La Nopalera moved to this new location and it has a lot of charm. The food is outstanding and plenty of it. Parking can be a problem, but if your patient you'll locate one. Love this place!

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.
