Good Mexican food, Better location, Service average

El Nopal moved east of old location, now 7740 US Hwy 64. Bigger location, brighter colors, still good food. At least they are closer to making Camarones A La Diabla they way I expect. Spicy hot like I like it. Food is reasonable price, Ate there last night, will eat there again. For Oakland... read more

Went here with family while visiting them in Oakland. Loved the salsa. Food was typical for a family owned Mexican place.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on Sunday, the food was absolutely excellent as was the service. Very nice and clean place. If we are in the area again we would definitely eat here again.

My sister and I were working in Somerville, Tennessee last night. On our way home to Memphis we decided to stop at El Nopal in Oakland, Tennessee. It was great. Not your typical Mexican restaurant. They had your staples, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc...but they also had many unique dishes with interesting combinations. My sister had a melange of grilled shrimp... More

My family loves this place!!! This is our number one spot to visit when we come into town to visit our family. My husband and I always split the full order of mixed fajitas. They always have a huge portion of steak, shrimp, and chicken along with the grilled onions and green bell peppers served on a steaming skillet. We... More

Everyone liked the food here, and we were here because it came highly recommended. I tried a new dish (to them and to me), something 'guerrero', with shrimp, chicken, and pork (or beef?), and vegetables over rice with a very tasty sauce. I LOVE to spice up my food - my wife was shocked that I ate this huge plate... More

We just moved to the Oakland area, trying out the places to eat El Nopal is delicious but the service is a joke. Very inattentive, Forgot, and Rude.

NEVER had a bad experience, and I've eaten here for years. Never gotten diarrhea or gotten ripped off. The lunch fajitas are the best bargain around...so flavorful. Salsa not too spicy either. Best sweet tea of anywhere!!!

Another average, kinda clean country restaurant. The owners don't take pride in their facility but the food is not bad.

Great service, drinks, food, and atmosphere. The fajitas for two is an awesome choice for lunch or dinner. Enchiladas are great too. They make a killer strawberry daiquiri.
