La Nopalera is by far the best Mexican food I have ever had! When my family visits from out of town this is always a must on their to dine places.

I love Mexican food. I could eat it every day. This place is great. However, be patient when they are busy. They are just like any other busy restaurant.

Near the entrance there are framed notices saying Jacksonville residents chose La Nopalera as the best Mexican restaurant in Jax. Really? It is barely adequate. Certainly nothing special.

We waited so long for our food, the restaurant was so loud. Like extremely loud. We could not hear eachother speak. The servers walked around in shorts with their bums hanging out. Not a nice place and definitely not for families.

Not the best Mexican I have had, however, pretty darn good. Seems close to authentic. I ordered the Enchiladas Rancheros which were pretty good.
