My husband and I dine at El Nopal at least once, but often twice, a week. The staff is so great we gave them Christmas gifts this past year. It truly has some great mexican food with large portions at reasonable prices. Their "made at the table" guacamole is excellent and I usually choose Diana's Special for dinner - shrimp & chicken smothered in rice and cheese dip - delicious! My husband hands down likes the chicken fajita quesadilla best. Margaritas are great and another good value. In the spring and summer they open up the walls on the covered patio and have live music. All that said don't come here if you want a fancy booth, good food presentation, matching decor or a fine restroom. The chairs nor the lighting fixtures match, food is served on whiteware, the bathroom needs updating and there are splits in the vinyl on the booth seats. However, if you are looking for a neighborhood place where people are smiling and catching up with one another over a good meal, this is the best!
