Quality AND Quantity

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!

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.

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.

We had lunch here during out two day stay in Beaufort. We were there in the late afternoon. I ordered the fajita nachos and my friend ordered the fajitas. We should have split it, we ended up taking two huge takeout containers back to the hotel.

This is the most delicious and authentic Mexican food I have had since moving from California. Everything I have had here has been utterly amazing, and my entire family loves this restaurant. Just reviewing it is making my mouth water, seriously. Oh, what I would not give for a burrito from here RIGHT now.

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.
