This is the closest we've come to finding a great Mexican restaurant since moving from Texas. The salsa (spicy but not hot) and chips were quite yummy. Hubby and I both ordered the enchilada dinner. It came with a beef, a chicken and a cheese enchilada all covered with a ranchero (red) sauce, sour cream, lettuce & tomatoes. I also... More

Thought we'd have light lunch. We had so much food bought half home. The margaritas were 2 for one didn't know it so good. Quesadillas salad was huge and delicious. And the number one which was a taco and and salad with beans and a chile relleno was humongous. We ended up bringing home the beans and the salad that... More

Food was great!!!! Atmosphere seemed a little tired. Staff was working hard but seemed to be working for money not really enjoying their job. Place could be great, needs manager presence on the floor. I know that the basics and foundation are taken care of but needs a little push to make the experience memorable. Very consistent choice for dinner... More

La Nopalera's has fresh food but just average - nothing special. The service was good and the place was very shabby - would not try again.

met a couple of old friends for some margaritas and appetizers and to share some old times and good stories. Some of the best frozen margaritas around this town. I will be back!

Left IPhone on table. Went back to get it and they said they didn't have it! I WILL NEVER, EVER, GO BACK TO THIS PLACE! Waitress left the restaurant after taking our order! We saw her driving back as we were leaving! Horrible service. Sad, because we went quite a bit. Specially when freinds would visit.
