My place to go for great TexMex grub. I have to admit to coming here or Nopalitos #3 on a daily basis. Can not beat the prices or the quality of the food. Extensive menu with too many choices. The daily specials are great and inexpensive. Cost less than going to McDonalds or Burger King and healthier. Size of portions... More

Had the migas and they were delicious! Can't say we've ever had a bad meal Usually come with a large group and they always do a great job of taking care of us!

Everything is pretty bland, and there is nothing unique or special about the food. The building is well worn and the service is spotty. There are better choices, but the prices are low.

We always go eat at El Nopalito for breakfast. Good service and food. The restaurant has a drive through that is always packed.

Well one of our favorites on our yearly trip is not up to the old standards. We have always enjoyed this restaurant, but something has gone wrong. Everything we tried was tasteless or tasted old. The tortillas were hard, the queso tasted canned, the shrimp stunk, I could go on but why? I don't know what has happened this year... More

My husband wanted to eat here. I was a little nervous since it looks like a grocery store from the outside. But the food was great. The place was busy, even at 9 on a Monday morning. You can order from regular menu during breakfast. And they serve breakfast all day. Will definitely go back. Yum!
