Best Mexican Restaurant in town. Service is fast and friendly. Although Taco Burger has decent Tacos too but atmosphere here tops it

The food here was good and priced right. Atmosphere was enjoyable. My only complaint was the obnoxious music they play when it's someone's birthday.

Staff is very friendly and always quick to serve, no matter how packed they are they make sure to check on each table, replenish salsa n nachos and drinks as needed. You get what you pay for, great food and great service!!!

Seriously, I sometimes wonder what restaurant some of these reviewers ate at. There is no atmosphere there. Booths line the walls and the remainder of tables were all set up for 8 people? Not much in the way of decorations. We were seated, Mine'va brought us our water and left. Two other people came in about 5 minutes after us.... More

Actually had set out to try a competitor's Mexican restaurant just down the street, but 2 hours after opening, their parking lot was still empty. NEVER a good sign! Even just judging from the parking lot, La Nopalera was a better choice. The restaurant appears small from the outside, but is quite large inside. Food was very good, spiced just... More

Love the atmosphere, food, quick service, and great staff! Great prices! They have a huge menu that has something for everyone. Eaten here many, many times.

A very good dinner for all including a Mexican-American. Service was very good with the longest delay in getting the queso. Dinners were served hot and reasonable promptly. Portions are ample and my wife usually shares and may still have some to take home. Prefer over Agave and suggest you try La Nopalera first.

Service was excellent, food was on time. I was a little disappointed to hear people behind me order fajitas and that this was their first venture into guacamole. La Napolera is traditional around the corner Mexican restaurant. They provide ample quantity and home style Mexican food. It is not Fridays or chilis....the spices are not the same. The servers are... More

Sadly, the staff appeared to not understand either English or Spanish. But to be fair, it wasn't their ability to chat that was poor. It is their ability to listen and complete the customer's request. The attention to satisfaction and the other food or drink 'need' was NOT even afforded. The staff appeared to be more interested in sitting around... More

Food was as usual ample, served hot and in good time, and tasty. The pre-service young lady was very good and took care of the chips and salsa very quickly. The waitress was not so quick for the drink orders, not attentive during the meal, and overall seemed to have little interest in meeting our needs. A bit disappointing this... More
