good food served hot and quickly

A very good dinner for all including a Mexican-American. Service was very good with the longest delay in getting the queso. Dinners were served hot and reasonable promptly. Portions are ample and my wife usually shares and may still have some to take home. Prefer over Agave and suggest you try... read more

Service was excellent, food was on time. I was a little disappointed to hear people behind me order fajitas and that this was their first venture into guacamole. La Napolera is traditional around the corner Mexican restaurant. They provide ample quantity and home style Mexican food. It is not Fridays or chilis....the spices are not the same. The servers are... More

Sadly, the staff appeared to not understand either English or Spanish. But to be fair, it wasn't their ability to chat that was poor. It is their ability to listen and complete the customer's request. The attention to satisfaction and the other food or drink 'need' was NOT even afforded. The staff appeared to be more interested in sitting around... More

Food was as usual ample, served hot and in good time, and tasty. The pre-service young lady was very good and took care of the chips and salsa very quickly. The waitress was not so quick for the drink orders, not attentive during the meal, and overall seemed to have little interest in meeting our needs. A bit disappointing this... More

Gave it a try, but will not return. It may have been an off day, but the service was lacking, and the food tasted like it had been under a warmer for much too long. Agave is much better.

Went there for a quick lunch. Usually small Mexican restaurants give you lots of volume for your buck but this one delivered a very good quality meal at the same time. Good and fast service. Three Mexican beers on tap. Best Mexican experience in Beaufort!

I have generally had a good experience at La Nopalera Mexican Restaurant, but tonight's meal was exceptional. The food is always very good, served hot and usually delivered very quickly. All of this and more tonight. Service was OUTSTANDING and wish I knew the waitress's name to put it here - she was terrific! From start to finish excellent! And,... More

Food came out fast and it was average I had the steak tacos and they were good but the rice was bland and the refried beans were very salty. Flies turned me off a bit and made me think how sanitary the kitchen might be.
