“Get the Comida Corrida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Most people from the USA do not know about the best lunchtime bargain at Mexican restaurants.
It's called "Comida Corrida" and it's like a 'blue plate special' or as my receipt said "special of the day" (Especial del Dia)
It's a drink, a bowl of soup and a plate of delicious food. Different every day. Mine today was 75 pesos, or less than $6 (US) You also get the every present bowl of salsa, and pico de gallo with chips included

“Atmosphere Can Be Overrated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Okay, it's in a shopping mall. That's forgotten shortly after your server brings the food! The shrimp special presentation was almost better than the meal itself. The mexican dishes were authentic, generous and delicious. We've been here serveral times and have never been dissappointed. While you are enjoying the meal, they have entertainment by a one-man keyboard/singer who will always bring a smile to your face with his interpretations of any song you can request. The bill for the dinner will also be a pleasant surprise.

“No Atmosphere, but Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Located in an indoor mall you can't expect much for atmosphere, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it...!!! We started coming here for breakfast, after having gone to the restaurant next door for breakfast as well. Of the two, we now prefer Nopalitos. Great breakfast choices for every taste - pancakes, both gringo and Mexican egg dishes, etc...

This year, on a whim, we decided to go there for dinner for the first time. We were a party of seven and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My wife had a shrimp platter, others had Mexican combo plates, and I had a wonderful seafood dish served in a pineapple with shrimp, fish, octopus, pineapple and melted cheese - unbelievable. One of the best meals I had in NV this trip.

If you're going out to eat to have a good meal and the atmosphere isn't a deal breaker, I highly recommend giving Nopalitos a try.

“Possibly our favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Who would have guessed that a restaurant in the mall would be what we remembered most. The food...delicious! The service...WoW! Everything we ate there was fantastic. We were impressed when they remembered us. The prices are reasonable too. Highly recommend!
