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.

Great food, and service. Love their chips and hot sauce! I tried their crispy beef tacos and they were delicious. Would go there again!

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!

When we are in Louisville visiting friends we always eat at El Nopal. They are fast and friendly but allow us to linger chit chatting when we are done eating. We never feel rushed. We go to the one on Eastern Parkway near campus. They are also so nice when my boys speak Spanish to them!

I often forget to review our local haunts, but this restaurant delivers dependable Mexican food at decent prices. Their chips and salsa is better than most. Drinks are good. The staff is above-average in friendliness and service levels. We can get in and out pretty quickly, or we can enjoy a longer meal when we prefer.

Good service and value for luncheon. Bar fortunately quiet during lunch. Would recommend for casual luncheon dining.

We went to the New Cut rd location last night, wow, i had the pollo asada with pico de gallo infused rice, it was fantastic. The beer was cold and the patio atmosphere made it even better. I don't know exactly what my guest had because I was too involved in my own meal, but they loved their meal as... More

You probably know the menu before you walk in, I think it's pretty standard quick inexepensive Mexican food. Most locations have a pretty nice atmosphere, nothing special.

Decent atmosphere, and friendly service. Decent prices also. But the food was pretty mediocre. Had a plate with a few different items on it, and they were all a bit bland, although not terrible.
