Great food, friendly service and reasonably priced. It is a family favorite ! I live in Tulsa,Ok and visit family here on the island. Nopalera is always on my list of places to eat. The chicken echiladas are fantastic. But their beans are my favorite.

Food was good, it was too hot in there for me. Didn't seem to have central air. Very attentive wait staff.

Great place for breakfast and lunch. Try the big chorizo and egg breakfast taco or the pork chop plate if you are in the mood for meat. Good prices. Friendly service. Lots of seating but parking limited. They are closed on Monday's.
