our meals. It was a very nice, clean restaurant. I would definitely go here again on future trips to the area. Good pricing and very large portions. You shouldn't leave hungry after eating here.

Quick, friendly service. There are several locations in Louisville, and the food is consistantly deliscious at all of them. Great for lunch or dinner. Very reasonable prices. My favorite Mexican cuisine by far!
