If you cannot find anything to eat at El Nopal, perhaps you should have gone to the Pancake House. A wide and deep menu of more Tex-Mex style food. Great big portions, and a very reasonable price. Seated immediatly, and a man immediatly put down...More

The food is good, however the AC is so cold that you need a jacket just to eat here. We have eaten here for years and it just gets colder and colder.....to the point that I don't want to eat here anymore

I ordered the cheese enchiladas with ranchero beef on top. They were plump and full of cheese, but the sauce was minimal not as tasty as I had hoped. The service was good, and I would try something different next time.
