We took our 4 and 2 year-old grandsons on Saturday night and we all had a good time. Friendly servers helped with our special requests for the boys and the food came out quickly and hot. Pacifico and other Mexican beers on draft compliment the tasty dishes. Lots of nice combo meals at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy but lots... More

I visited this place with my family and I truly enjoyed the drinks and quality of the food was great. Great portions too. I would this recommend this place to bring you that flavor south of the border.

Hadn't been here for a couple years and the quality of food has really gone down hill. Service was fast but not very cheerful... Plus there were flies EVERYWHERE!!

This Mexican restaurant has consistently served good food for years and except for a brief period when it reopened after a fire, the service has been excellent. The tasty food is served quickly and hot - temperature not spice level. We took my daughter and her 2-year-old triplets and all was good! Good margaritas, but I prefer the Mexican draft... More

The enchiladas were a different style than usual, and I really enjoyed them. The portion size was large, my girlfriend and I both agreed we should've shared just one meal. Beware the chimichanga is topped with Red sauce and not just nacho cheese as listed on the menu. This inconsistency combined with the shrimp resulted in a rating of 4... More

Our dining with daughter and granddaughter was top notch after a disappointing level of service a couple weeks earlier. Food and drinks were up to their pre-fire level and portions were as ample as ever. Service this visit was quite good and more like the very good service pre-fire. To the owner's credit or some ones the lousy service issue... More

Good basic Mexican food. Nothing special. Plenty to eat, clean, and fast. Just nothing to write home about.

I come here every week. Food is always great, service has always been timely. I've never had a bad experience. The owner is a cool guy too, a plus. Recommend to everyone!

LaNopalera opened a few weeks ago after a fire. Everyone waited a very long time for the reopening. The time was well worth the wait! The restaurant is beautiful with an open concept. The bar is marble and the walls are a light yellow. A busy hum was going all the time with an efficient wait staff. Many of the... More

My husband and I went there on a Thursday evening, and they were hopping! We had dinner at the bar, where it was a little less busy. This restaurant is known for its outstanding service and excellent food, and they did not disappoint. My husband had the ribeye with Parmesian sauce and I had to have tamales! This is by... More
