I had the El Nopal Special which consisted of shredded chicken seasoned, rolled inside a flour tortilla and covered with a green sour cream based sauce and shredded white cheese ..... That was it; no beans, no rice. For 8.99 it should come with sides...More

I had lunch today with three friends and enjoyed a "fajita salad" that was very tasty. I particularly like the dressing they serve with the salad. The taco bowl was fresh and served hot. Service was friendly and prices were very reasonable.
