We stumbled upon this restaurant while in Pacific, MO for a wedding. The food was excellent, service outstanding, and the drinks were great! Huge portions for the price! Will be back when we are back in town!

This restaurant has moved from it Hill Top Village Center location to 106 South Central in Eureka. Our food was good, and the service was average. I especially like the rice that was served with our main courses. However, the wall décor was dirty and dusty. The server was nice about this complaint and cut our dining bill in half.

The food was great, as well as the service. We'll be back. The steak meals were wonderful. The location is 106 S Central on the opposite side of the freeway.

This restaurant moved to old town Eureka and the good news it did not get flooded. We had a plate with three choices from the menu. All the items were very tasty, especially my Chilli Relleno. I don't often find this item on the menu. I also had a beef taco and a chicken encillada with green sauce. They also... More

I like El Nopal! It was REALLY good when it was at the Hilltop location and Vincent was the manager. What a personable guy. I still love it though but lately I find the grilled vegetables are not cooked at all. Rather a hit or miss with the salsa and guacomole - best when they remember to use the cilantro!

Food was great, service was exceptional and we were served very quickly. It's a great place to rest during a long six flags trip.

At the time of this review El Nopal was #1 restaurant in Eureka here on TripAdvisor. It's the first time I've strongly disagreed with a ranking on TA. I'm sure after more reviews come in this place won't hold onto the #1 spot in Eureka. It was a nice restaurant and the choices and prices were great. The wait staff... More
