El Nopal is a family owned restaurant serving authentic Mexican food. We opened in October of 1993. The owner is from San Jose de La Paz Jalisco Mexico. We chose the name El Nopal because his father had a bar in Jalisco called El Nopal. We are very grateful to our customers for choosing to eat Mexican cuisine with us. We are truly appreciative of you all..!!!
Greeted and seated immediately. Alejandra took our drink order and Queso order, team member brought us Warm chips and salad within seconds. Poof – dinner arrived at our table with 6 minutes.
Carne Asada, refried beans and guacamole are so yum-yum in my tum!!!
Son gives his kids Quesadilla dish two thumbs up…!!
I have always enjoyed El Nopal for a great little neighborhood Mexican restaurant. Way better than Rosalita’s.I had a little mixup with a to go order the other day. The manner in which they corrected the issue was far beyond what I would expect and completely restored my confidence in what a fine restaurant it is. The manager/owner said that our business is very important to them and that’s why they handle it the way they did. First class. I will continue to be a great customer.
This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to! Great food, fast, huge menu, great staff, and the owner is super friendly. The food is well priced and the staff is very fast and always attentive to what the table needs! Cannot recommend this place enough! It’s our go to Mexican restaurant!
I highly recommend el nopal!! Great food very friendly staff. My girlfriends family have been eating here for 24/25 years. One of the best staffs around just a great local family owned establishment!
I was introduced to this place 15 years ago at it’s Washington location. I live in Fenton and not long after found out there was a location in Valley Park! My husband and I have frequented ever since.. They’ve consistently had great food for a great value! I recommend their “Cadillac” margarita (an off menu item) pretty much everything on the menu is good! Try it, you’ll like it!
Best Mexican restaurant in all of STL, staff is always great , food is delicious . A family favorite .
Great food · Large menu
Ive been coming to El Nopal every week for nearly 10 years. Why? Great food. Great service. Great management. And the place is always clean! The same manager and waiters/ waitresses have been there for 10 years. That says a lot about the management and owner. I can’t say enough positive things about this place. El Nopal is one of my favorite restaurants.
