We usually choose El Nopal Mexican restaurant when we want to eat Mexican food locally. Service is good, good selection of dishes, and quality is always consistent.

I had lunch at El Nopal today. They have good Mexican food served by a friendly staff. The staff was as good as at any restaurant I have visited. The lunch prices are very reasonable. When passing through, I will eat there again.

The food was sub par. Besides the fact it took forever to get it the taste was nothing amazing. My big hang up on the restaurant is the service. We recently visited on election day.

This place always looks packed from the road but once you get in they will seat you almost immediately. The food was very good and is typical food you would expect in a Mexican place in America. I will definitely go back again!

Came here for a weekday business lunch with several colleagues. Terrific service from our waitress who kept our drinks and the chips and salsa always refreshed. Food was fresh, tasty, hot and in large portions. Would absolutely return the next time I am in the area.

Thank Ubmal
