Consistent but Predictable

Most locations are attractive and offer the same menu. The location on Zorn Avenue just north of the Water Tower is especially nice. The patio is great in good weather, particularly on summer evenings. The food is consistently good but predictable. Hey, it's Mexican food, right? Service is... read more

It is average well executed Mexican food. My wife had the chicken quesadilla and I had a combo dinner, and we both enjoyed it. Nothing to complain about and nothing wow'ed me, but it was tasty, affordable, and satisfying. Would go again, with a coupon.

My husband and I love El Nopal! We especially like to visit the one in The Mall St Matthews. Cute decor and nice ambience...They have The BEST queso and warm tortilla chips...fast and attentive service...Love their Tortilla soup, tacos, rice, and beans, and enchiladas. Very reasonably priced. We go every couple of weeks.

There are multiple locations in the Louisville, KY area. We have been to several of them. Food is consistently good at every location. My favorite is the Burrito Gigante. And boy, is it Gigante! Enough for 2 meals. The service is always excellent. All of the locations we've been to are very clean. Try it, I'm sure you'll love it... More

When I can't go to Mexico I go here at Gardiner Lane in Louisville! The staff is friendly, serves food and drinks rapidly. Food is always hot. Restrooms are fantastically clean in every location I have been to. Decor is bright. Noise level is not too loud--a criterion for my future visits. Hola to Claudia, an efficient manager!

Was in town for business, but had time to meet up with some old friends for dinner. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Our particular server was very patient with us even though we took up her table for around 2 1/2 hours. She never let our glasses get too empty, cleared our plates promptly and was kind... More

For the area of the country it's in, El Nopal is decent. Not their fault they're not in Texas. On the other hand, if they were n Texas, they'd be closed up tighter than Dick's hatband.

I have gone to El Nopal on 10500 Watterson Trail now quite a few times, and I can tell you, the service is great, the food is great (hot, fast, tasty, and inexpensive). The new Jeffersontown Square that has been reconstructed has ample parking! Great place to have a meal!
