Took my daughters to Los Nopales and had pretty much the best meal in the Tucson area. So amazing! Can't wait to go again. Great place to go if on the way to or from the Desert Museum!

What a treat to eat here! Such tasty food made fresh. We started with the homemade chips and salsa that was almost addictive! We shared a cheese crisp and fish tacos - both excellent! YUM!

The food was very good to excellent. The star among the four meals was the “Machaca burro”. Also, the hot salsa was beyond expectation. The drawback was the “ambience“ and cleanliness. Ambience would not be expected at this location and for these prices. However, to...More
