“Hands-down the BEST Mexican food in KY!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Where should I start? My husband and I eat Mexican food once per week. After moving from Lexington recently to the Louisville area, we've began exploring new venues. We found El Nopal in NewAlbany. We ordered the seafood fajitas for two along with the gold margaritas. Wow! After hundreds Mexican food meals, this was truly THE BEST! The seafood was so fresh, and the margaritas was EVEN BETTER! The mix wasn't over-powering and they weren't short on the tequila! We're 10min from there now and can't wait to return! Bravo gentlemen! Great job!

“Great food-poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Best mexican food in southern Indiana, food comes fast after ordering but---its getting someone to wait on you thats the problem. Every time we go,there are several waiters standing around but you have to beg one to come and take your order. After the meal, you have to wait forever to get your check to pay.
