My favorite at La Nope is the queso blanco, or white cheese, which is melted on the refried beans. We went for dinner, and had several disappointments. First, it was almost too dark to see, and when we pointed out that numerous lights were out, the server said that the ladder was broken. Then, the food was just not as... More

Nothing's better than "La Nop" - real Mexican food, great marguaritas, good service - ALL MEXICAN - and lots of fun. If you're having a birthday, be prepared for the noise! Have been going for years and love it every time, especially the white cheese. Don't miss this - all locations are great.

This has been a favorite for years here in Jax. The food is great, prices cheap, the portions extremely generous and most nights the wait time is nominal. The decor/atmosphere leaves something to be desired and the wait staff is never the same, so service is iffy. But overall a good solid eating place.

Been here a few times with our daughter and friends from a local college. Of course they love it, cheap food and drinks. Beer, margaritas are cold and cheap. Food is cheap but so so. Service is good. Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired.

Beef tacos were ok not great! Chicken fajitas were bad. Chicken was tough and seemed like it had been in the freezer a Lon time! Salsa was just ok. Would not go back!
