La Nap, as the locals call it, is a run-of-the-mill inexpensive Mexican place that turns out fast fatty food that varies in quality from visit to visit. The male waiters seem barely interested in their jobs, females better, and have left us unserviced for long stretches of time...consistently. It used to be the only local place for Mexican, but now... More

We love the food here, and the servers are wonderful. If you like Mexican food this is it! We frequent this place regularly, and are never unsatisfied.

Came here for my daughter's rehearsal. They had a large table set up in the middle of the restaurant. The waiter was very efficient for our party of 24. We did not care for our steak fajitas , the meat was very tough and the flavor was off, but we did not hear a lot of other complaints.

La Nopolera is always BUSY but worth the wait! Once at your table, a server will bring unlimited chips and salsa. Margaritas are available in a variety of flavors served frozen or on the rocks. Daily specials offer $$ savings and are listed on the chalkboard. Lunch specials are offered too. You can always order to go. Dining is casual... More

They were a bit busy and the service was somewhat slower than it has been in the past. No fault of the server but just somewhat slower due to customers. Everyone had good experience. My flour tortillas tasted as if they were old or something. Not quite sure but maybe old or different brand... Salsa/chips are always plenty and tasty.... More

Food was served quickly and arrived hot. As always it was flavorful and well presented. One difficulty is getting the attention of the waiter if you need anything refilled. They are very busy and do not always return to tables to check on customers they have already served.

I will start by saying that we frequent another location of this family run place. We have become disenchanted at our usual location and came here at a friends request. I am so glad we did! We were seated right away at a table. I was telling my friend that we usually hold out for a booth and hunker down... More

I believe this was the original La Nopalera which relocated from an older building to a new one a few doors down in orange park across from the hospital. Parking is okay and wait may be 20 minutes or more during during peak dining times. Take is available but you miss out on the atmosphere. We eat there frequently and... More

I struggled to see any true Mexican flavor, and I thought it being a below average TexMex place to eat. I must say that the lunch specials are cheap though.

Great authentic Mexican food. Burritos, Enchiladas, refried beans and rice were excellent. Unlimited chips and salsa. Good atmosphere. Great prices on the amount of food that you get. Best Mexican in Jacksonville
